In Friday night's German Bundesliga action, Eintracht Frankfurt ran out 3-0 winners over Leverkusen. Goncalo Pacienca will probably take most of the plaudits as he scored two in the win, with Bas Dost netting the other, but they have their goalkeeper to thank for the clean sheet.

The scoreline suggests it was a comfortable three points for the hosts, but it was anything but, as if they didn't have Frederik Ronnow between the posts they would have conceded more than one.

Leverkusen successfully made 10 shots on target in the game, but each and every one was saved by the Dane, who earned his clean sheet.

Remarkably, this is his first Bundesliga appearance of the season as he is usually the understudy to Kevin Trapp, who will be out until 2020 after suffering a shoulder injury.

He also made 11 separate interceptions, solidifying his status as the scourge of Leverkusen's evening.
