Madrid: Cristiano Ronaldo’s chances of facing Manchester City in the second leg of Real Madrid’s Champions League semi-final on Wednesday were boosted as the Portuguese took a full part in training yesterday.
Ronaldo has missed Real’s last three games due to a thigh injury, but is expected to return against City. “Ronaldo and (Alvaro) Arbeloa completed the session while Karim Benzema was out running alone on the pitch,” Madrid said in a statement yesterday.
Ronaldo has been in blistering form in the Champions League this season, scoring 16 goals in 10 appearances. “If Manchester City have made it to the semi-finals, it’s because they’re an excellent team,” Ronaldo told Madrid’s website. “Knocking out PSG is not an easy task, but they managed to do it. They are a team with very few weaknesses.”
