Ronaldo to return against Espanyol
Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti confirmed Cristiano Ronaldo will return to action when Espanyol visit the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday, a week ahead of Real's Champions League final against Atletico Madrid.
Ronaldo missed his side's 2-0 defeat to Celta Vigo last weekend, which mathematically ended their La Liga title hopes, due to a thigh muscle injury.
"Cristiano is fine, he is available and will play tomorrow. He doesn't have any problems," Ancelotti said at his pre-match press conference on Friday.
Gareth Bale has also been included in Ancelotti's 21-man squad and could get his first outing in two weeks to ensure he is fully match-fit to face Atletico in Lisbon next weekend.
