Statistical head-to-head for matchday 27 in Serie A: Francesco Caputo vs Kevin Lasagna

Sassuolo vs Hellas Verona, a matchday 27 clash in Serie A, is set for Saturday afternoon in Reggio Emilia, at 15:00 CET. In the table there are only two points separating the sides, with Juric’s men in eighth place on 38 points and De Zerbi’s Neroverdi are ninth, on 36 points. It is important to point out that Sassuolo have played one fewer game than their opponents.

The statistical head-to-head for matchday 27 (made possible by the stats section on our website, Figc.it) sees Francesco Caputo come up against Kevin Lasagna.

The former Udinese man has played four more times than his opponent so far (24 vs 20), for a total of 1,619 minutes played, compared to 1,452 for Caputo. Regarding games played as a starter, Lasagna again holds the slight majority (18 vs 17).

We begin with their offensive output, where Caputo has proved more effective in several key areas. The Sassuolo striker boasts eight more goals (11 vs 3) and three more assists (4 vs 1), as well as a better average-time-per-goal, one goal every 132 minutes, compared to one every 539.7 minutes for the 28-year-old from Lombardy. The latter, however, excels in successful crosses (4 vs 0), opportunities created (12 vs 6) and successful dribbles (9 vs 5).

Both players are often caught offside (18 times each).

Despite determination and spirit of sacrifice being two characteristics that unite the two players, when looking at defensive statistics the head-to-head leans heavily towards Lasagna, especially in regard to defensive blocks (12 vs 3) and interceptions (6 vs 1).

In terms of play-building, the 33-year-old from Altamura is more effective: 36 more completed passes (249 vs 213) and a greater passing accuracy both normally (77.6% vs 72.2%) as well as in the opposition half (73.9% vs 65.5%).

Finally, on a disciplinary level, “Ciccio” makes less fouls than his opponent (13 fouls made vs 30) and he is more targeted (23 fouls won vs 18). Both players have received one yellow card and neither has been sent off.
