Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos has tested positive for coronavirus but has already been ruled out of the Champions League quarter-final second leg at Liverpool on Wednesday due to a calf injury he sustained while on international duty with Spain. Raphael Varane also tested positive last week and has been self-isolating.

The Spanish club made this known via its official website.

Real Madrid are already without Lucas Vazquez who is expected to be out for the rest of the season after damaging his posterior knee ligament (PCL) in the Clasico on Saturday.

Vazquez was replaced by Alvaro Odriozola after 43 minutes, having already set up a goal in the 2-1 victory. Federico Valverde was also taken off with a knock in the second half.

Deal of the day

The 13-time European champions are 3-1 up against Liverpool from the first leg at Alfredo Di Stefano.

Vinicius Junior scored two of Real’s goals, one in each half, with Marco Asensio adding the other.
