And as the rest of the Real Madrid squad trained on ball skills today "Cristiano Ronaldo and Fabio Coentrao trained inside the facilities' the Real website reported.

Ronaldo suffered a knock to his right leg, according to press reports, adding he was expected to shake off the injury in time to play Wednesday.

On a happier note for the 10 times European champions Welsh forward Gareth Bale took full part in training Monday, looking fresh, sharp and upbeat after three months out with a heel injury.

Bale will take no part in Wednesday's game but could well be back in the starting line up for the February 22 return leg in Naples.
