Bavaria’s coach took a risk in Mainz, although there were enough factors for changes after 3 victorious games in a row.
Nevertheless: The defense chain is anything but popular with the record champion and numerous long-time players, in the favored 4-2-3-1 the team won 10 competitive video games prior to the World Cup.
In Mainz, Nagelsmann however went back to three central defenders and was right.
Later on he justified this with the reality that a man had just recently done not have in the middle of the ball.
Perhaps the truth is not dogmatic, but remains in the middle: Both systems can work, depending upon the challenger, orientation and, above all, their own game concept.
The last impulse for the triple chain must have offered João Cancels, who only needed 17 minutes for his very first goal in the 4-0 win and right away revealed that he could be reinforcement.
In addition to the system, Nagelsmann also risked something with a very offending line-up.
In front of the triple chain and the sole 6th Joshua Gimmick, he published 2 offending 8, Thomas Müller and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting Central with Jamal Musial and Leroy Sané, on the outdoors as a rail gamer Kingsley Coman and João Cancel.
Makes six stars oriented forward.
Or, depending on the point of view, still five if you count João Cancel rather defensively.
just 2 video games in front of Paris
The battle likewise supplied information.
There are only 2 games left to prepare for Paris, so it’s also about importing.
Nagelsmann has no factor for modifications if it runs like in Mainz.
Müller should have recaptured his place, his interaction with Musial and Seine benefits the group.
Choupo-Moting continues to satisfy dependably, must be set at the front since it is also important as a PlayStation.
For this, Nagelsmann missed a memo for the last weaker Alphonso Davies and showed the Canadian that he is not inviolable, especially in this system.
Nevertheless, after his alternative with the header, Davies responded to 4: 0.
And in Paris, Nagelsmann should hardly wish to do without the speed of the Canadian.
It is currently more challenging for Serge Gnabry, who came as a 5th alternative, the offending delivered without him.
Does the question stay where with Leon Goretzka?
After the forced break versus Frankfurt, the worldwide started on the bench.
It increases Nagelsmann’s choices.
And a strong bank is not one of the worst conditions for success and title in spring.
