Wolfsburg team analysis

Wolfsburg team analysis

• Usually 1-4-4-2 with high wide midfielders and twin strikers
• Compact, disciplined defending; most ball-winning in back line
• Balance of strength, agility, aerial power, game-reading by centre-backs
• Excellent use of wings by fast wide midfielders; support from full-backs
• Two holding midfielders balancing, linking, keeping lines together
• Quick attack-to-defence transitions; pressure on ball-carrier as from midfield
• Strikers dropping cleverly between lines to receive and play to wings
• Strong centre-backs building from back or pushing with ball into midfield
• Play based on technique, pace, assured combinations in all departments
• Tactically mature team with experience, composure, winning mentality
