The battle for the Ronaldo.com Best Ligue 1 Goalkeeper for the 2018-19 campaign was really close, as Alphonse Areola edged out Stephane Ruffier and Walter Benitez by a single vote.

Areola shared the place between the sticks at Paris Saint-Germain with Italian legend Gianluigi Buffon. The Frenchman made 21 appearances, noting 11 clean sheets and conceding 17 goals in the process.

He won his third League 1 crown with the Parisians this season, but failed to clinch the Coupe de France as well, losing to Rennes in the final’s penalty shootout.
