Welcome to a multi-part megathread about Thomas Tuchel and his tactics. With stern restrictions on usage of CL footage and a huge gulf in player quality with most Ligue 1 opponents, I chose to focus on Dortmund instead of PSG. I analyzed 12 Dortmund games between 2015 and 2017.

Sir Alex Ferguson famously said: Attacks win you games, defences win you titles. The hallmark of any strong European side is a strong defensive foundation, one that doesn't just eliminate danger, but anticipates it as well. So how do Tuchel's sides set up at the back?

Famously versatile, Tuchel used six formations at Dortmund. 4-3-3, 4-1-4-1, 4-2-3-1 (4 atb), 3-4-2-1, 3-2-4-1 and 3-4-3 (3 atb.) This allowed him to set up defensively for specific threats; for instance he went 3 atb vs Bayern's triple threat of Lewandowski, Muller, Ribery.

Structure - 3 atb:

In 3-1-4-2 and 3-4-3, Tuchel likes his CBs to excel at one or more of 3 essential roles, offering a more balanced way of negating threats. At Dortmund, he had 3 very good CBs that excelled at one or more of these "roles."
