The Portuguese hit-man will face late fitness tests after being ruled out of the Madrid derby.
Real Madrid may have even more of a struggle to overturn their 4-1 deficit to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, as Cristiano Ronaldo could miss the semi final second-leg through injury.
Ronaldo picked up muscle pain in Dortmund on Wednesday, when four goals from striker Robert Lewandowski put the German side fully in advantage to progress to the final.
The 28-year-old netted the only goal for the away side during the rout in Germany, his 12th in 11 European matches this season, and his scoring ability would certainly be missed at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday.
The former Manchester United man has already been ruled out of tonight’s Madrid derby with the injury, as Jose Mourinho’s side look to break away from Atletico Madrid with only three points separating them in La Liga.
It’s been another outstanding year for Ronaldo, with the Portuguese netting 53 goals in 54 matches for Real in all competitions – although even scoring 31 Spanish league goals in as many matches leaves him 12 short of Lional Messi’s total.
Unlike many footballers with huge price tags, the Los Blancos No.7 never let his world record £80million transfer fee affect his football and much to the disbelief of Premier League fans, Ronaldo’s form actually improved after moving to the Spanish capital.
The Portugal skipper was the fastest player in Real’s illustrious history to reach 100 goals for the club and since his arrival in Spain in 2009 he has scored an almost unbelievable 203 goals.
Mourinho will certainly be wanting Ronaldo in his starting XI on Tuesday if the side want any chance of overturning the 4-1 score set by Dortmund.
