Iker Casillas, who played for Real Madrid for the first time this season last night, has been injured during the Champions League first round game against the Turkish giants Galatasaray. 

Casillas collided with fellow teammate Sergio Ramos in the 12th minute of the match, however he decided to carry on. 

Ramos' elbow hit Casillas in the rib area - however the Spaniard decided to continue but didn't last long as he was forced off in the 15th minute to make way for Diego Lopez.

Carlo Ancelotti decided that Diego Lopez will keep the Madrid goalmouth in La Liga and after Casillas was given a chance to shine, he found himself with more bad luck.

Last time Iker faced an injury, that too came from fellow team-mate Alvaro Arbeloa. Casillas will be hoping this injury doesn't keep him out for too long.

However, Real went onto win the game 6-1 thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick.
