Cristiano Ronaldo confirmed that he will play this Saturday against Osasuna. Real Madrid will host the game at the Bernabeu and the Portuguese star will make his return from the knee injury that kept him out of the UEFA Euro Final and the whole preseason.
Ronaldo appeared at an event in Madrid and the Portuguese said "yes" when a reporter inquired him about whether he will be ready this very same Saturday.

Cristiano Ronaldo will be expected to start the match with Gareth Bale upfront. Karim Benzema might still need some more time to play 90 minutes and therefore he could be out of the list, meaning that Morata would start.
Ronaldo's return will surely give Madrid more firepower upfront, something they lacked when Celta visited the Bernabeu two weeks ago and forced Los Blancos to earn a very close 2-1 win.
The Portuguese attacker has been working hard to recover from his injury and will be looking forward to prove that he still has fuel on the tank.
