Cristiano Ronaldo has been ruled out by manager Zinedine Zidane ahead of this weekend’s clash against the seventh-place side with a muscle issue.

The Portuguese attacker played hero for Los Blancos in their come-from-behind 3-3 draw against La Palmas in the midweek, where Ronaldo found the back of the net twice in the late portion of the match to secure a point.

While the severity of Ronaldo’s injury is unknown, Zidane will also have to make due without Bale, who is serving a two-match suspension.

The Madridistas currently sit second in La Liga, just one point behind league leaders Barcelona.
