The Spanish goalkeeper started an official game for Real Madrid after nine months, but he had to leave the match after colliding with Sergio Ramos just 13 minutes after kick-off.

Iker Casillas saved a good long-range shot in the third minute, but unfortunately for him, he left the game with a knock on his ribs after colliding with Sergio Ramos.

It seems that the Spanish goalkeeper doesn't have a fracture though, so he could be ready to play Real's next Champions League match against Copenhaguen. Real Madrid fans should not be afraid, because Diego López made his presence felt with a great save on a header by Felipe Melo.

Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that Iker Casillas would be Real Madrid's goalkeeper for the European competition if everything goes according to plan, even after López's great form.
