Barcelona's Claudio Bravo breaks La Liga record of longest clean sheet to start the season

Oct 4, 12:54 PM

With Barcelona possessing such an array of talent on the pitch, it can be tough for 'keepers at the club to earn the respect they deserve.

Just ask Victor Valdes.

However, the 21st minute of Barcelona's fixture versus Rayo Vallecano on Saturday saw Claudio Bravo enter the La Liga record books for longest clean sheet to start the season, a feat that deserves acclaim regardless of the player's club:

Bravo has saved all eight shots on target that have come his way this season, and one has to wonder if we'll see a single team score on the Catalan club before they meet Real Madrid on Oct. 25.
