CR7 withdrawn from Madrid XI after pulling out of warm-up

AS AS 17/05/2014 As.com

Cristiano Ronaldo withdrew from Real Madrid’s line-up against Espanyol on Saturday as he continues to be troubled by a hamstring problem.

The forward was not at 100% fitness and dropped out of the pre-match warm-up at the Santiago Bernabéu, failing even to make it on to the bench. He was replaced by Isco in the line-up, with Xabi Alonso taking the space vacated among the substitutes.

With Real Madrid preparing to face Atlético in the Champions League final on 24 May, both Cristiano and Los Blancos’ coaching staff preferred not to take any risks and ensure that he comes into the clash in Lisbon in peak condition.

Cristiano’s absence against Espanyol means that he cannot win the Golden Shoe outright and will share the award with Luis Suárez (both hit 31 league goals this season), unless Leo Messi (currently on 28) hits a hat-trick against Atlético.
