AS ROMA 2-0 Real Sociedad – Tactical Analysis

Roma were superior to Real Sociedad in a match in which Mourinho’s side scored a great goal to open the scoring.


The play starts with Diego Rico in possession, Karsdorp beats him and recovers the ball.

Real Sociedad tries to get 2 players to press Karsdorp but they are too far away, the Dutchman sees Dybala free and gives him a pass that starts the attacking transition.

Dybala carries the ball for many meters until Le Normand comes out to try to prevent him from moving forward. The space left by Le Normand is attacked by Tammy Abraham who receives the pass. Zubeldia becomes the striker’s defender and Gorosabel has to decide where he can be most useful to his team inside the box.

His decision is to stay in the center of the box without defending any player, making the mistake of not seeing El Shaarawy who comes running down the left flank.

Tammy Abraham makes a great maneuver to dribble Zubeldia and puts in a cross for El Shaarawy to finish for the goal.

Perfect counterattack in 14 seconds with 12 touches for Roma’s victory.
