Keylor Navas, penalty saving specialist


NEWS | 22/08/2017

The goalkeeper has saved 50% of the penalties that he has faced as a madridista in LaLiga.
Keylor Navas showed again at Riazor his penalty saving abilities. The goalkeeper topped off a great performance against Deportivo by turning Florín Andone’s penalty behind for a corner, saving his fourth penalty for the madridistas in LaLiga. Since joining the Whites, Navas has faced eight penalties in this competition, saving half of them.
The first of them was in the second game of the 2015/16 league season, when he kept out the penalty from Rubén Castro (Betis). In that same season, the Costa Rican saved two more spot kicks: from Griezmann in the Vicente Calderón and Gamerio in the thrashing of Sevilla at the Bernabéu. In his time at Real Madrid, Navas has saved the second most penalties for the club in the league, behind only Diego Alves.
