Spain Vs Russia Forum Info VideoSpain vs Russia Highlights 1-1 (3-4) English Commentary
Attacking in the half-spaces can cause problems for opponents. Secondly, players occupying the half-spaces have access to both the centre and the wing.
With multiple options as to where they can pass or dribble, it can be tougher to shut them down. Russia, however, denied these spaces to Spain not only through their choice of system, but through their defensive movements.
Their shape meant that when Spain looked to combine through the half-spaces, they were faced with at least three defenders — the nearest Russian wing-back, central midfielder, and winger.
An example of this is seen below. As discussed earlier, Russia shifted intensely from side to side to deny space at every opportunity and, when the wingers and wing-backs moved out to press, they were supported by a line of cover behind them.
This meant the Spanish full-backs and attacking midfielders could not simply play diagonal passes into the centre to bypass the pressure they faced.
While their defensive approach was mostly zonal, Russia did employ some man-marking, with Dzyuba tasked with tracking Sergio Busquets.
