Malcom 2018/19 - scout report - tactical analysis tactics

Malcom’s Barcelona career is unfortunately already over and the Brazilian is heading out the exit door of the Camp Nou. Even though it’s quite a disappointing ending to a fairly sad story, it is one that we all somehow expected to happen anyway. But despite limited game time, Malcom is still a player of high quality and can bring a lot to his new team.

For that reason, this tactical analysis scout report will look to dissect the player and give you his best attributes alongside the tactics that best suit his style. Barcelona might not have been a great place for him to show them off, but they are certainly there, and this analysis will aim to uncover them all.

Player overview

Malcom is a 22-year-old winger who used to play for the French side Bourdeaux before he joined Barcelona in 2018. The Catalans famously “stole” him in the last seconds before he managed to join Roma, having already packed his suitcase and practically being moments away from signing the contract.
