Mamardashvili beats a record at Valencia CF  

The Georgian player overtakes Ochotorena as the Valencia CF goalkeeper with the most consecutive games in LaLiga EA Sports (61)

Since his arrival at Valencia CF in 2021, Giorgi Mamardashvili has become an indispensable member of the Valencia CF line-up. The Georgian goalkeeper has accumulated 61 consecutive games as a starter in LaLiga EA Sports, a fact that means entering the history of Valencia CF.

With this record, Mamardashvili surpasses José Manuel Ochotorena (59), Valencia CF's current goalkeeping coach, as the Valencianista goalkeeper with the most consecutive games in LaLiga. A record not surpassed by anyone since the 1990-91 season. In the ranking are goalkeepers of the stature of Ochotorena (59), Sempere (54) and Cañizares (53).

Valencia Cf is one of the teams that concedes the fewest chances and, therefore, concedes the fewest goals (27) in the current LaLiga EA Sports season. As a result of the defensive work of the entire team and the great performances of Mamardashvili, the Valencian team has managed seven clean sheets (UD Las Palmas, Atlético de Madrid, Cádiz CF, Granada CF, RC Celta de Vigo, Rayo Vallecano and Athletic Club de Bilbao) in the 23 matches played in LaLiga. In addition, the Camp de Mestalla has become a fortress for the team coached by Rubén Baraja, and Valencia CF has been undefeated at Mestalla in LaLiga EA Sports for 7 matches without defeat since September 27, 2023. All this has taken the Valencianista team to seventh place in the table with 35 points.

On the other hand, the Valencianista goalkeeper is an international with the senior national team of Georgia after his time in the U-21 and U-17 youth categories. This season he has been called up and has been a starter in the qualifying matches for the 2024 European Championship, which have been played throughout 2023.

After the win against UD Almería at Mestalla, Valencia CF will be looking for another victory this coming Saturday, February 10 at 21:00 when they visit UD Las Palmas in the 24th matchday of the competition.
