Zidane unconcerned by Cristiano Ronaldo's injury

  • Barcelona continued their unbeaten run with a win against Deportivo last Sunday

Cristiano Ronaldo will play in the 2017/18 Champions League final in Kiev.

"We'll see tomorrow after the tests, what we have to do is see the damage done to the ankle".

Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde believes the introduction of Video Assistant Referees next season will be good for La Liga, but admits it will take time to adjust.

"As we are a family, and they didn't want to give us a guard of honour, I've asked our staff to make one", Gerard Pique explained to the crowd, as quoted by Marca. Iniesta went off to a standing ovation in the second half. Suarez swept the ball out to the right where Sergi drove forward, ignored Messi's run to the near post, and returned the cross deep to Suarez who finished into the bottom corner with a wonderful volley.

The lead, however, lasted four minutes.


Ronaldo appeared to sustain a knock to his ankle as he bundled home a 14th-minute equaliser for Real at the Camp Nou. Ronaldo took treatment but was able temporarily to continue and could twice have given Real the lead.

Both sides had their chances to go in front with Jordi Alba and Ronaldo both heading over the bar, then Luka Modric threaded a brilliant through ball to Ronaldo who was only denied by a superb save from Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

But Bale was lucky still to be on the pitch after he stabbed his studs into the back of Samuel Umtiti's calf, moments before Sergi was sent off.

The home fans were raging as the half-time whistle blew but, with Marco Asensio on for Ronaldo, they were celebrating eight minutes after the restart. And in the build-up to the Catalans' second goal, Luis Suarez seemed to trip Raphael Varane. Even Zidane was smiling on the touchline.
