Ronaldo set to miss out on La Liga record for Real Madrid

An MRI scan has confirmed that the 31-year-old is suffering from muscle fatigue.

CRISTIANO RONALDO IS set to miss out on another record by sitting out of Real Madrid’s La Liga clash with Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.

The Portugal international limped out of Madrid’s 3-0 victory over Villarreal on Wednesday and a subsequent MRI scan has confirmed that the 31-year-old is suffering from muscle fatigue.

Ronaldo has not missed a game in La Liga this term and the forward, who has 31 goals in 34 appearances so far, was on course to be only the second outfield player to have played every minute of an entire season.

Other than goalkeepers, Fabricio Coloccini is currently the only outfield player to achieve this after he played in all of Deportivo La Coruna’s 38 games in the 2007-08 campaign.

Madrid travel to Vallecano a point behind La Liga leaders Barcelona, who host Sporting Gijon on Saturday evening.
