Iker Casillas' Real Madrid comeback was thwarted by a rib injury as he broke down during their 6-1 Champions League win at Galatasaray.

In a blow for the club captain, Casillas' rival Diego Lopez finished the game between the posts.

"Casillas was unlucky and I hope that he will be better in three or four days. Inside very few minutes Iker made a great save and showed the good form he is in. It was just a knock, it is only pain, but he could not carry on. He is not worried about it and will make a quick recovery," said coach Carlo Ancelotti.
