The ace of Spineless Wolves who lost 13 duels total disappointed Nuno against Olympiacos – opinion

Array

Before the game, Nuno Espirito Santo may have drawn 1-1 against home in the first leg of the Europa League clash against Olympiacos.

After all, it would mean that his team had achieved the all-important away goal and could return to Molineux with the advantage. But after the way the game left the stage, the Portuguese man would surely have been bitterly disappointed with the result.

After seeing Olympiacos central defender Ruben Semedo receive a red card for a professional foul after just 28 minutes of play, Wolves had the perfect opportunity to really establish a good first leg first leg to take home.

Instead, they only had to settle for 1-1. And while it may have been the man who caused Semedo to be sent when he was shot down, Diogo Jota had a bad game for Wolves.

According to Sofascore, the 6.2 score of the Portuguese ace was the second worst of all the players on the field – in fact, only Semedo received a lower score. And when you look at the numbers behind his performance, it’s easy to see why.

Games away from home desperately need players to step forward and be counted. Winning the 50s and 50s and physical battles can go a long way in ensuring that your team can silence the home crowd and even get involved. Instead, Jota fought hard in an attempt to impose himself, losing 13 of his 17 total duels – he only won two out of 12 that were contested on the ground.

Where is he from?! Can you indicate which dark countries these famous players represented?

He also failed to complete any of the four dribbles he attempted, did not shoot on goal, made only 19 accurate passes and lost possession 15 times – the last statistic being the second worst of any Wolves player (only Adama Traore conceded the ball several times).

It was the type of display without rotation that disappointed Nuno badly. This was a great opportunity for Jota to really take the neck wake game after doing well to help the Wolves get a man’s lead. But in the end, he struggled to really make it count.

In the meantime, wolves swooping for this Real Madrid star would be a perfect lesson.
