'Casillas is better than Buffon'

Iker Casillas is a better goalkeeper than Gianluigi Buffon, according to Italy great Dino Zoff.

The two keepers will keep guard of opposing goals on Tuesday in the Champions League semi-final first leg between Real Madrid and Juventus.

The story is too old to be commented.

No he isn't.

Casillas is a shadow of the keeper he once was 5 years ago when he won the world cup. Everyone knows De Gea has surpassed Casillas.

Buffon was better 10 years ago too at his peak when he won his world cup, and he's still better now even though he is older. He performed at the 2014 world cup, still number 1 in Italy's goal.

Casillas was terrible during the world cup, Buffon is a better keeper, but both have had their day, that's not to say they were immense goal keepers.

Casillas has been absolutely wretched this season. Madrid's basically been playing without a keeper. he's a package that needs to go. I can't stress enough how frustrating it is to have him between the sticks. A lot of Madridistas feel this way. What's happening with Keylor is killing me because he's a good keeper... Piss off Casillas

Buffon is still a class keeper. No contest.
