Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos reduced his side’s squad down to 10 men for five minutes during their victory over Eibar on Saturday as the defender had to respond to an emergency call of nature.
Ramos exited the pitch and went to the rest room in the 73rd minute at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium, with the match at a vulnerable scoreline of 1-1.
Ramos had been the reason for Eibar’s equalizer early in the second half, granting Ivan Ramis access to heading the ball into the net from a corner.
However, as Ramos wrapped up his rest room business and juggled back to the field Ronaldo smashed the net with a sharp header giving Madrid a 2-1 victory.
After the match, Zidane said: “Sergio went to the bathroom for a minute and then returned, nothing more.”
