Nope. Pep's change of tactics had less to do with Lyon and more to do with the profile of the players he had faith in for that game.

The bottomline is Pep's most relatable players are not the fastest sprinters so he had to adjust his formation to mitigate that weakness. when deploying the Rodrigo, Gundogan plus KDB, in a track meet, they will struggle especially with unreliable CBs behind them.


I think you should listen to his interview after the game...


“What we have done is try to cover our weak points,” Guardiola explained on BT Sport. “And also comparing to their strong points.

“They attack the channels really well and I didn’t want to leave them. That’s why.
“We then unblocked our respect a bit, we struggled initially, but in the same shape we attacked well.


... because he did not have players that could match them up in terms of physical attributes unlike Bayern Munich that doesn't have to adjust due to their superior quality physically and talent wise. Pep is not alone by the way but when another manager (like Lampard) did the same - switching to 343 - due to shortfall of players meeting the profile needed for the task, you turn a blind eye ... But if it's Pep, it makes a helluva sense :lol:


Bro, leave this Lampard issue...

You have agreed with me Pep had reason to adjust his tactics, contrary to popular media punditry...

That is all. You can continue your Lampard defence on the chelsea thread...

Ekambi not up to this level...

Fresh from the class of the 90s, all leg, no brain.


To be fair, Ekambi has had some inspiring moments in this years competition.
He just had a very rough game.

Interesting from a comically entertaining perspective perhaps. No goals in the contest, 2 goals all season. Shaun Goater, Jason Lee, Philomen Masinga. Same cloth.

VAR is useless. How they moved along like that Countinho goal wasn't well onside is straight up foul :lol:

It is offside. A 2nd Bayern player slightly touched the ball with extended shin.

Game set match. Lyon just ran completely out of steam.

PSG v Bayern is setting up to be a real cracker between 2 great teams.

In many ways, this game came down to finishing, duly recognizing the difference in quality of personnel.

Lyon's exposed a lot of things for Tuchel and PSG to chew on...

But you gotta admire the power of Munich. That might be what gives them the edge...

And their experience. They always looked like they had an extra gear to go to today and never looked flustered when under pressure.

Anything can happen on Sunday, but Bayern have to remain favorites to win it all.

Pep is not the Barcelona coach, but City's, a direct rival of Liverpool.

One of the many threats Bayern posed, the kind of variety City did not have when they needed options.

Power and pace.

Unlike English teams they can also play.
