A defender with an attacking vocation. Rubén Peña is one of the full-backs who is most involved offensively in LaLiga. That is what the statistics show, putting him in the top five right-backs for pass completion rate, offensive one-on-ones and crosses completed in open play.
Talented and quick, Peña is important for Unai Emery’s side attacking plans, covering the right flank to join the Yellows’ attack. The Yellows No.20 gives freedom to Gerard Moreno, who despite lining up on the right win, moves freely around the pitch.
Peña started his career as a winger, and even played as a striker. As time has gone on, he has moved back on the pitch, until finding his natural position, as a right-back.
