Real Madrid's Keylor Navas passes Edwin van der Sar's UCL shutout mark

The ESPN FC crew break down Real Madrid's UCL win over Roma stating that Roma were unable to finish their chances.

Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas kept an eighth successive Champions League clean sheet to move ahead of Edwin van der Sar and claim the second-longest run without conceding a goal in the competition.

Navas is unbeaten in 540 minutes after his side's 2-0 win against Roma at the Bernabeu on Tuesday sealed a 4-0 aggregate victory over the Serie A side.

The 29-year-old Costa Rica international made his Champions League debut for Madrid against Basel in November 2014.

And his latest clean sheet took him past the 657 unbeaten minutes achieved during the 1995-96 season by Van der Sar, who was then playing for Ajax.

The all-time record holder, former Germany goalkeeper Jens Lehmann, went 853 minutes without conceding as Arsenal reached the 2006 Champions League final.

Navas told reporters: "I always try to do my work as best as possible and improve.

"My teammates help me out, and things are going well for me. When I needed to intervene, I was able to stop a few chances from Roma. This makes me very happy and motivates me to keep working."

The Madrid defence struggled to deal with the pace of winger Mohamed Salah, while Alessandro Florenzi and Edin Dzeko also forced saves from Navas.

The goalkeeper added: "It was a proper game -- we had to suffer at the start as they did well.

"But in the end we were able to sort it out. When we went on the attack we found it difficult to get quickly organised. It must be corrected."
