Seems that we were bored of leading first and having comfortable wins vs. Cartagena and Depor, so we decide to go the comeback route in this match.
Stats are shocking, 70-30% possession for us, but not a significant chance, while they scored once and were more dangerous in overall, with only around 80-ish passes or so. On the other hand, we had around 350 passes… Sampaoli flashes for a moment there.
Thankfully, Liverpool is doing the job for us, they truly deserve the first place in the group as they are probably one of the best attacking teams in CL, and football needs entertaining teams like Liverpool.
In the meantime, the players are clearly on the pitch just to show up and not putting much effort, but in overall we seem to be very weak when attacking. Sarabia is playing too deep in the line at RW, he resembles Leicester’s Marc Albrighton, a stupid hoof-ball player that has terrible crosses.
Maybe we can turn this around, even though with Liverpool’s win we are already through as second. Not sure if the players are worth criticizing as they are also saving themselves for the important match on Saturday vs. RM, however, the likes of Maribor should’ve been beaten with a ‘walk in the park’ style, just like Liverpool did (0-7 in Maribor).
