Which goalkeeper has the best save record in Europe this season?

Goal teams up with Opta to find the best goalkeeper on the continent across the top domestic leagues based on their shots-to-saves ratio so far this term
Manuel Neuer officially has the best shots-to-saves ratio of any goalkeeper in Europe in the first half of the 2014-15 campaign.

The Bayern Munich man has made 33 saves in the Bundesliga, meaning he has kept out 89 per cent of the efforts he has faced so far this season.

That percentage is enough to put him clear at the summit of our top 10 list of keepers, which only includes the men between the posts who have played 10 league games or more.

Roma's Morgan De Sanctis takes second place with an impressive figure of 82.98%, having kept out 39 shots on his goal in Serie A, while Yann Sommer of Borussia Monchengladbach is in third on 82.42%.

Just behind the Switzerland keeper is Genoa's Mattia Perin, whose 53 saves and shots-to-saves percentage of 81.25% puts him in fourth spot.

Gianluigi Buffon is usually accustomed to finishing in first place but he has to settle for fifth position in our list - despite boasting a credible return of 80.65% - having kept out 25 efforts on goal.

Barcelona are famed for their ability in the final third but in Claudio Bravo - a summer signing from Real Sociedad - they have found a worthy successor to the departed Victor Valdes.

Bravo's shots-to-saves mark of 80.56% gives him sixth place just ahead of Stephane Ruffier of Saint-Etienne, who is on a healthy 80%. 

Valencia's return to the upper echelons of La Liga has been at least partly down to Diego Alves, who takes eighth spot having made 39 saves in 15 appearances at a shots-to-save percentage of 79.59%.

And occupying the final two slots in our list are Jeroen Zoet of PSV (79.41%) and Hamburg's Jaroslav Drobny (78.67%).
