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 La Liga over the years, from Real Madrid’s Iker Casillas to Andoni Zubizarreta, who is the Spanish top-flight’s appearance record holder with 622 outings across spells with Athletic Bilbao, Barcelona and Valencia.

That continues to be the case today. Just last season, Barcelona’s Marc-André ter Stegen topped the goalkeeping pile for clean sheets (26) in La Liga, conceding just 18 times in 3,348 minutes of action, while Edgar Badia registered the most saves (139), ending the campaign with a save percentage of 68.9%.

But, of course, goalkeeping isn’t just about clean sheets. While the best goalkeepers will rank pretty highly in that, aided by their defences, at the other end of the table, saves matter. A goalkeeper capable of making vital saves can be the difference between relegation and safety. Or, in some cases, it can make differences higher up the table.

Athletic Bilbao’s Unai Simón is currently leading the way for clean sheets on 16, with seven other goalkeepers also hitting double figures. Filip Jorgensen sits top for saves on 137, and is one of just four goalkeepers to reach a century this season.

So, who are the goalkeeper leaders for saves and clean sheets so far this campaign?
