When Xande goes for the o goshi, he needs his opponent at the proper angle in order to throw him. He likes to set this up by sweeping at the foot and faking that he wants to throw him toward his back. His opponent reacts by stepping over Xande's foot and backing up. This gives Xande the space and angle he needs to step in and finish the throw.
