Casilla: Real will bounce back immediately

Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla is confident the team will recover quickly from their recent consecutive defeats.

Los Blancos seemed unstoppable only a week ago as they broke arch-rivals Barcelona's unbeaten record, completing 40 games without losing.

However, Sevilla halted their impressive streak with a 2-1 win on Sunday, before Celta Vigo brought Zinedine Zidane's side back down to earth once again by handing them another 2-1 loss on Wednesday.

Casilla believes Real's critics have been harsh in the wake of the two disappointing setbacks, and has no doubt they will get back onto the winning trail against Malaga on Saturday.

"Just one week ago we were considered fantastic when we drew at Sevilla in the Copa, but now we are the worst in the world," he told Marca. "We were not the best then and we are not the worst now.

"We have lost two games and we haven't had a good week. The important thing is that we are Real Madrid and we cannot allow this to bring us down. We are very united and a strong group. I'm certain we will bounce back immediately."
