SV Academy: Xabi Alonso’s Possession-Play-Revolution

We want to take a look at the team of the moment in a two-hour seminar at the Academy. What makes Bayer so strong and how can their style of play be classified in regard to tactical theory and history?

Leverkusen are top of the Bundesliga table and we want to look in detail at what Xabi Alonso puts on the pitch there.

With an attacking system that relies on very short distances between players rather than maximising space, a major paradigm shift may also be involved. Furthermore, the elements of the team harmonise fantastically and are catalysed by the exceptional Florian Wirtz.

Here is the preliminary chapter overview for the seminar:

  1. Leverkusen’s unpredictability (comparison with Bayern, City, Barca)
  2. Small distances instead of big spaces
  3. Player analysis Florian Wirtz
  4. Decisive details
  5. Leverkusen’s defensive stability
