Marco Canoniero /

The Italian defender played higher than Karsdorp against Hellas Verona. Mancini scored the opener and almost man-marked the talented Zaccagni.

By analyzing the post-match statistics you can discover interesting things. At times, you can even find confirmation of what was seen on the pitch during the 90 minutes.

Although the performance of offensive players may be more attractive due to the excellent technique of strikers and attacking midfielders, Gianluca Mancini deserves a special mention for his remarkable show against Hellas Verona.

The Italian defender almost man-marked the talented Mattia Zaccagni limiting his offensive efficacy. By analyzing the average position of the players on the pitch, Mancini played higher than Karsdorp throughout the 90 minutes.

While Leonardo Spinazzola pushed forward from the left flank supporting Mkhitaryan in his offensive efforts, the Dutchman wonderfully helped the defensive line as well. Zaccagni, a player with superior technique and creativity, was supposed to put him in trouble. But Mancini’s ability to move forward in search of the young Italian talent has definitely changed the cards on the table.
