Clean sheets: Hall of Fame

Clean sheets: Hall of Fame

Check out which goalkeepers dominate the historical records for clean sheets in Ligue 1 Uber Eats.

Called up to the French national team for the first time in his career, Brice Samba is in fine form for Les Sang et Or. With RC Lens, the 'keeper has already managed 11 clean sheets in season 22-23. That's as many as PSG's Gianluigi Donnarumma and one fewer than leader Yehvann Diouf (Stade de Reims). And this at a save rate of 78% - the second-best record among goalkeepers with at least ten games in Ligue 1 Uber Eats.

With ten matches left in the season, Samba would still need to make a clean sweep to match the top performances in this area achieved by the three goalkeepers who have kept 21 clean sheets in a single season - one of whom is Mike Maignan, the former LOSC player who is also part of the France squad.

Since 2001, only five goalkeepers have reached 20 clean sheets in a single season, with Damien Gregorini (OGCN) and Danijel Subasic (ASM) matching the feat by the overall top three performers.

Ligue 1 Uber Eats single-season clean sheets record:
1. Salvatore Sirigu (PSG, 12-13), Mike Maignan (LOSC, 21-22) and Vincent Enyeama (LOSC, 13-14): 21
4. Damien Grégorini (OGCN, 02-03) and Danijel Subasic (ASM, 14-15): 20
6. Salvatore Sirigu (PSG, 13-14), Fabien Cool (AJA, 02-03), Cédric Carrasso (TFC, 08-09), Ali Ahamada (TFC, 11-12) and Ulrich Ramé (FCGB, 05-06): 19

Mandanda: Still going

In the history of Ligue 1 Uber Eats, Steve Mandanda (SRFC) is the only goalkeeper currently playing in Ligue 1 Uber Eats to appear in the top 20 for clean sheets. Far ahead of the French international and his 161 Ligue 1 Uber Eats clean sheets (in 495 games), four goalkeepers - led by Jean-Luc Ettori of AS Monaco - have managed to pass the 200 clean-sheet mark.
