After qualifying in a tough battle against the Ligue 1 giants PSG, in the Round of 16 of the Champion's League, Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is under huge pressure as their main man, their skipper, Sergio Ramos has already faced a booking. Ramos picked up his 33rd career yellow in the competition on Tuesday against Paris Saint-Germain, breaking a record held by former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes. The Spain international went late into a challenge on PSG midfielder Javier Pastore, earning the caution in the 78th minute at Parc des Princes. 

Ramos is one of the best centre backs of the present generation and he proved that in the round of 16 against PSG. At the age of 31 also, he completely outplayed the young superstars like Neymar and Kylian Mbappé. His presence makes a big impact on the other defenders as we can see clearly that in his absence, how the team's defending scuffles up. 

He has had an incredible impact at Madrid having joined from Sevilla as a teenager in 2005, and he was made club captain following the departure of Iker Casillas in 2015 – skippering the club to consecutive Champions League titles in the past two seasons. But the only problem he has faced most of the times since then is he can't keep his cool at some serious points which gets him and even his coaches in serious troubles. 

Also the rivalry between Sergio Ramos and the Juventus striker Mario Mandžukić is well-known and if by any means he enrolls himself in a fight with him or even a slight brutal tackle can get him and the whole Real Madrid team in serious trouble. Ramos has got a horribly bad image for engrossing in solo/team fights and Juventus could use this weakness to get him booked once again, which would make their way much easier.    

But despite his attitude and record, he is a talisman for Real fans for scoring those extraordinary goals at the dying moment and turning the match on its head and without him it would a very tough way for Real to carry on. Let's just hope he keeps up his cool and that's what all the Real fans and even the coach himself would be praying for.
