The pressing in power, their teams at the top in Italy: Gasp seeks Europe, Ivan the revenge of the first leg
High pressure. This is nothing new for Gian Piero Gasperini and Ivan Juric. There is talk of an approach to a challenge, even a personal one, which for the two will never be trivial and which once again has its roots in strong motivations: it would be deceptive to consider them as such only for the Nerazzurri coach. Atalanta’s next Europe travels on the edge of an obligation, that of winning all the next five games, or in any case to score as many points as possible: in Venice he has begun to weave a very delicate web, tonight he cannot afford to undo everything already. And don’t be fooled: the satisfaction of a quiet ranking is a concept that has the effect of hives in Juric. All the more thinking of the undeserved defeat of the first day, which came in the 91st minute. “We had a good match, this time we want to get a great result. It will be a tough match but not impossible.”
The effectiveness of pressing
But we also talk about the philosophy of the game: a football played forward, always intense, possibly not to let the breath. High pressure, in fact. Or pressing in power, as per the PPDA ranking (passes for defensive action), an index that arises from the relationship between the passes made by the opposing team in their own half and the interception attempts (tackles, steals, fouls): the higher the number, the less pressure is continuous. For PPDA, Torino is the Serie A team that allows fewer passes between one disturbance attempt and the next (and also the one that presses better, as well as more, based on the passes completed by the opponents), followed by Atalanta. .
The Gasperinian origins for Juric have always been a source of pride. Up to the point of defining Gasp, last week, as “the leader” of a new generation of coaches who are sowing football in Serie A “very similar to the trend that has been present for years, especially in the Bundesliga, focused on the desire to dominate the games. through the game. Gasperini made me learn everything – Juric closed, who yesterday delivered his statements on the eve of Turin Channel -, it is thanks to him that I am what I am, professionally but also on a human level. also made it clear how I have to behave: I will thank him for my whole life. Playing against him is a great stimulus “.
