I am an avid soccer fan with background playing, refereeing, coaching, and of course watching soccer. I looking at the tactical approach teams take to games and love to dive into statistics that help explain the beautiful game.

What tactics and game plan will we see from the Claret and Cobalt in their first game of the 2019 season?
Which players showed well, and which players had a night to forget?
