Team of the Week #25

May 12, 2020 | News, Team of the Week

This week’s team contains the most reliable passers based on both build up-statistics in round 25 of the Eredivisie. We selected the players with the highest % completed passes in every position.

We applied a minimum number of passes for players to be included in the Team of the Week. For defenders this is 50 passes, for midfielders 40 passes, and for attackers 20 passes. The goalkeeper minimum is 10 passes. If two players had the same pass percentage, we picked the one with the highest number of passes.

ORTEC Sports Tactic Tree

The ORTEC Sports Team of the Week is released every Monday and will present the best performing players on a specific aspect of the Tactic Tree. The Tactic Tree is used to categorize statistics into the two main stages of a game: ‘being in possession’ and the counterpart ‘possession opponent’, both divided into 4 subcategories.

Every week we pick one statistic that is used in a subcategory and based on that statistic the best scoring players on each position will be presented in the team of the week.
