First, you can see the Overload of Dortmund’s attacking wingers against a defensive line of 4 players (the opponent is defending in 4x4x2) and, in the 2 nd video, against a defensive line of 5 elements (here the opponent defends in a higher 5x2x3 and in 5x4x1, positioning themselves in a Medium Block). This is one of the dynamics that can be a solution against teams that defend with a defensive line of 5 players and that position themselves in either a Medium or a Medium-Low Blocks given that this makes more difficult to get the connection to the creation phase and from there to the finishing phase. These specific plays are from the 19/20 season.
