With so much focus now on goalkeepers being the first point of attack, it’s easy to forget the job they’re primarily there to do: keep the ball out of the net.

A number of the world’s best goalkeepers have plied their trade in the Bundesliga over the years, from Bayern Munich legends past and present Oliver Kahn and Manuel Neuer, to Harald “Toni” Schumacher, who is the only goalkeeper to play for Bayern, Dortmund and Schalke.

That continues to be the case today. Just last season, RB Leipzig’s Peter Gulacsi topped the pile for clean sheets (15) and fewest goals conceded (30), closely followed by the likes of Koen Casteels of Wolfsburg. Of course, had Manuel Neuer and Lukas Hradecky been fit for the full 34 games, they’d have both come much closer in the final standings. Augsburg’s Rafal Gikiewicz was the busiest goalkeeper in the German top-flight, making 129 saves.

Who will make the most saves and keep the most clean sheets in 2021/22? Keep track of the tables below throughout the upcoming season to see which goalkeepers are pulling out all the stops.
