Real Madrid are monitoring the development of an ankle injury suffered by Cristiano Ronaldo, making him a serious doubt for the weekend clash with Valencia.
Los Blancos will be looking to bounce back from their 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Barcelona at the Camp Nou when they face Los Che at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday evening.
However, they may be forced to do so without their talismanic Portuguese, who has suffered a bruise to the right ankle, and the club’s medical staff will continue to monitor the situation over the next 48 hours in order to assess the likelihood of his participation in the match. CR7 was expected in Zurich tomorrow as a representative of the 2018 Iberian World Cup bid, but now will not travel, instead resting the problem in the hope that he can recuperate in time.
Madrid will also be without striker Gonzalo Higuain for the match, as he may face surgery on a herniated disc, and also Sergio Ramos is out courtesy of the red card he collected against the Blaugrana.
