The Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off during the Spanish Super Cup clash with FC Barcelona before the start of season and with that give a five match van for shoving the referee.

Real Madrid drew two of their first three League games with Valencia and Levante in his absent despite winning the La Liga opening game.

Real Madrid will now be hoping to get back to winning ways in the first Champions League group stage Clash with APOEL on Wednesday, as they begin their second Champions League defense.

The Los Blanco Boss rejected the dependence on the Portuguese but admitted he had some relieve with him in his side.

"You know who Cristiano is," Zidane told reporters at his pre-match media conference. "We cannot talk about a dependency, but I always want him to be with us.

"What interests me is that everyone can play. Cristiano brings not only goals, but is a leader as well and he always wants to win. He transmits that [to his team-mates]. We are all happy that he is with us.

"He's very focused on what he has to do. In addition, he is very happy to play again because it is what he likes, what makes him happy.

"And we are happy too, because he is mentally very well, physically very fine. I am very happy to see him on the pitch again.

"He's going to play tomorrow, but we're not going to have him on Sunday. I hope Sunday is the last game of the season that he is not here."
