Driblab in ‘Play Fútbol’, from Cadena SER

Category: Team Analysis

Salvador Carmona spoke on 'La SER' about the impact of advanced statistics in the world of football, and what stage of acceptance it has reached at a time when the pandemic may have punished clubs financially.

On the occasion of the Champions League final won by Chelsea, it was a good time to review which players have stood out in this 2020/21 edition. Invited to chat with Bruno Alemany, director of ‘Play Fútbol’ on Cadena SER, the radio station with the highest audience in Spain, we assessed the best eleven of the competition, using all our metrics, from Thibaut Courtois to Erling Haaland, including Ruben Dias, Toni Kroos and Phil Foden.

In the same programme, Driblab’s CEO, Salvador Carmona, talked about the impact of advanced statistics in the world of professional football, and what is the current state of acceptance at a time when the pandemic may have punished clubs financially.

Salvador Carmona: “I believe that ‘big data’ has an unstoppable degree of penetration in professional football (…). Football has become very professionalised and the time will come when advanced statistics will be just another tool, as has happened in other sports. Last year, for example, live football didn’t exist because of the pandemic, because you couldn’t go to the stadiums, and companies like Driblab can filter and help in that process. It’s a great way to find those profiles that are being sought.”
