VALDES BREAKS RECORDS

Victor Valdes broke the records set by himself when playing against Espanyol. The Barcelona number 1 played a great part to help his side keep such a strong defensive record. He proved it when he made an extraordinary save during the first half of the Espanyol game when their striker Jose Maria Callejon was on target.

However, later during the second half of the game, the Argentinean striker Karim Benzema found himself on target as Victor Valdes broke his own record of keeping a clean sheet by six minutes.

The last player who was able to beat Victor Valdes was the Villarreal’s Brazilian striker Nilmar. It was one month ago as the game took place in the home ground of Barcelona, the Nou Camp. The Spanish Champions won it 3-1 to take all three points but there was no other striker who was able to beat the Catalan goal stopper until Pablo Daniel Osvaldo got the ball past him after a month.
