FTC Rail Cargo Hungria – CSM Bucuresti 31:30 (20:16)

match analysis

15/11/2021

Itana Grbić scored the winning goal in the last seconds of the match.
Could CSM Bucuresti have avoided a situation where the final result depends on this shot?
What could coach Adrian Vasile have done during the match to help his team avoid this situation?
How could HE:App help him to make better decisions?
Adrian has the most faith in Cristina Neagu – Elizabeth Omoregie – Emilie Arntzen’s 9m players line-up and while they played, the team was efficient. They scored 22 goals from 38 attempts (58%).

The problem arose when “B” combinations of back players played.
What is interesting is the exceptional efficiency of the line-up: Cristina Neagu – Emilie Arntzen – Andrea Klikovac. The efficiency of the team was extremely good in the first half 4/5 (80%), and the total was 5/7 (71%).
Unfortunately, they played only 7 attacks together, while the line-ups with other “B” combinations of back players had an overall performance of 3/10 (30%).
Now we can’t know if CSM would have won the match if the successful “B” combination played 10 possessions more than the “A” combination, but we’re sure they would have played a lot more possessions if Adrian had known this data during the match.
Another interesting feature of this match is the pivot effect.
Ema Ramusović did not score a single goal 0/2, and Yvette Broch scored 4 with an exceptional realization of 4/4.

What’s interesting is the comparison of the team’s performance depending on which of the two played.
When Ramusović played, the team had a performance of 7/10 (70%), and when they played Broch 23/45 (51%).

This is very difficult to see from the bench and none of the coaches would keep in a game a pivot who misses and on the bench the one who scores everything.
For coaches, it would be a great help if during the match we could have data that would make it easier to decide how efficient the team is when one pivot plays, and how efficient is when another pivot plays.
In the end, the team that scores more goals wins, regardless of who scores and who helps in some “invisible” way.
