The Smart and Accurate Shooting of Sau

Following on from this article that MixedkNuts wrote on Serie A talent I thought it worth taking a cursory look at the shooting figures posted by Cagliari’s Marco Sau this season.

As Ted points out in his article he has some really admirable goals and shots on target numbers.

Here are his shot and goal charts (exc penalties) for the 2012/13 season:

Look at how tidy his shooting locations are. The vast majority of the shots are from central and / or fairly close in and his goal conversion ratio is also something to admire.
He seems to have the ideal mix of being a smartshooter and well as a sharpshooter.

So although most readers of this article won’t have heard of Sau before this afternoon, I’d have to agree with Ted in his summation of “This guy is special and could be a good goalscorer pretty much anywhere.”
