Team of the Week – Serie A

Feb 28, 2020 | News, Team of the Week

This week’s Team of the Week is based on the Serie A because four Eredivisie matches were postponed. The squad includes the most goal-oriented players. Based on our scoring-statistics in round 23 of the Serie A, we selected the players with the most goal attempts per position.

Goal Attempt = any action with the intention to score a goal. If multiple players had the same number of attempts, the statistic Goals was decisive, and after that Attempts on Target. For the goalkeeper, we chose the one with the most Saves on Goal Attempts.

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.
