Zidane Ease Fear On Ronaldo Injury

Ronaldo departed Real Madrid’s Clasico clash with Barcelona at half-time after picking up what appeared to be an ankle injury, but Zinedine Zidane expects him to be available for a Champions League final date with Liverpool.

After Luis Suarez had put the hosts in front at Camp Nou just 10 minutes in, Ronaldo levelled matters just four minutes later.

However, he had to be attended to late in the first half after taking a knock. The 33-year-old was first left clutching his lower leg after finding the target.

Though Ronaldo eventually finished the opening 45 minutes, which saw Sergi Roberto sent off in the closing stages for Barcelona, he was replaced by Marco Asensio when the teams emerged for the second half.

Initial fears put his involvement in a Champions League final date with Liverpool on May 26 in doubt. Zidane has, however, moved to calm the concerns of Blancos supporters, with the Real boss confident that a knock picked up by his talismanic forward is only "minor" after initial tests determined a slight ankle sprain.
