Blue Lock Chapter 249 will be released this weekend and fans are eager to know how the final round of Blue Lock Project will end and who will take home the trophy as the winner.
Before that, Team Z and Team V had a tight battle that ended in a draw. With little time left to change the outcome of the match, Isagi decided to take matters into his own hands and bet on Team V’s goal.
The upcoming chapter will witness the results of Isagi’s decision to score and perhaps Rin has overcome the fear of failure that he suffered because of his famous father. Will Team Z be the ultimate winner or will Team V prepare a last-minute counterattack?
The match between Team Z and Team V is still going on. Team V has Bachira, Otaya, Meguru, Sae and Reo while Team Z has Rin, Kunigami, Shindou, Isagi and Nagi. This is the final round of the Blue Lock project, so everyone is eager to take the leading position.
It was the second half of the match and the players were getting restless. With the score tied at 2-2, one of the two teams must score a goal to determine the victory. There were only ten minutes left in the match, which put pressure on both sides.
Isagi decides to make the first attack for Team Z and rushes towards Team V’s goal. Bashira quickly follows him and tries to stop Isagi from attacking. As Captain of Team V, Bashira is known to be reliable and good at defending.
However, Isagi was able to bypass his defenses with a sudden feint. Rin was chasing Isagi and rushing towards the goal so he decided to pass the ball to Rin in hopes of scoring. But just as he was about to pass the ball, he noticed that Rin was not focused on the goal.
Rin’s father was known as the “King of Strikers”, which shaped his childhood as his father was strict and very strict with Rin. Isagi saw that Rin was hesitant and not ready to receive the ball. He lost his temper and couldn’t focus on the goal.
Isagi realizes that Rin is afraid of missing the target. His complicated relationship with his father eroded his self-confidence and created a fear of failure. Rin isn’t really playing for himself but to gain his father’s approval, which puts even more of a burden on him.
Hoping to motivate his teammates, Isagi decides to score himself instead of passing the ball to Rin. He thought if Rin saw the goal with his own eyes, he would be motivated to do it himself next time.
Isagi is also under pressure to win against Team Z, so this becomes the most effective option. Getting past Rin while he was still not safe would probably be a waste of what little time they had, so he decided it would be best to aim for the target.
He also wants to be the last to attack and win the final match of Blue Locket. This will bring Isagi the fame and recognition he has been longing for.
