The top four is compiled by goalkeepers from four different European league. Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak leads the way with 24 clean sheets in 37 appaerances, two more than PSG’s Kevin Trapp. Oblak also heads all goalkeepers with just 15 goals conceded.
Bayern’s Manuel Neuer and Juventus’ Gianluigi Buffon are ranked third with 21 clean sheets in 37 matches. However, the German has conceded two goals less so far.
Ranked fifth is the first Premier League goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet. Liverpool’s goalkeeper has conceded 41 goals in 43 appearances, but has kept 17 clean sheets. That’s one better than Arsenal’s Petr Cech and Villarreal’s Alphonse Areola.
The Belgian has been criticised heavily during his spell at Anfield, with Jurgen Klopp reportedly looking to add at least one competitor for the 28-year-old.
