Sergio Ramos played his 550th game for Real Madrid in Wednesday's LaLiga win at Leganés, and celebrated the milestone in the dressing room.
Bale, Ceballos missing from Real Madrid's group pic
The captain took to social media after the 3-1 victory to post a photograph of himself posing with his team-mates and holding a commemorative shirt. However, two men are notably nowhere to be seen: Gareth Bale and Dani Ceballos.

Un honor llegar a los 550 partidos con este escudo... y los que me quedan. 😉

Bale benched, Ceballos limited to 30 seconds on the pitch
Although Luca Zidane and Borja Mayoral are also missing, Bale and Ceballos' absence is particularly conspicuous. Having been named on the bench for last week's Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain, the Welshman was again a substitute, while Ceballos had to settle for the briefest of run-outs.
The midfielder was restricted to a 30-second appearance in time added on at Butarque, despite Real having a host of players unavailable and coach Zinedine Zidane taking the opportunity to rotate his team in the LaLiga week 16 fixture.
Neither will have been in the mood to celebrate.
