How Luka Modric and Angel Di Maria can shine in Real Madrid’s 4-2-3-1 [Tactical video]
Last week, we featured a video that showed how without Sami Khedira, it looks like 4-2-3-1 is best suited for Real Madrid & their players.
Spanish pundit Axel Torres also produced another video after Real Madrid’s 4-0 rout of Real Valladolid that proves how Luka Modric and Angel Di Maria can also excel in this system.
Granted, it was against a side who failed to test Los Blancos’ defence but it is good to see some strong tactical analysis (with English subtitles) and something not on Gareth Bale, after his perfect hat-trick in this game.
Luka Modric is probably not first choice in Carlo Ancelotti’s new system but he can adapt and produced a calm and creative performance alongside Xabi Alonso.
Angel Di Maria was excellent, in Cristiano Ronaldo’s position. Ostensibly because when he receives the ball on the left, he doesn’t need to cut back in and can make first-time crosses, passes and shots.
As a result, he sped up the game and created a lot of chances…
