Real Madrid welcome Valencia to the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday as they aim to maintain their winning start to the defence of their La Liga title. Zinedine Zidane’s side saw off Deportivo La Coruna 3-0 in their opener, although the victory was slightly marred by a red card to Sergio Ramos, which will rule him out of Sunday’s game. Valencia are also out to make it two wins from two, having beaten Las Palmas 1-0 on the opening day, thanks to Simone Zaza’s winner.
Ronaldo and Ramos will not play as both are suspended for the Real Madrid match against Valencia on Sunday. Ronaldo is finishing the second of a four-match ban for pushing a referee after he had sent him off during the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup. He also missed the second leg for the sending off.
Cristiano Ronaldo remains suspended following his five-match ban picked up in the Spanish Super Cup, and he is joined by Ramos after the club failed to get his red card rescinded, per Dermot Corrigan at ESPN FC.Ramos’ absence means Raphael Varane should come into the team to partner Nacho Hernandez in the centre of defence.
