The football world may have been stagnant due to the Coron virus pandemic, but they are not stopping the rumors of shifting in its usual way, with Sevilla’s Diego Carlos being permanently named.

A Brazilian center-back was hired last year from Nantes for a $ 5 million contract, the 27-year-old is enjoying a great start to Laliga, quickly establishing himself as a fan favorite and an important member of Julen Lopetegui’s team, who finished third. In the red carpet.

An impressive physical specimen, athletic and comfortable with the ball on his feet, Diego Carlos was most closely associated with Liverpool – Jurgen Klopp is said to be a big fan and has clearly identified him as a potential partner for Virgil van Dijk.

But Barcelona and Real Madrid have also been praised, with Laliga being able to see him up close.

With the M75 million release, Diego Carlos certainly won’t come at a low price – but we’ve tested Opter Data to compare it with 16 of Europe’s best center-backs …

Hollywood Pass

Sevilla playing Diego Carlos is quite evident, as it is not surprising to see him play the long part of his pass (229) – only Van Dijk (25), Leonardo Bonucci (23) and Mats Hummels (235) are among our selected group. Tried more.

Undoubtedly affecting 83 percent of his overall pass accuracy, this is the worst of the 17 players. However, Sergio Ramos has attempted just under 10 passing passes, yet his overall completion rate is significantly better at 91 percent.

His accuracy is even more overwhelming in the opposition’s half as compared to Ramos and Clement Langel’s, as it has dropped by as much as 8 percent. Nevertheless, Sevilla’s vertical style games are significantly different than Real Madrid’s and especially Barcelona’s setups, though the data doesn’t take into account how difficult each pass was.

Regular Sevilla watchers will tell you that Diego Carlos has a knack for catchy cross-field passes, but the data doesn’t lie – many don’t reach their goals.

Only 1 percent of his longtime pass finds a teammate, which is again the worst among analysts. This raises the question of whether such a direct system would fit Diego Carlos’s specifications.

He is less at risk of delivering the ball when it comes to short deliveries – as you would expect most players – since he has a Sevilla player that has 90 percent passing but only Harry Maguire (89 percent) has a lower record. ).

Miscellaneous for a hardship

Don’t let his clean, well-coffered exterior fool you – one thing certainly can’t be blamed for Diego Carlos. He has been involved in only 19 matches this season, with Maguire (277), Van Dijk (277), Ramos (20) and Mats Hummels (25) recording more from our selected group.

In this conflict, however, the Brazilian success rate is accommodating 5%. Van Dijk goes this route and comes up 75 percent of the time in such a national situation.

However Diego Carlos has been successful 19 times with 30 tries and has been good enough to deal with. This gives him a success rate of 63%, compared to six in this selected group, including Van Dijk (5 percent) and Ramos (2 percent).

Diego Carlos is almost never past, there are only eight instances of the term. Six of the selected group have a better record, though three of them are above seven and only one – Leonardo Bonucci (two) – has been defeated less than six times.

Get rid of

Clearance metric is where Diego Carlos performs best. He has found himself in the right position to meet the odds 128 times in 20198, the third best among Laliga defenders.

While it’s good to think that you can’t find yourself in defensive situations like Barcelona, ​​Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and others, Van Dijk (১৩৫) and Maguire (42) often have better records in the region than just our group.

The Manchester United captain is a bit behind the 9-run, but Diego Carlos’ 29 interceptions are even more shameful than Mozuri’s 3 as he is leading the league in scoring.

Although Diego Carlos still needs to say that his playing fields can be improved, it should be emphasized that some data points are reflected – or greatly influenced by the team – in the team’s setup.

Although the precision of Diego Carlos’ long pass – a feature of Sevilla’s direct system – leaves a mark against his name as an inside and outside defender here, he is not shy when he is considered the most when compared to a center-back team, given that. An admirable honor is only his fourth season in one of Europe’s top-five leagues May.

Defenders in the selection team include: Virgil van Dijk, Harry Maguire, Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique, Clement Lengelt, Rafael Verne, Pringle Kimpbe, Marcuinhos, Davit Submancello, Benjamin Poward, Mats Hummels, Manuel MacNeil, Anjoule Munkel Anjlan. Cauliflower
