Ramos is now Madrid’s designated penalty taker following Ronaldo’s summer switch to Juventus. But Los Blanco fans got a sense of deja vu after the ball flew into the net in the 63rd minute.In the absence of the greatest goalscorer football has ever seen, the Real Madrid captain has been promoted to penalty duties and he slotted one nervelessly into the bottom right corner during the second half of the Super Cup against Atletico Madrid.
After scoring the goal, Ramos sprinted away to the corner and did a Ronaldo-like celebration, before his teammates ran in to congratulate the defender.
Don’t take our words for it, watch it for yourself. Was that a dig? This is coming days after Sergio Ramos responded to recent comments from Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo raised some eyebrows in the Spanish capital when he spoke of how he is so pleased that Juventus feels like a family and the Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has hit back, saying that there is a family atmosphere at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu as well.
Oh well watch the video already….stop reading (for now) WATCH!
In a moment of madness, the 32-year-old mimicked the celebration that the Portuguese star has used for years. He leaped high into the air before he slammed his arms down by his side.
When they parted, Ramos did the best impression of Conor McGregor’s Billionaire Strut. Overwhelmed by Ramos’ act, the MMA fighter also liked and retweeted a video of the celebration act.
However, it was Atletico that who won the match. Costa scored the equaliser 11 minutes from full time, courtesy to Juanfran’s error correction with an early pass to Angel Correa, before Costa tapped it home.
Eight minutes into the added time, Saul smashed a volley to the top right corner to put the Red and Whites in the lead, before Koke killed Real Madrid’s hope of a fightback.
This was for the first time that Atletico had defeated their Spanish rivals in a final. Also, Real Madrid, who were aiming for their third straight trophy, had never conceded four goals under previous manager Zinedine Zidane.
