Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez, Sergio Ramos out for a long haul

Real Madrid will be without the services of midfielder James Rodriguez for around two months, while Sergio Ramos’ left hamstring injury will keep him out for around three weeks. James was forced to leave the field after just 10 minutes of his side’s 2-1 win at home to Sevilla, which moved them four points clear of FC Barcelona. He had scored his side’s opening goal in the win, but then received a blow on his right foot, reports Xinhua.

X-rays subsequently showed he has broken his fifth metatarsal bone, an injury which requires and operation and will sideline him for around two months.That means he will miss around 12 matches, depending on how Real Madrid progress in the last 16 of this season’s Champions League. The Colombian had been in excellent form in recent weeks and had also opened the scoring at the weekend when Real Madrid defeated Real Sociedad.

James was not the only player to pick up an injury on Wednesday night with central defender Ramos injuring his left hamstring. Ramos’ injury especially gives Real coach Carlos Ancelotti a selection headache ahead of Saturday’s Madrid derby away to Atletico Madrid.
