Lopetegui building one on La Liga’s toughest defences:
There was a lot of talk surrounding Sevilla’s defence this summer, but it wasn’t positive, as many were expecting Jules Kounde to leave for the Premier League. But the Frenchman ultimately remained and has been part of a defence that has conceded just two goals in their opening five matches, remaining unbeaten in the league.
Sevilla stand alone as the best defence in La Liga right now, and it’s not just down to misfiring opposition attackers. Julen Lopetegui’s side are starving their opponents of chances, with Sevilla’s Expected Goals Conceded (3.22) the best in the league while their Expected Goals on Target Conceded (3.09) is second only to Athletic Bilbao’s 2.87.
But when they do get a chance, Bono has been their saving grace, shot nine of the 11 shots on target he has faced, for a save percentage of 81.82%. Across La Liga, only Marko Dmitrovic (three from three) has a better percentage than Bono, but he is the Moroccan’s back-up at Sevilla.
As a result, Sevilla currently sit fourth in La Liga, just five points behind early leaders Real Madrid having played one game fewer.
