Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas suffered a bruised rib on Tuesday and is not expected to miss any first-team action.
The 32-year-old’s return to the side after a 238-day absence did not end as he would have hoped after a collision with team-mate Sergio Ramos saw him substituted in the 14th minute of their 6-1 UEFA Champions League victory over Galatasaray.
However, the Liga club confirmed on Wednesday that Casillas had only sustained bruising, meaning that he will be fully fit again soon.
Manager Carlo Ancelotti had said after the game that he hoped Casillas would be back in “three or four days”.
Casillas is the third highest appearance maker in Real’s history but his starts have been limited since former boss Jose Mourinho’s decision to drop him last December.
He then broke his wrist and his absence heralded the arrival of Diego Lopez, who has started all four league games this term.
