hi and welcome back to football made simple and we are back with another tactical analysis as two of europe's finest faced off in the champions league as real madrid hosted liverpool it was a difficult tie to call as shown by your voting on the poll put out before the match but in the end it was real madrid who came out on top thanks to a double by vinicius and an ascencio girl walsalla got the away goal for liverpool the xg indicated that real did create
00:32
more across the 90 1.93 to 0.79 but what tactics did zidane and club use let's take a look first a reminder of their tactics as both managers used 433s as you can see on screen now courtesy of our wonderful sponsor the one football app one football is the best football app to keep up with your favorite teams and players giving you news stats match updates and so much more absolutely free through the link in the description below
01:02
let's start with what real did on the ball as they were more dominant generally in the first half liverpool did not press as high up the pitch they would use a high block but not necessarily look to win the ball higher up particularly from goal kicks but as the match went on liverpool did press more and more and looked to filter the ball out to real's right hand side particularly to vasquez who they would then look to press aggressively they did this as when the centre-backs had the ball salah would look to press early from wide
01:38
before mane who tended to push ahead of jota looked to press his man this would often mean that only three options would be back to courtois but most often vasquez who liverpool would then press the stats reflect this with vasquez seeing a lot of the ball the second most in fact for real madrid and higher up the pitch liverpool consistently used a similar shape with both sala and marni pressing quite narrow whilst madrid's full backs pushed higher up for pitch
02:12
and this was the route of many of liverpool's problems in prior seasons when they have used this narrow pressing shape the wingers would press from out to in making sure that the passing lane into the four backs was also cut this didn't happen in this match and on either side real time and again easily found their full backs down the right this would be vasquez and as a result the midfield and entire team in general would have to
02:47
shift across to cover and the pressing shape would create even bigger problems for the red a salad didn't tend to track back even once the first line of pressure was bypassed vinicius would move into the half space on the left taking trent in centrally with him whilst furlon mendy was quick to move high up the pitch this constant 2 vs 1 throughout the 90 meant that trent struggled vasquez from here would then have the time and space to attempt the switch into mendy and he attempted 10 long balls throughout the 90 only bettered by
03:19
courtois and mili tao and once mandy received the ball he and vinicius combine wild throughout the 90 to get to the byline to look for crosses or to cut infield to look for shots whilst constantly rotating their positions and real madrid rarely attacked through the center as using width and side overloads allow them to exploit liverpool's narrow shape well we saw similar patterns when they built down the left but as mendy tended to push higher than vasquez on the right it would be crows who would move into
03:58
this region to then look to switch it out to vasquez once asensio moved more central but when rial did build more centrally cross was once again the key casimiro tended to push higher up to allow modric and cruz to handle the build up from deep as they are excellent on the ball and crows often dropped just ahead of his center backs to create a 3 vs 2 against a narrow press and to be the outlet board to beat this press and real in these phases could look to push casamaro and the inverted wingers
04:37
between the lines which would force liverpool's own midfielders deeper was the real fallbacks advanced and this meant that crows would have room with which to dictate the play both short and long and the first goal has elements of this on full display crosses drop deep and as we can see liverpool use a high block but without applying pressure to the man on the ball the inverted wingers and modric in this case are between the lines forcing the reds midfield deep mendy is high meaning that trent is caught in two
05:08
mines so you can't get too tight to vinicius you can then make the run and finish well but let's look at what liverpool did when they were in possession liverpool looked to build short when possible to the centre-backs and early on in the match riya were high presses this was invariably a 442 shape with either modric or crows joining benzema and this was a match where the small details made the difference when modric pressed he would almost always get his angles right cutting off the route into fabinho and
05:39
as we discussed liverpool's own presses were not able to do that this meant that the fullbacks often had to start much deeper to provide the outlet in this phase and madrid in this aggressive press could then have their wide man press and the second midfielder make it difficult for liverpool to play back infield so they effectively boxed in the fullback liverpool did look to build with a midfield 2-1 with the second pivot providing a new angle but as mentioned real were not afraid to commit an extra man
06:28
liverpool's third midfielder would often be high between the lines and marnie also tended to move narrow almost into a ten roll and perhaps with a more penetrative passer at centre-back they could have found these men in dangerous positions between the lines and liverpool did look better in the second half and part of that was actually applying pressure when defending but another part was thiago coming on who allowed the fallbacks to move higher and wider earlier as he would move into the pseudo-right back role in the up we should allow them both higher as they
07:03
now had a back three the knock-on effect was allowing the fords to move more narrow to get on the end of crosses which they almost did on a couple of occasions and when there were turnovers so many men central meant they could more effectively counterpress real's influential midfield three but it was to no avail overall real madrid were excellent on the night earning a well-deserved win however the away goal for liverpool means that the second leg will be interesting as they are far from out of the tie but
