Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti believes star Cristiano Ronaldo‘s hamstring injury is not serious.
Ronaldo came off at half-time of Real’s 1-1 draw at home to Atletico Madrid in the Supercopa de Espana first leg after being largely anonymous on Tuesday.
While further tests are required, Ancelotti said the 29-year-old Portuguese attacker should be OK.
”He felt something and was uncomfortable. We’ll evaluate it tomorrow,” Ancelotti said. ”Apparently, it was not serious.”
James Rodriguez, who replaced Ronaldo, put the hosts in control of the tie with his 81st-minute goal.
But Raul Garcia levelled for Atletico, who are well-placed heading into Friday’s second leg at the Vicente Calderon.
Ancelotti believes a similar performance should be enough for Real to win the trophy.
”Atletico do have an advantage for the second leg since now we have to score at the Vicente Calderon,” the Italian said.
