Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is of the belief that Diego Lopez is capable of filling Iker Casillas' shoes for Real Madrid.

Madrid skipper Casillas is currently sidelined by a broken finger allowing former youth keeper Lopez into the starting line-up with de Gea suggesting he is certainly good enough to fill the void.

"Whenever Casillas is missing, there's something missing," De Gea said ahead of Wednesday night's Champions League meeting between the two clubs.

"He's the captain of the national team and Real Madrid. Of course his absence is important, a great loss for them, but they have a very good goalkeeper who I am sure will do very well."
