Sommer and Inter Lead Europe’s Elite for Clean Sheets

No other goalkeeper in Europe’s top five divisions has kept more clean sheets in all competitions this season than Inter’s Yann Sommer thanks to the team’s 1-0 victory over RB Salzburg in the Champions League on Wednesday night. 

Wednesday’s shut-out brings Inter’s tally clean sheet tally up to nine for the season, including two in Europe and seven in Serie A. Sommer has not missed a minute of competitive action so far in 2023-24. 

Focusing just on league action, Inter and Sommer also have the joint-second best defensive record out of the 96 teams in Europe’s top five divisions with six conceded from 11 matches. Juventus share the same record, while Ligue 1 outfit Nice have let just four in so far this campaign. 

In terms of his defensive record, Sommer has also improved on the early results recorded by last season’s no. 1 Andre Onana. 

The current Manchester United stopper had kept a still-impressive tally of seven clean sheets in his first 15 games, conceding 18 goals in total, while Sommer is up to nine clean sheets and just eight conceded from his first 15.
