Manager Eric Ten Hag revealed that he had prepared a groundbreaking tactic.
Manchester United will face Barcelona in the second leg of the 2022-23 European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League (UEL) round of 16 playoffs held at Old Trafford in Manchester, England on the 24th at 5:00 am (Korean time). The two teams drew 2-2 in the first leg, and the round of 16 will be decided based on the results of the second leg.
Ten Haag, who attended the pre-match press conference, said: “Two big clubs meet at Old Trafford. It will be a great atmosphere. We have to keep the mindset that we want to show better every day. We have to do our best to advance to the next round.”
In the last leg 1, both teams played very high quality games. It was a game in which the manager of both teams showed off their erratic tactics. First, coach Xabi Hernandez hired Ronald Araujo as a fullback rather than a centerback to block Marcus Rashford. The use of Jules Kunde and Marcos Alonso as centre-backs was also notable.
Coach Ten Hag saw through this. Coach Ten Hagh responded to Xabi’s tactics by appointing Rashford as a front-line striker rather than a left wing forward. The intention to aim for a goal was outstanding by placing Rashford, whose scoring power has recently risen, at the forefront. 온라인바카라
In the meantime, he entrusted the role of midfielder to Verhost. On this day, Manchester United formed the midfield with Fred and Casemiro, including Boot Verhost. Bruno Fernandes played like a right wing forward and supported the attack. Coach Ten Hag ordered the role of an attacking midfielder, expecting Verhost’s strong forward pressure and vigorous activity.
Even before the second game, manager Ten Haag revealed that he would take out his trump card. “You’ll see what we do on the pitch. We have ideas,” he hinted at bringing out groundbreaking tactics. As various tactical changes were used in the last game 1, it is expected that great attention will be paid to the tactics to be brought out in the second game.
Ten Haag also opened up about injured players. “I expect Harry Maguire and Anthony to return. Anthony Martial is unavailable. He is back in training, but waiting to train the team.”
