Tonight Casillas' Last Chance?

Real Madrid goalkeeper, Iker Casillas, has admitted he hasn’t been at his best in recent games and the European Super Cup against Sevilla might be his last chance to shine.

The 33-year-old shot stopper underperformed at the World Cup for Spain and his blunder in the Champions League final almost cost his club the title.

In addition, he has a new competitor after the Los Blancos bought Costa Rican keeper, Keylor Navas, but Casillas says he has been through worse moments in his career and is up for the challenge.

"I don't think I'm going through one of the worst patches in my career, sometimes you have good games and sometimes bad. Everything goes in cycles", he said at a press conference.

"Maybe my performances haven't been as good as people are used to, but these things happen in football.

“I have to admit that I haven't been at my best in recent games with Real Madrid and Spain, but I've had worse moments in my playing career, which I've analysed and turned into positives.”

“I know that after so long at Madrid you are always being watched. But the club has treated me very well, I have no complaints. I want to push myself even harder than last year.”

However, Casillas is something like Real’s talisman. Out of nine finals in which he appeared the club has won seven and he hasn’t lost a final since 2008.
