first_imgOnly two other footballers also managed to reach 35 km / h. The Uruguayan Fede Valverde (35.06), demonstrating his great physical power that has earned him a transcendental role in Real Madrid, and the swift Portuguese winger from Levante Hernani (35).Of the data provided by LaLiga, there are also three footballers who, a priori, were not listed as the fastest: Leganés midfielder Oscar Rodríguez (34.95 km / h); Villarreal defender Pau Torres (34.93) and Atlético midfielder Marcos Llorente (34.9).Aerial duels wonAnother statistic, that of the company Opta, in which there is a clear dominator, is that of the player who has won the most aerial duels. Spanish striker Joselu Mato is living a great moment at Alavés, being key in the direct game that Asier Garitano proposes, and he has won 217 disputes. With 126 stops, the Levante goalkeeper is living a dream season and comfortably leads this statistic of which he has been the owner since the beginning of the campaign. Manolo Reina (Mallorca), on his return to the First Division at 34 years old, occupies the second position with 90 interventions.The fastestAdrià Pedrosa has speed in his last name, shared, although without family kinship, with the motorcycle pilot Dani, two-time world champion of 250 cubic centimeters -2004 and 2005- and 125 cc -2003-. The versatile left wing player, who can play as a winger, winger or winger, He is the footballer who achieved the highest top speed in the 27 days played with 35.11 kilometers per hour. The second in this classification is a regular like Raúl García, always a fighter in aerial balls and divided, with 151, very far from the player of the Babazorro team. The 27 Conferences that could be played in LaLiga Santander before the suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic left us with curious statistics, beyond the goals and assists, led yet another year by the Argentine Leo Messi, as Adrià Pedrosa (Espanyol) being the fastest player in the competition and striker Jaime Mata (Getafe) as the player with the most fouls.The data provided by LaLiga on its website also highlights the Spanish goalkeeper Aitor Fernández (Levante), who numerically justifies the voices that asked for his debut in a call from Spain as he is the goalkeeper who has made the most stops (126) so far in the course.ScorersDespite missing five of the 27 games played, Messi leads, with 19, the classification of top scorers with a wide difference of five goals over the French Karim Benzema, its only competitor in this facet. To lead this statistic, he would surpass Zarra, a legend of Athletic Bilbao and the League, as the footballer with the most ‘Pichichi’ Trophies; both with six so far. Dani Parejo (1617), Toni Kroos (1608) and Ever Banega (1576) complete the ‘top 5’. Three names that are not surprising since they are the main managers of generating the offensive game in their respective teams.Fouls committedIn this statistical section, it would be normal to be in first position with a defender or a defensive midfielder, but It is striker Jaime Mata who leads it. The Getafe footballer has committed 67 offenses in LaLiga Santander, a fact that reflects the aggressive play style of coach José Bordalás. The attackers are the first to put pressure on the opponent and this, together with the large number of disputes in the air game in each game in which he has to fight, make Mata the most fouled player. In second position is, with eight, a Portuguese Cristian ‘Portu’ who has found in Real Sociedad an environment to continue growing after good seasons at Girona. Luis Suárez (Barcelona), Rodrigo (Valencia) and Roberto Torres (Osasuna) complete the ‘top 5′ with seven goal passes.RecoveriesThe Brazilian Carlos Henrique Casemiro has become a life insurance and fixed in the center of the field of Real Madrid for years. He is the one who destroys so that others can invent, and he does that work perfectly. So much so that the ’14’ of the white team leads the statistics of the most ball recoveries, with 53.center_img A Zarra whose name gives the award to the top national scorer. An award that has three equal Spanish as both Gerard Moreno (Villarreal), Lucas Pérez (Alavés) and Roger Martí (Levante) have managed to see the door eleven times.AssistsThe other great statistics of football is also led by Messi. The Barcelona footballer has distributed 12 assists so far this year, which makes him have participated directly in 31 goals in the 22 games he has played. A figure that once again reflects his level and the importance in the game of his own. A very tight classification in which closely follow the Spaniards Unai Bustinza (Leganés) and Kiko Olivas (Valladolid) and his compatriot Fernando (Seville), with 48 steals.PassesA statistic that perfectly reflects the style of play and who has the handle of each team. Two Barcelona footballers lead this section. Sergio Busquets has completed 1871 passes, while teammate Gerard Piqué is second with 1857. The Cameroonian Zambo Anguissa stands out among the first five. The midfielder arrived in summer at Villarreal on loan from Fulham, recently relegated to the English second division, as a defensive player, so fans of the classic club of the islands must be incredulous before the 60 dribbles he has done; ahead of players like Mikel Oyarzabal, Martin Odegaard or Lucas Ocampos.StopsWith the owner of the goal of the Spanish National Team in question, Aitor Fernández was running as one of the great candidates to be in Luis Enrique’s first call, after his convulsive return to the national bench, which should have occurred last Friday, but the coronavirus prevented it. DribblesAnother offensive statistic that Messi leads. And with a wide difference. The Argentinean has made 118 dribbles, well ahead of the second who is the Frenchman Nabil Fekir (Betis), which is demonstrating the great quality that was already evident in the French League.last_img
