The Aubameyang Show

Highlights from the 6-2 victory over Bayer Leverkusen during the first match of the rückrunde.

Originally, this match was a 3-0 victory, but after my laptop shut down, I had to replay the match! Happy with the result to say the least. Aubameyang was on fire.

 

Tactically, I had made changes during the winter break to try and accomodate Aubameyangs pace up front. Going into the game, he was my top goal scorer, but I felt we were struggling to utilise his main asset. I switched his role to poacher, and asked the team to play out wide, where early crosses would be played into Aubameyang, who would (hopefully) out run his defenders. Now, not all of his 4 goals in this game are that type, but the first certainly is!

In terms of this game, it was rather crazy. We dominated the first 45, going in 2-0 up at half time. Within 10 minutes of the second half, Leverkusen had drawn level. Instantly we got a third, and from then on, it was a goal rush.
