Cavani and Valencia CF: How to Properly Analyse Strikers
La Liga Analysis

Cavani and Valencia CF: How to Properly Analyse Strikers I firmly believe it doesn’t take more than common sense to agree that to evaluate the performance of strikers, one must be careful: they depend on the team to do their job. A goalkeeper can overperform whether the team does well, or save them from a disaster. At times, their profession almost feels like a tennis player when their team ‘maroons’ them to play on their own. Yesterday, I saw a perfect example of that. I found several examples in the press of journalists criticizing the performance of Cavani yesterday when Valencia lost 2-0 t ..read more

Barcelona signed Ferran Torres in the 2021 winter transfer window from Manchester City. The 22-year-old has produced some good performances for his national team and is the first-choice right-winger for Spain under Luis Enrique. However, he has not managed to produce the same form while playing for Barcelona. While he has performed admirably when playing in his preferred right-wing position, he has yet to deliver the end product that one would expect from a Barcelona winger. Now with Ousmane Dembele injured and Raphinha out of form, the pressure on the youngster only increases by the day. Ther ..read more
