With out tactical variations, Cruz-Maltino is well-versed and reached his third sport with out displaying good soccer
The draw with Coritiba must activate the warning sign in Vasco. Not due to the end result itself, because the sport was performed at Couto Pereira, which will increase the problem of the confrontation, however due to the workforce’s efficiency, which as soon as once more didn’t make its followers proud.
Vasco confirmed excessive issue in creating goalscoring probabilities, a tragic routine that accompanies the workforce all through the season, particularly towards opponents who play intently. With out creativity and with a tactic tactic, Cruz-Maltino abused the direct hyperlinks, little or no for a workforce that’s having loads of time to arrange for the matches.
Eradicated from the Copa do Brasil and Campeonato Carioca in March, Vasco had nearly a month of coaching for the beginning of the Campeonato Brasileiro. The Mineirão victory over Atlético-MG stuffed the followers with hope and this sense was bolstered after the draw with Palmeiras, when the workforce had a convincing and intense efficiency.
However the qualities displayed within the first two rounds weren’t seen within the defeat to Bahia and within the attracts with Fluminense and Coritiba. The sudden drop in efficiency is kind of spectacular, contemplating that, aside from the sport towards Coxa, Vasco had time to relaxation, recuperate and primarily prepare, whereas the tricolor opponents performed in the course of the week and even so had been superior within the area.
The reason for this may increasingly lie in Vasco’s predictability. Maurício Barbieri builds the technique based mostly on the opponent, however the tactical scheme is principally the identical. Defensive position with 4 gamers, three defensive midfielders and three forwards. The one variation offered, not in formation, however in lineup, was towards Bahia, when Marlon Gomes got here on in Rodrigo’s place.
Apart from that the workforce has at all times been the identical. Leo Jardim; Puma Rodríguez, Robson, Léo and Lucas Piton; Rodrigo, Andrey Santos and Jair; Gabriel Pec, Alex Teixeira and Pedro Raul. However on Sunday, Andrey Santos is not going to be on the sector towards Santos. This Friday, the defensive midfielder will be a part of the Brazilian Beneath-20 workforce for the class’s World Cup.
The embezzlement of Andrey Santos may be useful to Vasco, as it would power Barbieri to vary the workforce. The coach may even maintain the scheme choosing Barros, Galarza and even Carabajal. Nevertheless, if you happen to go for Figueiredo, the workforce shall be extra offensive, with out dropping defensive recomposition, an choice that appears to be essentially the most appropriate.
With the striker on the sector within the second half towards Coritiba, the workforce improved, beginning to assault on the left as properly, lowering the predictability of the primary half. With Figueiredo, Alex Teixeira might play nearer to Pedro Raul, filling the area within the midfield that’s occupied by a quantity 10, a participant who’s lacking from the Vasco squad.
It’s essential to current a brand new truth, reinvent your self, since there are 4 video games with out profitable, three of them enjoying badly. With solely 6 factors, Vasco is in 14th place, nearer to the relegation zone than to the Libertadores classification zone, a state of affairs that causes monumental discomfort to any Vasco participant.
