Oblak has experienced a brilliant spell under Diego Simeone’s tutelage over the past few years since arriving at the Spanish capital from Benfica in the summer of 2014. The Slovenia international has made an impressive start to this campaign after securing two clean sheets from the opening three fixtures of this La Liga season.
Jan Oblak Vs David De Gea: Who Is Better?
The Slovenia international featured in 44 matches for Atletico Madrid last season, conceding 34 goals while keeping 24 shut outs across multiple competitions. The 26-year-old has also managed to earn 22 international caps for Slovenia thus far.
Comparatively, De Gea has endured a dip in form over the past couple of seasons. The Spanish keeper managed to earn ten clean sheets in 45 appearances for the Red Devils last season while conceding 60 goals on all fronts. The Man United keeper made a high-profile error against Crystal Palace last month when he failed to stop Patrick van Aanholt’s powerful shot. As a result, the Mancunian outfit lost the game in the dying embers of the encounter. Thus, it’s safe to assume that Oblak has the edge over De Gea based on their current form.
