The first great tactical defeat of Celades

The Valencia coach had won the tactical game to other coaches such as Lampard or Garitano. In front of Galtier he was overcome.


Albert Celades was one of the biggest players in the draw his team reaped yesterday in France. The Spaniard corrected himself in the line-up by introducing Carlos Soler to the break, but his team's game got worse again when he sat Gameiro on the bench just 20 minutes later. It was the first time since the Catalan arrived in Mestalla that the rival coach left him without a blunt response.

Y is that one of the best facets that the coach has shown since his arrival has been the study of the rival and consequently the adaptation of the system. In fact, in his first big game against Chelsea his approach went well for the team. In the New San Mamés he also won the tactical game against Garitano. And even against Ajax in Mestalla, despite the blunt 0-3, the Ches dominated the game for a long period.

In addition, when the coach has not hit the key at the start of a match, he has demonstrated the ability to react. Facing Alavés, when the team was being overcome, Diakhaby's entry balanced the duel. And in the Wanda Metropolitano, with the tickets of Soler and Gameiro his team came up.

However, yesterday he did not find a clear answer to Galtier's approach. Celades introduced Paulista, faster central, and Diakhaby, higher central, to stop Osimhen, and he succeeded. However, Lille took advantage of it and put a strong pressure on the defenders, aware that the best center with the ball at his feet, Ezequiel Garay, was not. On the other hand, the double marking to Parejo annulled that of Coslada that found no partner. Also, the entry of Soler washed his face to the team, but when he introduced Kang-In with the idea of having more ball, the squad did not respond well either.
