Borussia Mönchengladbach: Surprising facts about Jonas Omlin

Jonas Omlin: settling in as Gladbach’s number one

After struggling with adductor problems, Jonas Omlin, 29, demonstrated his resilience once again as he passed Stranzl’s endurance test in the 2-2 tie against Werder Bremen last Friday. He then left for the Swiss national team on Sunday, joining Jérémy Frick, who was called up for the first time. Omlin is set as the Swiss team’s number two to replace former Gladbach keeper Yann Sommer, who is now 34.

It is likely that Omlin will be used in the upcoming games against Belarus and Israel, as Borussia’s number one remains as a strong candidate for selection. Initially, it was quite challenging for Omlin to follow in the significant footsteps of Yann Sommer, who left for former club FC Basel, as the fans were undoubtedly looking forward to see what he had to offer. However, he has quickly settled in and has become a regular hero.

A look at the stats show that Omlin’s performances have been superb. With 14 goals conceded in his previous eight games — equivalent to a goal every 47.21 minutes, Omlin takes a lower place in the league in terms of minutes per goal conceded, with Oliver Christensen, Jiri Pavlenko, Manuel Riemann, and Alexander Schwolow having worse values. Leader Schalke keeper Ralf Fährmann has been conquered only every 180 minutes, which is one reason why Schalke is still unbeaten in the second half of the season.

In another interesting statistic, Omlin has only saved 54.84 percent of the 31 shots fired, putting him in the last place among the regular keepers. Fährmann, on the other hand, leads the list with 86.67 percent, followed by Frederik Rönnow with 79.52 percent. Surprisingly, all of Gladbach’s keepers (including Omlin’s predecessors) have had better values. Yann Sommer held on to 71.72 percent of balls, while Jan Olschowsky had a 71.42 percent success rate. Even veteran Tobias Sippel was more successful than Gladbach’s new number one, with a 63.64 percent success rate.

Despite having a few areas to work on, Omlin has still displayed steady progress and remarkable talent on the pitch. His excellent performances have won him numerous accolades from loyal fans and supporters alike, and he remains optimistic about his future with Gladbach.
