Zidane confident Ronaldo will recover for Champions League final

"Even if we do not know when he will resume with the team, the fact that he is already there 48 hours after shows his commitment, his desire to always want to play". Just as Suarez initiated his goal, so did Ronaldo, a neat backheel freeing Toni Kroos, who found Karim Benzema at the back post. Kroos then crossed the ball to the other side of the box, finding Karim Benzema for a header. He led Madrid's push forward and was only stopped when Marc-Andre ter Stegen closed out to block his shot.

And Goal understands that after further tests the club are happy with how their prized asset is shaping up, with Ronaldo himself having spent Monday morning starting his recovery at the club's training ground. Marcelo fell down and the referee didn't hesitate in flashing the red card. The defender was booked for a hitting Marcelo in the face.

Messi's anger towards the official was reported to be during the halftime break before he came out to put Barcelona ahead in the 52nd minute. And in the build-up to the Catalans' second goal, Luis Suarez seemed to trip Raphael Varane.

Gareth Bale has had a up-and-down career in Madrid since moving from Spurs four years ago, mainly due to injuries rather than form. Bale received a pass from Marco Asensio on that possession.

Police reportedly plan to extradite French from Colorado to Utah. "I can't even guess what the mother would be going through right now", Shearer added.

Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said that he wasn't anxious about Ronaldo being able to play in the Champions League final against Liverpool on May 26. Coach Zinedine Zidane said the injury was "a small thing" and Ronaldo will be fit for the Champions League final. "We knew what we were playing for. But a draw also isn't a bad result for us given how the game went". "This is the way to prepare for the final in Kiev".

Villarreal travel to Barcelona after three straight wins and a victory in the Camp Nou would assure their place in next season's Europa League and lift them above Betis into fifth place, which offers direct qualification for the group stage in the Europa League.

Meanwhile, Casillas, who recently celebrated winning the Primeira Liga title in his third season with Porto, has not given up hope of one day returning to play for Spain.
