Jan Oblak's 'Starfish' Stop Was The Best Save From Tuesday's Champions League Games

Jan Oblak's 'Starfish' Stop Was The Best Save From Tuesday's Champions League Games

Jan Oblak did his best Peter Schmeichel impression in the Champions League.

The incredible Slovenian-shot stopper is highly regarded, and is even viewed as the best keeper in the world.

Oblak is producing heroics between the sticks on a regular basis for Atletico Madrid, and he continued that brilliant form last night in Europe.

He made a stunning second-half save to prevent Club Brugge from scoring.

The ball was floated into the box with Peres Petroni meeting the cross with a header, yet he was unable to hit the back of net courtesy of brilliance from Oblak who performed a 'starfish' save.

What a stop.

Oblak has become a clean-sheet merchant, keeping goalscorers at bay.

The 25-year-old is in his fifth season at 'Atleti' and continues to attract interest from around Europe.

He wasn't the only keeper in fine fettle on Tuesday. Alisson did bits in goal at Anfield as Liverpool secured a spot in the knockout stage.

He saved from point blank in superb fashion.

The Brazilian set Liverpool back a staggering £66 million but he's proving to be an unreal signing, having already churned out heroics, winning points for his new side.

Jurgen Klopp hilariously reacted to his save: "If I knew Alisson was this good - I would have paid double!"

Oblak or Alisson - who's the better keeper? Let us know.
