Ronaldo was forced off in 46 minutes but French manager Zidane has played down all concerns insisting that it’s just a knock.
“It doesn’t feel good right now, but I think it’s going to be small [problem], it’s just a knock,” Zidane told reporters.
“Don’t worry about the final, he will be there. I cannot tell you how long [he will be out for], but he said that he thinks it isn’t much. We will see tomorrow.”
“We will see what we have to do, and the damage that has been done. It was a little swollen, but as I say, it wasn’t much.”
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner could now miss out on the games against Sevilla, Celta Vigo and Villarreal before taking on Liverpool.
