Why does it happen that you go down to 10 men and you raise your game? How does that work?
Think it's a 2 way thing - suddenly there's a pressure on the team with 11 to finish the job, whilst the team with 10 suddenly get an extra fight within then. Often, anyway. So 10 v 11 isn't quite as straightforward as you'd think (unless there's a big gap in class)

You know you have to put in extra work to compensate for the lost man. And perhaps there's an element of perspective - it seeming better, because the team with 11 think they don't have to bust a gut because they've got the extra man.

We did not get enough credit beating Ajax two times from the media because they're having a downer season. Marseille and AEK have both failed to beat them and they're still decent

It's interesting that being reduced to 10 often makes little difference or actually improves a team's performance - but being reduced to 9 is an absolute killer blow.
