Real Madrid have been handed a scare tonight in the midst of their battle with Valladolid – Cristiano Ronaldo has hobbled off injured after just nine minutes.
The Portuguese attacker has been their talisman this season but has been forced off due to what appears to be a recurrence of his troublesome hamstring injury.
Ronaldo scored his 50th club goal of the season at the weekend with a vital injury time equaliser against Valencia at the Bernabeu.
Real Madrid are currently playing Real Valladolid and looking to close the gap on title rivals Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. Real Madrid will also be keeping one eye on the Champions League final on the 24th of this month, hoping to keep their star man fit.
