Keylor Navas’ exhibition against Tottenham was the latest in a string of fine performances from the Real Madrid keeper, who is currently the top shot-stopper aong Europe’s biggest clubs.
Despite constant rumours of Madrid making a move for a new keeper, with David de Gea and Thibaut Courtois usually top of that list, the Costa Rica international’s importance to the side keeps growing.
Navas has made 39 saves from 47 shots faced in all competitions in 2017-18 at a success rate of 80 percent. No keeper among Europe’s top sides has been under greater siege this season.
Navas faces more shots than his peers
Barcelona’s Marc-André Ter Stegen chas faced 39 shots, making 31 saves at a stop percentage of 78.
De Gea, the Manchester United keeper, has made 32 saves from 37 shots with an 86.4 percent success rate, but has played a game less than Navas.
Atlético’s Jan Oblak, winner of the Zamora trophy in the past two Liga seasons, has faced 37 shots on target and made 29 stops at 80.5 percent, practically equal to Navas’ rate.
Finally, Courtois has made 26 saves from 35 shots at Chelsea at a rate of 74 percent.
