Oblak starred for Atletico Madrid as he was named 'Man of the Match' in the 1-1 draw with cross-town rivals Real.
He stopped Karim Benzema from scoring not once but TWICE as he made two vital saves to prevent the visitors from scoring in the 80th minute.
The Slovenian international brilliantly denied the Frenchman from point-blank range before making a sensational save while scrambling on the ground.

Needless to say, his heroics between the sticks got fans talking online as they hailed the 28-year-old as the best goalkeeper in the world.

Oblak still the man of the match cause if him never on point today It would have been a easy 3 points for Real Madrid- Prezzi :flag_jm: (@PrezziMc) March 7, 2021
One Twitter user wrote: "Best goalkeeper in the world! There really isn't a debate anymore."
A second tweeted: "Best in the world."
A third added: "First €100m goal keeper."
Unfortunately for Oblak, Benzema popped up again in the 88th minute to cancel out Luis Suarez's opener.
Though Atletico remain at the top of La Liga, three points clear of second-placed Barcelona and five points clear of third-placed Real.
