Who should play in goal for Real Madrid? Iker Casillas ended 2013 with better stats than Diego Lopez
As 2013 draws to a close, Canal+ have looked at the data to explore which goalie, Iker Casillas or Diego Lopez, should stand between the sticks for Los Blancos.
Iker Casillas has been supplanted as Real Madrid’s #1 goalkeeper for over a year now. Jose Mourinho started the trend of dropping Spain’s international goalie in favour of Diego Lopez, while current Real coach Carlo Ancelotti has since carried on that trend.
But has Diego performed better than Casillas over the last 12 months? The stats show otherwise.
See a segment from Canal+ (with English subtitles) showing how Iker Casillas ended 2013 with better stats than Diego Lopez.
