Stitched up Ronaldo returns to Real Madrid training with black eye

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo isn't expected to see action in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday night against Leganes.

Marca says at the final training session before their match against Leganes, Ronaldo reappeared with a black eye and swelling.

The injury came about as he scored his second goal against Deportivo la Coruna, and it required three stitches to stem the flow of blood.

As a result, the Portuguese won't play against Leganes, although it shouldn't prevent him from playing against Valencia at the Estadio Mestalla.

There was a plan to rest him already in place, but the inconvenience of the wound has ensured that Zinedine Zidane won't take any risks.
