The long awaited study of Jose Mourinho’s tactics is finally here with an extensive analysis of his Real Madrid team’s 4-2-3-1 formation.

You can now see a full analysis of Real Madrid’s attacking tactics which have been so important to their success. They scored 121 goals in La Liga and this book shows Real’s 4-2-3-1 system of play, each player’s responsibilities, positioning and movement within every possible phase of play.

The attacking phase was key for Real Madrid and the main features were creating width, maintaining superiority in numbers around the ball zone, long diagonal passes, in/out swinging crosses from the flank and Ronaldo’s efficiency in front of goal.

Real Madrid won the La Liga title, beating Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona team, one of the most successful club sides in history, by 9 points.

Both Attacking and Defending books starts with the characteristics of the players and builds into a comprehensive overview of the attacking and defensive tactics employed with clear diagrams and detailed descriptions.
