It’s now a few weeks before the curtains come down for the 2017/18 La Liga season. As is to be expected every season, there have been outstanding performers in every department, Lionel Messi as always produced the goods all season round while Cristiano Ronaldo left it late scoring his most goals in the second half of the season. In the goalkeeping department, there also have been some outstanding players who have shown that they can compete with the best of the best. The following are the best goalkeepers in La Liga so far, you can have your say of who is the best goalkeeper in La Liga for this season by visiting netbet.co.uk.
Jan Oblak (Atletico Madrid)
Atletico Madrid’s goalkeeper has been one of their standout performers keeping 19 clean sheets in 30 games. The phenomenal record illustrates how Oblak has matured as a goalkeeper becoming a leader at the back. Oblak has played every game for Atletico Madrid in the league this season clocking 2700 minutes. In that time, he has saved 82 shots from the 334 shots he has faced. Oblak has been on the losing side in the league in just 3 matches, drawing 7 and winning 20. He is also one of the most disciplined players in the team with a single yellow card and red card.
Marc-Andre Ter Stegen (Barcelona)
Marc-Andre Ter Stegen closely follows Jan Oblak. He has featured in all of Barcelona’s 31 games in the league so far clocking 2790 minutes. He has managed to prevent the opposite team from scoring on 18 occasions and he has never lost a league game he has played this season. He has 24 wins and seven draws under his belt. Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has saved 78 shots from the 328 he has faced and is one of the most disciplined La Liga players with zero yellow cards and zero red cards.
Ivan Cuellar (Leganes)
It’s always tough for a goalkeeper when he plays for a team whose main objective is to stay in the league. That, however, has not stopped Ivan Cuellar from showing that he is one of the best when it comes to shot stopping. Ivan Cuellar has been a regular face in Leganes’ La Liga starting 11 playing all 31 league games. He has saved 86 shots from the 343 he has faced so far. Ivan Cuellar also has 12 clean sheets despite Leganes having won only 10 games, drawn 6 and lost 15 all season.
Fernando Pacheco (Alaves)
More like Ivan Cuellar, Fernando Pacheco plays for a team which makes him one of their most important players as he faces relatively more shots on goal than those goalkeepers playing for bigger teams. This, however, has not stopped Fernando Pacheco from keeping 9 clean sheets, the fourth highest in the league. Fernando Pacheco has 96 saves from 422 shots faced in 31 league games. His team has won 11 times, drawn twice and lost 18 times. He is also one of the most disciplined players in the league with just two yellow cards from 31 matches.
