Ronaldo ankle injury 'a small thing' - Zidane

FBL-ESP-LIGA-DEPORTIVO-BARCELONA Ronaldo ankle injury 'a small thing' - Zidane

Zinedine Zidane is optimistic Cristiano Ronaldo will be fit for the Champions League final against Liverpool despite Real Madrid's star player going off injured against Barcelona.

"It's just the movement, tomorrow we'll see", Zidane told Movistar.

Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde has given his backing to use Video Assistant Referees (VAR) in the La Liga next season.

"The sending-off of Sergi Roberto hurt us and I know him - I doubt he was going to hurt [Marcelo]". Iniesta went off to a standing ovation in the second half.

Barca made light of their one-man disadvantage as they restored their lead in the 54th minute, Messi finishing off a swift counter-attack with a curling shot past Navas. Suarez swept the ball out to the right where Sergi drove forward, ignored Messi's run to the near post, and returned the cross deep to Suarez who finished into the bottom corner with a wonderful volley.

Ronaldo appeared to sustain a knock to his ankle as he bundled home a 14th-minute equaliser for Real at the Camp Nou. Suarez felt he had been elbowed by Sergio Ramos, prompting the first round of scuffles, before Messi was booked for flying into the defender on the touchline.

But Bale was lucky still to be on the pitch after he stabbed his studs into the back of Samuel Umtiti's calf, moments before Sergi was sent off.

Gareth Bale then curled home a first-time effort with 18 minutes remaining to leave Real three points behind city rivals Atletico in the race for second, albeit with a game in hand. It was the Welshman's 15th goal in 24 matches this year.

Suarez also had a goal ruled out for offside, while Madrid were denied a late penalty when Marcelo was tripped in the area by Jordi Alba.
