The Ballon d’Or winner came off after just eight minutes in Real Madrid’s 1-1 draw with the Pucela on Wednesday night.

It means that the capital club are now four points behind leaders Atletico Madrid with just two games remaining.

But the Portugal international’s injury is not as serious as was first though, with AS claiming that the record-breaking goalscorer only has muscle fatigue.

Ronaldo has been struggling with knee and hamstring complaints for the past month, but this recent upset is unlikely to see him miss any more matches.
