Who will take Iker Casillas's record?
Though Pepe Reina is still above him in the rankings ahead of a pending move to AC Milan, it is Cristiano Ronaldo who looks the most likely to catch Iker Casillas, though not this season.
The 150+ club is made up of three goalkeepers, four defenders, three midfielders and two forwards. Aside from Ronaldo, the other striker to feature is Raúl González, himself a long-time talismanic figure at the Santiago Bernabéu whose final campaign in the Spanish capital (2009/10) crossed over with Ronaldo's first.
