SERGIO RICO BREAKS CHAMPIONS LEAGUE APPEARANCE RECORD FOR GOALKEEPERS

He overtook Palop at Anfield in his 17th Champions League appearance

Sergio Rico keeps breaking records. At 24 years of age, 135 appearances made, and 2 UEFA Europa League titles, this Wednesday, the home-grown keeper played his 17th Champions League game, overtaking the 16 appearances of Andrés Palop, and breaking the record for Champions League appearances made by a Sevilla goalkeeper.

Rico, despite conceding two goals, was crucial in a dangerous first half which saw Liverpool dominate. With five saves, all equally impressive (perhaps none more so than to deny Mané who aimed to make it 3-1 before the break) the Sevilla keeper continued his impressive run of form which saw him put in another impressive perfomance against Getafe, where he rescued the side on a number of occasions with his sensational saves.
