Ronaldo fit to face City


Cristiano Ronaldo is fit for Real Madrid's Champions League semi-final second-leg against Manchester City.

A thigh muscle strain prevented Ronaldo from featuring against Rayo Vallencano, City and Real Sociedad, but he has returned to full training and is '100 per cent' ahead of the visit of City to the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.

However, Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has revealed that Casemiro and Karim Benzema are struggle ahead of the game.

"Cristiano is 100 per cent. He trained this morning and he will be there tomorrow, but Benzema and Casemiro are different," Zidane told a press conference on Tuesday.

"I'd have liked to have Casemiro and Benzema, but it is not like that, others will play and they will do well. Karim today still had an issue, and we did not want to take any risks."

When asked whether Caseemiro will miss the match, Zidane added: "We will try, Casemiro is Casemiro, but we have other players who can do same work as he does. (It is) not a (serious) injury, but he had bruise and did not train today. We have a big enough squad to cover, if he can't play."
