Video Analysis: Combination Play

Combination play in the final third is a hugely effective tool of many of the best teams in the world. Regular PDP contributor and top coach, Dan Wright breaks down the key movements, types of passes and decision making by some of the best in the business in this first class video analysis on combination play. 


See the likes of Barcelona, Tottenham, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Liverpool & Bayern Munich demonstrate exactly what it takes to break down an opponent with effective passing, receiving and combinations to create chances. Importantly, take time to focus on the movement and positional play away from the ball that leads to chances to score. The next challenge for you is to break down what you see and create real scenarios within your training so that your players can develop the technical and decision-making skills to carry out effective combinations in possession. Check out Dan’s website for more of his excellent tactical analysis.
