Pasting from another thread:

The more I think about EDF's approach, the more I'm convinced he tried to have it both ways: Press them and attack (to get the away goal) while slowing the tempo enough to stymie Liverpool's attack and keep the scoreline respectable. Bold, naive, and utterly disastrous.

Reminds me too much of Allegri's approach in that 2nd leg against Real. Italian managers are often fatally pragmatic this way in that they want to do just enough to get through and never go beyond that. It's elegant and prudent when it works, but either falls far too short or ends in disaster when it doesn't.
