Last Saturday, Montreal beat Toronto FC 4-2 in the opening game, which surprised many people. On Saturday, he will have to provide some form of confirmation by visiting Nashville SC.
However, when you dig deeper, you will realize that Nashville tried its best to take it away without success.
It is true that Nashville occupies the ball position, but in particular it has taken 31 shots, including 13 shots. And this is likely to happen again on Saturday.
Wilfried Nancy, who won his first professional game last week, expected a hungry opponent to try a lot of offenses.
“They will try to make a lot of crosses and get a lot of shots.”
For this reason, he hopes that the team’s reaction will be jaw-dropping, and his soldiers will not be static when confined to the defensive area.
“I don’t want our team to stay in front of us. We also want to attack, cross and shoot.”
In other words, Nancy wants a combative team to deal with equally combative opponents.
“We will remain combative without the ball, and we will strive to better control the pace of the game.”
“You have to be more aggressive with the ball rack. If we start backing up, they will double the number of shots.”
For the Montreal coach, everything depends on the face, especially for a team that likes to put pressure on. Therefore, he does not want his team to collapse.
In the first season of MLS, Nashville swaggered and ranked seventh in the Eastern Conference.
