Jose Mourinho says that Diego Lopez's form will make it tough for Iker Casillas to return as Real Madrid's number one goalkeeper.

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has revealed that club captain Iker Casillas could struggle to replace Diego Lopez in goal when he recovers from his injury.

Casillas suffered a fracture in his hand in January that prompted the Spanish club to sign Lopez from Sevilla.

"We must be honest," ESPN quotes Mourinho as saying. "The way Diego is playing, it will be very hard to get him out of the net.

"I cannot say for certain that he will be there till the end of the season, but he is playing very well. For now, it will be difficult for Casillas to be on the bench against Galatasaray, but he will surely be there for Levante."

Madrid will host Galatasaray in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie on Wednesday.
