Montpellier team analysis

tr_attackMontpellier team analysistr_defenceMontpellier team analysis

• 1-4-4-2 with switches to back line of three when chasing result
• Ready to play through thirds or, if pressed, hit passes to strikers
• Quick transitions in both directions; aggressive pressing in midfield
• Good at narrowing the pitch to force opponents to one side
• Wide attacking also based on creating overloads on one flank
• Two rotating strikers; one dropping deep or wide to receive
• Jakobsson tirelessly working across the front line; pace and 1 v 1 skill
• One central midfielder pushing into spaces created by Jakobsson
• Fluent combination play in final third but lack of finishing power
• Well-organised tactically mature unit with strong team ethic

Jean Louis Saez (14/04/1967) head coach from 2014
