International

Ancelotti: Ronaldo Will Play

Cristiano Ronaldo has missed the last three games of Real Madrid due to a slight muscular injury and suspension respectively, but Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that his star striker Cristiano Ronaldo is fit again.

“Cristiano is fine, he is training with the rest of the team and he will play on Tuesday without any problem,” said the Italian.

Ronaldo is set to start Real's Champions League game against Copenhagen and the Portuguese will try to set up a new Champions League record.

The Portugal international has already scored eight goals in just four matches this season and could break the record jointly held by Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Filippo Inzaghi, Hernan Crespo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has also scored eight times for Paris Saint German this season.

The Los Blancos striker confirmed that despite a lot of World Cup talk around Portugal’s difficult group with Germany, his primary focus will be on winning titles with Real this season.

“There's still a long way to go to the World Cup and I am focused on my club. I want to win everything and then we'll see about the World Cup,” he said.

“We have to enjoy the present, right now we are playing well in the Champions League, La Liga and now the Copa del Rey.

"I hope Madrid can win something important. There is still a long way to go until the World Cup and anything could happen. My aim is to stay focused on my club and give my best."

Ronaldo’s team mate Gareth Bale is also expected to face Danish Copenhagen. The record signing recovered from flu, which kept him out of Real’s disappointing 0-0 draw in the first leg of their Spanish Cup game against Segunda B side Olimpic de Xativa.

At 15:00 today, Cristiano Ronaldo will be hoping his name is on the list of the final three FIFA Ballon d’Or contenders. Check our website and social media pages for all the updates.
