At 19:35 on October 16th, Beijing time, the 15th round of the 2020 Chinese Football Super League kicked off the first match of the championship group. Hebei China Fortune played against Guangzhou Evergrande, and fell behind 0-1 in the first half. Finally, with the goals of Wei Shihao, Exon and Wu Shaocong, Guangzhou Evergrande defeated Hebei China Fortune 3-1 and won the first round.
While watching the game in the first half, two pictures popped up in my mind: On the one hand, Trump vowed to say that Covid would disappear like a miracle. On the other side, Kashuai said that we still have to wait patiently until the return of the king of Talisca.
For Talisca, I have done a good job of mental construction as the American people expected Covid to exist for a long time, but when the first half of the game was dull, I still felt helpless.
Objectively speaking, it is unfair to blame Taliska blindly. His problem is more like a structural problem-the team's personnel structure and tactical changes have caused his shortcomings to be infinitely enlarged and his strengths nowhere to play- -Just as Western society cannot solve Covid more of an institutional problem. Talisca’s problem has been analyzed in depth in our previous articles, so we won’t repeat it, but the impact on the team is so real that everyone saw the huge contrast between the first and second half of the substitution. . Embarrassed, but had to accept this fact.
客观地讲，盲目怪罪塔里斯卡是不公平的。他的问题更像是一个结构性问题-团队的人员结构和战术变化导致他的缺点无限扩大，而他的优势无处发挥-就像西方社会无法解决Covid的更多制度性问题一样。 Talisca的问题已在我们之前的文章中进行了深入分析，因此我们不再赘述，但是对团队的影响是如此之大，以至于每个人都看到了替换上半场与下半场之间的巨大反差。 。不好意思，但是不得不接受这个事实。
There has long been a saying in football critics that "a blunt knife cannot kill the game." The first half of this game at Guangzhou Evergrande was a dull knife that made people look quite [unpleasant].
From the comparison of the main offensive data in the first and second halves, Guangzhou Evergrande in the first half had 69.3% possession rate, 320 passes and 88% pass success rate, but only completed 5 shots. 1 shot on the right, nothing on offense.
But unfortunately, this team of three people lacks the ability to attack the ball. Although they have done quite well in passing smoothness in this game, they still can only turn around the defense line built by Hebei Huaxia Fortune in the penalty area and its frontier, and there is no way to tear a hole in the opponent's defense line. .
Even if Guangzhou Evergrande can smoothly complete a pass of more than 15 feet with one kick in the 30-meter area, because it is completely in the same rhythm, it still does not cause any damage to the opponent's defense. pressure. And such scenes abound in the first half.
In the past, Guangzhou Evergrande faced a bus. A commonly used attack method is to use Paulinoli’s powerful ability to handle the ball in a small space, allowing him to hold the ball at the top of the arc in the large penalty area as an axis, and other offensive players interspersed around him to run and respond, and further the ball Passed to the big penalty area/rib area (for related tactical analysis see: Paulinho: Guangzhou Evergrande’s indispensable offensive axis). Unfortunately, Paulinho's state in this game is also very general. And because Talisca occupies the middle position of the 4231 formation, Paulinho had only 2 successful touches in the top of the penalty area in the entire first half. (The above picture has marked the touches of Paulinho in the 30-meter area in the first half with red and green, and the unmarked blue is the touch in the second half or the touch in a non-30-meter area)
And because the trio on the right is basically far from the penalty area, there are not enough players running into the penalty area. Even when the ball is successfully passed to Paulinho's feet, there are no more people at the top of the arc with him. Finish the match and further drive the ball into the dangerous area.
As a result, the awkward situation of [blunt knife] appeared in the first half. In the first half of the game, judging from the location map of the pass to the 30-meter area, we can see that the arc top of the large penalty area and the two rib attack areas that Guangzhou Evergrande relied on in the past, as well as the entire penalty area, are embarrassing vacuum. . Under such circumstances, even if Guangzhou Evergrande had performed well enough in passing in the first half, 320 passes in the half, 10.2 passes per minute, all exceeding the season average, but it still failed. Put any pressure on China Fortune’s defense.
On the contrary, Guangzhou Evergrande had only 223 passes in the second half, and the number of passes per minute was 7.4. It shouldn't be the data that a strong team should have, but it has achieved better results. Why?
At this time, we might as well take a look at the comparison of this heat map. In the second half, Cannavaro almost replaced the entire right offensive combination in the first half. Compared with Ta, Liao, and Yang in a group on the right, the heat maps of Wei Shihao, Fernando, and Xu Xin are not concentrated at any point, but almost cover the large forbidden area, ribs and side roads. Attack area.
If readers remember the comparison of the on-field data at the beginning of this article, they should have discovered that the first half of the successful breakthrough data is an extremely embarrassing zero. In the second half, this data is 6 times. It was these personal breakthroughs that broke the balance between offense and defense.
Judging from the number of individual passes and the number of passes per minute, Wei Shihao and Fernando (especially Fernando) are more inclined to break through with the ball than others on the field.
Regardless of whether it is Wei Shihao, Fernando or Xu Xin, they are more inclined to pass more aggressive passes than safe ones, and the sharpness of the team's attack has been instantly improved.
The effect of Wei Shihao and Fernando's double explosion points is obvious. Although the goal directly caused by their breakthrough may only be counted as a penalty kick, their vitalizing effect on the offensive end of the entire team cannot be ignored.
The second half of the pass to the 30-meter area is significantly different from the first half. Passes in the top of the penalty area and the rib attack area have significantly increased. The team's offense is no longer like being blocked by the current of the bus, but has a strong vertical penetration.
In the intermittent analysis of what Guangzhou Evergrande can learn from the top Premier League teams, it actually analyzed the aggressive frontcourt attacking style and steady backcourt defense of Liverpool in 2019. In fact, this is what Guangzhou Evergrande, which faces the league and AFC double cup matches this season, should consider carefully.
In Guangzhou Evergrande, the same midfield line has an attacking requirement for a forward penetration into the penalty area, but the running ability of the midfield line obviously has a grade gap. Although the ability of the back line dominates the Super League, the wide-back assists leaving behind a huge gap are still used by powerful foreign players in the midfield most of the time, and there are even problems with the ability to handle the ball in the midfield this season. . Therefore, if Guangzhou Evergrande also wants to ensure the major premise of [backcourt stability], the overall retreat of the defense line is a choice that has to be considered.
This season, Guangzhou Evergrande has only 6 matches against opponents, and they are basically facing teams with weak counterattacks, and teams with strong counterattacks have repeatedly lost goals. In fact, it is the result of the formation front pressure adopted to make up for the lack of attack line this season, and the future opponents will become stronger and stronger. Can such a tactic really continue? Is it feasible to pick up the defensive retreat from last year's 13th consecutive victory? At least in my opinion, it is a more appropriate choice in the context of this season's Double Cup.
In this arc top/rib running attack system with Paulinho as the axis, Talisca is clearly the one out of place. With great hopes for advancement, temporarily letting go of the illusion of returning to his state and restoring the king to a more pragmatic way to build a tacitly coordinated runaway attack system should be a more urgent matter now.
