After four weeks of work in the preseason, the Atlético Nacional undertook the Liga II-2019 showing a new face under the direction of Juan Carlos Osorio, who started his second cycle as coach of the team & # 39; Verdolaga & # 39 ;.
First time Nacional showed a style of play with possession, dynamics and intensity of play. The variants that were made depending on the game situations. With men like Baldomero Perlaza and Daniel Bocanegra, the Nacional started its attack and also limited the work of men like Johan Carbonero and Javier Reina. Alberto Costa went into action and with his disturbed rhythm changes behind Caldas once.
Vladimir Hernández on the left and Jarlan Barrera were the extremes. The work of the Araucanian was brilliant, to the point of making a goal in the first minute, when he exercised a change of pace after a deep ball from goalkeeper José Cuadrado, Hernán Barcos was important when it came to dragging signs . In fact, the Argentine takes Andres Correa and that is facilitated to Hernandez who can take advantage of a spoiled rejection of Carlos Pájaro and a pair of scissors, score.
A couple of shots from the rival in the first half was what disturbed the "green" behind. Also in this case, as in the first cycle of Osorio, Alexis Henríquez, making the shots from the defense, generated offensive opportunities.
Constantly, the Nacional has made triangulations from the midfield forward. Although in the complementary phase he suffered the wear and the men like & # 39; Tino & # 39; Costa and Baldomero Perlaza did not have the same performance. That's why Osorio decides to put Yerson Candelo, delaying Jarlan and entering Pablo Ceppelini for Baldomero.
These movements came into effect only in the last few minutes, when Once Caldas was worn down, after having tied the score and after having wasted a penalty.
The "verdolagas" regained control of the game and in the end were effective using the medium distance, a weapon that they tried to use in the first half and in the second they reached with the Uruguayan Ceppelini.
To improve: the physical appearance of the team, about 70 minutes wear was noted, losing duels in midfield, suffer the passages in depth and make mistakes in the passages. According to what the coach wants, having an athletic team able to maintain the intensity.
