Real will go for its third consecutive UCL crown (fourth in five years) on May 26 in Kiev, Ukraine as Zinedine Zidane and Co. ready themselves for the Premier League side.

Ronaldo took to social media early Saturday morning, captioning his picture on Twitter with “Back on track” as the 33-year-old gets ready for the remainder of the La Liga campaign, as well as the UCL finale.

The Portugal international suffered the ankle injury during Madrid’s Clasico fixture against Barcelona last weekend, where Ronaldo was forced out of the match at halftime.

It’s expected that Ronaldo will be unavailable for Saturday’s La Liga match against Celta Vigo, and could possibly be held out next weekend for Real’s league finale against Villareal as well.

This season, Ronaldo has been nothing short of brilliant once again, scoring 43 goals in all competitions, including 15 in the UCL — which leads all scorers in the competition.
