Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo hit by calf strain

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has been hit by a calf strain.

However, he is expected to make their weekend clash with Levante.

The problem has forced Ronaldo to train away from the squad for Wednesday and Thursday's sessions, remaining inside the Valdebebas gym on a tailored workout regimen.

If, as expected, he is fit to travel to Valencia on Saturday then the 32-year-old can look to continue his long run of consecutive starts in LaLiga, with Week 4's win over Real Sociedad the last time he didn't start as he served a ban.

Furthermore, Ronaldo's brace versus both Deportivo La Coruna and Valencia means he comes into the game on a run of four goals in two games.
