Munchen vs Madrid Passing Distribution

Munchen vs Madrid Passing Distribution

Didn’t watch the match, but have been reading how Toni Kroos played an important role in the match. Based on the graph, he IS quiet central for Munchen in the match.

Some notes:

  1. Why were there so many passes by Alonso to both central defenders Ramos and Pepe?
  2. Centrao-Arbeola and Alaba-Lahm have similar passing distribution towards their central defenders (backward pass), but see how they differ in terms of forward passes.

Preview: Netherlands vs Spain

with 3 comments



Few notes:

  • This match may be more tightly contested than Spain vs Germany. This is because Netherlands, unlike Germany, does not have an over reliance towards a single player (like Schweinsteiger in Germany). So, it might be tougher for Spain to dominate the possession like it did against Germany.
  • On another note, Netherlands past view goals have been due to Sneijder’s geniuses. So, if Spain can take care of Sneijder, Netherlands possibility to score should be minimized.
