Zinedine Zidane: 'Cristiano Ronaldo will be fit for Champions League final'

Barcelona vs. Real Madrid- La Liga

Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to be fit for Real Madrid's final La Liga game at Villarreal later this month, according to multiple reports in Spain on Monday, easing fears that a right ankle injury picked up Sunday's Clasico could rule him out of the Champions League final. "He was a little anxious because it was a bit swollen, but he said that it's nothing serious".

Marco Asensio came off the bench to replace Ronaldo, with the game ending 2-2. We will look tomorrow and see what damage has been done, he is a little bit anxious (about Kiev) but says it's something minor.

Zidane's decision to bring Marco Asensio for the five-time Ballon d'Or victor raised eyebrows and concern over his fitness with the upcoming UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool and the 2018 FIFA World Cup. In this picture, Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid reacts during the La Liga match between Barcelona and Real Madrid at Camp Nou in Barcelona, Spain, May 6, 2018. He said it wasn't much, but we'll see tomorrow, we'll do some tests to see the extend of the damage done to his ankle. Gareth Bale levelled the game late on to secure a point for Real.

The club did say, however, that Dani Carvajal - recovering after injuring a hamstring in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal at Bayern Munich on April 25 - "worked alone out on the pitch both with and without the ball". They played well and so did we. "We will have him ready (to play)".

"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. Football is always more important than the controversy that you want to create.
