Cristiano Ronaldo Masks To Be Worn By Real Madrid Fans

Cristiano Ronaldo may be out injured for Real Madrid's Champions League clash with Galatasaray, but Madridistas have made sure their visitors will be haunted by the best player in the world.

Around 45,000 masks bearing the Portuguese forward's face will be handed out at the Santiago Bernabéu, as Madrid fans throw their backing behind Ronaldo's quest to win his second Ballon d'Or.

Real's La Clasica and Barajas supporters clubs have organised the tribute, which could also feature a huge banner paying homage to Ronaldo.

Ronaldo's sole Ballon d'Or win came in 2008, when he was instrumental in Manchester United's Premier League and Champions League double.
