Anthony lopes, 2ème gardien le plus utilisé d’Europe
According to CIES Football Observatory, OL's man between the sticks has played the second-most minutes among all keepers in Europe's Top 5 leagues over the past five years.

As he does week in and week out, Anthony Lopes put in another standout performance in goal for Olympique Lyonnais in Sunday's 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain. The Portuguese international has been the model of consistency over the years for Les Gones. In fact, according to CIES Football Observatory, Lyon's main man between the sticks has played 16,560 minutes in 184 matches since January 1, 2014, making him the second most used goalkeeper in the five major European leagues over the last five years. He's only surpassed in this category by Inter Milan's Samir Handanovic (17,010 minutes in 189 games).
