Bilbao Attacking Phase

bilbao intro

Athletic Bilbao in the attacking phase:

The tactical analysis includes 232 diagrams and is about Bielsaʼs side Athletic Club in the attacking phase. Bielsa is perhaps the most attack-minded coach and according to Guardiolaʼs statement one of the best coaches in the world. His innovative coaching ideas helped Bilbao to become a team which played attacking football based on high tempo, fluidity and a lot of off the ball movement. Bilbao reached the Europe League final as well as the Copa del Rey final during season 2011-12. The analysis is accompanied by 5 complete training sessions, 15 drills and SSG which are designed to help coaches to train their teams in order to apply Bielsaʼs tactics.


The phase includes:


  • Retaining balance in midfield during the build-up play
  • Retaining the balance at the back during the build-up play
  • Building up from the back
  • The build-up play on the right, on the left and through the centre
  • Creating and exploiting free space on the flanks and in the centre
  • Outnumbering the opposition
  • Using the third man’s run
  • Awareness and decision making
