Zidane plays down Ronaldo injury in Barcelona game

Football Real Madrid reach Champions League final Zidane plays down Ronaldo injury in Barcelona game

But Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is confident that Ronaldo will play against Liverpool in the Champions League final on May 26.

The Portugal captain made it through to the interval but succumbed to the injury at half-time but Zidane is not concerned about his fitness.

The challenge from Gerard Pique had come as Ronaldo cancelled out Luis Suarez's opener before Sergi Roberto was sent off on the stroke of half-time for an altercation with Real defender Marcelo.

Real Madrid have struggled in the league this campaign, and following Sunday night's 2-2 draw in a tempestuous Clasico, the Santiago Bernabeu club are 15 points behind their fierce rivals. He said it wasn't much, but we'll see tomorrow, we'll do some tests to see the extend of the damage done to his ankle.

Zidane's decision to bring Marco Asensio for the five-time Ballon d'Or victor raised eyebrows and concern over his fitness with the upcoming UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool and the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Right now it's not good, but it's going to be minor.

Ronaldo could now be rested for Madrid's final three league games of the season, which come against Sevilla, Celta Vigo and Villarreal. They can finish above Diego Simeone's side if they win all their games, but it remains to be seen if Zidane will risk Ronaldo ahead of the Champions League final, which is just six days after the end of the La Liga season ends. "I would have liked to win, although it was a good game for the fans, there was nothing in play between Barca and Madrid today, but we saw a good game with intensity, with goals, from both teams".
