Player to watch – Khvicha Kvaratskhelia

Very much the star for Georgia is Napoli’s Khvicha Kvaratskhelia who has been the subject of fresh transfer speculation this week. He registered 11 goals and six assists in Serie A this term and will be his country’s chief attacking threat in Germany this summer.

A bigger threat after the break

In Napoli colours at least, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has tended to do most of his damage after the interval. A huge 73% of his Serie A goals this term came in the Second Half, including five strikes after the hour mark.
