UEFA Save of the season shortlist revealed

joehart1.jpg

The Goal of the Season award might get the lion's share of the attention, but for all you fans who appreciate a good 0-0 stalemate as much as a goalfest, here's the shortlist for the UEFA Save of the Season award for 2014/15.

The usual suspects are there: Chelsea's Courtois, Bayern's Manuel Neuer and Juve's Gianluigi Buffon, but there's also appearances for two Danish keepers: Kasper Schmiechel and Jakob Busk.

If there's any justice, Joe Hart will win the award: while his individual save is good, but not amazing, it came as part of a match in which he almost single-handedly kept Manchester City away from a cricket-score defeat by Barcelona. Treat yourself and watch all of his saves here.

Take a look at the contenders below (UEFA annoyingly won't allow embedding so you'll need to click twice on each clip to view) and then get voting here.

Meanwhile, check out the Goal of the Season contenders here.
