MADRID (AP) -- Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has not ruled Cristiano Ronaldo out of the Copa del Rey final just yet, despite injury concerns.

Ronaldo has a new leg muscle injury on top of an already sore left knee. But Ancelotti is not giving up on the Portugal forward's availability for Wednesday's final against Barcelona.

Ancelotti says ''if he's not 100 percent, he won't play.''

Ancelotti says Ronaldo, who has scored 45 goals in all competitions, will miss Saturday's Spanish league match against Almeria.
