Cristiano Ronaldo has been the key behind Real Madrid’s successful campaign in the UEFA Champions League this season and will be needed most on the final day of the competition, but there is a possibility that the winger could miss out on the match after limping out of the morning session training at the club. Mirror has reported that Cristiano has failed to take part in the last three training sessions with his teammates and thus there remains a possibility of missing the final match. Since limping off the field in April against Villarreal, the Portuguese forward has been fighting with his injury and trying to recover from it. As the technical staff did not want to risk his injury by playing him, Ronaldo missed Saturday’s training session. There is a big match in the coming days and every Real Madrid fan wants the Portuguese to get fit as soon as possible.
Coming back to the incident, how did Ronaldo get injured? He was doing his exercises in training and was pushed into the back of Kiko Casilla, the Real Madrid goalkeeper by Dani Carvajal. Right after the collision, Ronaldo tried to stretch his left thigh and then limped off the training session after consultation with the club’s backroom staff.

If Ronaldo gets fit before the final of UEFA Champions League against Atletico de Madrid, he will be playing his third UCL final. And with a possibility of breaking his own record of netting 17 goals in a single UEFA Champions League season. The Portuguese has already scored 16 times in the competition and will look for more if he plays in the final at Milan.
A Champions League in 2008 with Manchester United and then one with Real Madrid in 2014, in both of the finals Ronaldo has scored, no doubt why his injury will be the biggest nightmare of the fans. If Ronaldo gets the green light on Sunday and scores, he will be the first player ever to score in three back to back UCL finals.
