Gianluigi Donnarumma: PSG's Italian Wall

This season, Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is a wall for the capital club. Here's a statistical overview of how effective the 25-year-old has been for the Parisians.

Donnarumma has made vital saves for PSG to help them reach the top of the Ligue 1 table. The former AC Milan shot-stopper has prevented 9.8 goals this season, which is the second-best positive differential for a goalkeeper in Europe’s top five leagues.

Only RC Lens' Brice Samba has prevented more goals (10.9) than the PSG star. Following these two standouts are Le Havre's Arthur Desmas (8.6), Las Palmas' Alvaro Vallés (8.1), and LOSC Lille's Lucas Chevalier (7.8). 

Donnarumma registered six saves against Monaco last Friday, marking his fifth game this season where he has made more than five saves in a Ligue 1 match. Only Clermont Foot goalkeeper Mory Diaw (eight games) has done so more times than Donnarumma.

Since joining PSG in 2021, Donnarumma has recorded 27 clean sheets in 76 games, the most clean sheets in France’s top flight during this period. 

In Ligue 1, other stellar goalkeepers are racking up clean sheets. Pau López has kept 26 clean sheets in 85 games while Samba has kept the same number of clean sheets in just 61 games. Marco Bizot follows closely with 25 clean sheets in 97 games, Alban Lafont has 24 clean sheets in 93 games, and Chevalier boasts 24 clean sheets in 56 games.

The Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper's performance in the UEFA Champions League falls slightly short of his standards in Ligue 1. Donnarumma has made at least four saves in more than half of his matches (four out of seven) during this season's competition.
