MADRID — Cristiano Ronaldo returned to training with Real Madrid on Friday as he tries to recover from injury in time for the Champions League semifinal against Bayern Munich.

A leg muscle injury and a sore left knee have kept Ronaldo sidelined for Madrid's last four games, including its 2-1 win over Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final on Wednesday.

Madrid says defender Marcelo also returned to training as he recovers from injury.
