Real Madrid will be without goalkeeper Iker Casillas for the Primera Division clash against Getafe because of a broken thumb.

The Santiago Bernabeu club have signed Sevilla's Diego Lopez as replacement, but Antonio Adan is expected to deputise on Sunday.

Sergio Ramos and Kaka return from bans but defender Pepe remains sidelined with an ankle injury.

Getafe have completed the loan signing of left-back Sergio Escudero from Schalke in time for him to feature at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Mane, Miguel Torres, Xavi Torres, Angel Lafita and Pedro Leon are all ruled out, while defender David Abraham has been sold to Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim.

Winger Diego Castro returns from suspension but boss Luis Garcia will watch the game from the stands as he serves the second of his two-game touchline ban.
