Video Tactical Analysis: Real Madrid 2-2 Borussia Dortmund

Check out our video analysis on yesterday's Champions League game!

Posted by Managing Madrid on Thursday, December 8, 2016

Real Madrid’s 2-2 draw with Borussia Dortmund was a stunning encounter that displayed several intriguing tactical battles. One of them was something that both Los Blancos and Dortmund had to deal with - the fight to play the ball through opposition presses.

The success of each team’s build-up against high pressure, came down to key press-resistant individuals who proved to be game-changers.

This match also featured an intense see-saw like characteristic, that saw control of possession continually swing from side to side, as both teams battled to dominate the game at strategically important points.

This tactical flux, select player performances, and more bits and bobs, are all analyzed in the embedded video above.


This is the first time I have ever attempted video analysis. I would greatly appreciate as much constructive criticism as the community can manage down in the comments. I hope you enjoy it.
