◉ Some build-up methods adopted by Real Sociedad 433 earlier this season when faced Roger Schmidt's PSV in 4231
[short tactical thread]
#UEL Image
◉ Involving GK in the build-up

This usually forced PSV to commit their CAM alongside the CF to press Sociedad GK + CBs, and one CM to jump on the DM. as a consequence, PSV 2 CMs are underloaded in the center as well as their right winger being in a dilemma out wide Image
When their CAM stayed with Sociedad DM, PSV LW tried to press the RCB + LB=> RB. Here GK with a long distribution to Isak (CF) positioned on the left HS while being surrounded by a W, CM, even the RB for a 2nd ball chance.
◉ Winger clear it for CF. otherwise, he receives freely Image
◉ Wall passes

As PSV's 1-1 were one on the DM while the other pressures the CB, wall passes were aimed at the far CB. However, the DM could be found on some occasions due to having some distance with his marker. Image
◉ Finding the CF between the lines

This was achieved thanks to Sociedad CMs smart movements to open up passing lanes in between the lines. The action after could be combined with lay-offs or even turning to drive it forward. ImageImage
◉ 3151

DM between the CBs, one CM to drop while the other to stay up. FBs high = wingers could be found in half-spaces. Image

How can you analyze an opposing team's defensive line? [Thread] Image
Out of possession:

◉ Do they stay in a low block or do they go higher up to press?

◉ Until which point in the field can their advanced defensive line reach?

◉ After that direct play to their teammates in the front, do they immediately go higher too? Or they don't?
◉ Is their defensive positioning deep? Meaning if they are too close to each other or they leave spaces between them to cover wide spaces?

◉ Their ability to win Aerial duels?

◉ Do they find difficulties in 1v1 situations?

◉ Do they use the offside trap?

◉ Man City final third chance creation patterns [Tactical thread]

PS: ( I hired Leicester groundsmen )

◉ Wide triangles as starting forms to circulate
◉ Half-space runs

The runs I am about to show you (including this) have been performed after having a sequence of passes + switching the point of attack, why? Simply to disorganize PSG's last 2 lines as Pochettino had 3 def mids in the 2nd to track these kinds of runs.
