Neymar Has Been the Best Dribbler in Europe This Season According to One Key Stat

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is used to fooling defenders with his on-ball dribbling prowess. He can beat defenders with his shifty on-ball movements or simply speed on by multiple players.

Neymar is currently having yet another stout campaign as a dribbler. He leads Ligue 1 this season in successful dribbles completed per game with a 5.7 average. This number is slightly down from his 6.0 average last season, but it is still a stat to be impressed by.

Overall, the Brazilian forward has been among the more efficient dribblers in the continent this season. In Ligue 1 play this season, he ranks first in successful dribbles per 90 among qualified players (500 minutes played) with a 6.3 figure, according to WhoScored.

Behind the Brazilian in this stat is Wolverhampton’s Adama Traore (5.4) and Atalanta’s Josip Illicic (5.2).

The Brazilian sure is one of the best dribblers of this era.
