It looks as if Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo may be fit to face Manchester City in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final this week.
The player was seen taking part in training on Sunday after he had to sit out of the first leg of the match last week due to a hamstring injury. His return would be particularly dangerous for Manchester City as he is the top scorer in this season’s Champions League with 16 goals in 10 appearances.
SEE YOU IN SEMIFINALS!!!!!

However, it has been reported that he will decide on the day whether he is fit enough to play in the game. He has been receiving treatment for the last few weeks since the injury occurred on April 20th.
On the other hand Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has said that David Silva will be out for the next two or three weeks due to a hamstring injury of his own.
Silva limped off in the fortieth minute of the first leg of the match last week and in addition to missing the second leg of the semi-final he will also be absent from Premier League games against Southampton and Arsenal. With a bit of luck he may be back for the final league match of the season on May 15th. Pellegrini said that the target is to have Silva back for the Champions League final which will be taking place on May 28th in Milan.
While Silva will be missing midfielder Yaya Toure is expected to be back for the second leg after he missed the first due to a thigh muscle injury and the winger Samir Nasri is also expected to be fit after missing the last two Premier League fixtures and the first-leg.
