Real wait on Ron, Benzema out

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho will wait until after Monday's training session to see if Cristiano Ronaldo is fit to face Tottenham on Tuesday.

Ronaldo had been a major doubt for the Champions League quarter-final first leg after suffering a hamstring injury against Atletico Madrid a fortnight ago but Mourinho hinted after Saturday's home defeat to Sporting Gijon that he could risk the Portugal international against Spurs.

Speaking at Monday's pre-match press conference, Mourinho said of Ronaldo's possible participation: "I don't know. We will have to wait a little.

Mourinho did reveal that in-form striker Karim Benzema would not be involved though, while Angel Di Maria and Marcelo were also fitness question marks.
