Cristiano Ronaldo takes part in light training away from his Real Madrid teammates and will reportedly be available for selection against Barcelona.

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo is on course to be fit for Saturday's El Clasico showdown with Barcelona, according to a report.

The Portugal international was forced to sit out training at the start of the week after injuring his calf during the 1-0 win over Gremio last weekend.

Ronaldo, who scored the winner in that Club World Cup final clash, was seen as a major fitness doubt for what is essentially a must-win match against league leaders Barcelona.

After taking part in a light session away from his teammates on Thursday afternoon, however, Sky Sports News suggests that the 32-year-old will be available for selection.

Fit-again forward Ousmane Dembele took part in Barcelona training earlier today, meanwhile, but boss Ernesto Valverde will not risk him this side of the winter break following a long-term layoff.
