Cengiz Under Inaccurate but Always Dangerous (Stats)

The Turk pushes hard on the right flank properly supported by Florenzi. But his offensive efforts are thwarted by a lack of accuracy.

Roma snatched three important points from Torino in the first Serie A match of the 2018-19 season. The giallorossi suffered the pressure of the granata in the first half and after a catastrophic start of the second 45 minutes had the possibility to react.

Although Di Francesco‘s men seemed a little tired and lacking a proper physical condition, the best player of the first 45 minutes has been Cengiz Under.

The Turkish talent is a real gem, a player that EDF is tactically refining to convert in a diamond.  When the giallorossi were suffering the reactivity and fury of Torino, Cengiz Under was the only player on the field able to put Mazzari‘s backline in danger.

His speed and desire to make an impact on the match is always remarkable. Yesterday, the partnership Under-Florenzi worked properly. Their offensive propulsions gave the Roma backline a much-needed relief.

At the Stadio Grande Torino, Cengiz Under was inaccurate but always dangerous. He made 30 passes but only 60% of them were successful. The Turk loves to move the ball forward interacting with his teammates with short-passes (26) and being able to trigger his sudden sprint.

In the past 12 months, his game vision has improved. Di Francesco has been pushing the young winger to help on the defensive phase as well. The Turkey international is absorbing the lessons and yesterday he made 6 recoveries.
