If the opponent refuses to engage them, then the holding midfielder has space to turn and pick his passing options. Often times, if the opponent is pressing in an unsystematic manner, the midfielder can play a first-time pass to the full-back who then has acres of space to carry the ball.
When faced with a low block who refuse to cede space in the central areas, Labbadia uses an innovative technique.
The concept of achieving numerical superiority is key behind this plan. The full-back — almost always the left-sided Roussillon — moves into midfield to overload the opposing midfielder.
This opens up space for his teammates, which is then exploited via a line-breaking pass or a through ball. Their almost resembles a in that case, with the centre-backs, the defensive midfielder, and fullbacks holding their positions while the advanced midfielders and forwards are concerned with creating chances.
This is not uncommon at Manchester City where the structure sometimes ends up resembling two blocks of five players each — one tasked with attacking and the other tasked with regaining possession and providing support.
Indeed, many principles of attacking football used by Labbadia are also ones used by Pep Guardiola. Wolfsburg are ranked first in the Bundesliga in playing long balls.
This is no mean feat considering teams like Bayern Munich also play a style of football which requires them to play diagonal balls to find their wingers in 1v1 situations.
In Weghorst, they have an excellent target man, who can win long balls and hold up play. Brekalo or Admir Mehmedi especially benefit from this, as they can make use of the holes left in the defence when the centre-backs follow Weghorst.
Weghorst can then play them in, or lay the ball off to a midfielder who can then dribble past himself. Most of their long balls are diagonals played by the centre backs Brooks or Knoche to the wingers or full-backs who occupy wide areas.
As mentioned earlier, Wolfsburg usually are very keen on pushing their midfielders high up the pitch. Although, a risky style of play, it has its benefits.
Off the ball, the midfielders usually occupy the half-spaces. It further has the additional benefit of attracting the opposition midfielders.
This gives the Wolfsburg defenders time and space to pick out their passes or venture ahead with the ball themselves. The midfielders also sometimes stay right on the shoulder of the opposition centre backs, almost becoming false forwards.
This overloads their last line and creates spaces for through balls. It also creates spaces on the flanks. If, for instance, Arnold occupies the channel between the centre back and full back, it attracts both of them infield which opens up space for Roussillon.
Another change brought about by Labbadia has been the focus on pressing out-of-possession and counter-pressing. To understand the effect that the new management has had on Wolfsburg in just a short span of time, we could look at their PPDA numbers.
Their PPDA numbers were the highest among all of the other clubs. However, this season their rank has significantly improved and they now sit in fifth position.
This is an immense change in style and could very well be one of the reasons for their success. Wolfsburg usually sit off when the goalkeeper or the centre-backs have the ball.
They act on certain triggers and its then that we can see the work put into improving this area of their play out of possession. They maintain compactness in the middle and try to force their opponent to shift the ball out wide.
Once the centre back passes the ball to the fullback, the winger rushes in to close him down. Seeing no forward option, when the fullback passes backwards, the striker then closes him down at speed.
The centre back can only clear it or pass it backwards. In case the opponent is successful in playing through the press, Wolfsburg fall into their defensive shape.
During transitions, Wolfsburg hold a high line. Wolfsburg defend in a as it naturally transitions from their The coaching staff wanted to let the players know of the decision personally and we chose to do that before the international break.
Now we're focusing on putting our all into the final games of the season to finish the campaign successfully.
Managing Director Jörg Schmadtke: "The timing of Bruno Labbadia's decision surprised us because we wanted to have the planned open-ended discussion we had agreed on.
