Hungarian OTP Bank Liga: Diosgyor - Videoton

OTP Bank Liga

Diosgyor is playing poor in the spring. They started the season against relegation threatened Eger, and only won 1-0 in a tight match, then played 1-1 against Haladas at home ground, where Luque scored their goal from free kick, and last weekend lost 2-0 against championship leader Gyor. They have no creativity in the offensive line, and at back they are vulnerable. They couldn't score a goal and this is a huge problem. The strikers in the squad are all out of from. They have a talented squad but the results could not go. Coach Szentes Lazar is a bad trainer, he don't understand the modern football, his tactic is old and ineffective. The other important thing, that Diosgyor's squad is small, consist of 17 player.

Videoton is one of the best hungarian club. They changed their coach during the winter break: Paulo Sousa went and Jose Gomes arrived. Sousa was a defensive minded coach, while Gomes's creed is attacking. The squad is totally the same, but they are playing much better. Videoton's formation is still 4-2-3-1, with two defensive midfielders, three attacking midfielders (1 playmaker and two fast winger) and 1 power-striker. Coach Jose Gomes lets his players to attack more. With Paulo Sousa the defensive midfielders had only defensive function, Sousa forbaded them to attack, but under Jose they take part in the attacking too. They played against Eger (4-0), Siofok (6-0), and Budapesti Honved (4-0) in this year.


Videoton is in better shape now, with the new coach Jose Gomes they are playing an attractive-attacking style and their defense are still working well. The other reason the qway win is that Diosgyor have important missings! They are playing also a 4-2-3-1 formation and they have 4 defensive midfielders in the squad: Csirkszi Martin has long-term injury, Elek Akos and Takacs Akos are suspended, while Mohamad Abdouraman is injuried with his knees. So Diosgyor has no defensive midfielders in their squad! Without this position they will be death against a team, who have the strongest midfield-play in the league!
