Antonio Rudiger and Sergio Ramos clashed during the latter's debut game against Real Madrid since his return to the Spanish La Liga.

The match at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday, October 21, didn't leave much room for nostalgic reflection, as the former Spain international concentrated on propelling his current team away from the La Liga relegation zone.

Demonstrating his trademark combative style, he took up position on the left side of central defence alongside Nemanja Gudelj, managing to avoid a yellow card.

Nonetheless, for those anticipating a confrontation, the game did not disappoint, as cited by SportBIBLE.

Ramos clashes with Rudiger

In the 42nd minute, the 37-year-old confronted Real's Rudiger, one of the players effectively brought in to fill his shoes after his arrival in the summer of 2022, One Football reports.

The encounter marked a clash between two of football's fiercest competitors. While expectations were high for sparks to fly in a fiery confrontation, Ramos's approach didn't lead to the usual outcome.

Despite the intimidating advance, Rudiger refused to back down, responding to Ramos's aggression with an unexpected reaction - laughter.
