41% Ball possession is actually the Lowest Ball possession Since Van Gaal Came here ( which means we never had 41% Ball possession with LvG because the coach today was Jonker)
Under Louis Van Gaal , we only had 1 Game under 50% Ball possession
This Season our Ball possession Average = 60%
Our Pass Accuracy average this season = 84%
but our Pass Accuracy this match =76%
WE HAD MUCH LESS POSSESSION AND PASS ACCURACY today than with Louis Van Gaal , but we won A BIG WIN and played amazingly good , Why ?
1-Long Passes , we gave 22 Long passes in 45 minutes , SOMETHING THAT WE NEVER HAVE DONE BEFORE WITH VAN GAAL
2-one-one pressing and play instead of the LVG Strict Possession Football , main Example for that : Thomas Mueller had 33 ball contacts in the first half and 26 tackles !!!!!! (26 tackles and 33 Ball contacts , DAMN)
3- we played with more Risk , Example : Thomas Mueller gave 2 assists even though his pass accuracy was only 62% (something that LvG BANS PLAYERS FOR
4-Compact Defensive especially in First Half : Van Buyten Finished the first half with 100% in tackling (won all tackles) , and Leverkusen had zero shots on us in first half
5-Effectiveness : First half , Only 3 Shots , 4 Goals !!!
