The men between the sticks have been very busy in this 2019-20 Italian Serie A season. From pulling spectacular saves to maintaining clean sheets, these special players have equally added to the intense competition that is the top Italian league. A few have stood out more than others with their exceptional performances. We are going to explore the best goalkeepers in Serie A this 2019/20 season.
Here are the 5 best goalkeepers so far of the ongoing Serie A season.
1. Gianluigi Donnarumma – AC Milan
The AC Milan shot-stopper has been imperious in goal for the Milan giants this season. In spite of the Rossoneri’s poor form Donnarumma has still been able to keep an impressive league-high of 10 clean sheets. The Italian international has also made over 73 saves in this ongoing campaign to cement his place as the top shot-stopper in the League.
2. Marco Silvestri – Hellas Verona
Hellas Verona number 1 Silvestri is another goalkeeper who has done well this season. The 28-year-old has been part of a solid Verona backline, which has conceded 24 goals this season the 4th best defence in the league so far. The former Leeds United keeper has pulled off 72 saves, which resulted in 9 clean sheets despite playing for a modest Verona team.
3. Thomas Strakosha – Lazio
The Albanian international has been in great form for his SS Lazio team. The Lazio number 1 has kept the opposition out an impressive 8 times, also pulling off a huge 77 saves. This has in no small measure contributed to Lazio’s tight defence this season, conceding only 23 goals the 2nd lowest number of goals let in so far this campaign.
4. Juan Musso – Udinese Calcio
The Argentine international’s performances for Udinese Calcio so far this season have been commendable. The Udinese shot-stopper has been one of the bright sparks for the Zebrette, who have struggled a bit this season. Juan’s 79 saves and 8 clean sheets have helped his side avoid the relegation zone. Hopefully, Juan will be able to maintain his fine and help guarantee another season of top-flight football for Udinese. His sharp reflexes and extraordinary all handling skills puts him among the best goalkeepers in Serie A this season.
5. Emil Audero – UC Sampdoria
The Italian-Indonesian goalkeeper has also been turning heads this season. The 23-year-old has been posting fantastic performances for his club UC Sampdoria. His 70 saves and 7 clean sheets have been invaluable for his Genoa-based side as they fight to avoid relegation. The Sampdoria shot-stopper will be hoping his fine form helps his side avoid the drop.
