By The Numbers: Analyzing Nicolás Lodeiro's 2022 season

Lodeiro by the numbers cover

After missing most of 2021 due to injury, Seattle Sounders captain Nicolás Lodeiro has returned in tremendous fashion in 2022. Here is a look at Lodeiro’s season by the numbers:


Major trophies lifted

After the Sounders became the first MLS team in the modern era to win Concacaf Champions League earlier this year, Lodeiro led Seattle to its third major title in six years to go along with two MLS Cups.


Goal contributions in 18 matches in all competitions

Lodeiro has eight goals and seven assists in just 18 matches so far this season in MLS and CCL play. His 0.72 combined xG + xA is 0.07 higher than his 2020 MLS Best XI campaign.

Progressive passes

Lodeiro is not just one of the best passers in the league, he’s one of the best in moving the ball forward and into dangerous parts of the pitch. He’s in the 97th percentile in playing progressive passes and is constantly spearheading the Sounders into attack. 


Defensive pressures

Not only does Lodeiro dominate on the attacking side of the ball, he’s one of the hardest-working No. 10s in MLS. He averages just shy of 25 pressures per 90 minutes, which is in the 98th percentile among attacking midfielders and wingers. He is also in the 91st percentile in ball recoveries (7.84/90 mins) and 77th percentile in interceptions (1.32/90 mins).

Passes completed per 90 minutes

Lodeiro is first in MLS in completed passes per game and is at or near the top in nearly every type of passing category among attacking midfielders and wingers.


Touches per 90 minutes

Lodeiro is also first in MLS in touches per game among attacking midfielders and wingers, as he is on the ball nearly every minute. Fifty of those 86 touches come in the middle third of the pitch as the Sounders look to transition from defense to attack.
