Player Review

Breel Embolo is a center forward for Borussia Monchengladbach. Embolo had a very successful 2019-2020 season scoring 8 goals and providing 8 assists in just 24 games. Averaging a goal contribution once every 97 minutes, Embolo makes for a strong player for earning In-Play Dividends and he will also benefit from Monchengladbach playing in the Champions League. Embolo is strong at getting in goal-scoring positions and averages a high 2.46 shots per 90, however, he could improve his finishing further as he only hits 35% of his shots on target. Furthermore, Thuram and Plea are both better finishers than Embolo and both average 1.44 shots on target per 90 compared to Embolo's 0.87 shots on target per 90. However, both forwards only scored two more goals than Embolo. Embolo is not particularly strong at passing only averaging 21 passes, 1.2 key passes and 0.14 crosses per 90. But, his strength lies in his pace and dribbling ability combined with his attacking awareness and ability to score and assist regularly. Embolo attempts 4.54 dribbles per 90 and has a fairly high 55% success rate. Overall, Embolo does not suit the PB matrix particularly well due to low passing and crossing statistics, but he only scored 1 GWG out of his 8 goals during the 2019-2020 season and he could certainly score braces/hat-tricks on occassion which could lead to high peak PB scores and him possibly earning match day dividends in the future.

Price Analysis

Breel Embolo's price started the season at £0.72. Following 2 goals in his first 3 games, Embolo's price quickly rose to £1.09 and fluctuated throughout the season depending on his form. Embolo's price hit a peak of £1.22 in May during the strong trend towards Bundesliga players, but has since dropped to £1.04 with an instant sell price of £0.79. Embolo hit form with 2 goals and 5 assists in his final 5 Bundesliga starts, but his price has remained fairly stagnant since due to a general lack of demand for Bundesliga players that are no longer in European Tournaments. Embolo will benefit from playing in the Champions League next season and he is also a Switzerland international and so could play at both EURO 2021 and the 2022 World Cup. It is likely that Embolo could currently be purchased at a signficant discount on his current market price and he could be strong value as a longer term hold given his potential to both increase in price due to earning In-Play Dividends and also his potential to occassionally earn match day dividends in the future.
