Mario Gila's Breakout In Lazio's Defensive Line

April 05, 2024

Mario Gila has been a surprising standout this season, catching the attention of new coach Igor Tudor. Initially joining Lazio as a backup central defender with aspirations of becoming a future starter, the Spaniard's dedication, consistency, and perseverance have propelled him to an essential role in the team. Here are the details of his progress:

Gila began featuring in Lazio's four-man defense under Maurizio Sarri, gradually earning a permanent spot in the starting lineup. His growth and maturity have impressed Tudor, who now relies on him for a different but crucial role: operating as a left-sided central defender with the freedom to push forward like a winger. According to reports from Corriere dello Sport, Lazio's win rate increases to 50% with Gila on the field, conceding an average of 1.0 goals per match. In contrast, without him, the win rate drops to 42.9%, and the average goals conceded rise to 1.2 per match.
