22-Year-Old Defender Bayern Munich Bundesliga
Alaba was a key man in defense Tuesday as Bayern Munich drew 0-0 with Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League second round.
Alaba kept a third consecutive clean sheet, after having not conceded in Bayern's last two Bundesliga games. He was a vital part of his team's defense, making some crucial blocks and looking composed throughout. The Bayern backline was so solid that they only let in one shot all game.
