Against High Pressing Teams

 

Learn to Coach “The Bielsa Way” – Building Up Play Against High Pressing Teams
with 9 Full Sessions (35 Practices) based on 9 Game Situations from the Tactics of Marcelo Bielsa

Marcelo Bielsa is a highly respected coach and is famous for his innovative playing style, tactics and formations. He has had a massive influence on football across the world and on other top coaches, such as Pep Guardiola, Mauricio Pochettino, Jorge Sampaoli and Gerardo Martino.

The aim of the book is to use the innovative tactics of Marcelo Bielsa to provide a complete guide of how to build up play effectively against high pressing teams.

The book includes Marcelo Bielsa’s tactics (and playing philosophy) for:

  • Building up play from the back against high pressing teams
  • Full analysis of his 4-2-3-1, 3-3-3-1 and 3-4-3 formations

Marcelo Bielsa’s attacking philosophy includes a mix of:

  • Short and long passing
  • Moving the ball to the free player through ‘link players’
  • Creating numerical advantages
  • Dragging opposition players out of position and exploiting the gaps created

To successfully build up from the back, the team in possession has to follow four steps:

  • Step 1: Provide a free passing option for the goalkeeper
  • Step 2: Move the ball to the target or free player
  • Step 3: Create a numerical advantage in specific areas of the pitch
  • Step 4: Take advantage (exploit) the numerical advantage

 

Each chapter has extensive analysis for a tactical situation based on Marcelo Bielsa’s tactics and is then followed by a full session to help all coaches adapt the tactics into training sessions for their team.

  • Chapter 1: Building Up Play from the Back Against 2 Forwards
  • Chapter 2: Moving the Ball to the Target Player on the Weak Side
  • Chapter 3: Building Up Play from the Back Against 1 Forward
  • Chapter 4: Creating and Exploiting 3 v 2 Situations Near the Sideline
  • Chapter 5: Attacking Solutions with a 3 v 3 Situation Near the Sideline
  • Chapter 6: Creating and Exploiting Space in a 4 v 3 (or 4 v 4) Situation Around the Ball Area
  • Chapter 7: Building Up Play Against Ultra-Offensive Pressing
