Cristiano Ronaldo will miss Real Madrid's clash with Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup due to the knee injury he sustained during the European Championship final on Sunday, according to Marca.

Ronaldo was clattered into by West Ham United playmaker Dimitri Payet in the eighth minute, and despite his best attempts to carry on through the pain, the Ballon D'Or winner eventually succumbed and was replaced by Ricardo Quaresma.

And now it has been revealed that Ronaldo will play no part in Real Madrid's Super Cup clash with fellow La Liga outfit Sevilla.

His knee injury is expected to keep him out for at least three to four weeks, and with the fixture set to be played on 9th August in Trondheim, Norway, Ronaldo won't make it back in time to feature.

Real Madrid could also now travel to the United States for their pre-season tour without their talisman, with Ronaldo expected to focus on his recovery at their Valdebebas training ground.

However, Real Madrid had already planned to allow him to rest after his European Championship exertions.

Ronaldo's Portugal side created history in France on Sunday, winning their first major tournament with an impressive 1-0 win over France, despite losing their captain early on.
