Cameroon shot-stopper Carlos Kameni has a history of upsetting the biggest stars in La Liga, and once again shone over the weekend.
It was thanks to the 32-year-old’s heroics between the sticks that his side Malaga earned a goalless draw against Barca on Saturday, despite playing more than 20 minutes with 10 men.
In doing so, he became the goalkeeper who has conceded the fewest goals against the Catalan giants this century, according to AS.
The 0-0 stalemate – a game Lionel Messi missed due to illness – was Kameni’s seventh clean sheet against the Blaugrana.
He has kept three for Malaga and four during his stint with his former club Espanyol, one more than Casillas’ six shutouts against Barca during his time at Real Madrid.
Kameni was the last goalkeeper to stop Barcelona from scoring in a La Liga match at the Camp Nou, in a 1-0 win in February 2015, and has now achieved the same outcome 32 games later.
