The back-up custodian claims that he is not worried about the danger posed by the Portuguese forward ahead of the last-16 decider against Jose Mourinho's side

CSKA Moscow's reserve goalkeeper Sergey Chepchugov harbours no concerns over the potential impact of Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of his team's Champions League second-leg clash with Real Madrid in the round of 16.

The Russians salvaged a 1-1 draw at home to take to the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday and Chepchugov believes his side are prepared for the clash in the Spanish capital.

"I am in a good mood, we are working hard," he told Sport-Express.

CSKA will face a star-studded Madrid side but the goalkeeper suggested there is no reason to single out Ronaldo for any special attention.

Asked if the Portuguese will provide a big threat, Chepchugov replied: "I wouldn't say so. After all, it was he who left the pitch [in the first leg] in disappointment, not me."

Ronaldo has scored 40 goals in 38 appearances in all competitions so far this season, including one past Chepchugov in the first leg.
