Goalkeepers are one of the most fundamental base for a trophy winning team. The recent examples include Real Madrid’s Iker Casillas and Barcelona’s Victor Valdes. The pair were dominant figures between the sticks in La Liga for an ample amount of years.

Blue marked numbers are for goalkeepers who played for a single club.

S.N Name Number of Cleansheets
1 Andoni Zubizarreta 235
2 Iker Casillas 177
3 Victor Valdes 173
4 Santiago Canizares 123
5 Cesar Sanchez 105
6 Alberto Lopez 104
7 Jose Francisco Molina 97

Iker Casillas was a regular for his club Real Madrid winning five La Liga titles. He also added three Champions League medals to his vault. His reliability and his leadership qualities outlines his success as the Spanish captain winning the World Cup in 2010 and two Euro Cup titles in 2008 and 2012.

Meanwhile, Victor Valdes was a part of one of La Liga’s greatest sides in Barcelona. His prowess in one-on-one situations helped him become an integral part of Pep Guardiola’s system. Consequently he won two Champions League titles under the Spaniard. Meanwhile, he was certainly unlucky to have born in the same generation as Iker Casillas as he couldn’t cement a starting berth in the national side.
Furthermore, going up towards the list is another Spanish goalkeeper Andoni Zubizarreta. The Barcelona legend was a constant presence between the sticks from 1986-1994. As a result, he made 301 appearances for the club before leaving for Valencia. Also, he was record goalkeeper signing for Barcelona at one point.  Meanwhile, the Spaniard also helped Barcelona win a European Cup in 1992. Hence, his 235 cleansheets for the Spanish powerhouse puts him furthest in the list.
