Neto falls short of record

Neto lost out on the chance to set a new club record with Fiorentina for minutes played without conceding on Sunday.

Before conceding Alberto Gilardino’s penalty 27 minutes into Week 21’s thrilling 3-3 draw with Genoa, the Brazilian had gone exactly 500 minutes since last conceding for La Viola.

That first goal yesterday ended a run stretching back to December 8, and has seen the 24-year-old fall just short of a new club record.

Enrico Albertosi’s 529 minute run set during the 1965-66 campaign remains the longest shutout set in Serie A by a Fiorentina goalkeeper.

Serie A’s all-time run without conceding remains Sebastiano Rossi’s 929 minutes set between the sticks for Milan between 1993 and 1994.
