Dinamo Zagreb goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic made an astounding double save which included a blinding effort with his right foot against CSKA Moscow last night.
Livakovic made the save in the 81st minute of the game in what turned out to be a comfortable 3-1 victory for Zagreb at the Maksimir stadium.
The Croatian international has garnered high praise with his performances in the Europa League this season. He has managed to keep clean sheets throughout; conceding his only goal of the season so far during last night’s encounter.
Livakovic almost became the first goalkeeper in history to go through the group stages of a European competition without conceding a goal with Kristijan Bistrovic’s goal last night in the 76th minute being the only blip in his record.
As much as Livakovic would have loved to make history by keeping a clean sheet last night, he did break the record of going the longest in a European competition without conceding a goal for his team.
The Zadar native held a clean sheet for 527 minutes this season, thus breaking the previous record of 482 minutes held by Manchester United legend Van Der Sar in the 2010/11 edition of the Champions League.
Even Manuel Neuer would be proud of it, check out his brilliant save below –
