PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Almost a decade ago, he represented the famous white jersey of Real Madrid but tonight Fabinho will take to the field at the Santiago Bernabeu sporting Liverpool's red strip. The Brazilian midfielder has evolved since spending time in the Spanish capital as a teenager, having moved to AS Monaco before eventually making the switch to Merseyside for around £40m. Madrid have since established their own holding midfielder from Brazil in Casemiro, with the two ball-winners set to compete over the course of 180 minutes in the Champions League.

Firstly, the Madrid man appears a lot more inclined to find the net, having been occasionally used by Zinedine Zidane as an auxiliary striker at times, almost similar to how Marouane Fellaini has been deployed in the past by Everton and Manchester United. Casemiro has scored 13 goals compared to Fabinho's three, and although it is worth noting that he's played roughly 18 full matches more, his goals per 90 average is still higher than Jurgen Klopp 's destroyer.

In terms of ball progression, Fabinho again appears to have a slightly greater influence, averaging more progressive passes and progressive carries per 90 for the Reds, although Casemiro is a little more inclined to dribble, and he's twice as likely to switch the play from one side of the pitch to the other.

. Casemiro has a slight edge in the air, winning 61% of his duels compared to Fabinho's average of 59.1%, but the latter has tackled a higher percentage of the players who have attempted to dribble past him.

Ultimately, it is quite interesting how comparable the two players are. Not only do they share the same nationality and position, but they have both been contracted to Madrid at some point in their career, and they are more effective than the typical defensive midfielder across a number of areas. Fabinho generally has a greater impact in possession, whereas Casemiro has a greater tendency to find the net and overall, the player who performs the best over the 180-minute period will do a lot towards allowing his team to advance into the next round.
