Empoli’s Dragowski sets Serie A record with clean sheet despite facing 47 Atalanta shots
Atalanta failed to score against Empoli in Serie A on Monday despite recording an incredible 47 shots on Bartlomiej Dragowski’s goal.
Dragowski’s 17 saves during the 0-0 draw in Bergamo was the most in a Serie A game since 2004-05, when Opta started recording such data.
Atalanta launched a barrage of efforts on Empoli’s goal, with captain Alejandro Gomez having nine efforts, Josip Ilicic eight and Duvan Zapata seven.
Dragowski has started eight matches for the Serie A club this season, having joined on loan from Fiorentina.
The Polish U-21 international has made nine total appearances for Fiorentina since joining in 2016 from Jagiellonia Białystok in his native Poland.
For Atalanta there was a sharp contrast with a 4-1 home win over Bologna earlier this month, when they became the first Serie A team to score four goals in the opening 15 minutes of a match since 1932.
