Real Madrid have confirmed reports that first choiceÂ goalkeeper Keylor Navas has been hit with a groin injury that will likely keep him out of the weekend clash with Getafe.
On Wednesday, Madrid put out a statement on their official website, which reads:Â "After the tests carried out this afternoon on our player, Keylor Navas, at the Sanitas La Moraleja University Hospital, he has been diagnosed with a swollen adductor muscle in his right groin. His recovery will continue to be assessed."
Reserve keeper Kiko Casilla is now in line to start for Madrid, having performed well previously when given a chance. However, due to his lack of game time, fans will be concerned given the importance of the upcoming Champions League clash with Spurs.
