Having survived the four coaches of Malagobi, he suddenly became a veteran of the Wu Dynasty.
Although the scene and performance have improved significantly since leading the team, the Spaniard fired Abelardo. Former sports director Rufitt took up the pointer and faced an almost impossible relegation situation.
In the first game after he took over, his opponent was called Real Madrid.
However, after the game started, the Spanish fans who still had hopes, the Chinese fans who looked forward to Wu Lei's reappointment against the giants, and the Barcelona fans who temporarily came to the city's rivals hoping for Real Madrid to lose points, were delighted to discover: yo yo yo, there is something wrong!
Real Madrid fans have a question mark on their faces: hey hey, did you tell me this is the bottom team?
Rufitt's coaching debut, the Spaniard lined up a very special 4411 formation. In the past, Embalba, who played as a winger, served as a midfielder with a wide range of activities and a high degree of freedom. Wu Lei did not partner with De Thomas as a double forward as people expected before the game, but became a right forward.
But this does not mean that his role in the offense has been reduced.
In fact, the Spaniard's thinking is very clear. Anyway, there is no way to retreat, so I just go out and press for it. If you can't grab it, you will chase it back collectively, and you will pass it to Wu Lei.
Yes, due to Mendy's suspension, Real Madrid's left back in this game is Marcelo. In the face of Marcelo now, Wu Lei has a very obvious speed advantage.
Therefore, in the first half, we saw Embalba and Roca's various through passes behind Marcelo, Wu Lei drove the ball straight into the hinterland, the penalty area line exploded, the bottom triangle fell, and the porcelain was touched. Ramos...The Real Madrid fans who were still laughing at Umtiti yesterday felt the fear of being dominated by Marcelo's back.
It can be said that the most threatening offensive of the two teams in the first half was Wu Lei's main right.
What about Real Madrid?
To be honest, Real Madrid in the opening stage may not be as smooth as the Spaniard. In this game, Zidane continued his attempts at the right wing position and chose Isco to start. However, because Modric also accumulated yellow cards to suspend the game, Real Madrid lacked a key fusion point between the two wings, especially the ribs.
Hazard is on the left, and Isco is on the right after taking Isco, and Isco is gone after taking Isco...The only time the two sides use the width of the direct connection, Isco who stops the ball in the open only hates My legs are too short.
How can you win if you are not comfortable playing?
As a result, the Real Madrid players soon began to return to their familiar positions. Specifically, Isco kicked and wandered back to the left, with the familiar Mahjong table.
Isco, Hazard, Marcelo, plus Benzema who pulled the side, met his teammates in three steps from the left and met his opponents in five steps, crowded like the main roads in the city during the rush hour. Occasionally I remembered to transfer to the right, alone Carvajal blowing on the early morning highway.
How to solve this problem?
It's simple, just pull a center forward to be the pivot. As long as there is a fulcrum that can catch and protect the ball, the large forces on the left will then blow the charging horn diagonally, and the routine of strong side set fire → weak side response → center outflank is not safe.
what? Did you ask Benzema also go to the left to rub numbness? Sorry, the center I'm talking about is Ramos.
In the second half of the first half, Real Madrid gradually clenched the initiative with more than a bit higher hard power, and the Spaniard's steal counterattack was no longer as sharp as the opening.
Ramos, who was free, began to significantly increase the frequency of his forward pressure, filling the team's key vacancy at the right rib junction. The waist is no longer sore, the legs are no longer painful, and the long pass transfer is really there.
First, after a cross from left to right, Benzema, Casemiro, Diego Lopez, Gomez, Wu Lei and Hazard joined hands in high-speed table tennis. The ball was changed many times within five seconds, and the ball player bounced out of bounds.
After that, Marcelo found Ramos with a long pass from the left. Benzema received a header from the "strike partner" and a second pass from his heel. Casemiro cut from the right wing and scored.
Yes, this is very Reed Majiahuang.
This goal at the end of the first half took the situation in the second half in a completely different direction.
Real Madrid, with one goal in hand and enough to win, began to consume the ball. The front and rear organization cores Benzema and Kroos no longer focused on attacking forward, and added a lot of safer cross passes and back passes. With the difference in strength between the two sides, it is difficult for the Spaniards to fight back quickly through collective encirclement like the beginning, and the vigor of fighting gradually disappeared.
As a result, Rufitt made a series of substitution adjustments, completely overturning the first half of the idea.
Replaced the active Wu Lei and Embalba, and Daddell, who was sleepwalking on the left as soon as he hit the left, replaced Calelli as the double forward, and then used young men like Melamed and Pol Lozano. Fill up the fighting spirit and vitality, try to use the classic style of passing the twin towers to try another miracle.
But the miracle still did not appear.
Real Madrid's possession rate eventually reached 69%, more than in the first half. With such a huge disadvantage in possession, the Spaniard did not get many crosses in the sports battle even if he took the brutal collision of previous years. The closest they came to an equalizer was when Bernardo was a few centimeters away from the top of the line when he made a free kick.
It's just that... Real Madrid's huge possession advantage limits not only the opponent, but also himself.
In the second half, Zidane replaced Hazard and Isco with Brazilian double stars Vinicius and Rodrigo at the same time. We originally thought that this also represented a complete switch of style. After all, compared to the dribbling of the two big guys, the nationality and age of the two newcomers are almost a capitalized "rush".
However, during the half-hour playing time, we basically never saw them rushing up. Every time they were in fourth gear and before they had time to step on the gas pedal, the big brothers would use a kick back and step on the brakes: "Close."
It is true that this style of play is undoubtedly the most economical choice in the final stage of the championship where three points are more important, especially in the high-intensity environment of three days after the rematch. If you don’t believe me, you can see that after Real Madrid changed to Vinicius and Rodrigo in more than 60 minutes, the remaining three places in their hands were useless until the end, because these players on the field played health and comfort, and directly recovered after the game. It was arranged in 90 minutes.
The only problem is-this is too unfriendly for fans who stay up late.
After filling two cups of coffee and one bottle of Red Bull, I finally finished the second half of this extremely hypnotic. Looking at the data, both sides have 4 shots, but they did not add up to create an excellent scoring opportunity. Recalling the process, it seemed that just a few long shots from the middle of the goalkeeper, at most, Marcelo pressured the whistle to clear the siege because the broadcast angle was exactly like an Oolong, and it was refreshing.
Real Madrid finally became what he hated the most. Of course, the reason I hate it before is not because this style of play is the best way to save yourself, consume opponents, and achieve the best results in the long league system.
And the Spaniard... at least dedicated a positive, strong, clear tactics, smooth operation of the best first half of the season, many people are saying: You played so long ago, Wu Lei used so long ago, why are you struggling to bottom out now? .
But now, it's too late to say anything.
