Peak PB Scores
Axel Witsel is a central midfielder for Borussia Dortmund. Witsel is an integral part of the Dortmund set up and his defensive positioning and tackling ability will often play a crucial role in breaking up opponents. Witsel averages 1.26 tackles and 1.29 interceptions per 90. Witsel's ability to defend helps provide more freedom for many of Dortmund's more attacking midfield players and Witsel can also contribute in attack, especially in the original build up of attacks. Witsel is very comfortable on the ball, averaging a very high 67.87 passes per 90 and he also completes a very high 88.23% of his 1.1 attempted dribbles per 90. Although Witsel is very capable of scoring from range and can produce very high quality passes, he rarely offers much creativity in attack. This is highlighted by how he only provides a low 0.58 key passes and only 0.25 attempted crosses per 90. Overall, Witsel has the ability to hit fairly high PB scores often due to his high involvement in games, but he is unlikely to hit the PB scores needed to earn match day dividends often due to his low goal and assist threat.
1 Year Price Graph
Axel Witsel's price has dropped considerably over the last 12 months. Witsel's price hit a peak of £1.32 during the October 2019 strong trend towards high PB scoring players. However, since then his price has dramatically dropped down to a current price of £0.57 with an instant sell price of £0.34. Witsel will certainly benefit from involvement in the EURO's and the World Cup with Belgium and could also have an outside chance of earning team of the month dividends due to his high base PB scores. Therefore, recent dividend increases do make him much more valuable and he does appear a fairly strong hold if bought close to his instant sell price, given his chance of returning his price over the upcoming seasons. However, Witsel is relatively old of course and his chances of earning match day dividends are slim compared to many midfield teammates who are much more attacking. Overall, Witsel does appear a fairly strong hold, especially if bought at close to his instant sell price, but he is still very risky given his age and low goal threat.
