The French defender has adapted quickly to Barcelona's style of play

Umtiti also breaks records. He made 115 good passes against Granada in this Saturday's match at Camp Nou. A stat any single defender managed to secure in La Liga this season. Former Olympique Lyon player did it with 120 passes, which means the 96% of them were successful.

Umtiti has proved he is capable of playing the Barcelona style. He has played 5 league games, with 75 passes per game and a 91,7% of successful passes. He is third in this stat in the squad behind Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal. However this last one has only played one game, against Alaves.

Umtiti always looks for the short pass. Pique and Mascherano sometimes try a long ball. They try 7 per game while Umtiti only 4. Mathieu is the less risky one and only tries 3 per game.
