Iker Casillas breaks own Real Madrid clean sheet record
The Porto stopper reached the milestone of 16 games in one season without seeing a goal against him when his side went to Arouca and won by four goals.
Real Madrid and Spanish legend, Iker Casillas, is having a good time in Portugal. He has shared openly how happy he is at Porto during interviews and on social media largely due to a quieter lifestyle away from the intense limelight that he had in the Spanish capital.
San Iker breaks own clean-sheet record
His team's victory over Arouca - four goals courtesy of Danillo, Jota and two for Soares - was extra sweet as it saw the goalkeeper reach 16 games in this league campaign where he has kept a clean sheet. This is a feat that he has never acheived before in his 20 seasons as a professional, and there are still nine matches to be played.
Prior to the visit to Arouca, Casillas' best clean-sheet figures across a league season was 15 which he achieved three times, in 04/05, 06/06 and 09/10 all, of course, for Los Blancos. The team currently sitting on top of the Portuguese league are in fine form with no loss in the last 22 domestic games and with the best attacking numbers of 57 goals.
