Top 5 Best Goalkeepers Cristiano Ronaldo Has Beaten

Cristiano Ronaldo knows no limits for scoring goals with even some of history’s greatest goalkeepers standing no chance against him.

1. Thibaut Courtois

The Belgian shot-stopper has really made a name for himself in the last eight years.

From a nobody at Genk in 2011, Courtois is now one of the most renowned goalkeepers in Europe.

He has impressed greatly for Atletico Madrid, Chelsea and Real Madrid ever since.

2. David de Gea

The Red Devils No.1 also fared alright against new teammate Ronaldo at the beginning until they met in the 2018 World Cup.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick to not only deny Spain victory against Portugal but ruin De Gea at the same time.

He’s never been the same keeper since then.

While his performances haven’t been up to scratch lately, De Gea is still one of Europe’s best when on form.

De Gea has done a decent job since his arrival from Atletico Madrid in 2011.

He has improved greatly and once made a stunning 14 saves in a single match.

3. Gianluigi Buffon

Widely respected as one of football’s greatest goalkeepers in history, it seems only right that Buffon made this list.

The 43-year-old remains strong to this day even though his best days are long gone.

It’s quite an achievement considering most players retire in their early to mid-thirties.

He also holds the proud record of being the first Serie A keeper to save a VAR-awarded penalty.

4. Manuel Neuer

Neuer may be two inches taller than Cristiano Ronaldo, but it’s never helped him anyway.

He is one of the greatest goalkeepers of the 21 century having made countless impressive saves for Germany and Bayern Munich.

His exploits have seen him become a World Cup and Champions League winner during his career.

The seven-time Bundesliga champion even finished an impressive third place in the 2014 Ballon d’Or behind Lionel Messi and Ronaldo.

5.Petr Cech

The former Chelsea and Arsenal keeper was perhaps the best during his peak days.
