Video: Real Madrid Goalie Keylor Navas Pulls Off Stunning Save v Juventus

Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas pulled-off an astonishing save from close-range against Juventus in the Champions League earlier tonight.

The Costa Rican stopper took his place between the sticks for the quarter-final first-leg in Turin, and it wasn’t long before Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for the defending European champions.

But Juventus rallied and really should’ve been level after just 22 minutes when striker Gonzalo Higuain managed to connect with a sweet cross into the middle, but the Argentine forward didn’t bank on Navas being in such extraordinary form:

Los Blancos have been linked with Manchester United’s David de Gea for several years now, as a replacement for Navas in goals, but when he’s pulling out the stops like this, is there really any need to change things?

What do you think of the save, and Navas’s status as Real Madrid’s first-choice with the La Liga giants?
