When entering into the world of performance analysis there is a structured way of starting off your journey to understand the reasons why you use performance analysis and how you use it. Professional clubs need these analysts and we will show you how to get the best out of all the main analytical tools used behind the scenes. We will show you the importance of game analysis to help you understand its internal logic, not only how your team played within the game, but also the opponent’s main characteristics in strengths and weaknesses.
