After Bayern München crowned themselves champions of the Bundesliga, we are now coming towards the end of the Spanish Primera Division. ORTEC Sports collected the best players from Spain (round #34), Italy (round #30) and England (round #33) based on specific statistics.

For this round, the Team of the Week consists of the most aggressive passers, based on our scoring-statistics. These are the players with the most goal attempts during the weekend.

– There is only one team with multiple (two) players in the team of the week: Juventus.

– The best scoring players this week are Lautaro Martínez of Inter Milan and Álex Berenguer of Torino, with 7 attempts each.

– Only one spot in the team is occupied by a La Liga player: Villareal goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo with 13 saves on goal attempts, blocking 69% of the total goal attempts made against him.

– We can also look at goal attempts on target. The right winger of the Team of the Week Willian Borges de Silva (Chelsea) scored highest with 3 attempts on target. He is joined in this score by the left winger Musa Juwara (Bologna FC) who did not make it in the team of the week.

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.
