Stephan El Shaarawy wins 6 duels, completes 6 ball recoveries in Milan match

Andy Mattioli

One of the unsung heroes of last night’s victory over Milan was Stephan El Shaarawy.

The Italian attacker was given the chance to feature from the start, but this time on the right hand side; a move that Daniele De Rossi came up with in order to limit the effectiveness of Rafael Leao and Theo Hernandez.

The decision proved of vital importance as Roma were able to maintain a solid defensive line against Milan’s attacking prowess.

El Shaarawy was one of the best players of the match and the statistics can back this up.

As revealed by AS Roma Data, El Shaarawy – along with Zeki Celik – contributed greatly to Roma’s defensive solidity: the 30-year-old won 6 duels, completed 6 ball recoveries and blocked 2 shots in total.
