Cengiz Ünder, who transferred to Fenerbahçe from the French club Marseille for a transfer fee of 15 million euros in the summer transfer window, continues to dazzle with his outstanding performance. The national team's star, who has made a significant contribution to the team's championship race in recent times, has managed to attract attention with his statistics.
AT THE TOP OF THE SUPER LIG
In the fourth week of the Trendyol Super Lig, Cengiz, who got injured in the Antalyaspor match and had to stay away from the fields for a while, made a comeback like a bomb after recovering. The star player efficiently used every minute he played. With the influence of Irfan Can Kahveci's high form, the winger, who started in only 8 out of the 22 matches played this season, became the most efficient player in the Super Lig's goal-scoring charts by scoring 8 goals, surpassing his expected goal value of 1.96 by a margin of 6.04. Wilfried Zaha follows Cengiz, having scored 9 goals with an expected goal value of 3.62.
SURPASSING EVEN KANE
The efficiency of the star player in front of the goal has also placed him among the top in Europe. With this statistic, Cengiz ranks second in the five major European leagues. The top spot is held by Inter's star Lautaro Martinez, who scored 19 goals with an expected goal value of 11.93, creating a margin of 7.07. Harry Kane, in third place, created a gap of 5.94 between his expected goals and actual goals.
MAKING MONTELLA HAPPY TOO
Cengiz's rising form at Fenerbahçe has not only pleased the yellow-navy team but also brought happiness to the Turkey national football team's head coach Vincenzo Montella. The peak form of the left-footed right-winger provides hope for the national team ahead of the 2024 UEFA European Championship.
