Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto was arguably the team’s most reliable and proficient playmaker in Serie A this year. Although he has struggled to mount up key goal-scoring chances in league play this season, one can not forget his astounding 15 assists number last season.
Overall, Alberto was also among the most consistent goal-scoring chance creators in the league this year. As pointed out by Opta, Alberto’s 194 open play shot-ending sequences in Serie A this year ranked fourth behind the likes of Napoli’s Lorenzo Insigne’s (225) and Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo (210).

While Alberto is off to a noticeable slow start in Serie A this season, he is one player who can turn the tide with a quality run of performances.
