Sergio Ramos has been diagnosed with a calf injury, Real Madrid has confirmed.

Club captain Ramos missed Madrid's 2-1 victory over Eibar last Saturday and is expected to miss Monday's trip to Leganes.

Los Blancos released a statement confirming tests on Ramos had found "a grade one injury in the left soleus" but gave no timetable for his return.

Despite the return of Zinedine Zidane, Madrid's title chances are all but over as it sits 13 points behind LaLiga leader Barcelona with seven games remaining.

Champions League qualification is almost secure, though, with Madrid 11 points clear of Sevilla in fifth.
