Keylor Navas will be Real Madrid's goalkeeper against Atlético de Madrid. The Costa Rican has featured in some Liga BBVA and Champions League games against smaller opponents, meaning that he practically had no chance to prove his worth, but it should be a different story at the Vicente Calderón.

For the moment, it seems that Keylor Navas start in the Copa del Rey. Some fans and reporters expected Keylor to be Real's starter after he chose to sign for Real Madrid, but Carlo Ancelotti gave Casillas the spot even after a shaky start to the 2014-2015 season. Now, it seems that Real's captain has regained some good form, so the controversy around Real Madrid's goalkeeper is not as intense as it was months ago.
