Arturo Vidal reaches perfection in the Libertadores

Written by ebookingservices

Arturo Vidal played 32 perfect minutes in the total series that Flamengo beat Corinthians in the 2022 Copa Libertadores. The reason? The ‘King’ did not miss any of the passes he attempted against ‘Timao’ both in Sao Paulo as in Rio de Janeiro.

According to data from Opta, Vidal hit the 53 passes he played in the two games. And as if that were not enough, he is the only player in the tournament to repeat games with 100% effectiveness, having attempted more than 20 passes. One more madness of the Chilean.

The data that highlights Arturo Vidal in the Copa Libertadores

In the first leg he entered the game after 73 minutes and played in a great way, even having a clear goal chance. In the retaliation played in the Maracana, his job was mostly to circulate the ball, although he managed to almost deliver an assist. It was not consummated because Gabriel Barbosa missed his shot.

“Things are going very well since I arrived”he said on ESPN post game. Numbers couldn’t be more literal.
