    Boost for Tottenham as injured Real star Ronaldo is doubtful for Euro clash



    By Sportsmail Reporter Last updated at 2:09 PM on 20th March 2011

    Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo could be sidelined for up to three weeks due to a hamstring injury, leaving him with a race against time to be fit for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Tottenham.
    Ronaldo recently missed two games with a hamstring problem but returned to action in Wednesday's Champions League game against Lyon.

    Race against time: Ronaldo is doubtful for the first leg against Tottenham

    He also started Saturday night's derby against Atletico Madrid, playing around 70 minutes in both matches before being replaced.

    The 80million man complained of pain in his left thigh following the derby and he underwent medical tests, where the extent of the damage was confirmed.

    According to a statement on the Madrid website, Ronaldo is now likely to be absent for 'between two to three weeks, depending on his progress'.


    Fresh blow: Ronaldo featured in Real's 2-1 win over rivals Atletico on Saturday

    Ronaldo is now set to miss Portugal's upcoming friendlies against Chile and Finland, and it remains to be seen if he will be fit for Madrid's league match against Sporting Gijon in a fortnight's time and the Champions League clash with Tottenham on April 5.

    Nine-times European champions Madrid reached the last eight of the Champions League for the first time in seven years after knocking out Lyon in midweek.

    more likely he won't play the 2nd match due to a disqualification than miss the first one

    there are 2 rules:
    1. don't trust mass-media
    2. don't trust maur
    + what do we see coming... FRIENDLIES, hello there. all key players on the planet suddenly got injured, woops...

    He'd be playing on Corluka anyway so I doubt BAE cares.

    @The Cryptkeeper

    Hopefully it'll be Kaboul playing at RB because he should be fully fit any day now.

    Well this can only be good news, even if he does make it back in time.

    I expect that he will be back unfortunately unless of course there's a setback.

    Yes, I'd agree that Kaboul would be the best guy to take care of Ronaldo.

    Although i'm in favor, I doubt Arry would play Kaboul at RB even though he may be fit.. I remember the game at Old Trafford against Man Utd last season, where Harry purposely dropped Kaboul from RB and put Benny their so he could deal with Nani's 'pace'. I think we all remember how that turned out..

    'Doubtful' does not mean 'Ronaldo will definitely be out of the 1st leg of the tie'.
    The media are now trying to make us think 'oh, it's going to be easier now because Ronaldo isn't going to be there'.
    Well, I'm not falling for it!

    It's a disease of the modern media age. There are so many avenues for news to be delivered 24 hours a day that everything gets blown up out of proportion. It's at worst a hamstring tweak, it won't take 3 weeks to heal, Real are simply using it as a way of keeping him out of worthless international freindlies. Mourinho is no mug, Harry should take a leaf out of his book.

    Even if Ronaldo missed the first leg we still have Benzema, Kaka and countless other world class players.
