Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello is confident his side can cope without injured David Beckham in tonight's crucial Champions League match with Bayern Munich.

Beckham will sit out the last-16 second leg in Munich, where Madrid defend a 3-2 advantage from the first meeting, after suffering a knee injury during Sunday's league game with Getafe.   The former England captain, who is set to be absent for around four weeks, has been playing well for Madrid since returning to the team and his loss is a blow to the Spanish giants.

Capello said: 'David Beckham is playing very well, like he knows how to.  But he is injured, so we just have to move on.'  The Italian coach also shrugged off suggestions in the media that Madrid will be a less potent force without Beckham present.   'I am used to many people thinking they know more than we do.  But I am certain that my team will be 100% ready to play.'
