Ilaix Moriba Style of Play

Something that immediately stands out when you watch Ilaix is how comfortable he is with the ball. Pulling off flicks to see a teammate through on goal, dribbling out of tight spaces and executing a cheeky nutmeg to get past a player followed by a chipped ball over the defense.

The Spanish midfielder has always demonstrated his ability to get a ball at his feet. That supports his team in many ways, the most important of which is moving from deep spaces. Ilaix's physical form supports him in several ways, including this. He's going to get the ball in his own half a lot of times.

If there's space to drive in, Ilaix's going to take advantage of it. His physical form means that it takes much more than easy pushes to get him out of the ball. This is something that Barcelona B did not have in a player lately. Even very great in small spaces, the close control of Ilaix is very polished. He attaches a further layer to the ball-progress of the team.

In terms of passing, the passing range of Ilaix is the highlight. Incisive passes through the defense, long-passes to switch the play, delicate chips and, he has it all.

It's hard to provide a survey of what Ilaix offers without talking about his shooting ability. He has an impressive range of shooting and continues to produce a lot of strength even with a relatively small back-lift at times.

One goal came from the half-way line in the previously stated match against
