Analysis

Old-fаshioned 4-4-2 system thаt emphаsized effort аnd efficiency over entertаinment. Fast and wide direct counter using both flanks to quick distribution with pressing forwards and central midfilders flow into final third.

Ranieri wants his defenders and forwards operating in close area and a high line that would compress the playable area of the pitch to his team’s advantage. Out of possession leaving little space for opponents to play centrally and force them outside.
