Iker Casillas and Atlético de Madrid midfielder Gabi went head-to-head in the build-up to the Copa del Rey final on 17th May at an event organised by Mahou.
During the event, footage was shown of Casillas speaking about the famous defeat in the cup final against Deportivo de La Coruña, during the club’s centenary year, and his anxiety about history repeating itself.
“Maybe it’s the nerves. The Bernabéu perhaps had an influence: it was weird to see the fans split 50-50. I was stunned. I don’t know, but it gives me a bad feeling”.
The Real Madrid captain has faith in his teammates: “I’m sure the team will do its best because the players want to finish the season on a high. The cup final is a special match. People are excited”.
