Dimitri Foulquier: a warrior in Valencia CF's defense

The Valencia CF full-back is the third player who interrupts the most attacking moves and wins the most individual duels

Valencia CF defender Dimitri Foulquier has been one of the most outstanding players in Valencia CF's recent matches in LaLiga EA Sports 23-24. His intensity, work and sacrifice is reflected in both individual and collective performance.

The player from Guadalupe is the third Valencianista player who interrupts more rival attacking actions per game (3.2). In addition, he is one of the players who wins the most individual duels and the sixth with the highest percentage of success in aerial duels (41.7%).

With regard to his participation in matches, Foulquier is the sixth player with the most total interventions (54.7 actions on average) - against UD Almería he was in 70 total actions, the average of LaLiga players being 53.27-. Specifically, he is the fourth player with more participation in the offensive field (45.5 actions) -against UD Almería he was involved 61 times, being the average of LaLiga players a 44.82- and the sixth player with more defensive volume actions per game (9.5) -against Almería he was involved up to 9 times, being the average of LaLiga players an 8.5-.

This performance from Dimitri Foulquier and the team, is demonstrated, above all, in the matches played at  Mestalla. The Valencianista temple has become a fortress for the team coached by Rubén Baraja, and Valencia CF has been undefeated at Mestalla for 7 matchdays in LaLiga EA Sports, since September 27, 2023, without defeat.

With all this, the Valencian team is in seventh position in the table with 35 points from 23 games played and will be looking for another victory this coming Saturday when they visit UD Las Palmas in the twenty-fourth round of the competition.
