Real Madrid's best player looks ready for the biggest game of the season.

Superstar striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who missed the last three matches, including the first leg of the Champions League semifinal against Manchester City, because of a hamstring injury, has returned to normal training with his teammates. All reports from the training session claim the Portuguese had no issues, and he looks to be fit for Wednesday's second leg against the Citizens.

Ronaldo suffered the injury two weeks ago in Madrid's win against Villarreal in a league match at Santiago Bernabéu. The problem didn't look serious and everyone was counting Cristiano as part of the starting eleven to face City at Etihad Stadium. But the team news last Tuesday came with a shock as Ronaldo wasn't fit even for the bench, and had to watch the 0-0 draw from the stands.

After missing out on his third consecutive game against Real Sociedad last Saturday, Ronaldo was seriously in doubt of not featuring in the return leg at Bernabéu. But after training normally for two days, there's no reason to believe the striker won't be ready for the biggest game of Madrid's season.

Huge boost for Los Blancos, bad news for City.
