MADRID – Real Madrid went through a training session Wednesday without team captain and defender Sergio Ramos, four days ahead of their final La Liga match against Real Betis.
It was the first team practice since Madrid’s 3-1 away defeat to Real Sociedad on Sunday, which added to the club’s woes in a season that it would like to forget as the team has lost any chance of winning a title or cup.
Ramos, who trained alone during the session, is recovering from a muscle injury that has sidelined him since April 3, in a bid to take part in upcoming international play.
Coach Zinedine Zidane led the practice, in which midfielders Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, defender Marcelo, and forwards Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale took part.
Madrid is set to host Real Betis in a contest corresponding to the last La Liga matchday scheduled for Sunday.
