Ronaldo hit by thigh injury

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 semifinals 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.
 
The two-legged Champions League semifinals are on April 22/23 and April 29/30.
