Casillas Could Start In The Champions League, Bernabéu Bites 09.05.2013

Denis Doyle

Casillas could be Ancelotti's choice for the Champions League, Mario Gómez said no to Real Madrid plus Illarramendi and Casemiro will have a special training session today.

  • Marca reports that Iker Casillas will be Ancelotti's choice for this Champions League edition. It'd be quite ridiculous to give the most important competition to a goalkeeper that isn't get involved in La Liga, and that's why Marca's piece should be taken with a bit of salt.
  • Mario Gómez was in talks with Real Madrid this summer. That's what he said in an interview with Kicker. He wanted to get out of the bench after a difficult year with Bayern, and that's why he chose Fiorentina, a team in which he will be the starter.
  • Asier Illarramendi, Diego López and Casemiro are Ancelotti's only available players this week. The Italian coach arranged a friendly game against Castilla players to these three guys could make the best out of this week.
  • Finally, Varane, Illarramendi and Gareth Bale should be available to make their season debut at Villarreal (Saturday 14th, 22:00 CET).
