Messi and Ronaldo may be rewriting the record books in the race for the Pichichi award, but Víctor Valdés is also writing his own little bit of history on the goalkeeping front. Valdés's record this season reads like a bit of binary code, and the keeper has not let in more than one goal since the second day of the season. This weekend he recorded a "0" against Atlético Madrid, his third in a row to move even further away from his only real rival, Casillas, in the table. Another four clean sheets this weekend as well, for Iraizoz (Athletic), Munúa (Levante), Palop (Sevilla) and Guaita (Valencia), and a shared one between Málaga's Sergio Asenjo and Arnau. Asenjo had to leave the field early on against Sevilla after another serious knee injury, coming just a few weeks after the on-loan Atlético keeper had returned from a long lay-off for the same problem. We wish him a speedy and complete recovery. (09.02.11)
