J1 vs Nagoya Grampus: Manager’s Comments

Miguel Angel Lotina


My impression was that in the first half was different from the second half. We struggled at the beginning of the first half, but we possessed the ball. Although we did not have many chances to attack, we possessed the ball and our defense had no problem. In the second half, we could not keep a ball to press. Especially, Nagoya invaded into zone 3 by their attack from the left flank. They did not create many chances but posed a threat. After they scored a goal, we pressed. However, our play was not organized enough and allowed them to score another goal.
