Great stuff over at StatsBomb on defending.

They put defensive statistics into context, eventually looking at tackles and interceptions per game relative to opponents’ possession.

There appear to be two types of teams: teams that put pressure on the man, going for tackles; and teams that go for the ball, and intercepting passes.

Guess which we are?

Neither.

As I keep saying – this isn’t about Berbatov, it’s defending.
