His long passing really suprised me. He is a top notch pinpoint passer, pinpoint pass should definitely be there, maybe even a weighted pass technique, although I am not a completely positive about this. He is quite frequently using his pinpoint passing. We are mostly talking about diagonals, a very incisive, fast and tough diagonals to the left flank and a player who is chasing for a free space. https://youtu.be/Xum77rof52s?t=589 https://youtu.be/Xum77rof52s?t=582https://youtu.be/Xum77rof52s?t=533 https://youtu.be/Xum77rof52s?t=522
I'd give him 86+ for the LPS and smt like 83 for LPA.
I agree with Vinnie. Kimpembe and Silva are a much more focused on the all round playmaking - smart moves with the ball, breaking the opponent's pressing and lines with the short passing, etc. Marquinhos is a decent short passer but he is nothing extraordinary really. On the other side, his long passing is a top notch.
Also, covering card should definitely be here, that's one of his symbols.
Lack of the physical qualities is slowing him down at some point. He isn't really strong at duel and the timing of his jump ain't perfect, especially when it comes about defending the free space when the opponent is trying to exploit a high placed line of the PSG defence. That especially comes to our eyes when Marquinhos is playing in the pair with Kimpembe, as Kimpembe is a total amateur at that aspect, as well as every other stuff related to the aerial game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4V8pP3 ... u.be&t=698

not an aerial ball, totally irrelevant with this segment actually, but this example shows us his lack of security while his line is placed high on the pitch and he needs to anticipate the incisive passes
Another topic is his speed. He is able to catch a really great distances but does he really need these stats? ACC is perhaps on the place, as he is focusing on it much more than on the full sprint, but I don't think he needs 86 for TS. He is mostly catching a short distances. He is able to demonstrate an actual TS value but not on the regular basis, his full speed doesn't have a big place in his game neither. Koulibaly is on 83 for a similar reasons and he is able to demonstrate a much much faster sprints.
Also, SB position could be replaced with DM.
