Over the five European top leagues looking at include Eden Hazard and Mousa Dembélé the best player who loves to dribble in Europe. As appears from statistics of the CIES Football Observatory.

The international engineering consultancy, is based on figures from OptaPro, that both the number of what about spot’s per 90 minutes as the percentage of successful what about spot’s tracks in the five European top leagues (France, Italy, Spain, Germany, England). And guess what: the Belgians to score well.

Eden Hazard shines even all the way at the top of the ranking as “king of the dribble’. For Neymar Jr and Lionel Messi. That he has mainly to its higher success rate. Neymar (7,3 per match) performs more what about spot’s from our captain of the Red Devils (or 6.4 per match), but on the other hand are also more failed what about spot’s. The success rate of the Brazilian stranded on 62 percent, just like Messi, by the way, while Hazard 75 percent.

The primus at that level is, however, another Belgian: Mousa Dembélé. That succeeds as in 88 percent of his dribbelpogingen. Unlikely high. Already relativizes the CIES figures also, however, by stating that midfielders anyway higher score on that slaagpercentages because they are more frequently what about spot’s run away from the goal. This is in contrast to attackers actions in the danger zone need to create. Dembélé, these days bloedvorm, is on the fifth place in the ranking of best player who loves to dribble. In the top 100 that OptaPro synthesized two Belgian names: Radja Nainggolan (place 57) and Kevin De Bruyne (98).

What is also striking is the high number of Frenchmen, and players from the French league, which, according to structural engineers CIES points to the excellent technical training of the French clubs.
