Exciting offensive and defensive battles, fierce duel every inch of the earth, the duel between Liverpool and Atletico Madrid explained the charm of the Champions League. In this campaign, the Red Army took advantage of the home court to control the pace of the game. Klopp arranged for Chamberlain to assist Salah and Arnold to attack the right wing. The strategy effect of Simeone’s conservativeness in building the midfield system has led Atletico Madrid to stay in the game for a long time. Passively, the two goalkeepers' completely different performance changed the trend of the game. The performance of Marcos Llorente and Morata after coming off the bench may have an immeasurable impact on Atletico Madrid's next tactical construction.
利物浦和马德里竞技之间的激烈对决，激动人心的进攻和防御战役，在地球的每一个角落都进行了激烈的对决，这说明了冠军联赛的魅力。在这次运动中，红军利用了主场控制比赛的节奏。克洛普安排张伯伦协助萨拉赫和阿诺德进攻右翼。 Simeone在建立中场系统方面的保守策略效应导致马德里竞技队在比赛中停留了很长时间。被动地，两位守门员完全不同的表现改变了比赛的趋势。替补席上的马科斯·洛伦特（Marcos Llorente）和莫拉塔（Morata）的表现可能对马德里竞技的下一个战术体系产生不可估量的影响。
Due to the recent troubles both sides have encountered in the league, neither Simeone nor Klopp had a large-scale rotation in the league last weekend. There are 9 players in Liverpool’s starting lineup who need to take on the task of continuous combat. Henderson is back from injury. Klopp has hidden Fabinho, who has not performed well recently. His midfield combination has good running and coverage. Ability, Chamberlain's appearance has a positive effect on improving the offensive strength of the right.
Compared with the formation of troops in the first round, Simeone used more conservative troops in this campaign. Morata, who has a strong forward ability, stays behind, Correa is on the flank, and Cork is facing the offensive side of the hand on the left, which paves the way for Atletico Madrid's passivity in regular time.
Theoretically speaking, Liverpool have both players who can hold the ball strong, and they are also very good at using the width of the court to make efficient crosses. Barcelona and Real Madrid have both methods when breaking the Atletico defensive line. Liverpool moved the ball slowly in the first leg, and the organization and penetration of the offense were too slow. This gave Atletico time to quickly set up the defense. The early departure of Mane made it difficult for the team to continue to attack the shortcomings of Atletico's defensive system. (Left). After learning the lesson, Liverpool accelerated the attacking rhythm in this campaign, the frontcourt was relatively tough and the movement was also very active. This is the main reason why they can continue to form a suppression.
从理论上讲，利物浦既有能够保持球强势的球员，也非常善于利用球场的宽度进行高效的传中。打破马竞防守线时，巴塞罗那和皇马都有这两种方法。利物浦在第一回合中缓慢移动球，进攻的组织和渗透都太慢。这使马竞有时间快速建立防御。 Mane的提早离开使得球队很难继续进攻Atletico防守体系的缺点。 （剩下）。吸取了教训后，利物浦加快了比赛的节奏，前场相对较硬，运动也非常活跃。这是他们可以继续形成镇压的主要原因。
Atletico Madrid’s 442 formation can switch to 622/631 when it falls in the low position. The main task of the midfielder is to protect the line of defense. The double forwards must also participate in the low defense to protect the midfield area left behind by the full-back. , Do not give the Red Army the opportunity to easily shoot and transfer. Using the width advantage formed by the assists of the wingers, Liverpool can directly connect the front side with a long pass without passing through the midfield, and use the personal abilities of Salah and Mane to launch an attack.
Recently, the Red Army’s offensive efficiency has declined, Henderson’s absence and Fabinho’s downturn have affected the efficiency of the midfield, and the two full-backs have also been targeted by their opponents. There are actually three strikers in Atletico’s starting lineup. Liverpool’s backcourt bears greater pressure. This may be why Klopp restricted two full-backs to assist and asked the Red Arrows to withdraw more to organize attacks. the reason. Against Bournemouth, Salah, who played the "No. 10", created a lot of threats on the periphery, but also made many pass mistakes to give opponents the opportunity to counterattack. Atletico Madrid’s defense is tighter than Bournemouth. They do not score many goals but still have the ability to play efficiently in key games (such as the Western Super Cup elimination of Barcelona). Liverpool must make changes in attack.
Klopp arranged for Chamberlain to start. Liverpool had three players on the right who could complete the cross task. There were many changes in the local coordination and the sudden increase in attack. Salah's inside attack, Chamberlain's overtaking from the outside and the bottom pass after receiving the pass can all suppress Atletico's defense and provide Arnold with an open cross. Wijnaldum completed two headers in the penalty area, with crosses from Arnold and Chamberlain. Lodi's sense of position and movement control in defense are not sophisticated enough. Cork's physical condition limits his flexibility when he is on the sidelines. Both players struggled to mark Salah. Saul was involved in the defensive side. Thomas, who was generally athletic, couldn't keep up with the Red Army players' rhythm when defending. It was difficult to limit Liverpool's back-up attack in the middle. Chamberlain's starting can be said to fully activate the Red Army's offense.
Liverpool’s recent record has been turbulent, on the one hand because of the poor state of its own players, on the other hand, it is also because the opponent has found an effective way to restrain the Red Army, which is to block the backcourt while using forwards to counterattack. The 442 or three-back system is Better formation carrier. Although the Red Army caught the shortcomings in the defensive system, Atletico Madrid also have strong individual defensive players like Felipe and Oblak. They used their personal abilities to build the last barrier in front of the goal. Let Liverpool continue to expand the score.
The Van Dijk & Gomez combination has been criticized recently. The state of the former has declined, and the latter has been repeatedly used by opponents as a breakthrough in the Red Army's defense. Atletico Madrid failed to make good use of this in the regular time. The center forward took the ball with his back to win the gap between the team. The second forward relied on the speed to break through the space. This is the regular response of Atletico in passive. Diego Costa and Felix are obviously not as good as Mo in this regard. Lata & Correa.
At the beginning of the second half, Liverpool continued to attack and try to expand the score. Atletico Madrid's physical fitness seemed to have entered a short period of bottleneck. The movement speed and concentration of the players have decreased. There is a large gap between the two lines when they retreat. The guards do not have the top and the midfielders are not recovered in time. Liverpool calmly completed the pass in various areas of the frontcourt. , Constantly mobilizing to tear the visiting team's defense. Switching to Marcos Llorente to play on the right and pushing Correa to the front line, Simeone adopted a substitution strategy similar to that of the Western Super Cup against Barcelona. However, due to the lack of a center in the frontcourt, Correa closed in. The effect is not good.
下半场开始，利物浦继续进攻并试图扩大比分。马德里竞技的身体健康似乎已进入短期瓶颈。玩家的移动速度和注意力下降。退缩时，两条线之间有很大的缝隙。后卫没有上场，中场也没有及时恢复。利物浦平静地完成了前场各个区域的传球。 ，不断动员起来以破坏客队的防守。切换到马科斯·洛伦特（Marcos Llorente）进行右侧比赛，将科雷亚（Correa）推到第一线，西蒙内采取了类似于西部超级杯对阵巴塞罗那的替代策略。但是，由于前场缺乏中锋，科雷亚禁闭了。效果不好。
Since Arda Turan left the team, Atletico Madrid has lacked a full-back who can have midfield attributes, and the process of switching from 442 to 433 is not smooth. Bitolo was once regarded as a substitute for Turan, but his indulging in dribbling and neglect of defense seems to be unable to meet Simeone's requirements. In the Wingless 442 architecture, the center must have both a fulcrum and a wide range of side-receiving capabilities. The second forward needs to use speed to break through the depths and grasp the few opportunities in front of the goal. Morata & Correa only had less than two minutes of cooperation time. Atletico Madrid's striker could not give enough pressure to the opponents. Simeone's relatively conservative approach to attack decided to put Atletico in danger.
自阿尔达·图兰（Arda Turan）离开球队以来，马德里竞技（Aletico Madrid）缺少一名可以拥有中场属性的后卫，而且从442转换到433的过程并不顺利。 Bitolo曾经被视为Turan的替代者，但是他沉迷于运球和防守的疏忽似乎无法满足Simeone的要求。在Wingless 442架构中，中心必须同时具有支点和广泛的侧面接收功能。第二前锋需要运用速度突破深度，抓住进球面前的机会。 Morata＆Correa只有不到两分钟的合作时间。马德里竞技的前锋无法向对手施加足够的压力。 Simeone相对保守的攻击方法决定将马竞置于危险之中。
Due to the good performance of the starting lineup, Klopp did not replace Origi in regular time, the team's offensive posture has always been maintained, but also lost the opportunity to create chaos through variations. From a defensive midfielder to a full-back, Marcos Llorente's defense and passing are flawed, but he has not given up on the characteristics of daring to move forward. His efforts saved Simeone.
Arsenal in the "Invincible Fleet" era can be regarded as a foreign war layman. The Premier League in the new era is not the same as the era that just started continentalization. The influx of famous coaches and stars allowed them to seize the commanding heights of tactics and also created Liverpool's unbeaten record in the Champions League is proof. After experiencing the sluggishness and slack in the first round, Liverpool showed diversified game ideas and good tactical control ability in the second round. The overall performance of the team should satisfy the fans. If it weren't for the two goalkeepers to force the spotlight "The defending champion had a chance to achieve better results at home.
In the process of gradual decline in overall strength, Simeone has racked his brains to maintain Atletico's competitiveness. In the knockout stage of the Champions League last season, Atletico Madrid suffered injuries, Lucas-Hernandez, Felipe and Diego Costa were absent. Simeone tried to add three forwards + three central defenders in the 442 system. Failure, the battle of Turin ended dismal. At Anfield after a lapse of a year, Atletico Madrid's lineup is relatively neat, Simeone has a lot of room to turn around, they can withstand the pressure and finally achieve countermeasures. Before the capture of Anfield, Simeone had defeated Barcelona in the Western Super Cup with a similar routine. Oblak's bravery was not the only reason for this reversal. Considering the lack of absolute popularity in the Champions League this year, many teams have insurmountable structural flaws in the lineup. Atletico Madrid's own problems are not completely insoluble. They are expected to hit the top of the European Union like the "old boy" Chelsea back then.
