“Buffon told me that the red card made it easier for them,” Casillas commented on Mediaset Premium.

“We tried to do well, but those two minutes really changed everything. We could’ve fought it out with Juventus otherwise.

“It’ll be better for us in the second leg if they have someone sent off early on, but either way we need to work hard and keep believing.

“It will be difficult, but we will give it our best in Turin.”

Casillas was asked why he had opted to begin again at Porto.

“My time at Real Madrid had come to an end.”
