Sergio Ramos posted a picture on one of his social media accounts showcasing the evolution of his broken nose which he sustained at the hands Lucas Hérnandez during Saturday's Madrid derby at the Wanda Metropolitano.
The Camas-born defender decided not to opt for an operation as was the case back in 2007 when he collided with Bayern Munich's Roy Makaay during a Champions League tie leaving the surgery to post season.
The player will miss the midweek Champions League clash against APOEL in Cyprus but is expected to play a role in Saturday's LaLiga game against lowly Malaga.
"I'd spill blood a thousand and one times for this shirt and badge. I'll be back soon" was the post message from the Madrid captain at the weekend with an accompanying image of blood dripping from his nose following the boot to the nose from the Atleti player.
