Analysis Of Latin Style

  1. 1. Juan Luis Delgado, MSc.<br />Latin football style:<br />Understanding football as a “Tactical Game”<br />
  2. 2. Latin football style:<br />-Greatest Exponents: Spain, Argentina and Portugal. <br />-“Tiki-Taka”: uncompromising passing game, coupled with intense and high pressing. It is "a significant upgrade" of Total Football because it relies on ball movement rather than players switching position. It allows to "control both the ball and the opponent“ . <br />-Training philosophy: Concentrated on “teaching tactical concepts and improving technique and conditioning while playing”. <br />-Player profile. The main thing the scouts look for is that the children make decisions differently from everybody else (“Speed of thought”). <br />Juan Luis Delgado, MSc.<br />
  3. 3. Latin Football Style (Main features)<br />1. High percentage of Ball Possession and Quick Ball Circulation.<br />2. Defensive Organization that determines completely the opponent (High pressure). <br />Juan Luis Delgado, MSc.<br />
  4. 4. Juan Luis Delgado, MSc.<br />Main Characteristics:<br />3. “Quick Breaks-Transitions”: Defense/Attack and Attack/Defense to take advantage from the opponent’s disorganization.<br />4. System of Play (1-4-3-3) with a large number of lines (7), lateral and longitudinal, both offensively and defensively (“several triangles”).<br />Juan Luis Delgado, MSc.<br />
  5. 5. 1. Offensive Characteristics:<br />Possession and ball circulation. <br />Disrupt and unbalance the opponent's defense. Using the following game principles :<br />• Open space - open passing lines, both in width and depth.<br />• Identification of the Moment of Disruption (spaces created).<br />• Entry of the ball at the Moment of Disruption (in the spaces created).<br />• "Timing of Finishing” – (right time)<br />• “Finishing Zones” - proper occupation of specific areas (right space).<br />Juan Luis Delgado, MSc.<br />
  6. 6. 1. Offensive Characteristics:<br /><ul><li>Building up from the Back.
  7. 7. Building up after trans. Def. / Attack:</li></ul>• Permanent change corridors of play. <br />• Changes in circulation in width and depth.<br />• Mobility with varied rhythms of runs. <br />• Variation between short and long passes.<br />• Changes on the speed of the ball<br />Juan Luis Delgado, MSc.<br />
  8. 8. 2. Defensive Characteristics: <br />Pressurizing (“3 stages”)<br />Positional Collective Organization:<br />• Close space width and depth.• Coverage of the ball zone, near and far.<br />2. "They run the adversary“ to play where they want to regain the ball (Side or Central Corridor).<br />3. Collectively pressurizing the opponent to force his mistake.<br />
  9. 9. 3. Transition defense – attack<br />• Fast change of attitude (defensive-offensive)<br />• Open lines of pass in width and depth.<br />• If possible play forwardto exploit the opponent's defensive disorder , but without risking the ball. If not, ensure possession to start the offensive phase.<br />
  10. 10. 4. Transition attack – defense<br />Disruption of the opposing team's to regain ball possession or to organize defensively.<br />1. Pressure To Win The Ball:<br />• Changing attitude from offensive to defensive. • Create pressure zone - immediately press the ball and the nearest space to win the ball. • Do not allow deep-forward passes.<br />2. Pressure For Organization (“Delay”):<br />• Continuous pressure on the ball to win enough time to get compact (width and depth).<br />3. Start Defensive Organization:<br />• Be well positioned and compact to start defensive organization.<br />Juan Luis Delgado, MSc.<br />
  11. 11. 5. Why they use the 1-4-3-3 in 7 lines?<br />Defensively <br /><ul><li>Allows a large positional and organizational balance, both offensive and defensive.
  12. 12. Allows to enhance quick transitions both attack and defense-attack-defense.
  13. 13. Allows to play collectively even without high tactical and technical quality.</li></ul>Juan Luis Delgado, MSc.<br />

  15. 15. 5. Why they use the 1-4-3-3 in 7 lines?<br />Defensively <br /><ul><li>Allows high pressure effectively under constant coverage (different lines).
  16. 16. Allows to be well positioned / balanced to do a quick transition after regaining the ball or to starts offensive organization.</li></ul>Juan Luis Delgado, MSc.<br />

  18. 18. 5. Why they use the 1-4-3-3 in 7 lines?<br />Offensively<br /><ul><li>Is an structure that allows a well-balanced positional organization
  19. 19. Allows for good circulation: many diagonals and triangles.
  20. 20. Allows to have a great range of space, both in width </li></ul>and depth.<br />Juan Luis Delgado, MSc.<br />
