BREAKING NEWS: Ronaldo set to miss Barcelona showdown

The Portuguese has suffered an injury in his left hamstring and is likely to miss the Copa del Rey final and is a doubt for the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals

Real Madrid have been dealt a serious blow with the news that Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to miss next week’s Copa del Rey final against Barcelona.

The Portuguese star limped off in the closing stages of his side’s Champions League quarter-final first leg win over Borussia Dortmund.

He subsequently sat out the 4-0 win over Real Sociedad at Anoeta and was an unused substitute in the return game against Jurgen Klopp’s side.

It has now been confirmed that the 29-year-old has an injury to his left hamstring, and is reportedly set to miss around two weeks of action, which would rule him out of the crucial Clasico.

Madrid survived a scare at the Westfalenstadion without Ronaldo to take a place in the semi-finals of the Champions League, but the former Manchester United man is a doubt for the first leg of the last four.

Madrid could face city rivals Atletico Madrid, Chelsea or reigning European champions Bayern Munich in the semi-finals.
