Nothing happens: pair of Brazilian defenders stands out in Europe

In the current football season in Europe, some Brazilian names have been standing out, among them defenders Thiago Silva, from Chelsea, and Ibanez, from Roma.

Thiago, who is already 38 years old and is well-known to Brazilian fans, has not committed a foul in four games – more than 360 minutes – and has not accumulated any loss of ball possession, with 229 correct passes and only five wrong ones, according to data from the footstats. The Brazilian has been one of Chelsea’s best players since joining the club.

Ibanez, 25 years old, gained notoriety when he was summoned by former coach Tite to the Brazilian national team, before the World Cup. In the current season, the defender is the best Brazilian playing in Italian football. In addition, the player has a 95% success rate in passes, being the team leader in that regard, and is the first in interceptions among all the athletes in the championship.

While Thiago Silva has already ended his cycle in the Selection after the Copa do Qatar, Ibanez can still be used for the next cycles of Amarelinha. The Roma defender, like the Chelsea defender, was revealed by Fluminense and transferred to Europe in 2019, where he stood out.
