Keylor set to start for Madrid

Keylor Navas is set to replace Iker Casillas in the Real Madrid goal for the visit of Almeria on Wednesday.

According to Cadena SER, boss Carlo Ancelotti will likely rest Casillas against the Andalusians as his players enter a crucial part of the season, with a Champions League semi-final against Juventus looming and five La Liga games still to be played as they chase leaders Barcelona.

Costa Rica international Navas has only featured in a total of nine matches since his €10m signing from Levante last summer, keeping a clean sheet in four of them, and his last start was in a 3-0 victory over Eibar at the Santiago Bernabeu on March 11.
