Cristiano Ronaldo is preparing to return to action tonight in Real Madrid’s Champions League semi-final second leg with Manchester City at the Bernabeu.
And he certainly looked sharp in Madrid training this afternoon, running at full speed and scoring this delightful chip which might have Joe Hart scared.
Ronaldo made the goalkeeper in question look silly with this exquisite finish. Hart will be hopeful of avoiding similar embarrassment when his time comes.
The three-time Ballon d’Or winner missed last week’s first leg at the Etihad with a hamstring injury. In his absence, the sides played out a boring 0-0 draw.
This evening will be far from boring if Ronaldo has anything to do with it. And, judging by this silky training-ground goal, the Portuguese is in the mood.
