The 1-1 draw away from home against Rayo Vallecano was far from the result Carlo Ancelotti and Co. hoped for earlier this week. Wasting no time, however, the focus now shifts to the next La Liga clash on their schedule, against Sevilla at home.

Of all of the storylines the clash between Los Blancos and Los Nervionenses brings, however, the most important one is certainly Sergio Ramos’ return to the Santiago Bernabeu.

The veteran defender defined an era for Real Madrid, leading their greatest-ever team to innumerable titles at the famed stadium.

On Sunday he will return, albeit in different colours, possibly for the last time as a player.

Tribute organised

The former club captain’s return to the stadium where he rewrote history with some of the greats of the game is indeed a monumental occasion.

The management at Real Madrid recognise the same and are thus planning something special for Ramos on the night.

As revealed by Edu Aguirre, Real Madrid wish to honour their former player on the night in front of the fans at the Nuevo Santiago Bernabeu.

The exact plan is yet to be revealed, but it is clear that it will be an emotional affair conveying the club’s and fans’ gratitude to the player.

After all the iconic years Ramos has given not just Real Madrid but also Spanish football, it is only deserved for him to receive a worthy sendoff. After all, his departure from Real Madrid was far from the dream exit many hoped for him.

Two stars down

The emotional plan aside, Real Madrid will have a hard-fought game to play out on Sunday night against Sevilla. After all, going up against a team with Sergio Ramos is seldom an easy task.

To add to the manager’s troubles, both Eduardo Camavinga and Dani Carvajal will be unavailable for the clash this weekend through suspension. Needless to say, the side, once again, faces serious problems with personnel.

The one silver lining, however, is that Antonio Rudiger is expected to return to the lineup against Sevilla in what will be a massive boost to Real Madrid’s defence. Having drawn their game last weekend, all eyes will be on a return to winning ways later this week.

Even with all the excitement around Kylian Mbappe, it is Vinicius Junior, who continues to be Real Madrid’s biggest star.

In the past few years, the Brazilian has witnessed substantial growth, notably establishing himself as one of the best players in world football.

Vinicius’ rapid rise to prominence has been backed by numbers as well, with the forward racking up 82 goals and 75 assists in 262 competitive matches for Real Madrid.

Vinicius on receiving advice from Ronaldo

In a recent media interaction, Vinicius Junior, when talking about his success at Real Madrid, revealed that the forward constantly receives advice from his compatriot and former Real Madrid legend Ronaldo.

Vinicius particularly pointed out Ronaldo’s advice in 1v1 situations and how it has helped him improve in such scenarios.

“Ronaldo always calls me and gives me advice, he teaches me so many things. Since he told me that his favourite thing is a 1v1 vs a GK, I thought about it a lot and started working on it really hard,” Vinicius said (h/t Madrid Zone).

“Now, every time I’m in a 1v1 with a GK, I’m the calmest guy in the world. Ever since that conversation with Ronaldo, I stopped being afraid of making mistakes in a 1v1,” the forward added.

Vinicius has indeed witnessed an improvement in his 1v1 play in recent years, which has been reflected in his higher goalscoring numbers.

This season, the forward has netted 23 goals in all competitions while racking up 11 assists. His goalscoring prowess, coupled with his ability in 1v1 situations could prove to be critical as Real Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final next month.

The Brazilian international, though, will be up against a challenging defensive duo of Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck, who have been able to keep the opposition attacks quiet this season.
