In our brand new segment of the Ronaldo.com Awards, we start with the list of five nominees for La Liga’s best goalkeeper of the 2018-19 season.
The Ronaldo.com Awards are finally here, we are going to start with the best five goalkeepers of La Liga and you will vote for the winner.
It has been a long season in the Spanish competition and there are several goalkeepers who deserve a place on this list of nominees.
However, we have decided to only give you a list of five names who will compete for the Ronaldo.com Award trophy that will be selected by our readers.
If you feel like we left a goalkeeper out of the list and you think he deserves to be mentioned, please drop his name in the comment section down below.
We won’t rank these players in any specific order and you will have the chance to vote in the final page of this list.
Ivan Cuellar – Leganes
— C.D. Leganés (@CDLeganes) July 5, 2017
The Leganes goalkeeper surpassed other great goalies such as Real Betis’ Pau Lopez, Alaves’ Fernando Pacheco, and even Valladolid’s Jordi Masip.
Throughout the season, Cuellar played a total of 29 matches and received 35 goals so far.
The season isn’t over yet but we can already start talking about La Liga players because we know that FC Barcelona has the title in the bag.
Ivan Cuellar currently stands with 1,17 goals received per match, which is not bad for a goalie of his stature.
Marc Andre Ter Stegen – FC Barcelona
— Marc ter Stegen (@mterstegen1) April 11, 2019
One of the strong contenders for the Ronaldo.com Award for La Liga’s best goalkeeper.
The German goalie has been one of the best in his position for the last five years and he even took Manuel Neuer’s place in his National Team.
Ter Stegen’s biggest talent is not the low number of goals he allows per match, it is his ability to make saves in the most crucial moments for Barcelona.
Ter Stegen should win the award if the Catalan club wins La Liga by the end of the season.
However, the final decision is up to the voters.
Neto – Valencia CF
It has been a thrilling second half of the season for goalkeeper Neto under manager Marcelino.
After a rocky start last summer, Valencia finally came around and they started winning matches.
Neto has been a huge component of his squad’s rise to the Copa del Rey final against FC Barcelona.
The Brazilian has also been important on his squad’s Europa League performances that include last night’s victory against Villarreal.
Although he may not win the Ronaldo Award this season, we are sure Neto will get a few votes from the readers.
David Soria – Getafe
Acaba el 2018 y casi en el ecuador del campeonato, lanzo el que para mí ha sido el XI REVELACIÓN de #LaLiga en un hilo de 11 tweets.
👤 David SORIA
🧤 IMPONENTE. Solo Oblak ha encajado menos goles (12) que él (13). Tras una temporada difícil en Sevilla, se reivindica pic.twitter.com/1QbZSXKYzO

One of La Liga’s biggest surprises this season. David Soria has been just another component of a very surprising Getafe side this season.
With help from one of the greatest centre-back duos of the season, this goalie has been able to get the second most effective statistical result in the Spanish competition.
WhoScored reports that out of the 30 La Liga matches the goalkeeper has played so far, he has only received 26 goals this season.
His performances for Getafe throughout the season should be more than enough to earn him a call from Luis Enrique to represent Spain.
David Soria is not a rookie but he is one of the biggest revelations of the season.
Jan Oblak – Atletico Madrid
SOLIDEZ DEFENSIVA ⛔️
Jan Oblak es el portero menos goleado de @LaLiga. Nuestro guardameta ha encajado 19 goles en 30 partidos y ha conseguido dejar la portería a cero en 17 duelos. ¡Grande, Jan!💪#AúpaAtleti #BarçaAtleti pic.twitter.com/thcKxHzCp5
— Atlético de Madrid (@Atleti) April 6, 2019
This man is by far the best shot-stopper in the world at the moment, it’s a pity he won’t win La Liga with Atletico Madrid.
His performance against FC Barcelona last weekend was simply spectacular as he prevented the Colchoneros from losing by an even greater margin.
Oblak has played a total of 31 matches so far this season and he’s only received 21 goals.
We could give more credit to the rest of the Atletico Madrid squad for this but Oblak’s work speaks on its own with his many incredible saves.
The man can expect a massive salary increase by the end of the season or he could leave the club to play somewhere else.
You can vote for your favorite La Liga goalkeeper of the season right here, we will tell you who the winner is by the end of the competition.
