Valencia CFTORelive your nightmare in the possession of a ball against Madrid as well as Bara, Betis and Osasuna
Albert Celadeshas shown since he was in Valencia thatHe is not allergic to the ball. Who wants itand pretends to be dominator of the situation. Proof of this is thatin the majority it has carried the singing voice or at least before equality of possession it has managed to handle situations and results. But the semifinals duelbefore Real Madrid there was an overwhelmed ValenciaIn all facets.
He was not comfortable. He was misplaced.A stranger sat on the grass. The ball didn’t have itand that, in a general balance, supposes a problem for those of Celades.
ValenciaI just enjoy the ball. Possession percentages were abysmal. Celades’ team barely had control at 38% … far from their rival,Real Madrid, with 62%.
The defeats of Valencia with the Catalan coach have come because of the impotence of not controlling the matches. The semi-final of the Super Cup is the most visible example of what happened. And the one that allows an analysis of, for example, whatit happened against Betis, Osasuna and Barcelonawhat have been the duels thatlost with Celades. In all of them the overwhelming possession and control of the opponent’s ball stands out. Celades’ team was not ‘in the field’.
Before himBarcelonaThere are excuses. He had only three days in the team and the attitude of the players in the debut of the coach was not the most suitable. Valencia fell thrashed (5-2) before a latent domination of the rival.A 65-35 possessionin favor of the azulgranas.
BeforeOsasunathey lost (3-1) and Jagoba’s team destroyed Celades’. They were overwhelmed at all times. The possession was66-34 in favor of the reds. It was a blurred Valencia.
And before himBetis, more of the same. A defeat, which despite the fact that it was at the last minute, the local merit thanks to that61-39 in possessionhe had his prize and the well-known punishment for those of Celades.
All the defeats of Valencia (and many draws as against Real Madrid or Sevilla in the League) have come from the high difference of possession of ball in the matches. There is onlyan exception. Celades team in that game ofChampions against Ajax in Metalla had 54% possession by 46 of the Dutchbut they were overwhelmed by therival effectiveness. It is the only defeat of the Celades era having more possession than the rival.
