8) Compared to Mignolet…
At 6ft3 he stands an inch smaller than the Belgian, but has not been caught out as regularly in the air, with Mignolet particularly struggling with catching crosses.
7) Atletico Paranaense
Neto started his career at the Brazilian club in 2009, becoming a first team regular in 2010. This was despite being sent off in the first game of that season for a reckless tackle on an onrushing forward. Overall he made 36 appearances for Atletico before his move to Fiorentina in 2011.
6) Fiorentina Move
In January 2011, at the age of just 21 Neto made the move to Italy to play for Fiorentina. He has played 59 times for the club so far, with more appearances surely coming before any potential move in January.
5) Performance This Season
Fiorentina are sixth in Serie A so far this season, and have conceded only 17 goals in 18 games so far this season. They’ve won seven and drawn six of their 18 matches, placing them within four points of the Champions League places.
