Judgment:

Alexandro Bernabéi is a very attacking-minded left-back who possesses very much potential in going forward. However, he does not excel in defending and he needs to develop a lot in the defensive area in order to be considered as a possible transfer target for Ajax.

The Argentine positions himself wrongly often. First of all, he most of the times follows the opposites right-winger around which leaves a huge gap on the left side of the pitch. Besides that, he made some errors in positioning himself when the opposites right-winger made a run. Against San Lorenzo this resulted in the winning goal for San Lorenzo.

In the defensive duels, he is intense and he wants to recover possession as quickly as possible. This sometimes results in recovering possession, but also in getting passed by the opposites right-winger, especially when this player is very skilful. Also, he sometimes anticipates wrongly, which results in him being too late in the duel.

In attack, Bernabéi did show promising signs. He is a very skilful player that always thinks one step ahead. The Argentine often passes his opponent and likes to make a run. Often, he times his run very well which get him in scoring positions or in a position where he can assist a teammate.

The 19-year-old is also skilful in the tight spaces, able to dribble past his opponent and he has the ability to play an accurate, hard pass into the final third. He likes to make a run to create space for the left-winger of Lanús as well. Before he receives the pass, he likes to check his shoulders and he makes the good choice after doing this also.

In the first phase of the build-up, Bernabéi is very useful as well. During the times that Lanús were put under pressure, the Argentine tried his hardest to create an extra passing option and he did this very well. Thanks to him, Lanús managed to play out under pressure often.

Conclusion

Alexandro Bernabéi shows a lot of promising signs going forward, but he has not shown any promising signs in defending. I think that he should stick to playing as a left-winger, instead of being trained as a left-back. In my opinion, he is a talented left-footed left-winger who has the potential to become a very good left-winger in the future.
