Real has not made it clear how long the Captain will be out of action, however, the club said in a statement:
"Following the tests carried out today on our captain, Sergio Ramos, by the Real Madrid medical department, he has been diagnosed with a muscular injury to the internal calf in his left leg. His recovery will be monitored."

and next Saturday’s El Clasico againstBarcelona
Ramos shared a post on his Instagram, saying he is hurt that he might not be able to accompany his team in crucial matches ahead.
"Yesterday, after the game, I was training on the pitch and noticed a puncture in the left calf. Today I have had the tests and it has been confirmed that I have a muscle injury.
"If there is one thing that hurts me it is not being able to help the team in these games of the highest demand in which we play the season and also not be able to give back on the pitch the love and energy that you transmit to me.
"I can do nothing but speak frankly, work hard and encourage the team with the soul."
