The 25 goalkeepers with the most clean sheets since the year 2000 (11th-1st)

Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon is currently in second-place

10. Mickael Landreau

Clean sheets – 253

The man with the most Ligue 1 appearances ever, with 618. The now retired Frenchman excelled at Nantes, Paris Saint-Germain, Lille and Bastia.

9. Victor Valdes

Clean sheets – 260

One of Barcelona’s greatest ever. The retired Spaniard is now trying to make his way in the managerial world.

8. Edwin van der Sar

Clean sheets – 266

A goalkeeping icon. Van der Sar enjoyed success with Ajax, Juventus and Fulham, before going on to become a Manchester United legend during the final stages of his career

7. Andriy Pyatov

Clean sheets – 269

Shakhtar Donetsk and Ukraine’s main man between the posts. The 36-year-old is still going strong with both and will almost certainly significantly add to his tally in the coming years.

6. Igor Akinfeev

Clean sheets – 316

No ‘keeper has kept more clean sheets in the history of Russian football that Akinfeev. He made his CSKA Moscow debut at the age of 16 and became the club’s number one at 17 in 2003.

5. Manuel Neuer

Clean sheets – 327

Fifth on the list overall, but the Bayern Munich shot-stopper has the highest percentage of clean sheets compared to games played at 46.8% – what a player!

4. Pepe Reina

Clean sheets – 343

We can’t see Reina adding many more clean sheets to his record at Aston Villa, but his brilliance with Liverpool, Villarreal and Napoli see the Spaniard sitting cosy in fourth.

3. Petr Cech

Clean sheets – 391

We all forget just how good Cech was with Chelsea. His escapades with the Blues put him comfortably top of the Premier League’s all-time clean sheet chart with 202 to his name.

2. Gianluigi Buffon

Clean sheets – 420

Buffon recently signed a contract extension with Juventus, so the 42-year-old icon may have a shot at taking the number one position before he retires.

1. Iker Casillas

Clean sheets – 439

But it’s going to be mighty hard for Buffon, though. Casillas take top spot by quite a distance, amassing comfortably more than double the clean sheets of 25th-placed Schmeichel.

So Spain and Real Madrid’s greatest ever goalkeeper sits at the top of the pile with a healthy buffer.

Remember when Jose Mourinho dropped him for Diego Lopez? Crazy times.
