Report: Ronaldo "a Serious Doubt" for UCL Semi Second-Leg

MOST COMMENTED

Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly suffering from a thigh injury, will definitely miss Saturday’s Madrid derby against Atletico at the Vicente Calderon this weekend, and is looking a “serious doubt” for Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League semifinal series second-leg against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, according to a report in Spain.

Spanish daily AS claims the Merengues’ forward developed a muscle problem in his left thigh during the warm-up in Dortmund that was not reported during the first-leg, which Dortmund won comfortably, 4-1. Real has yet to publicly comment on its star player’s injury, with the Portugal international reportedly undergoing intensive physiotherapy so he can return for the crucial second-leg in Madrid.

Meanwhile, ESPN reports that Real coach Jose Mourinho is expected to reach “deep into his squad” for the Madrid derby, with youth team players Casemiro, Nacho and Alvaro Morata all tipped to start. Los Blancos are currently three points ahead of third-place Atletico in the La Liga standings, with six games remaining.
