  25/04/2011: Clean Sheets Statistics
email print  
 
A clean sheet in football refers to a game in which one team prevents the opposing team from scoring.

Clean sheets are usually seen as a result of effective defensive play even though a weak -opposing offense may be as much to blame. Some credit individual players, particularly goalkeepers and defenders. It can be attributed to the whole team, the defense or just the goalkeeper when they play an entire match without conceding a goal.
 
The term first appeared in the 1930s. Sports reporters of the era used separate pieces of paper to record the different statistical details of a game. If one team did not allow a goal, then that team's "details of goals conceded" page would appear blank, leaving a clean sheet. Because association football is a relatively low-scoring game, it is common for one team, or even both teams, to score no goals.

For current season Lazio has made 14 clean sheets from 33 games, which are:

Chievo-Lazio 0:1, Lazio-Brescia 1:0, Bari-Lazio 0:2, Palermo-Lazio 0:1, Lazio-Napoli 2:0, Genoa-Lazio 0:0, Lazio-Sampdoria 1:0, Lazio-Fiorentina 2:0, AC Milan-Lazio 0:0, Brescia-Lazio 0:2, Lazio-Bari 1:0, Lazio-Palermo 2:0, Lazio-Cesena 1:0, Lazio-Parma 2:0
