but it annoys me a bit that DS is the first thing to notice about this guy,

I think they deserve about the same rating in this department, although Semedo is more attack minded than Grimaldo, Grimaldo seems to take better advantage of space left free by defenders, has better definition and better criteria.
Defence: 66 -66
They both have the same value, and that's clearly wrong. Grimaldo deserves the better value between the two by a significant margin. Semedo is way faster and has Luisão by his side (notice Luisão TW value) yet despite the athletic disadvantage of Grimaldo over Semedo, Grimaldo manages to cover his flank very effectively. He has great tackling and good positioning, he's our mini Lahm and deserves an above average value for defense.
Balance: 72 -75
I think it's fair for Semedo to have the higher value, although there's not a very significant difference between the two.
Stamina: 84 - 86
Hard to say since Grimaldo has never really been in top form due to injuries, but Semedo has proven to deserve his current value or even higher, so i call it fair.
Top Speed: 82 - 88
Acceleration: 84 - 85
The TS gap is absolutely fair. Semedo is one of the fastest players in the league over big distances, and although Grimaldo isn't slow at all the gap is very clear. When it comes to acceleration i think the gap could be higher, Grimaldo's burst isn't anything special.
Response: 77 - 76
The gap should be higher. Grimaldo's reactions have shown to be nearly flawless, both in attack and defense. Semedo isn't bad, it's just that Grimaldo is really sharp.
Agility: 85 - 85
They are both very agile, i'm really unsure on this one.
Dribble Accuracy: 81 - 81
Dribble Speed: 84 - 84
Grimaldo probably has better control, but Semedo has more penetrating ability. Semedo risks more, has more flair, Grimaldo hardly looses a ball. Hard to say, don't think there's a real gap in DA favoring any of the two.
The same can be said about DS. I actually think Grimaldo retains more of his full speed than Semedo while on the ball, but in game Grimaldo already feels a little too fast on straight runs. Maybe they could both be downgraded, and have Semedo's TS raised.
Short Pass Accuracy: 77 - 76
Short Pass Speed: 72 - 73
Grimaldo is the better passer. But TW plays a big part on this aspect, so i'd say that strictly technically speaking Grimaldo has a slight advantage. On the other hand the overall disruptive capacity of Grimaldo's short passing is significantly superior to Semedo's, so Grimaldo deserves better values especially for new gen PES games where TW no longer exists.
Long Pass Accuracy: 82- 76
Long Pass Speed: 76 - 80
Grimaldo's LPS should be raised by a few points, and his LPA may warrant a raise two. I'd say (LPA 83/LPS 79). There's no question Grimaldo is the better crosser, this guy has great crossing ability especially at close range and must be a valid option for corners and free kicks in game. Semedo can cross from the side line with enough power, but he isn't that accurate.
Shot Accuracy: 67 -66
Shot Power: 78 -83
Shot Technique: 66 -66
I think from short range Grimaldo is better, it's just a feeling. But Semedo has proven he can score from outside the area. So there's no doubt Semedo deserves the higher shot power, but i feel like Grimaldo has better accuracy although he hasn't had the chance to prove it.
Free Kick Accuracy: 79 - 66
Curling: 83 - 68
It's useless to debate FK ability, Semedo stands no chance. The curling ability in crosses also favors Grimaldo.
Header: 66 - 66
Jump: 68 - 73
I think it's fair for Semedo, who is more athletic, to have a higher value. None of them is great or even good in the air, but no one really expects them to be.
Technique: 79 - 79
I really dunno. Maybe Grimaldo has the edge on this one? Not sure.
Aggression: 83 - 82
Plain wrong, Semedo has to have a gap over Grimaldo of 5 points or more, he's clearly the least balanced of the two SBs.
Mentality: 76 - 72
They should be about the same here.
Teamwork: 78 - 75
3 points may not be enough. Semedo is getting better with time but Grimaldo is a real team player and should have a distinct advantage on this department.
Condition/Fitness: 6 - 6
Grimaldo never had a bad game as far i can remember. Semedo had a few bad games but now that he's back in form he has been consistently good. On the long run, with no injuries, i think Grimaldo would be the most consistent of the two, but for the moment there's not a noticeable difference imo.
Weak Foot Accuracy: 5
Weak Foot Frequency: 5
Nothing to say here
Defense Prowess: 68 - 66
Ball Winning: 71 - 72
Like i said in the beginning Grimaldo is the better defender. His tackling is far superior and so are his reactions. He's also a better marker. As for positioning there is no noticeable difference imo
