Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo may miss Wednesday’s King’s Cup final against Barcelona after his club announced he had a muscle injury in his left thigh.
Real did not say how long the Portugal captain, who has also been suffering from a knee problem, would be sidelined but local media reported he would almost certainly not be available for the final at Valencia’s Mestalla stadium, a repeat of the 2011 showpiece when Ronaldo scored in Real’s 1-0 win.
“Medical tests performed on Cristiano Ronaldo have revealed an injury to the player’s left biceps femoris muscle,” Real said in a brief statement on their website.
Ronaldo was rested for Real’s Champions League game at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, when the Spanish club lost 2-0 but went through to the semi-finals 3-2 on aggregate.
Spanish media reported he had picked up the thigh strain in a training session the previous day, with sports daily As saying he would be out for two weeks.
