Ancelotti: Ronaldo Could Play Copa Del Rey Final

Real Madrid, coach, Carlo Ancelotti, has refused to rule Cristiano Ronaldo out of the Copa del Rey final.

According to the Italian, Ronaldo is recovering well from his knee and thigh problems which have left him side-lined for the past three games.

Ancelotti also confirmed that he won’t take any risks in rushing Ronaldo back into action with the Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich only one week away.

"He's (Ronaldo) progressing every day so don't rule him out," the Italian told El Mundo.

"But we won't take any chances. 

"If he doesn't play then the system won't change. The players are confident and comfortable.

"They have faith in the system and they're doing well."

Ronaldo has scored 45 goals in all competitions this season, but his side has coped well without him this year.

They have won all six La Liga games without the Portuguese with a goal difference of 22:2, and only lost the return leg in the Champions League quarter-final to Dortmund – after they had entered the game with a three-goal lead.

Could Real Madrid beat Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final without Cristiona Ronaldo? Have your say in the comment section below.
