Courtois, Navas locked in Real Madrid goalkeeper battle

Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui says he has still not decided who will be his No.1 this season, as Thibaut Courtois and Keylor Navas continue to battle to be first choice.

Courtois joined Madrid earlier this summer while Navas kept goal during the club's three successive Champions League triumphs and started the 2-0 win over Getafe last week.

"We are not decided on what is going to happen," Lopetegui said ahead of Real's trip to Girona on Sunday. "I won't say anything, tomorrow you will see.

"We have very good goalkeepers, very good solutions. Some have arrived slightly later but they are all good. We will make a decision and the one we pick will be good. With the Champions League, it could be a different solution but tomorrow, we know what we will do."

Madrid have started life without Cristiano Ronaldo and Lopetegui says his new side must all pull together in order to replace the goals they will miss.
