CL: Gabriela Moreschi transcended all other goalkeepers

SG BBM Bietigheim was a formidable challenger to the much more established teams in the Final four environment. No surprise, thought that the top goalkeeper belonged to the German champion – Gabriela Moreschi.

The statistical summary at EHF presents Moreschi as the keeper with most saves. As the trusted first choice in Bietigheim the 29-year-old received 681 shots and stopped 216 (31,7 percent).

Her closest competitors could both muster a higher percentage, Hatadou Sako with 208 saves (34,7) and Katrine Lunde with 190 (36,0).  

Yara Ten Holte of Odense HB had the highest percentage overall of the goalkeepers that played more than ten games, but also an internal duel with Althea Reinhardt for playing time. 

Moreschi also saved 18 penalties, meaning that one out of for seven meter attempts for the opponents landed in the hands of the keeper. The Brazilian profile leaves Bietigheim and joins CSM Bucharest next CL season.
