    If you wear the number 9, you need to score goals. Strikers are key to winning matches, but for them it isn’t always about simply finding the back of the net. A variety of players are now used in a number 9 role, bring different technical aspects to the role. Together with Alex Stewart and Joe Devine from Tifo Football, we take a closer look at the different style of strikers in the Bundesliga. Robert Lewandowski, Paco Alcacer, Mario Götze and Wout Weghorst all perform the role as a number 9, but they are all unique in their ways. Which position would you like us to analyse next? Let us know in the comments!

    If u playing PES, u will know that's a certain role effect to the game
    Lewandowski : Fox in the box
    Paco alcacer : goal poacher
    Goetze : false 9 (in game u will find either creative playmaker or hole player)
    Weghorst : Target man

    Bundesliga so smart to team with Tifo. It just goes to show have quick and smart the Germans are to market their league. Tifo is one of the best on the internet at the moment. I wish LaLiga had the brains to do this to promote their league and payers as well.

    All round number 9 : More like roberto firmino

    • BoxOfOranges84
      BoxOfOranges84 Month ago +1

      @celestial rex F9 literally implies that he isn't a "complete 9".
      He was originally brought in to play the 10 behind Benteke(?) and eventually Klopp created this F9 role

      Benzema linked up play is the best as a striker..firmino is false9 type..like messi

      @NaN i never said he was a striker . yes he is a false 9 but the role he plays in Liverpools build up play is more better than any other number 9 in Europe

    • NaN
      NaN Month ago +5

      Firmino is the farthest from a complete 9 you could imagine. He's a specialised false 9, and that's why, at the end of every year, he's well behind Salah and Mané in goals scored.

    With all due respect to Alcacer. He is no way near the level of Lewandowski. Lewandowski only competition in Bundesliga was Auba when he was still there. Now he is in the league of his own.

    do one on why muller is on the bench? I personally think that Muller, Thiago and Coutinho should always start( when fit of course), Tolisso is good but not as good as the other three, the same with Goretska (even though he is injured at the moment).

    • Grand Prix YT

    Selling Alcacer was the biggest mistake Barca ever made. He was the perfect replacement for Suarez and plus they wouldn't have to waste money on Griezmann and could have instead gone for De Ligt.

    I'm no fan of Bayern, but I'm a fan of Lewandowski. He's a complete world-class striker, and offers quality and consistency, something which few players can do nowadays.

  • K4 Josiah
    K4 Josiah Month ago +30

    3:46 honestly look at the work this man puts in for Bayern only to be ignored and slated by the media and fans who don't watch Bayern games and are quite frankly fake. Now he's coming off the bench for less minutes and still contributing. It bothers me deeply to see a club legend be treated so poorly.

    • Mario Lisa

      @Michael Milicic yeah, Bayern should show respect to one of their legends, plus I think he could do better than both tolisso and Coman.

    • Nasif Zaman

    • Michael Milicic
      Michael Milicic Month ago +7

      And Javi, his kids and wife we at the game, he was bluntly refused game time and was seen in tears on the bench. Both need more game time and Muller should start at least half their games

      This is the best channel by far though you may argue that they don't upload match highlights as much. This channel does in depth analysis, cartoons, player and team profiles. At least 5-6 videos per week is not an easy feat.

    Lewa is the complete striker; hold up play, PKs, excellent in the air, running at the goal, beating 1v1 defenders qnd efficient in front of the goal. He also shows up to play hard at every game...unlike the streakiness of the other strikers profiled here.
