The LTL Number Crunch: Stuani – La Liga’s Ultimate One Man Team?

In a previous post on Leading the Line we looked at how a missing Iago Aspas was impacting on a struggling Celta Vigo side. But the Galician Gazelle isn’t the only contender for La Liga’s most crucial player. At Girona, where they have now not won in ten La Liga games (nine at time of data compilation) Uruguayan striker Cristhian Stuani has been responsible for more than half of all his side’s goals this season. But what impact have these goals had? Have they mattered, and where would the Catalan side be without them?


Note: This data was first compiled at the end of Gameweek 22. In Gameweek 23 Girona continued their winless run with a 2-0 home defeat to bottom side Huesca. Unsurprisingly, given the scoreline, neither Cristhian Stuani or any of his team mates scored.
