A save for the Champions League. Roma thank Handanovic (Stats)

AS Roma Fans

The Giallorossi face Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico today. Roma are still in a Champions League spot thanks to Handanovic’s penalty save against Atalanta.

When Samir Handanovic halted Muriel from the penalty spot yesterday, likely many Roma fans celebrated it like a goal by their team at the very last minute. Inter-Atalanta ended 1-1 at the Stadio San Siro yesterday and the Lupi have a chance to widen the gap with Gasperini‘s side but only if they will be able to defeat Juventus.

Samir Handanovic is one of the best goalkeepers in the world. His incredible efficiency on penalties is clearly highlighted by unquestionable statistical numbers.

As reported by Transfermarkt.it through their official Facebook profile, the Slovenian football star is the second-best penalty saver of the Italian Serie A behind the former Sampdoria and Inter Gianluca Pagliuca.

  • Pagliuca: 31 PK saved;
  • Handanovic: 30;
  • Marchegiani: 21;
  • Buffon: 21;
  • Consigli: 20.
