Madrid, May 2 (IANS) Real Madrid’s Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo completed his group’s training session on Monday in preparation for the second leg of the Champions League football semi-finals against Manchester City at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.
Man City held Madrid to a 0-0 draw at their home on last week in the first leg match. They will play the second leg at Madrid on Wednesday, reports Efe.
