Iker Casillas was key in the 2-1 win in the second leg of the Super Cup thanks to his saves. The goalkeeper spoke from the field after the match: "The match was ours, we had a lot of chances and Valdés was phenomenal. We have a great group of players. I honestly think that we deserved it. Barcelona were with ten for a long time and have showed great professionalism by staying on the field after the match."

Casillas also recalled Di María's goal in the first leg: "In the Camp Nou, Barcelona had the opportunity to score the fourth goal but we went straight up the other end and scored and that goal gave us a lift."
