The three candidates for the best goalkeeper of the 2016/17 Champions League.

UEFA have officially named the three candidates for the best goalkeeper from last season’s Champions League. The Winner will be revealed on August 24.

Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus)

Buffon was almost unbeaten throughout the tournament, until he faced Real Madrid. The 39-year-old conceded more goals against ‘Los Blancos’ in ninety minutes than in the entire competition. Gigi’s Champions League dream was not to be, but will he get another chance next season?

Jan Oblak (Atlético Madrid)

The goalkeeper enjoyed an impressive campaign for Atletico between the sticks. Although he could not prevent arch rivals Real Madrid progressing to the final, he made some vital saves to help his team throughout the competition.

Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich)

Neuer helped Bayern to the Champions League quarter-final stage but his team were unable to stop Real Madrid on their path to becoming European Champions. The German remains one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
