Los Blancos are trying to get their mojo back, as they are rebounding from a draw with Las Palmas in La Liga, per the Daily Mail. Cristiano Ronaldo, 31, was substituted by manager Zinedine Zidane, 44, leading some to wonder if there was a rift between the coach and the all-time top La Liga scorer. “Everything is normal,” Zinedine reassured reporters. “Cristiano wasn’t the only one angry after the game but it’s over now and we are thinking about [the Champions league match.]”
Ronaldo hasn’t been his signature self since coming back after injuring his knee during the Euro 2016 tournament. He has missed three games, and only scoring two goals in four appearances. Still, this doesn’t have Dortmund sleeping on the soccer superstar.
“We are preparing the best Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo in top form,” Thomas Tuchel, 43, coach of Dortmund, said ahead of the match, per the Bangkok Post. “Players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema or Alvaro Morata are very dangerous. It’s the Champions League, it brings out the best in players on evenings like this.”
