Post-match analysis is one the most important analysis processes. By reviewing performance data and match footage in depth, analysts can gain deep insights into a match and its result. These insights help coaches to make the most of strengths and address weaknesses in performance. Post-match analysis helps teams work out how to win.
Drawing on the expertise of analysts from the Premier League, the WSL and the Championship, this module shows you how the professionals analyse a match. You’ll find out what they look for, the tools they use, and how they present their findings to the coaching staff.
Along the way, an interactive exercise gives you the chance to identify why your team is struggling to score. The course rounds off with an in-depth look at a post-match report, based on a real report drawn up by a Premier League analyst.
This module is CPD accredited.
