Madrid – Cristiano Ronaldo trained apart from the team on Monday just two days ahead of Real Madrid’s Champions League last-16 home leg against Napoli.

The Portuguese goal machine, with a record 96 Champions League strikes to his name, suffered a heavy tackle during a 3-1 win over Osasuna at the weekend.

And, as the rest of the Real Madrid squad trained on ball skills Monday,Real website reported that “Cristiano Ronaldo and Fabio Coentrao trained inside the facilities.” Ronaldo suffered a knock to his right leg, according to press reports, adding that he was expected to shake off the injury in time to play Wednesday.

On a happier note for the 10-time European champions, Welsh forward Gareth Bale took full part in training Monday, looking fresh, sharp, and upbeat after three months out with a heel injury.

Bale will take no part in Wednesday’s game but could be back in the starting lineup for the Feb. 22 return leg in Naples.
