Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti has proved to be a key player for the Italian national team over its current Euro 2020 run.
Verratti has earned starts in Italy’s last three matches in this tournament, which includes the key showing against Austria in the Round of 16.
PSG does not typically rely on the Italian midfielder to be its main on-ball playmaker, but with Italy, he has somehow emerged as the Azzurri’s go-to attacking catalyst.
As noted by WhoScored, Verratti has sported a keen 4.0 key passes per game average in Euro 2020, which leads all players in this tournament so far.
Whether in open play or on set-piece situations, Verratti simply continues to create key goal-scoring chances for teammates in Euro 2020.
The PSG midfielder will now have a massive test upcoming in the Euro 2020 semifinal round, where Italy will clash with Spain.
Verratti surely will look to put together a crucial performance in this upcoming knockout stage match.
