Ramos beats Gento's LaLiga appearance haul
The captain featured for the 428th time and is in sixth spot in the club's all-time appearance ranking.
It will be the second time the Italian referee has overseen the Whites in this competition.
“If we want to achieve important things, we need continuity and to put more into our play”, claimed the coach.
Other madridistas who have made history with the Spanish national side, such as Raúl, Butragueño and Casillas, congratulated the captain.
The Whites remain unbeaten after beating Obradoiro away for a fifth win in a row.
The youth-team graduate made 13 rebounds against Obradoiro, a record that no player had reached as a youth.
The two madridistas and Lunin, on loan at Valladolid, are in the final list of 20 players looking to win the award, which will be announced on 16 December.
