Ronaldo doubtful for Rayo and City games

Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, is struggling against time to get fit for Real Madrid’s match against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday after he picked up a thigh muscle injury.

The 31-year-old Portuguese, who is the top scorer in La Liga with 31 goals, was seen limping off clutching his thigh at the end of Real Madrid’s 3-0 win over Villarreal on Wednesday.

After series of tests was conducted on the Madeira-born superstar in the Spanish capital, Madrid, the club released an official statement which reads: “Ronaldo has been diagnosed with a muscle strain in his right thigh. His recovery will continue to be assessed.”

Ronaldo could also miss the UEFA Champions League semi-final first leg at Manchester City on Tuesday.
