Samir Handanović and Gianluigi Buffon needed a lot more: Matevž Vidovšek has stopped four penalties in Europe
While it is true that Matevž Vidovšek committed both eleven-meter penalties for Slovan in Thursday’s conference league match, it is also true that if he Olimpija hadn’t, they would have lost to the Slovaks by an even higher margin. Not to mention how he was let down by his teammates before the two fouls for the harshest penalty… Anyway, Matevž Vidovšek had to face two shots from the white spot in Stožice. The second one failed, the first one was stopped. It was his fourth penalty saved in European Cups!
As revealed by the tireless chronicler of events at Olimpija OptaŽabar, it took Matevž Vidovšek just 14 international matches to defend four eleven-metre penalty kicks. He also mentioned two legendary goalkeepers who have gone down in history as two of the best of all time: it took Samir Handanovic 35 matches to defend four eleven-metre shots in European Cups, and Gianluigi Buffon 60!
Let’s add that Matevž Vidovšek stopped Vladimir Weiss (Slovan Bratislava), Kiril Despodov (Ludogorets), Alexandru Tudorie and Marius Stefanescu (both Sepsis OSK) from white spot kicks in Europe.
