Who should defend the PSG posts between Donnarumma and Navas? The answer from the updated FIFA 22 database is this.
He should have rested after the period out due to Covid but the positivity of Keylor Navas led him to work overtime. And so Gigio Donnarumma was regularly (more or less …) in goal in PSG’s 2-0 win against Brest. The national team goalkeeper was once again decisive with a prodigious intervention, who once again raises the question that is marking the season of the French behind them: it is right that Pochettino continually alternates it with Navas, without assigning it an ownership that proves to deserve each call?
Space Navas … –
For a comparison “on paper”, we asked FIFA 22, the latest chapter of the EA Sports football series that boasts a very up-to-date and reliable database with the ratings of players around the world. It would be unfair to underestimate the work of Navas in recent years, between Real Madrid (where he has won everything, several times) and PSG, only by patriotic instinct, and in this sense the objective evaluation on FIFA comes to our rescue. The Puerto Rican scores a overall score of 88, which shows no sign of decreasing despite the now advanced age (34 years) and is in any case higher than the average for Parisians (86). Reflexes and dive 89, placement 87, reactivity 85 and grip 84 his best individual parameters. In short, beyond the value of man in the locker room, even from a technical point of view we understand Pochettino’s indecision.
… But the Donnarumma check –
But, after the extraordinary year at Milan that allowed the Rossoneri to regain the much-coveted Champions League area and the victory at the European Championships (where he was awarded as the best player ever), it is predictably Donnarumma to win head-to-head with the his fellow-rival. The ’99 class is not only superior even to the photo finish in Navas, but he is also the fourth strongest player of Paris Saint-Germain, behind only the trident of wonders, and of the entire FIFA 22 thanks to an overall from 89 which makes him the third best youngster, the fourth best goalkeeper and the twelfth best footballer (in cohabitation with ten others, including people like Alisson, Courtois, Salah and Benzema). The dive from 91 is his predominant statistic, with reflexes 90, placement and reactivity of 85, taken by 83 and returning from 79 (against the 75 of Navas, proving how the Italian plays better with his feet). The age is also his own: at 22, he still has the possibility of reaching a potential of 93 and, taken on a free transfer, is worth € 119.5 million. In short, deploying him as a starter doesn’t seem like a big gamble …
