Real Madrid CF - Diamond High Press

🎥 Real Madrid CF - Diamond High Press

🧑‍🏫 Real Madrid played their first La Liga match this season against Athletic Club Bilbao while implementing a new formation: 1-4-4-2 (Diamond). Playing out of a diamond provides numbers and strength in the middle channel, making it difficult for opponents to possess the ball in the inside spaces. Here we have a situation where we can analyze how they press high out of a diamond:

🧐 Vinicius and Rodrygo, the two forwards pressing Bilbaos center-backs.

🧐 Camavinga is required to press in the outside channel and close down the full-back.

🧐 Bellingham and Valverde pick up the two Bilbao holding midfielders.

🧐 Tchouaméni marks Bilbaos Nº10


⚖️ Always have +1 in the back
