Real Madrid’s past and possible future came face-to-face last night in the Portuguese O Clássico. Iker Casillas was the hero of the hour as Porto came from behind to beat bitter rivals Benfica 2-1. Renato lived up to the hype throughout the game and provided the assist for Mitroglou’s opener, but it was the Spanish international who stole all the headlines as he kept the Eagles at bay with fine save after fine save.
The front page of Portuguese sports daily Record hailed the former Bernabéu shot-stopper's performance: "Colossal: Monumental performance from Casillas gets Porto back in the title chase".
