It is really important to have a great goalkeeper on your team. On all fantasy football platforms, goalkeepers can represent the success or failure of their final score, and this is also true for Sorare. Typically, there are fewer Goalkeeper cards available than other positions in the middle of the pitch, as there can only be one goalkeeper playing a given game. Keep in mind that in addition to the fact that the pool of goalkeepers is already quite low, when the goalkeepers who do not get minutes as reserves of the owner are excluded from the list, the pool narrows even further. This is why it is important to specifically analyze the owners of each team, and today we will do it for the goalkeepers of Serie A, a nation with a great tradition of phenomena in goal.
Quality goalkeepers have a premium price, if we want to define it that way. The statistics of individual players can give us a great hand in understanding their skill, even if, in the case of extreme defenders, these can also be misleading. A good goalkeeper who plays in a team with a poor defensive phase will in fact take – as is natural – more goals than a less capable colleague who has a champion defense in front of him. Taking several vintages into consideration can partially mitigate the problem, perhaps by cross-referencing the data with the percentage of penalties also saved. Let’s see them together.
The Argentine goalkeeper joined Udinese from the Racing Club in 2018, immediately becoming the owner. In Italy, his average number of goals conceded per game is 1.36.

Reina / Strakosha (Lazio)
Reina represents certainty, especially for Sarri, who had him at Napoli and has always spoken well of him.

Meret / Ospina (Naples)
Until last season, Ospina was the owner, but from this year the changeover with Meret seems to have been done. Meret has always been considered one of the most important prospects nationwide. Growing up in the Udinese youth academy, when asked who feels he is technically similar, he replies Handanovic, a goalkeeper that they know very well in Udine. In common with the Slovenian, Meret certainly has the courage and the ability to attack the ball, especially in the most desperate occasions, trying to cover the goal as much as possible.
Rui Patricio (Rome)

Portuguese national, with whom he played in the last European Championships, Rui Patricio is a goalkeeper with great charisma, with excellent reflexes and with a long international palmares.
