Yacine Adli has impressed since he got the chance from start against Cagliari in the No.6 role. Against Lazio last night, he was heavily involved the first and the numbers back up his successful start.
It’s clear to everyone that the Frenchman is a more attacking-minded No.6, but even so he has been decent in the defensive phase. His strengths lie in attack, though, and he showed this against both Cagliari and Lazio.
As highlighted by Scout7Calcio on Twitter, Adli has already got into Milan’s top five for passes into the final third. One good example from last night was the first goal, when he found Tijjani Reijnders between the lines, who then found Rafael Leao.

The standout player from the graphic, though, is Reijnders who ranks extremely high both on passes into the final third and progression passes. Malick Thiaw has also done very well on this front, which deserves recognition.
