Calendar 4th October

Arrow down

Tonali has averaged 1.67 fouls/90 and has already been booked 3 times during his short tenure at Newcastle.

Joelinton is absent which is huge for Tonali’s foul count and card potential.

Tonali had to fill Joelinton’s hybrid left sided role against Milan and made 4 fouls, miraculously escaping a card.

With being on that left side, he’ll run into Ousmane Dembele and Achraf Hakimi.

Of all playeds expected to start for PSG, Dembele is fouled more than anyone else at 2.39 times/90.

Hakimi is also impeded 1.30 times/90 and poses a huge attacking threat.

Hakimi ranks between the 85-99 percentile of European fullbacks for progressive carries, successful take-ons and touches in the opposition box.

Tonali will have his work cut out, as he looks to protect Dan Burn, who I can see being targeted.

Football icon Manuel Ugarte Booking

Ugarte leads PSG in tackles won with 15 (2.94 per game), more than double Zaire-Emery’s 7 in 2nd place.

This heavy pressing does come at a cost though, the Uruguayan leads PSG’s midfield in fouls per 90 (1.37).

Ugarte will come up against Isak and possibly his opposite number Bruno Guimaraes as he screens the PSG back line.

Isak draws 0.93 fouls and Bruno suffers 2.50 fouls on average which is second only to Antony Gordon’s 3.00 in the Newcastle squad. I’ll come to him later.

Ugarte will play as an anchor to allow his midfield teammates to get forward. This will leave him exposed at times on the quick break, which is how I expect Newcastle to play this one.

It was exactly this situation in which Ugarte earned his solitary card for PSG to date.

This brings in the threat of Antony Gordon as Hakimi likes to play high up the field and will open up space behind for Gordon to run into.

On a quick turnover of possession, with Hakimi in the final 3rd along with the other more positive midfields, it will be up to Ugarte to cover and stop him.
