|2021 seems to be a record-breaking year in soccer games. Bayern Munich shoot stopper Manuel Neuer is the latest person to break the record. After holding 90 minutes, Manuel Neuer celebrates FC Bayern’s 1-0 victory at FC Augsburg on Wednesday night. Not only was it possible, it was also a very special milestone. The Bayern goalkeeper broke the record for the cleanest shutout on top flights with the 196th Bundesliga shutout. This is the best mark shared with former FCB keeper Oliver Kahn. However, Neuer needed only 422 games to achieve this, while Kahn needed 557 games. The goalkeeper, along with Back 4, took some time to reach the record. Bayern has not been shut out in the league since Matchday 5. “It’s special because I got 3 points,” Neuer said, and Hans-Flick head coach was happy with the shutout victory. Munich was well defended against Augsburg and the home team had few chances. The FCA couldn’t even aim at the target against Bayern for the entire 90 minutes (a post hit counts as off-target). In the very dominant first half, Bayern did not even allow single shots. This is the last feat achieved against Borussia Dortmund in November 2019. But Neuer was lucky at one point tonight. In the 76th minute, the World Goalkeeper of the Year jumped in the wrong way due to a penalty for Alfres Finbogason, but a post came to rescue the 34-year-old captain of Bayern. |
A chance to break the record at home “The whole of our defense units poured a lot into it. We didn’t allow a big chance and it was worth it, “Neuer said. The Bavarians want to take the next step to defend the title with the same effort in the match at FC Schalke 04 on Sunday. For Neuer, it’s a return home. The perfect setting to be the only record holder for most league clean sheets.
