Milinković-Savić’s ability to pick out key passes and through balls has been cited as a couple of his strengths. The Serbian international averaged 1.5 key passes per game and had a pass success rate of 79.6%.
This doesn’t seem amazing on the surface – and it isn’t. But something to consider is that Lazio could only finish eighth in Serie A last season and struggled to find the back of the net (especially in comparison to 2017/18).
