Tactical Analysis Soccer Matches

The tactical analysis in soccer matches is based on making an exhaustive observation about our team or the rival, analyzing those aspects that interest us for our team. You can perform this analysis on your own team or also on the rival team, this can be done collectively or individually depending on the purpose of the analysis.

Team technical report

We focus on analyzing a rival or our team in different sections

How is the structural organization:

  • Defense of 3 (3-5-2, 3-4-3, …)
  • Defense of 4 (4-3-3,4-4-2, …)
  • Defense of 5 (5-3-2, 5-2-3, …)

This organization can vary throughout the game to change strategy to try to create more danger in the rival goal or better defend against opposing attacks.

In addition, the organization of the field is usually different if you are in the offensive or defensive phase.

You can perform this analysis on both the rival team and your own team.

Another important aspect to take into account is which behaviors are repeated more within the game.

Offensive Behaviors:

  • Analyze ball output
  • Its mechanisms of progression
  • Occupation zones under attack

Defensive behaviors:

  • High block pressure
  • Medium block pressure
  • Low Block Pressure


  • Quick fallback
  • Pressure after loss.

Resumption of the game (fouls, offsides...)

Direct play

Short game:

Looking to organize the attack

Searching long displacement

Set piece actions

We focus on which are the most decisive players of the rival on these occasions since they can give us information about what we can find on the day of the match in this type of play, and if we have to mark some players in particular when they leave perform such an action.

In addition to analyzing the type of rehearsed plays that they usually make at each moment of the game.

Player technical reports

We must evaluate the players when we have to recruit new players to join our team or to analyze them for the next game.

Analyze the most relevant characteristics of that player

  • Fast
  • Skilled
  • Technical
  • Good aerial game
  • Great physical power

These are some of the possible advantages that a player can have to later channel or filter him either for a recruitment issue or to analyze his own players
