The World Cup is a tactical contest. In the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the four-back was the trend. Of the 32 teams, 24 teams brought out a four-back. Even among four backs, the 4-3-3 formation was the trend among the trend. Fourteen teams, including Argentina and France, who reached the final, used this tactic. Bentoho also succeeded in advancing to the round of 16 for the first time in 12 years based on a four-back.
The long comma ends. The K-League 1 finally kicks off on the 25th. It will become clearer when the lid is opened, but the dominant prospect is that the 2023 season will also be a two-final system between Ulsan Hyundai and Jeonbuk Hyundai. After quenching, each team prepared a variety of colors. The biggest concern is, of course, tactics.
But there are variables. With the first winter World Cup in history, the ‘vacation’ was longer than any other year. The K-League 1 ended on October 23 last year. In the case of 2021, it was a month earlier compared to the final round played on the first weekend of December.
The K-League 1, which opens a new season in four months, is also said to be a watershed at the beginning of the league. It is the voice of the field that the condition of each player varies greatly. If you do too much, you may be exposed to injury스포츠토토. Kangwon coach Choi Yong-soo predicted, “I think the beginning of this season will be a variable. Each team has issues related to team management. In the end, the team that hits from the beginning can have an advantage.”
That’s why I pay more attention to the ‘managed system’. Four-back, three-back, those numbers contain the leader’s philosophy and team’s unique style. Is it because of the power imbalance? In the K-League this season, the wind of a three-back is blowing strong again. Seven out of 12 teams in the first division adopted the three-back as their main formation. Incheon, Jeju, and Gangwon, which traditionally used a three-back, as well as Suwon FC, Daegu, and Gwangju and Daejeon, which were promoted to the first division this season, are armed with 3-4-3 and 3-5-2. The three-back is a defensive tactic. When defending, both wing-backs join the defense to form a 5-back.
Survival is a hot topic for teams that are classified as lower ranked. Even mid-tier teams can draw a bigger picture once they endure. There is a double line that will not be a victim of victory points with stable tactics.
The three-back is not the exclusive property of mid-lower teams. Ulsan and Jeonbuk use four-backs, such as 4-2-3-1 and 4-3-3, respectively, but are tinkering with three-backs as well. Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo, who tested the three-back during field training in Portugal, said, “Among the three-back, there is a perfect form, and there is a variation, but we are thinking of a tactical transformation.” The modified three-back is a plan that puts more weight on offense, not defense. Jeong Tae-wook, a new blood transfusion in Jeonbuk-do, is a resource who was very familiar with three-back in Daegu, so he is known to have anomalies in mind and experiment.
Four-back is the keyword for Pohang and supermatch rivals Seoul and Suwon Samsung. Pohang and Suwon plan to use the 4-2-3-1 card and Seoul the 4-1-4-1 card.
Football is a sport of 11 people. Fierce fighting takes place on the ground for 90 minutes. The team that can use various tactics depending on the opponent can eventually be the last winner. The showdown between the benches of both teams is a special spectacle.
