Madrid: Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane claimed three-time World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo is 100 per cent fit for his side’s Champions League semi-final, second leg showdown with Manchester City today.
Ronaldo missed last week’s 0-0 draw in the first leg due to a thigh injury.
However, Zidane confirmed that Madrid will be missing two key players in Karim Benzema and midfielder Casemiro through injury.
“Cristiano is fine, he is 100 percent, that is why he trained this week and will be there for the match,” Zidane said.
“Karim and Casemiro are another thing. In the scan Karim still has a problem and we don’t want to risk him. It’s the same with Casemiro. He doesn’t have a serious injury but it is a dilemma and we also don’t want to risk him. We have a sufficient squad so that the rest can play.”
