A Top Pedro Santos Performance

Last night the Columbus Crew worked over Cincinnati by a 3-0 scoreline. In it, we saw great performances from most of the team, but one, in particular, stands out: Pedro Santos.

His WhoScored rating of 8.99 makes it his second performance in the top 1% of all 3,672 Crew player ratings since 2013 (as far back as their and Opta MLS ratings go).

Here is a look at the number of times a player has performed in the top 1% off all performances.

Notable for Santos because this puts him one of only seven players in 8 seasons to fall in the top 1% two times or more. For some, this might stand in contrast to how they feel about his play. There have been some really rough games for him, but the top-level that he can play at is also near the top of Major League Soccer and he's doing it at 32 years of age.
