Cristiano Ronaldo will be out for at least two weeks after injuring his leg Thursday.

The forward could miss Real Madrid's Champions League last-16 return-leg match against Lyon.

The Portuguese native injured a muscle in his left leg after scoring his third goal in Thursday's 7-0 win over Malaga.

Madrid says medical tests Friday ruled Ronaldo out for 10 to 15 days.

Madrid holds the away-goal advantage ahead of the March 16 second leg after drawing 1-1 at Lyon. Madrid hasn't reached the quarterfinals of Europe's top-tier competition since the 2004-05 season.

Ronaldo will miss Spanish league matches against Racing Santander and Hercules as a result of the setback.

Madrid trails Spanish leader Barcelona by seven points.
