Goalkeepers were hit for a massive 41 goals this weekend, although our leader Jan Oblak appeared to be oblivious to all the goings on, the Slovenian number one clocking up his eighth clean sheet in ten games as Atlético beat Las Palmas 0-3 to stay in top spot. Having only let in 8 goals to date at the mid-point of the season, Oblak’s statistics are better than the all-time best, set by Deportivo’s Liaño, who let in 18 in the 38 matches of the 1993/94 campaign. Only last year’s Zamora Claudio Bravo is anywhere near the leader, and he too recorded a clean sheet as Barcelona thrashed Athletic Bilbao 6-0. Athletic did lose their own keeper Irureta though after he was red-carded for giving away a penalty on Luis Suárez with only three minutes gone, and Herrerín came on to replace him. Not the right day though to make his first league appearance of the season! Villarreal’s Areola and Betis’ Adán were the only other minders not to let in a goal this weekend, their two teams playing out a 0-0 draw on Saturday, and there were two goalkeeping changes, Mat Ryan and Juan Carlos coming in for Jaume Domenech and Yoel in the Sunday mid-day game between Valencia and Rayo Vallecano.
