Those of Luis De La Fuente will play the Gold Medal on Saturday 7 against the sub23 green amarelha in a match that will take place in Yokohama. To do this, they must take into account several aspects, among which we highlight the following:
The Everton forward is the tournament’s top scorer right now with five goals. He is Brazil’s goal man, although it is true that he concentrates his goals in the first and last group stage games, without having seen a goal in the knockout rounds.
André Jardine’s pupils enjoy a notorious verticality when it comes to taking advantage of offensive transitions with footballers such as Paulo Henrique Sampaio “Paulinho”, Cláudio Luiz Rodrigues “Claudinho”, Antony Matheus Dos Santos or Richarlison De Andrade himself. That is why in Spain they will have to take great care of losses and, if they arrive, continue with a good balance between pressure and withdrawal.
The veteran Daniel Alves (38) has a remarkable offensive projection, with which Marc Cucurella can have a lot of work behind with the help of Mikel Oyarzábal, but also attack a lot the space left by his direct rival. It may be interesting the inclusion of Bryan Gil from the beginning to look for the overflow in that parcel of the field of play.
The Brazilians have two great midfielders in the form of a double pivot such as Douglas Luiz and Bruno Guimaraes, but in Spain the payroll is higher with Mikel Merino, whom we have seen as a pivot and inside, Martín Zubimendi as a defensive profile and Pedro González “Pedri “as a connection to the attack. It may be a good option to look for the first and last with Carlos Soler to look for numerical superiorities.
La Rojita’s game has been characterized by being somewhat thick and not translating the dominance of the ball at times. Against a team with so much offensive power, it will be important to take advantage of the opportunities available, especially to create doubts in the rival.
