MADRID (AP) Cristiano Ronaldo won't play in Real Madrid's first away game of the Spanish league season after Portugal ruled him unfit for its opening 2016 European Championship qualifier.

Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has left the Ballon d'Or winner out of his squad for Sunday's game at Real Sociedad.

Ancelotti says "we preferred to use this week and the next two to let him recover completely."
