This study aimed to assess the technical match performance of top-class football players ina long-term perspective. Technical performance profiles of players according to five playing positions(central defender, full back, wide midfielder, central midfielder, forward) and five situational variables(competition stage, match location, quality of team, quality of opponent, match outcome) wereestablished. Technical match data of players in the UEFA Champions League from season 2009–2010to 2016–2017 were analyzed. The true effects of positional and situational variables on players’ technicalperformance were evaluated by the non-clinical magnitude-based inference. Results showed that theeffect of competition stage on player’s performance was negligible. Quality of team,quality of opponentand match outcome revealed the strongest effects on player’s performance (ES:−0.42±0.10–0.59±0.10)while the effect of match location was relatively lower (ES:−0.32±0.10–0.23±0.07). The numberof variables that showed statistical differences under five competing contexts for wide midfieldersand forwards were higher than those of central defenders, full backs, and central midfielders.Differences of players’ match performance could mainly be identified in variables related to goalscoring, passing, and organizing, these findings may provide important insights for coaches andanalysts during the match preparation and training session.
