Behind in the score, Sevilla surged forward and only Casillas' goalkeeping denied the hosts a quick leveller.

The Spain international produced a candidate for save of the season in the 12th minute, superbly pushing Manu del Moral's strike onto the post after the Sevilla attacker was afforded space on the left by Álvaro Arbeloa.

"Sevilla played well but then so did we. Casillas made two important saves at an important time and then our reaction was good," Real boss José Mourinho said.


Casillas' amazing save very similar to this one from a few years ago, also against Sevilla.
