The goalkeeper position is so unique. It is not enough only to have physical qualities to evolve at a very high level. It is imperative to have a character of steel. Europe is not currently have left out in this sector. The proof with the 30 best goalkeepers of the season, according to the editorial staff of 90min.
Jan Oblak (Atlético de Madrid), It’s hard not to put Jan Oblak in the first place. The Atlético de Madrid goalkeeper has excelled since the start of this year. A great architect of the Colchoneros’ feat in the Champions League against Liverpool, the 27-year-old goalkeeper has not yet finished talking about him. For the return of the most beautiful of European competitions, he could well achieve new exploits.
Marc-André ter Stegen (FC Barcelona) is hard to know where FC Barcelona would be without Lionel Messi. But we can ask the same question with Marc-André ter Stegen. Often abandoned by his defence, the German goalkeeper is always very impressive in the Blaugrana goal. Still under contract until June 2022, Barça is doing everything possible to extend it as quickly as possible. Given its recent performances, it is easy to understand why!
Alisson Becker (Liverpool), A little less prominent than last year and his incredible performances in the Champions League, Alisson Becker remains one of the three best goalkeepers on the planet. Although he can count on a very high-level defence, he can also speak for his qualities. It is also essential in Liverpool. The proof with his absence in the Champions League against Atlético de Madrid which cost the Reds dearly.
Thibaut Courtois (Real Madrid), Admittedly, the first part of the season did not bode well for Thibaut Courtois. Far from making unanimity in the cage of Real Madrid, we wondered even if Alphonse Areola would not take his place as the holder. But the Belgian doorman recovered very well afterwards. He is now back to his best level, which gives him a prominent place in this ranking. Only 28 years old, he has plenty to hope for on the podium in the months to come.
Keylor Navas (PSG), The Paris Saint-Germain, was finally able to find a porter at the highest level. In recent years, the post of the goalkeeper has often been lacking at the capital club. But this is no longer the case! Thomas Tuchel can entirely count on one of the best at his post. Keylor Navas had already demonstrated all his talent with Real Madrid, and he continues with PSG. A good omen for the Parisians, for the return of the Champions League!
