At Previous Tip of the the importance of analyzing the opposite against which your team plays as to improve those same aspects in your own team.
We told you that dedicating all your time to analyzing the opponent against whom you play two games a year would stop you from making your players and teams improve in those same aspects that you analyzed about the opponent.
Once we assume that you have drawn your own conclusions on this aspect, we want to delve into other aspects of this soccer activity.
And that is what we should pay attention to when we observe the opposite or your own team.
It is evident that we should analyze the actions of the opponent that are more decisive and give him more value, that on the one hand and on the other the defects he has and how we can take advantage of him.
But…. What are the variables that give the opponent the most advantage?
What are the main flaws of the adversary?
