Lebese's Match-Winning Display Analysed

George Lebese gave a Man of the Match display in helping Kaizer Chiefs to a 2-0 win over SuperSport United in the Nedbank Cup. His well-taken late brace sealed off the win in a game that could've gone either way at times. 

Nonetheless, the left winger appeared to give a bright showing throughout the cup tie, and was rewarded for his efforts when he bagged two goals late into the contest.

An analysis of our exclusive Soccer Laduma stats highlights the impact the player made throughout the 90 minutes. Lebese rarely gave the ball away and looked after possession very well. He had possession of the ball 30 times and successfully completed 25 passes for an impressive 83% success rate.

He was also productive when it comes to putting the ball into danger areas in the box - he put in four crosses although he never found a target on each occasion.

The left-sided attacker also played some accurate passes into danger areas around the opposition's heavily-defended final third. The 25-year-old completed six out of eight passes (75%) which is a good return given how tight these areas can be.

The Mamelodi-born star was also extremely busy when it comes to putting in a shift defensively. He put in 14 challenges and was able to win five of them as well.

However, the most telling stat is that the player was extremely clinical when it comes to attempts on goal. Throughout the 90 minutes against United, he had just two shots. As the record shows, he converted both as the Glamour Boys took the win.

Nonetheless, Lebese's good form seems to have come at an important time in the season. Chiefs face a crucial run of matches in the league race and "Finidi's" ability to win a match on his own will surely be an asset to coach Stuart Baxter.

The Amakhosi next take on Polokwane City in a PSL clash on Wednesday (April 16).

The action gets underway from 19h30 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
