Nov. 27, 2013. That’s the last time someone scored on Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas. It was Galatasaray’s Umut Bulut in the Champions League.
Since then, Casillas and the Real Madrid defense have been impenetrable. On Tuesday, as Los Blancos booked their spot in the Copa del Rey semifinals, Casillas broke the club record of 682 minutes without conceding a goal. He passed Paco Buyo’s mark of 658 minutes, set in the 1994-95 season.
But what’s even more impressive is that in those 11 hours and 22 minutes, Casillas has only had to make 13 saves. For those doing the math, that’s less than two saves every 90 minutes.
He should treat his defense to a nice night on the town.
