Pellegrini outperforms Kessie. What a great player for Roma!

Pellegrini - AS Roma

In the past transfer window, Roma almost closed a deal for Kessie but last-minute Milan snatched him up. Was this a fortune for the giallorossi?

Another great performance for Roma. The Lupi collected massive three points at San Siro Stadium against a Milan still work in progress. One of the positive notes of the night was definitely Lorenzo Pellegrini‘s performance. The Italian midfielder replaced Kevin Strootman during the first-half and impressed for his mobility and quality in moving the ball.

Pellegrini also outperformed the player who could have compromised his arrival in the Italian capital, Kessie. The Italian demonstrated his ductility and predisposition to offensive intrusions outperforming the midfielder from Ivory Coast.

The stats are clearly highlighting Pellegrini’s great impact on the match. Comparing his performance with that of Kessie we can even understand why yesterday’s final result between Milan and Roma was 0-2.

Kessie played 30′ minutes more than Pellegrini but the Italian midfielder managed to touch more balls (54 to 31) keeping a higher percentage of ball possession (3.8% against Kessie’s 2.1%).

36 overall passes for Pellegrini, a great accuracy 33 and a percentage of successful passages up to 92%. On the other side, Milan’s midfielder made 18 passes (14 accurate, percentage 78%).

Eusebio Di Francesco was pushing his managers to sign Lorenzo Pellegrini and now we all know that the Italian midfielder could be a great factor for Roma.
