    Barcelona off the ball movement



    Very intelligent style of playing, this is the kind of tactics more teams need to educate themselves with.

    From those clips, I would say more teams need to learn off the ball defending! Let's face it, when Messi is able to draw 4 guys to him, you're going to get open spaces/open players. I'm sure most teams know these tactics and try to employ them to an extent, but how many of them have a squad as skilled as Barca's to execute it consistently and at such a high level? Not many I would say.

    Yeah Barca has the best players in the world, but things like bringing the sweeper back and opening up the wings for the CB's... not a lot of teams do that which leaves 4 defenders just standing there waiting for an attack.
