Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti is sticking with Diego Lopez for today's clash with Athletic Bilbao. It will be the third consecutive game Iker Casillas has started on the bench.

"The goalkeeper tomorrow will be Diego Lopez because he's playing well right now. He's in top form and relaxed," said Ancelotti.

"Casillas is also working well, he's very professional. He deserves my respect and I already spoke to him before the first match to explain the situation. I don't think he's going to leave; we need two good goalkeepers, just like the ones we have, this season. I'm sure that he'll have opportunities to play this season and I'll soon make a decision about when he'll have a chance to play."
