Las Palmas v Real Madrid preview: Keylor Navas available for visitors
Last Updated: 24/09/16 9:56pm
Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas could make his first start of the season against Las Palmas on Saturday, live on Sky Sports 5 HD from 7.30pm.
Navas, whose last game was the Champions League final win over Atletico Madrid on May 28, required surgery to resolve chronic tendinitis in his left foot.
In his absence, Kiko Casilla has started every match for early La Liga pace-setters Real.
"Keylor is back with us and in the squad," Zidane told reporters on Friday. "He is a key player for us.
"Kiko has done very well and I will talk to the two of them to see what we can organise (playing time). For me you can rotate the goalkeepers in the exact same way as with outfield players."
Navas missed the Copa America with Costa Rica and Real's opening five La Liga games as well as the 2-1 triumph over Sporting Lisbon in their Champions League group opener.
Real, unbeaten and two points clear of Sevilla at the top of La Liga, missed out on a league record 17th successive win when they drew 1-1 with Villarreal on Wednesday.
Left-back Marcelo and midfielder Casemiro have joined defender Pepe on the sidelines due to injuries.
Marcelo has a calf muscle strain while Casemiro has fractured a bone in his leg.
"Losing two starters is a concern but we can't do anything about it," Zidane said. "We don't have a player that plays like Casemiro. It will be different but it's not a problem.
"We have a big squad and we will make changes."
Las Palmas have enjoyed a positive start to the season, winning three of their five league matches to sit fifth in the table.
They will be looking to bounce back from a 4-1 defeat at Real Sociedad on Wednesday.
The hosts will be without Kevin-Prince Boateng after he was sent off against Sociedad, so Jonathan Viera could return to the starting XI.
"I hope that defeat on Wednesday doesn't affect us," coach Quique Setien told a press conference.
"The first goal hurt us very much. We lacked a bit of aggression and discipline and that weakened us a lot in defence.
"The team is going to be committed for every ball and in each move (against Real Madrid), that is what we can promise.
"I hope the crowd will support us and be aware of the difficulty these opponents pose us."
