Handanovic Making Fewer Saves Whilst Conceding More Goals

Handanovic Making Fewer Saves Whilst Conceding More Goals

Before the Benevento fixture, the last match without goals conceded by Samir Handanovic was the one against Lazio, which was the last match of 2017, which Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport analyzes closer.

According to the report “the strange part is that although conceding a greater number of goals in the last few weeks, Handanovic has been forced to make fewer saves than in the first half of the season. In fact the Nerazzurri team had conceded 96 shots on goal, for an average of 5.05 shots per match where Handanovic intervened on 60 occasions, or 3.16  times per match, however, the goals conceded  were 14 averaging 0.74 goals per match.

“Though, in the return half of the season, the averages goals allowed increased and the number of saves made by Hadanovic have dropped. Even when comparing to the same opponents, the same strange trend emerges. In the first 7 rounds, the average of opposing chances had been 4.86 per match and the average number of saves is 2.72 per match, with 4 clean-sheets” the Corriere concludes.

The Nerazzurri’s tendency in the second half of the season is to get hurt by themselves: from Santon’s mistake against Udinese to Ranocchia’s own goal against Genoa, Inter has made life easier for the opponents and Handanovic hopes the ‘self destructions’ ended at the Marassi against Genoa.
