Real MadridTOSearching the Brazilian's back has become a constant
Nor is the first coach who does it or be the last. Luis Garca Plaza prepares the game against Real Madrid with the focus placed on the left side of the white team.In it, the Villarreal's technician influenced his players in a special way. "The Madrid has great virtues, many more than defects, but we work to create problems Marcelo is, with Jordi Alba, the best offensive latera in the world, but back …", explained the coach of the team groguet after the game.
The team of submarine trainers devised a plan in which their right wing was a priority. All set Samu Chukwueze, the young Nigerian who has speed as his best weapon. The first play of the match already made clear the intentions of Villarreal: ball to the back of the Brazilian side, appearance of the Nigerian and a saving hand of Courtois to avoid the 1-0.Barely a minute later the pattern was repeated for Samu Chukwuezeleave behind Marcelo, take out all the defense of the Madrid site until you find Cazorla. And this does not fail.
Luis Garca Plaza insisted his players on the importance of looking for Marcelo.And not only for the damage that could be generated to Madrid in that area. One of his concerns was that the Solari team could not find the Marcelo-Bale connection that worked so well in the Club World Cup.
