Claudinho: Mini Scouting Report Image
Claudinho, who recently turned 24 is one of the most exciting players in Brazil.

His performances for Red Bull Bragantino during the 20/21 season earned him the Player Of The Season award!

He also won The Gold Ball (top scorer) and Revelation Of The Season. ImageImage
Claudinho, the captain at Bragantino, played 35 games last season, In which he scored 18 goals and laid on 6 assists.

On top of that, he’s very entertaining to watch!

Officially, Claudinho plays as a left-sided midfielder in a 4-3-3 but he drifts out wide to find space to receive the ball. ImageImage
Considering his 3.1 key passes/90mins (best in the league), I think he should’ve had a couple more assists.

This statement is backed up by his xA for the 2020/21 season. It was at an impressive 10.01! ImageImage
On the other hand, his finishing (18 goals) is either incredible or a bit lucky. His xG for the 2020 season was at 10 as well.

We have yet to find out since this is his first season in the Brasileirão since 2017, but 20 xG+xA along with 24 G+A is definitely impressive!
When looking at his actual goals, the negative xG-G (10-18) makes sense.
He’s not afraid of trying the difficult shots. Judging by the video evidence, I don’t think his finishing is lucky at all...

Looks like a player who will be outperforming his xG throughout his career with his incredible long shots.

His creative numbers speak for themselves, but they’ll certainly drop a bit if he goes to a better club where he won’t be the only star.
Like mentioned, RB Bragantino attack through Claudinho.

If he wants to succeed at a bigger and better club, he needs to be comfortable playing with other stars where he’ll have to share the spotlight.
I don’t like YouTube highlights but having watched some full games of Claudinho, I can promise you that he’s basically playing like a YouTube video!

Everything he does is a highlight!
If you read this far, I really appreciate it! Enjoy the video😊

Feedback is appreciated😁

I know #FCBayern love intensity and flow but it wouldn’t even hurt them if they drew more fouls.
#WestHam and #EintrachtFrankfurt are interesting cases because both teams are performing significantly better now compared to last season.

19/20 West Ham: 16th
20/21 West Ham: 5th after 28 games

19/20 Eintracht: 9th
