The Portuguese star is currently serving his five match ban from the Supercopa de Espana.

It’s now two down and three more games to go for Cristiano Ronaldo. The Real Madrid talisman has been sent away from competitive football after slightly pushing Ricardo de Burgos in this season’s first El Clasico encounter at the Camp Nou. But with Los Blancos’ Trofeo Santiago Bernabeu clash scheduled for Wednesday, the number 7 man could be in Zinedine Zidane’s line up.

Despite the decision by the Spanish Federation, Cristiano has not turned away from soccer. The 32-year-old attacker has been training with his teammates at Valdebebas. That encourages a positive feel among Real Madrid fans on enjoying their idol in action during the five-game absence.

Also, coach Zinedine Zidane might rest some lads that featured in the 0-3 win against Deportivo La Coruna at the Riazor. That said, the Frenchman will hand minutes to his less used players and having Ronaldo in such a memorable game will be spectacular.

We await the 45-year-old gaffer’s decision on whether CR7 will be involved in the game or still gear up for tough showdowns. The current Ballon d’Or recently posted an image on Instagram where he appreciates an elegant view of nature. Check the lovely post below:
