Juventus club record signing Cristiano Ronaldo has been snubbed for the best Serie A XI this season, based on data from the CIES Football Observatory.
Ronaldo, 34, has been one of Juventus’ main attacking outlets this season with 19 goals and 10 assists in 26 league encounters within his debut season in the Italian top-flight.
However, according to the latest data released from the CIES Football Observatory – who has developed a unique algorithm to measure the technical performance of players based on on-field statistics, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has been outperformed in 2019.
Only taking into account players fielded for at least 630 minutes since January 1, the research has produced starting line-ups for Serie A, in which 36-year-old Fabio Quagliarella, who has scored 21 league goals this season, is amongst.
