Rui Patricio with only one clean sheet in Spain ahead of Real Sociedad return leg

Andy Mattioli

Rui Patricio made his debut in 2008 but to win a trophy he had to arrive at Roma, and lift last year’s Conference League, after reaching (in Europa League) the semifinals in 2011-12 with Sporting Lisbon and the quarterfinals in 2019-20 with Wolverhampton, writes Massimo Perrone in Il Corriere della Sera.

The Portuguese goal-keeper was eliminated on both occasions by Spanish teams, first Athletic Bilbao and then Sevilla.

His record with Spanish sides: 4 wins, 3 draws, 10 losses. Patricio failed to keep clean sheets when playing in Spain, excluding an Atletico Madrid-Sporting Lisbon scoreless draw.
