Set-piece analysis: Ternana Calcio offensive corners

It’s a been a few days since I wrote the set-piece analysis, but today I’m writing another one. Today my eye turns toward Italy. The Serie C to be precise. In this set-piece analysis I will look at Ternana Calcio’s attacking corners in the Serie C of 2020-2021.

The Serie C is divided in several groups and Ternana Calcio is divided into group A. This season has been extremely fruitful for them as they have been promoted and will play in the Serie B in the 2021-2022 season, which will be quite the challenge. In this analysis I will look closely to their successful attacking corner routines, which proved vital in some phases of their games.

Ternana Calcio vs Bari

In the video above you can see Ternana in their game against Bari. The corner is taken from the right from a left-footed player, meaning the ball will swing in the penalty area. The ball will go towards the six-yard box, because of it. This means that the positioning of the runners will be closer to goal.

Bari has a one zonal player structure and he stays on the front post. In the penalty are we see that Bari plays man-marking which means that every player from Ternana is marked by a player from Bari. In the six-yard box we see three players of Ternana and on the penalty spot we see three players from Ternana as well, who are occupied with making runs into the six-yard box. On the right side we a player just inside the penalty area and just outside the penalty area, we see another player.

As soon as the ball is kicked we see movement from the players in the six-yard box to the front post. At the same time we see that the three runners break into a 2-1 formation, with one player joining the players at the front post – while the other two players are making a run to the far post. In the end the ball comes to the player at the far post and he scores.

Ternana Calcio vs Calcio Foggia

In the video above we see Ternana in their game against Foggia. The corner is taken from the right from a left-footed player, meaning the ball will swing in the penalty area. The ball will go towards the six-yard box, because of it. This means that the positioning of the runners will be closer to goal.

Foggia has a two player zonal structure (the video has a typo). We see one player of Ternana in the six-yard box and one player outside the penalty area who is tasked with the cleared balls and the rest-defence. Ternana has five runners who all attempt to make runs into the six-yard box as soon as the ball is taken.

When the ball is kicked we see that the five runners all move forward, but not one of them goes to the same position as the other one. The ball is delivered into the front post and one of those five runners goes to that specific area, beats his marker and scores a header to give Ternana another goal.

Ternana Calcio vs Paganese Calcio 1926

In the video above we see Ternana in their game against Paganese. The ball is taken from the right from a right-footed player, meaning the ball will swing out towards the area between the six-yard box and the penalty spot. The position of the runners is a bit more conservative because of this.

Paganese has a two player zonal structure . We see one player of Ternana in the six-yard box and one player outside the penalty area who is tasked with the rest-defence or cleared balls. Inside the penalty area we see five runners from Ternana who will try to attack the outswinging ball.

The ball is played just outside the six-yard box and the man-marking means that Ternana needs to time their runs correctly. What they do in the deep far post zone is that they lure defenders to the far post, which creates more space in the central zones to attack the ball. The ball goes to the central zone and the header results in a goal.

Ternana Calcio vs SS Juve Stabia

In the video above we see Ternana in their game against Juve Stabia. The corner is taken from the right from a left-footed player, meaning the ball will swing in the penalty area. The ball will go towards the six-yard box, because of it. This means that the positioning of the runners will be closer to goal.

Juve Stabia has a six player zonal structure . We see one player of Ternana in the six-yard box and one player outside the penalty area who is tasked with the rest-defence or cleared balls. Inside the penalty area we see four runners from Ternana who will try to attack the inswinging ball.

As soon as the ball is kicked we see one player going past the front post, moving closer to the corner. This confuses some of the defenders and then another play creeps in the spot at the front post. Those two players combine to score the goal as the player closest to the corner flicks the ball to the front post, after which the other play can score the goal at the front post.
