Cristiano Ronaldo injured after scoring landmark Clásico goal

Madrid, third, have little at stake in Spain's top flight, with their season hanging on the clash with Liverpool in Kiev, where they could win the Champions League for the third year running and a record-extending 13th time.

Real Madrid have made signing Brazil global Neymar as a priority and their officials have already met the forward twice in his homeland as he was recovering from the injury he suffered in March.

Emre Can is losing his bid to be fit for Liverpool's Champions League final against Real Madrid.

And Zidane insists he can not afford to worry about further injuries in the coming league matches, preferring to pick his best available XI. You have to be positive.

Asked if Ronaldo will play before the final - Real also have games against Sevilla, Celta Vigo and Villarreal - Zidane said: 'It's incredible that he's already walking after 48 hours. That's football. We can't control it. It would be flawless if he was able to play against Villarreal.

"It is a sprain, but there is no particular damage on the fibula, it is a small sprain and his ankle is stable", Zidane said.

The German midfielder suffered a back injury in the first half of Liverpool's 5-0 win over Watford in March and has not featured since, missing ten games for Liverpool - six in the Premier League and four in the Champions League.

They are now six points adrift of the top six and are likely to have to win all three of their remaining fixtures if they are to muscle themselves into the pack chasing the pace-setters. Neither side could get a victor, meaning that Barcelona are only three games away from going the entire La Liga season unbeaten. "I am just concerned with finishing the season well".

"I'm eager to help the team because there are three matches left, three really important finals for the club".
