Later, Burger was subbed out for Vente, and El Bouchataoui dropped back to partner Skogen in central defense.
Pluses: Skogen looks useful at RCB. Hopefully, Slot will carry him with the first team. Big guy, who seemed to be comfortable on the ball.
Minuses: Only one or two decent crosses in the entire match. What is the point of playing 4-3-3 if the wingers or wing backs never put in crosses? Maybe we should play 5-3-2, and let the wing backs (Malacia and Pedersen) fly forward more often to put in crosses for two strikers. With 3 central defenders, we could afford to be more offensive with the wing backs. Pedersen went forward a couple of times and looked dangerous in doing so. I don't see the point of two wide wingers if they only pass back into the crowded middle.
