Ronaldo injury boosts Tottenham Champions League quest

Tottenham Hotspur have been given a massive boost ahead of their upcoming Champions League quarter-final with Real Madrid with the news that Cristiano Ronaldo looks like missing the encounter with a hamstring injury.
The Portugal international, who arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu from Manchester United in the summer of 2009 for a world-record transfer fee of £80 million, has only just returned to first-team action following a similar injury.
However, he was forced to be substituted after 73 minutes of Saturday’s Madrid derby complaining of pain and soreness in his left thigh, which the club’s doctors later diagnosed as a hamstring tear.
A statement released by Madrid on Sunday revealed that the 26 year old is likely to be out of action for "between two to three weeks, depending on his progress".
And, with the two clubs due to clash in the first leg of their last-eight showdown on April 5th in the Spanish capital, before the second leg at White Hart Lane on April 13th, it looks more than likely that Ronaldo will be missing from the contest.
