  1. Absolute bullshit of a title. Spurs are missing half their starters and the ones playing are tired. Embarrassingly biased.

  2. This tactical analysis is pointless. Leipzig players were simply stronger, quicker and technically better than Spurs players. Whichever tactics Spurs played, if you don't have the players to take advantage, you might as well pack up and go.

  3. Mourinho had to adapt his tactics because of the injuries. Maybe with the presence of Kane and Son, Tottenham would have played with a different tactic.
    For instance, Lo Celso need not push higher up and can act as a pivot. The pace will be provided by Son and Moura, on both the wings for the long balls and Kane would hold up the ball in front. Alli won't need to drop back and instead can play between the lines where he is comfortable. Excellent Analysis!

  4. Mourinho is gonna sink their club a lot more next season. People complaining about spurs not having kane and son should remember that leipzig played without their 3 starting cb’s in the first leg and still kept a clean sheet, while spurs conceded 5 over both legs despite mourinho being negative.

  5. Very informative analysis, thanks! Leipzig had very good combinational play and past through Spurs' pressing easily. I believe Spurs wasn't quite comfortable in pressing high and that left them exposed at the back at times. It seemed like Spurs' Lb wasn't very comfortable in going forward to provide width which made it hard for them to penetrate.

  6. No, Mourinho doesn't need Kane, Son, Moura and Eriksen to organise his team defensively. Leipzig are an intense side. They move together. Tottenham are just way too loose, with too much space between their defensive and midfield lines. They don't press as a whole. They don't even try to build up some passes to "rest" a little bit. Players are scared of falling. I hope I'm wrong, but I think Mourinho is becoming somewhat irrelevant in today's football

  7. Sacking Poch was a mistake, he manage to make it to ucl final last year and also beating real madrid. While Mou couldn't even beat Leipzig…

  8. Mourinho is done. If Levy is as smart as many spurs fan want you to believe, he'll sack him and reset his club with a new upcoming manager next summer.

  9. Hey Football made simple.
    Can you please do a tactical analysis of Gasperini's tactics at Atalanta? This guy's team is insane

  10. https://pilkarska-pasja.blogspot.com/
    Myślę, że duży wpływ na odpadnięcie Tottenhamu miał brak w składzie Sona i Kane'a. Są to podstawowi piłkarze tego klubu, którzy mają dużą wartość dla tego zespołu

  11. Great vid, perfectly encapsulated the problems Spurs had all game. I feel like this ucl is going to have plenty of giant slayers and upsets

  12. I feel so sorry for spurs, i could see how hard lucas, alli and lo celso were trying to get a goal but due to some other shit players, nothing was going their way. If i was mourinho, i would have used Parrot after the half time…

  13. It's unfortunate that Spurs had lost most of their key players in attack except Moura but Leipzip deserve all the credit they played better nonetheless

  14. Superior tactics? You think Mourinho didn't know how to beat them? It's not rocket science, we lost the competition when we lost 1-0 at home, 24 hours after son got injured and after playing 4 games in 12 days.
    Btw, I would appreciate it if you make a video about the impact of high block pressing approach on the severity of injuries. I am sure that will tell us why Tottenham players got injured this year after a hard season last year.

  15. Well to be honest, to everyone saying that Spurs play like shit. Are you all suprised? No Kane, Son, Bergwijn. They don't have single one of front 3 regular starters. Take out Mane Salah and Firmino of Pool. Are they the same quality? Not even close. Other thing is that Tottenham has more problems like fullbacks and no solid DM, but lack of proper striker and 2 best goalscorers who are crucial doesn't make things easier…

  16. It just doesn't work for Spurs to go long when there's no target man in front. Their counter attack is nullified too, with the counter pressing and the fact that Leipzig's center backs dealt with Moura's pace so well. They just lacked attacking threat, while Leipzig look like scoring every time they're in final third. The midfield's also dominated all over by Leipzig. Not a Spur fan, but it was painful to watch, considering this team went heroically to the final last year.

  17. Good analysis, Tottenham's problem wasnt so much made by Leipzigs tactics, more a problem with confidence on the ball from the spurs defenders and sloppy passing into the midfield areas. This gave Leipzig the opportunity to keep on the front foot for most of the match. Leipzig pressed high but if spurs had more accuracy in short to medium passing range they would have broken through the high press numerous times and possibly been in 3 v 3 situations with Leipzigs defenders more times than they were. RB Leipzig have a great understanding and fluidity which I cannot deny and the better team won comfortably by playing the way they did. I believe Leipzig could have a very good run in the UCL. I think they could give Barcelona alot of problems tactically if they play them in the next round.

  18. this champions league night eas absolute magic, in part for this match, but for the majority thanks to Giampiero Gasperini and his ATALANTA (and Ilicic) , doing bits as a newcomer to the competition, a video about their tactics would be FANTASTIC
