    That's very interesting, but I'm surprised Pozuelo isn't on either of the lists.

    I don't think it's that surprising. Pozuelo attempts way more passes to set up goals (ie through balls, inside the box passes, etc) as well as corner kicks. Those are all far more likely to be intercepted/blocked by defenders which lowers the completion rate. Poz is still an elite Passer, just that his passes have a higher degree of difficulty, which isn't accounted for in completion percentage
