Serie A Team of the Week: Lukaku lays waste to Lazio
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Romelu Lukaku leads the Serie A Team of the Week following his excellent performance for Inter at home to Lazio.Antonio Conte's men secured a vital 3-1 home victory which allowed them to leapfrog Milan into top spot in the table and into pole position to claim the Scudetto.Lukaku (8.4) played a part in all three goals, initially scoring from the penalty spot before earning his second with a flashed right-footed snapshot past the goalkeeper from the edge of the box which was only given after VAR Intervened.His best moment of the match was arguably his assist, though, as he showed devastating pace, power, and determination to barge down the right wing, leaving Marco Parolo for dead before setting up Lautaro Martinez for a tap in.Lorenzo Insigne (7.4) and Domenico Berardi (7.9) join the big Belgian in the front three after scoring for Napoli and Sassuolo respectively. The Napoli man converted from the penalty spot as the Partenopei defeated Juventus 1-0.Another Sassuolo player features in our XI in Manuel Locatelli (7.6), who completed 88/96 attempted passes and had more touches of the ball than any other player in this round of fixtures with 125.Jordan Veretout (7.8) scored two goals from midfield as Roma beat Udinese 3-0 with relative comfort.Making up the midfield three is Fiorentina's Erick Pulgar (7.7), who won an impressive 11/15 duels, albeit in defeat against Sampdoria.One of the most surprising results of the weekend saw Spezia defeat league leaders Milan 2-0. Simone Bastoni (7.7) scored one of the goals and slots in at left-back.Gianluca Mancini (8.1) and veteran defender Kamil Glik (8.0) feature in the centre of our defence.Berat Djimsiti (7.8) had 108 touches of the ball and completed 83/94 attempted passes for Atalanta.Napoli understandably had to weather a storm of sorts against Juve, but had Alex Meret (8.2) in goal to rely on as he made six saves to earn his clean sheet bonus.Serie A TEAM OF THE WEEK .

Who is fouled more – Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo?
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Over the years Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been compared by every attacking metric possible.From trophy hauls, to goals, to assists, their careers have been intrinsically linked since hitting the world stage in the noughties.When it comes to being fouled, though, Messi receives more rough treatment than Ronaldo, at least in most recent years.In the 2020/21 campaign in La Liga, Messi is fouled 2.8 times per game, while in Serie A Ronaldo is fouled just 1.4 times per game.One other statistic that needs to be looked at with this is how often the players dribble during a game, as this is usually what leads to fouls being committed by opposition players.In the Spanish top flight this season, Messi completes 4.5 dribbles per game while Ronaldo only completes 1.8, so we can hypothesise that the Argentine is directly involved in more fast-paced confrontations with opponents than Ronaldo, and so is more likely to be involved in a situation to actually be fouled. Messi v Ronaldo - FoulsMessiRonaldoMinutes played16721542Fouled P902.81.4Dribbles P904.51.8Duels Involved P9014.48.4Neither player is particularly close to being the most fouled player in their respective leagues, either.Nabil Fekir is the most fouled player in La Liga from players who have played 500 minutes or more with 3.6, while Josip Ilicic is the most fouled player in Serie A, earning 4.4 free-kicks per game.From the above table, we can also see that Messi is involved in a lot more duels than Ronaldo with 14.4 per game compared to 8.4 and so in every match he is involved more in situations where a foul could be possible.This could be attributed to Messi's tendency to come deep in his latter years to see more of the ball, while Ronaldo usually opts to stay away from build-up play for the most part to play as a penalty box striker. .

Inter 3-1 Lazio Player Ratings: Lukaku brilliance gives Nerazzurri huge win
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Inter took a massive step in the Serie A title race after Romelu Lukaku inspired them to a 3-1 home win over Lazio at San Siro. With Juventus and Milan dropping points the day prior, the onus was on Antonio Conte's side to win to move top of the table above their city rivals. And they duly delivered thanks to their Belgian forward. Inter 3-1 Lazio: Player Ratings, Match Stats, Player Stats✔️ GOOD PERFORMANCESergej Milinkovic-Savic: 7.1Despite Inter claiming the spoils here, Lazio can feel hard done by as they controlled the ball for long periods and had a harsh penalty given against them at 0-0. And Milinkovic-Savic did excellent things in the centre of the midfield, making over 70 passes at a 93% pass completion rate - the highest on the pitch. He won 2/2 tackles and made six ball recoveries as well. And it was his goal-bound free-kick that flicked off Gonzalo Escalante and flew into the net, giving Lazio the goal their play deserved, if not one that they could build on. ❌ BAD PERFORMANCEAchraf Hakimi: 5.8Within Antonio Conte's system there are games where Hakimi sees little of the ball in effective positions and this was one of those. The Moroccan wasn't able to impact the match in an offensive way, losing possession a hefty 18 times despite only having 43 touches of the ball throughout. He also won just 2/6 of his duels, as well as not putting a single cross into the area and having one touch inside the opposition box. A distinctly un-Hakimi like performance from the wing-back. ⭐ STAR MANRomelu Lukaku: 8.4This was one of those evenings where the dynamic Belgian was simply unplayable. After the harsh penalty award he stepped up to calmly open the scoring, slotting to the goalkeeper's left for a vital goal. And while the Lazio defence stopped expecting an offside, Lukaku played on and smashed his volley past Pepe Reina for 2-0. But he kept his best moment for the second half; with the match in the balance at 2-1, he left Marco Parolo for dust on the counterattack and slipped to his side to allow Lautaro Martinez the most straightforward task to roll into the net.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane continues to lead the charts for the most goals assisted in Europe's top five league's but now has a group in behind that includes the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Jack Grealish.Kane is now on 11 for the season, but actually hasn't recorded an assist in five games, which has allowed others to bridge the gap.Grealish earned an assist against West Ham last midweek, while Thomas Muller set up Kingsley Coman's winner for Bayern versus Hertha at the weekend.Kevin De Bruyne is still on contention, though is set to drift down the leaderboard in the coming weeks due to being absent with injury.Bruno Fernandes set up two goals in the huge win over Southampton a week ago to take his tally to nine for the campaign, just two behind the leader.Hakan Calhanoglu, Angel Di Maria, and Jonathan Bamba have made it on to the leaderboard with eight.There are no entries from La Liga on the leaderboard, as the top tallies from that league are just six assists, held by Iago Aspas, Nabil Fekir, Angel Correa, Marcos Llorente, and Jorge de Frutos.MOST ASSISTS, TOP FIVE LEAGUES 2020/21 2020/21 European Assist KingsPlayerTeamAssistsHarry KaneTottenham11Kevin De BruyneMan City10Jack GrealishAston Villa10Thomas MullerBayern10Joshua KimmichBayern10Bruno FernandesMan Utd9Kingsley ComanBayern9Henrikh MkhitaryanRoma8Hakan CalhanogluMilan8Jonas HofmannGladbach8Angel Di MariaPSG8Jonathan BambaLille8To calculate the 2020/21 European Assist King, we will focus on the top five leagues to keep things simple (for now) and track which players have provided the most assists in each respective league.

European Golden Shoe 2020/21: Ronaldo, Suarez, and Silva gain ground on Lewandowski
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Bayern won 1-0 versus Hertha at the weekend with the only goal of the game being scored by Kingsley Coman.Robert Lewandowski actually missed a penalty in that one and so failed to take the opportunity to add to his goalscoring tally for the season, which currently stands at 24.Even though he still holds a commanding lead, others were able to close the gap slightly, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Andre Silva, and Luis Suarez all getting on the scoresheet for their respective sides.Silva has now scored 17 for Eintracht Frankfurt this campaign, and currently represents the biggest threat to Lewandowski as the leader, even if the Portuguese forward is seven goals adrift.Genk's Paul Onuachu still finds himself high in the standings despite the disadvantage of the competition weighting.Ronaldo, Suarez, and Kylian Mbappe have all scored 16 goals so far this season and are on 32 points.There is a talented group on 28 points which includes Erling Haaland, Romelu Lukaku, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ciro Immobile, and Wout Weghorst.Mohamed Salah scored Liverpool's only goal of the game in the defeat versus Man City, and moves on to 15 strikes for the season.2020/21 EUROPEAN GOLDEN SHOE STANDINGS 2020/21 European Golden ShoeAt this stage of the season, the leagues that run on the calendar year - ie 2020 - inevitably get a head start but these days with the league weightings, very few are still there by the end of the traditional 2020/21 campaign. A reminder: The five elite leagues - Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 - all carry a weighting of 2, meaning that a player will be awarded two points for every goal they score in these competitions. For the leagues ranked sixth to 30 in Uefa's coefficients rankings goals scored are given a weighting of 1.5, and goals scored in a league outwith the top 30, goals are given a weighting of 1.

Serie A Team of the Week – Milan stars fire as title challenge continues
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Milan continued their charge towards the Serie A title with a convincing 4-0 win over lowly Crotone at the weekend and dominate FC’s Serie A Team of the Week for Gameweek 21.The victory was thanks largely to Ante Rebic (8.7) who netted twice to round off the result after Zlatan Ibrahimovic had scored a brace earlier.The Croatian created a big chance and had seven touches inside Crotone’s box, a number bettered only by teammate Rafael Leao, and had now doubled his season’s goal tally. Musa Barrow (9.1) also had himself a double and is the highest rated player of the week, dragging Bologna to a 3-0 win over Parma. The Gambian had 90% passing accuracy which was tied for the most for his team and lost possession just 11 times overall, scoring with 100% accuracy from his two shots. Goran Pandev (8.7) rounds out the front three with another brace, this time in a shock win for Genoa as they triumphed 2-1 against Napoli. That was achieved in just 68 minutes as the evergreen 37-year-old also added a team-high three dribbles and four touches in the Napoli box in a match-winning performance. Hakan Calhanoglu’s (8.5) two assists and two big chances created earned him a place in midfield alongside Inter duo Marcelo Brozovic (8.2) and Nicolo Barella (7.9).Barella scored the first in Inter’s 2-0 defeat of Fiorentina, also creating a big chance, while Brozovic had a game-high 96 passes on 93% accuracy, with 28 of them going into the final third. Despite Napoli’s defeat, Giovanni Di Lorenzo (8.1) takes a place at right-back, leading all players with 30 passes into the final third and five crosses. Udinese hit a late double to defeat Verona 2-0, with the defence holding on thanks largely to Bram Nuytinck (7.8) who won four aerial duels, six total duels and made four clearances. Next to him is Francesco Acerbi (7.3) who led Lazio to a clean sheet, topping all players with 87 passes on 92% completion in the 1-0 win over Cagliari. Theo Hernandez (8.2) completed the most dribbles in Milan’s win with five, created a big chance with one of his five crosses to assist Zlatan for his second and was the clear choice at left-back as he continues his brilliant Serie A campaign. And rounding out the team, Mattia Perin (8.3) earns the place in between the sticks after his eight saves helped Genoa hold on for the win against Napoli, despite a late concession to Matteo Politano. .

Juventus 2-0 Roma: Player Ratings – Ronaldo opener secures victory as Pirlo’s side go six unbeaten
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Cristiano Ronaldo, one day after turning 36, once again proved vital for Juventus, as his opener secured a 2-0 win against Roma.Ronaldo's early strike was expertly-taken and set his side on their way to another victory under Andrea Pirlo, whose side are now six games unbeaten in all competitions.Juventus v Roma: Player Ratings, Match Stats, Player StatsSo which players stood out most in this Derby d'Italia?✔️ GOOD PERFORMANCEGiorgio Chiellini: 7.1It's been a return to form for the grizzled veteran of the Juve rearguard. Chiellini has played four consecutive games in Serie A for the first time in over two years, and is playing as well as ever.The 36-year-old dominated from the start, and offered Roma striker Borja Mayoral no breathing space in the Juve penalty box. Furthermore, Chiellini instigated many of Juve's attacks, with the defender completing 82 passes, six of which were long balls, and five of which were sent into the final third.The Bianconeri will be hoping that their legendary Italian defender will remain fit until the end of the season.❌ BAD PERFORMANCEWeston McKennie: 5.3The Texan has been one of Juve's standout performers this season, however this game will not go down as one of his finest in a Bianconeri shirt.Whilst McKennie played with his usual relentless energy and willingness to get stuck into challenges, he saw very little of the ball, and was unusually sloppy when he did get it.The American only completed 16 passes, whilst only touching the ball some 19 times in his 65 minutes on the pitch. It's not a display he's likely to remember.⭐ STAR MANCristiano Ronaldo: 6.8The Portuguese superstar celebrated his 36th birthday only yesterday, but remains as deadly as ever.His early strike set Juve on their way to victory, and Ronaldo was a constant menace throughout the game. The Roma backline were terrified of the damage Ronaldo could do, given space.His mere presence took several defenders with him, leaving space for the likes of Alvaro Morata and Dejan Kulusevski to exploit.His goal was expertly-taken, and whilst not his cleanest strike, it still nestled into the bottom of Pau Lopez's corner all the same.Ronaldo's strike now means he's tied with the legendary Frenchman Michel Platini on 68 goals for the club.Juventus v Roma: Player Ratings, Match Stats, Player Stats .
