They don't play that high octane press that much these days. More control, more possessionIt’s gonna be freaking hot in Madrid today.
It will surely affect Liverpool’s game plan and their high octane pressing style.
This will suit us more than Liverpool. I will say we have the advantage now going into the game! COYS!
Let’s hope we will see plenty of goals like above today!An illustration how we can break Liverpool pressing:
Eg., Everton vs Spurs. We played 4-2-3-1 which shifted to a 4-4-2 diamond when attacking. In this game, Winks and Sissoko combined effectively tgr to score our second goal.
1) Image below shows Everton pressing high up the pitch.
Winks passes the ball into the path of Sissoko who makes the run into the empty spaces in front of him.
2) Sissoko plays a 1-2 with Dele, effective cutting through Everton midfield who are mostly still covering back lost ground.
3) Sissoko then threads a through ball to Son who manages to shoot on target, GK saving it and then Dele taps in the rebound.
Winks + Sissoko partnership will be crucial in the UCL final assuming Wink is fit to play.
Nightmare come true in the first minute. Scousers xould proudly add another penalty kick goal to their CL goal highlight. What a disgrace. What has this game come down to. Purposely hitting defenders arm in the box? DisgustingThere are youtube videos for us and liverpool made by Uefa titled "goals to get to the final" or similar, I don't exactly remember the title now. But we had zero penalty goals while they had several in that gols video. I remember that. It was fucking scary. We better watch out.
