Pretty awesome graphs on attack/defense of teams in Europe's top 5 leagues


Through six games.

It's an interesting insight into which teams play "attractive" football, which teams are really struggling, etc., imo. Pretty cool.

ETA: It can kind of teach you a bit about leagues you don't follow enough. Bayern have really good defense. So does Roma. They look pretty good on those graphs, actually. How are they doing anyway?

Bayern's set up is actually pretty crazy. When they have the ball, they tend to keep it for a while so it ends up looking like a 2-3-2-3

Boateng and Dante are often times passed midfield too.

The fullbacks then push up and pinch in a bit so you create a 3-man midfield behind two center mids and 3 attacking players

Alaba-Lahm-Rafinha

-Schweiny - Kroos/Müller

Robben - Müller/Mandz - Ribery


and the runs come from all over the place. If Bayern is in the mood and playing direct, it's fricking awesome to watch.

The defense comes from high pressing and never losing the ball, a lot like Barcelona but with better defenders. I'm worried how it'll work against Dortmund but it rapes against everyone else.

Thanks. At least I'm honest about my ignorance.
