Cristiano Ronaldo to undergo tests on his ankle - Zinedine Zidane

Cristiano Ronaldo to undergo tests on his ankle - Zinedine Zidane”

Zinedine Zidane refused to put a time frame on Cristiano Ronaldo's injury absence after the forward had to be substituted at half-time in an entertaining 2-2 draw against Barcelona.

Reports from Marca believe that Brazilian superstar Neymar is willing to play alongside Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese star had pulled Madrid level with a goal from close range in the 14th minute, but in the process he was clattered into from behind by Barcelona defender Gerard Pique.

"He's not great right now but I think it's going to be a small thing, it was only a bad movement", Zidane told a news conference.

"I can not say how long he will be out", Zidane said after the draw. He played on until halftime before he was replaced by Marco Asensio.

The club did say, however, that Dani Carvajal - recovering after injuring a hamstring in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal at Bayern Munich on April 25 - "worked alone out on the pitch both with and without the ball".

Barca had Sergi Roberto sent off in first-half stoppage-time following a clash with Marcelo, but regained the lead through Lionel Messi seven minutes after the interval. "We will have him ready (to play)".

"Everyone who likes football can be happy with a game like that". In the end it was a draw and that's that. And while Real are trying to catch city rivals Atletico Madrid for second place, the focus must be on the Champions League final against Liverpool on May 26.
