Not just a rock at the back

RB Leipzig had the league's best defence in 2020/21. With Willi at the back, the Bulls only conceded 32 goals. On top of that, the 28-year old Hungarian was a regular threat at the other end from set pieces. He scored four goals in the Bundesliga, with no other RBL defender netting more often this season.

His aerial presence was also impressive this term. Willi won 136 aerial duels, the third-highest tally across the division.

Willi had a club-high 64% challenge success rate in the Bundesliga last season. On average, Orban only committed a foul 0.57 times across 90 minutes.

Long-term servant

Orban moved to Leipzig in 2015 from 1. FC Kaiserslautern. Since joining, the club won promotion to the Bundesliga, reached the semi-finals of the Champions League and have finished runners-up in the DFB-Pokal on two occasions.
Willi is a key figure at the club and has become an important player for the Bulls. He has also become a Hungary international and will take part in EURO 2020 alongside teammate Péter Gulácsi.
The centre-back has played 196 times for RB Leipzig in all competitions, scoring 18 goals. That makes him the most prolific defender in the club's history.
