Peak PB Scores
Portu is an attacking midfielder for Real Sociedad. Portu has impressively scored 27 goals over his last 3 seasons in La Liga and last season he scored 7 goals and also provided 8 assists. Portu's expected assists last season was only 5.51 and so strong finishing from Sociedad forwards may have helped him exceed his expectations when he came to assists last season. Portu does have a strong chance of earning In-Play Dividends in the future and David Silva's creativity in midfield may help Portu further. However, Portu's underlying player characteristics do not suit the PB matrix particularly well. Portu does attempt a high 3.71 crosses per 90, but only 23.2% were successful last season. Portu's movement off the ball is strong and he often gets into intelligent pockets of space in attack, but he only completes a low 21 passes and 1.27 key passes per 90. Furthermore, Portu only attempts 1.21 dribbles per 90 with just a 36.6% success rate. Overall, Portu's attacking awareness, decision making and clinical finishing makes him a dangerous player and he may occassionally hit high PB scores when he contributes to plenty of goals within a single game. However, he is unlikely to earn matchday dividends often due to his lack of general involvement throughout games.
1 Year Price Graph
Portu's price started the 2019-2020 season at £0.49. During the strong trend towards high PB scoring players, Portu's price shot up to a peak of £0.89. However, due to failing to hit high PB scores regularly, his price declined and he currently has a market price of £0.68 with an instant sell price of £0.63. Portu's spread has tightened recently due to his potential to earn a considerable return in the short term, via the 5X IPD promotion. Portu stands out as a player who benefits from this offer that will last until the end of September, especially as Real Sociedad have 4 fixtures within this promotional period. Therefore, if Portu does contribute to a few goals over the upcomings weeks, his price could rise further. In addition to this, Portu could benefit from more gametime this season due to Real Sociedad's involvement in the Europa League and he may be presented with more opportunities to score with David Silva's creativity being added to Sociedad's midfield. Overall, Portu could be a strong short term hold. However, his spread could widen and his market price could drop in the future once the 5X IPD promotion ends due to his low chances of earning matchday dividends.
