‘Customer success’: our success story with Estoril Praia

Category: News

Guilherme Muller, CEO of Estoril Praia, explains how Driblab has been very important in the Portuguese club's scouting process.


In the last two months, Driblab has gained the trust of these five clubs from five different countries:

  • Toluca (Mexico)
  • Estoril Praia (Portugal)
  • PAOK FC (Greece)
  • Modena 1812 (Italy)
  • Motherwell (Scotland)

As we have said on other occasions, there are two reasons, among many others, that are fundamental and equally relevant to explain this variety of clubs and countries that trust us:

  1. Our coverage of competitions, more than 180 and constantly expanding, which allows clubs to access players from all parts of the world.
  2. The second, and at the same time hallmark of our identity, is the flexibility of our database, which gives clients multiple opportunities to tailor their scouting model based on advanced statistics.

Thus, in an interview with the magazine ‘Tribal Football‘, replicated by ‘O Jogo‘, one of Portugal’s major media, Estoril Praia‘s CEO, Guilherme Muller, explained the importance of the data and the work we have been doing with Estoril Praia to find players in line with their club model. Estoril Praia has been really recognised for its ability to spot great young talent in a very demanding and difficult environment, competing with the big Lisbon clubs, Benfica and Sporting Club.

“Of course, talent scouting is a very important department for us,” explains Guilherme Muller. “We really need to look closely at the players we are recruiting, so we have been investing in scouting and also in the use of technology. Driblab is very important to us and it’s different from other technologies we use. It’s a very specific company for what we need, being able to show the kind of profile we are looking for. And this really helps.

“Unfortunately, we don’t have 50 or 100 scouts for the whole world, so we need to use technology to help us in the first stage of the process, in terms of choosing players. We no longer rely solely on the old scouting system based on ‘feeling’ because a club like ours needs to use technology. This helps us a lot in terms of choosing players better. Since we started our relationship, Driblab has been very important in identifying talent and the kind of player profile we are looking for for the club. It has been a success for us.

We are Driblab, a consultancy specialized in the statistical analysis of players and teams; our work is focused on advising and minimizing risk in professional football decision-making in areas related to talent detection and footballer evaluations. Our database has more than 200,000 players from more than 180 competitions, covering information from all over the world. Here you can learn more about how we work and what we offer.
