Cristiano Ronaldo was the big absence in Real Madrid squad in the first leg of the semifinals of the Champions League against Manchester City. The Portuguese finished Monday training with discomfort in the femoral biceps and medical services preferred not to risk with the player, who had already missed match against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday by an overload.

From the White club, nothing has been said about the physical condition of Cristiano, and some media suggest that he might suffer from a broken fiber, so he might not be ready to play the second leg next week at Bernabéu. Thus, he might also miss this weekend's clash vs Real Sociedad at Anoeta, where Barça lost some weeks ago.

In addition, Zinedine Zidane may have more problems in offensive positions. Benzema could not finish the match and he has had some discomfot for some weeks. His substitute, Jesé, also finished the game against City with trouble in his tibia.
