How does Ludwig Augustinsson, Sevilla’s new signing, play?

The Sevilla FC has made official the hiring of Ludwig Augustinsson until the summer of 20225. The incorporation has been closed at 5.5 million euros from Werder Bremen, a club in the second division of Germany. A more than interesting signing for the new La Liga season.

The Swedish, 27, comes to Ramón Sánchez Pizjuan to have his first opportunity in Spain, after emerging from his country’s league, moving to the Danish first division and making the jump to the Bundesliga. He has played 297 matches in his entire career at the national level with 11 goals and 63 assists, a number that is more than interesting and that shows the type of player he is.

How does Ludwig Augustinsson play?

He is a left-back who stands out for his defensive traits, he is one of those who win the most aerial duels (3.0 per game) and he performs the most shooting blocks in the main European leagues. He dominates the area when he has to intervene in it, either to defend a lateral center or to hinder the appearance of a rival.

But, beyond the aforementioned, Augustinsson also has more than interesting offensive traits. Last season he averaged 1.8 key passes per game and he likes to appear close to the rival area to center. He reaches the band and has a more than interesting hitting to connect with his teammates in the area.

In the Swedish national team, using the last European Championship as a reference, he played as a left back in every game, but his heights changed depending on his rival. Against Spain he played almost like a third center-back, but in the rest of the games he was much more aggressive and came to the rival goal with much more danger.

In FBREF, page where players are compared and analyzed by statistics, compare the Swede with names like Vladimir Coufal, Lucas Digne, Lucas Olaza and Sergio Reguilón. Which means that he is a winger who stands out in defense, but who can also make a difference near the rival area.


Augustinsson comes to be an important piece in the rotation, considering that Acuña is the starter for Julen Lopetegui. He is a footballer who can offer many solutions to the Nervión team, both when he has to lead the game or when he has to maintain a more reactive stance.

The Swede is a variant that will add to the rotation, like most of the signings that have come to the club in this summer transfer market.
