General Notes

  • Extremely counter-minded team, attackers run willingly to the offensive third (video 1)

  • If the winning team tends to preserve the current result rather than to score more. Players do not press aggressively, instead they play long balls if under pressure, but also want to use their chance for a counterattack if there is no pressure applied by the opponent

  • Not fast center backs, sharp low passes in behind defensive line should make the difference

  • Most dangerous player: Manuel Schmiedebach
