Andy Mattioli

After Rui Patricio and Tammy Abraham, Rick Karsdorp is Mourinho’s highest utilized player throughout this year’s campaign.

The flying Dutchman has recently picked up his form after an underwhelming stretch and his contribution to the team translated into two key assists against Vitesse in the Conference League and in the Derby della Capitale.

According to, the 27-year-old full-back is the defender with most big chances created in Serie A: a total of 8 big chances, 36 key passes and 4.16 xA in 28 league appearances.

This considerable offensive output and Roma’s scarce results highlight the team’s persistent problem of failing to capitalize in front of goal.
