With the Africa Cup still somewhat in his legs, Ismael Saibari stepped onto the match field again for PSV on Saturday night. Nevertheless, the midfielder played a good game and can provide some nice statistics.

The Morocco international returned to PSV Campus De Herdgang just two days before the start of the topper. He stood his ground in the Johan Cruijff ArenA. After a good combination with Hirving Lozano, Ismael passed the ball to Luuk de Jong. The PSV captain shot cleverly in, scoring his tenth goal against Ajax and giving the 22-year-old midfielder an assist.

Reliable sender
With an 88% pass accuracy, Ismael was a stable factor in the middle line of play. After his adventure with Morocco at the Africa Cup, which ended in the eighth final on Tuesday, he was on the field for 97 minutes in an intense match. In total, 21% of his sent passes were toward Ajax's goal.

Defensive and attacking
As an attacking midfielder, he played thirteen games in the Amsterdammers' half. Defensively, too, the right winger was a stumbling block. Ismael fired three shots, but twice hit an Ajax defender and once the hands of Diant Ramaj. He fought four duels, winning three of them.
