Assessing the passing range of European central midfielders

Each bar chart measures the passing range of each player. All the passes are divided by 6 directions (top-forward, bottom-backward, right-right, left-left) and 3 distances (closest to center-shortest pass, farthest from the center-longest passes). Color represents pass’ success rate (standardized by z-score) of a group of passes. For example, De Bruyne is good at making forward long passes but very bad at making horizontal switching passes.
