Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas may not be a regular in La Liga, but that has hardly stopped the Spaniard from continuing his record-breaking feats.

Casillas notched his 26th derby win over Atletico Madrid yesterday, a run that also saw his personal clean-sheet tally extend to a record 862 minutes.

Arguably the biggest record, however, was according to Spanish daily Marca, who claim Casillas has become the first player in the 100-year-old cup to go a campaign without conceding.

The record comes amid Casillas' ongoing battle to regain a spot in Carlo Ancelotti's La Liga squad.


However, Casillas was quoted as saying after yesterday's game: "I'm happy, really. We are in the final, which was our goal, and I've been on a good run without conceding a goal.

"I'm happy about this figure, the derby is a special game for everyone, especially for those of Madrid, and always happy to go for so long without losing to Atletico.

"I couldn't care less about the final opponent. Hopefully it's a nice match. But all I am interested in is that we have done our job."

Barcelona could most likely be their opponents in the final, given that the Catalans hold a 2-0 advantage over Real Sociedad ahead of tonight's second-leg.
