Real Madrid CF - Defensive Organization Collective Pressing

Real Madrid CF - Defensive Organization Collective Pressing

If the team is positioned in a high defensive block and implementing man-marking all over the pitch, it is crucial that every defensive player identifies and is in proximity (or tightly marking) their individual assignment (pressure point).

It only takes one player to lose sight of their marking for this defensive approach to be broken and played through. Defensive organization, constant communication, and individual duels are key for this tactical approach to be successful.

If performed successfully - it will be difficult for the opposing team to possess the ball and move forward up the pitch. Provoking the error while defending forward, recovering the ball, and quickly counterattacking are common cyclical patterns with this approach.
