Blue Lock Chapter 222 Recap: Snuffy Takes Control

The latest chapter of Blue Lock, Chapter 222, starts with Hiori being amazed at the rapid formation of Noa and Snuffy. Barou comments that Snuffy has finally come to play. As the match resumes, Snuffy passes the ball, and Barou charges forward to make an attack. Ubers passes the ball around quickly, and Isagi notices a change in the team’s dynamics.

Isagi tries to intercept the ball, but Snuffy surprises him by taking over possession. The following panel shows Noa and Snuffy going head-to-head. Noa rushes towards Snuffy to defend, but Snuffy quickly passes the ball to Nico and takes back possession. Snuffy then spots Barou running towards the ball and executes a through ball towards him.

King Barou takes the shot, but Kaiser and Isagi manage to block it. The ball hangs in the air, and everyone watches its trajectory. Finally, it lands directly in Snuffy’s control, and he skillfully prepares to launch another attack for his team.

Blue Lock Chapter 223 Predictions

In my opinion, there is a chance that BM may lose this game despite being ahead, and then go on to win against PxG. The synergy among Snuffy and his team is remarkable and could potentially overcome the individual strengths of the BM team. Snuffy has made several plans to break down BM, and they are barely holding on.

From a narrative standpoint, it would make sense for Kaiser and Isagi’s bet to end in a draw, which could be continued in the PxG game, the supposed final game in the NEL arc. Furthermore, if Isagi loses to Rin again at this point, it may seem repetitive, considering that Kaiser is supposed to be his direct rival. On the other hand, it does not make sense for BM to win every game.

There has been a lot of talk about Noel Noa being the best striker in Blue Lock world. However, some people in the sub have mentioned that Snuffy could be stronger than Noa. I look forward to seeing Snuffy beat Noa in a one-on-one because, from what I have seen so far, Snuffy is clearly better than Noa.
