Minimal Rotation, Sarri Has Only Played 15 Players In 22 Serie A Matches This Season

February 14, 2023

One reason for Lazio's poor performance this season is the difference in quality between the regular player and the reserve player led by Maurizio Sarri. This difference could be due to the uneven amounts of time that Sarri has given to the players he has.

As documented by La Lazio Siamo Noi, the team that Sarri fielded in the game against Atalanta that began on a kickoff is considered the regular team. Based on this, the substitute players' total playing time this season in 22 matches in Serie A is listed below.

 - Luis Maximiano: 6 minutes

 - Patric: 805 minutes

 - Mario Gila: 87 minutes

 - Stefan Radu: 0 minutes

 - Manuel Lazzari: 1,123 minutes

 - Luca Pellegrini: 0 minutes

 - Marcos Antonio: 306 minutes

 - Toma Basic: 368 minutes

 - Matias Vecino: 965 minutes

 - Luka Romero: 136 minutes

 - Matteo Cancellieri: 195 minutes

 - Pedro: 1,116 minutes

From this information, it can be deduced that aside from Lazzari, Patric, Vecino, and Pedro who have appeared multiple times since kickoff, other players on the reserve team have played little or no minutes.

This data is even more concerning when you consider that among the names on the starting lineup are names who haven't played many minutes because they were Sarri's backup. Elseid Hysaj has only played 796 minutes, while Luis Alberto has played 1,050 minutes.

This data also shows that Sarri has only used 15 players in 22 Serie A matches this season. While the remaining players are regarded as reserves.
