Ronaldo to undergo tests on his ankle injury, confirms Zidane

Rita JamesMay 08, 2018

Cristiano Ronaldo is to have a scan on an ankle injury but is likely to be fit for Real Madrid's Champions League final with Liverpool, says boss Zinedine Zidane.

The home fans were raging as the half-time whistle blew but, with Marco Asensio on for Ronaldo, they were celebrating eight minutes after the restart. "I think we are the only unbeaten team in Europe in the big leagues and that is something that pushes us".

'Messi put him under a bit of pressure in the tunnel, I don't know if there are cameras, maybe he caused him to referee in the second half in a different way, ' Ramos said.

Lionel Messi scored a mesmerising, record-extending 26th goal in the Clasico to put 10-man Barca back in front after 52 minutes.

This was the first "Clasico" in a decade which had no bearing on the title race but the game was still played with all the usual passion and tension which makes it the most famous club fixture in Europe.

Suarez and Sergio Ramos started things off with a shoving match, Lionel Messi retaliated, and things only got worse from that point.

"I fouled Varane a little bit because he controls the ball and I catch his foot", Suarez admitted. "We knew what we were playing for. Maximum respect to Barcelona, but at that moment, he had not been touched at all".

- With their first goal, Real Madrid became the first team in El Clasico history to score 400 goals in all competitions (Barcelona have 389).

"It was a great game", Suarez said. We wanted to win and Madrid had a very good game in general. La Liga will introduce video technology next season and Zidane, rather pointedly, said: "Then we'll see how a match like this turns out". It would be a fitting end to the season if his improving form saw him star against Liverpool later this month. "It's a shame we couldn't win".

After several feisty challenges in the last minutes of the first half, the hosts were reduced to 10 men as Sergi Roberto was shown a straight red card following an incident with Madrid left back Marcelo.
