Ronaldo will have a scan on his ankle on onday to discover the extent of the injury

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner's injury was concerning for the Spanish capital club as they face Liverpool in the final of the Champions League on May 26.

Mourinho gave special mention to Brazil and Spain, who appear to be quite settled ahead of next month's World Cup.

"He got injured but is doing well, walking as normal", Zidane said. Benzema then somehow got it in the general direction of the goal, where Ronaldo was there waiting to head it in.

Cristiano Ronaldo has matched Alfredo Di Stéfano as Real Madrid player with more goals (18) in classics.

Liverpool can complete an incredible journey to become European champions by beating Madrid in Kiev, but the Reds will know that Ronaldo is the major threat in the Spanish side's ranks.

So will Ronaldo - and his ankle - be up for the potentially career-defining match?

The Portuguese star was forced off at half-time of the game at the Nou Camp, having scored Real's first equaliser as they eventually earned a 2-2 draw thanks to Gareth Bale's strike.

He will certainly miss the La Liga clashed with Sevilla and Celta Vigo, but the Frenchman hopes that his team's talisman will be able to return in their final league outing of the season against Villarreal.

"In the end it is a draw, and in the end it looks like Barca will end the season unbeaten", Zidane said, as quoted by ESPN.

"It's an English team who know how to fight".

Both will be confident of moving beyond the group stages, but neither has an entirely straightforward opening trio of games.

Neymar only swapped LaLiga giants Barcelona for PSG in a record-breaking $222million move in August however, the Brazilian superstar is still connected with a sensational switch to Champions League holders Madrid. All we need now is for Kenny Dalglish to come out and say that he believes Liverpool's will batter Madrid 6-0.
