Ronaldo to miss Madrid’s visit to Sociedad

MADRID (AP) Cristiano Ronaldo will miss Real Madrid’s visit to Real Sociedad on Saturday, with his team in third place as the Spanish league reaches its conclusion.

Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says he will rest Ronaldo, who is ”tired and little worn down,” after he left Wednesday’s 3-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund with pain in his left knee.

Madrid trails leader Atletico Madrid by three points and second-place Barcelona by two points with seven rounds to go.

The match at Anoeta stadium against sixth-place Sociedad is arguably the most difficult match left for Madrid, which plays four more games at home and two more away at Celta Vigo and Valladolid.
