Real Madrid are set to lose Cristiano Ronaldo for the Madrid derby against Atletico, whilst he could also miss next week’s game against Borussia Dortmund.
Reports in Spain have it that the Portuguese forward will skip the weekend’s derby at the Vicente Calderon after suffering a thigh injury in the warm-up ahead of Wednesday evening’s game against Borussia Dortmund.
AS say that Ronaldo played through the midweek 4-1 defeat to the Germans with the discomfort, but that it will now keep him out of the weekend clash with Atleti.
The player is understood to be undergoing intensive physiotherapy in an attempt to have him fit for Tuesday’s return leg against Dortmund at the Santiago Bernabeu.
