Sergio Ramos comeback flops as Real Madrid gets eliminated from Champions League

25

Real Madrid CF had been hoping that the return of captain Sergio Ramos would help lift the team through to the UEFA Champions League final. Alas, the Spaniard’s comeback was not enough to get them past Premier League side Chelsea, who completely overpowered them for a 3-1 aggregate victory.

Chelsea welcomed Real Madrid for slaughter at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening, coming off a 1-1 draw at the first leg in Spain. Ramos missed the first leg and many other matches since the start of the year as he suffered multiple injuries and also came down with Covid-19. However, he managed to make it on the flight to London, and was a surprise starter despite not having played a single minute of competitive football since mid-March.
