Peruvian League Stats Now on FBref

Posted by Alex Bonilla on August 16, 2019

Our next addition to FBref's ever expanding stable of domestic competitions covered on the site is Peru's top level of football, Liga 1 de Fútbol Profesional, also known as Torneo Descentralizado. We have player statistics for the league back to its 2015 season, and are also tracking the 2019 season as the clubs begin their Torneo Clausura phase.

One player who gets some history filled out with this addition is Raúl Ruidíaz, who currently leads the 2019 Seattle Sounders in goals. Ruidíaz was a double-digit scorer for Universitario in Peru before moving on to Morelia in Liga MX and then jumping to Seattle in MLS. Carlos Ascues is also plying his trade in MLS with Orlando City. His previous club was Alianza Lima, making 10 appearances on their 2017 title-winning squad.
