Tuesday, July 14, 2020
Sampdoria and Cagliari take to the pitch tonight in Genoa, and with little to split the two sides, let’s dive deeper into the statistics on the two men protecting their respective goals.
The Blucerchiati have recorded three wins in their last four games, with this recent period practically dragging the side out of the relegation battle. Zenga’s team have meanwhile won just three points from their last four outings, having started on an incredible run but never really rediscovered their form after losing their way. For the statistical head-to-head on matchday 33 in Serie A, we’ve selected the two men holding the fort for each side to look at using the statistics section of our website: Emil Audero and Alessio Cragno.
The former Juve man has started every game this season, making 32 appearances with a total of 2,880 minutes played. Cragno however has only played ten games after a bad shoulder injury led him to miss a large chunk of the season.
Sampdoria’s shotstopper has been between the sticks for all 54 of the goals his side have let in, conceding a goal an average of every 53 minutes of play. His counterpart meanwhile has been on the pitch for just eleven of the 46 goals Cagliari have conceded, shipping one goal every 82 minutes on average.
Audero has made 96 saves, an average of exactly three per game, while Cragno holds a higher save rate with 3.63 per match (40 in total). The former has also made 14 punches and 14 catches off crosses, while Cragno statistics read seven and three in these areas.
Cagliari’s man in net hasn’t conceded any fouls, while Ranieri’s number 1 has made four fouls so far. In terms of bookings, only Audero’s name has gone down in the referee’s notebook with one yellow card.
