Left Back: Ramy Bensebaini
In terms of left back, Borussia Dortmund have replaced Raphael Guerreiro with Ramy Bensebaini. The Algerian left back is a defensive upgrade on his predecessor. Bensebaini should offer a different dimension and a different type of flexibility to Guerriero.
Bensabaini is a set piece threat but lacks the same creativity and ability to carry forward and infield in the manner of a modern inverted fullback. However, that is not a knock on Bensebaini. The Algerian defender could offer the ability to shift to a back three in possession with right back Wolf pushing higher up the pitch.
He is also no slouch himself with relatively average progressive passing and creative numbers in a side that finished in the bottom half and had inconsistencies throughout the campaign. These numbers should see an uptick in a more possession dominant side. Bensebaini completed over .5 more progressive passes per game in the campaigns where Munchengldbach finished in the top half. While Ryerson provides competition Bensebaini should provide an upgrade in most aspects.
