UEFA Champions League

Two Best Forwards In Europe Who Have Scored Against Neuer, Buffon, Casillas And Peter Cech

Scoring against the best goalkeepers in the world is not that easy for most of the forwards and strikers despite how they are at scoring goals. Most of the best forwards have scored over 500 career goals but they are yet to score against every best goalkeeper in Europe.

Goalkeepers such as Manuel Neuer, Iker Casillas, Per Cech, David de Gea, Gianluigi Buffon, Jan Oblak, Allison Becker and Ederson are some of the best goalkeepers in the world. However, most of them have not been the best for the last two decades in football with the likes of Neuer, Buffon, Casillas and Cech being good for over 10 years.

Most of the best forwards in Europe has either scored against two or three in their careers but on a few have managed to score against all the four goalkeepers. Players like Ronaldo and Suarez have managed to score against three of them but they are yet to score against four of them with some being already retired.

The only two forwards in the current football era to score against all the four has been Argentine Lionel Messi and Brazilian Neymar Jr. All two South Americans used to play together at Barcelona and that is the time they scored against all these goalkeepers.

Both stars managed to achieve this record against Neuer in the 2015 Champions League semifinal with both players scoring in both legs. Neymar and Messi also scored against Peter Cech while he was at Arsenal, Buffon in the Champions League final and also quarter-final while they have scored against Casillas several times in El Clasico.
