Physical Game Phases

Get an insight into the physical demands of the different phases of play. This feature distinguishes four different game phases based on tracking data.

  1. Attacking

  2. Transition from Attacking to Defending

  3. Defending

  4. Transition from Defending to Attacking

For each game phase, the meters covered in different speed zones are displayed. Within this feature, the following zones are being used with the corresponding colors:

How to get the most out of the feature?

Find the feature within the "Match Center" -> "Physical Report".

Select the match you want to review in the top right corner. The last 5 matches of the selected team will be displayed in the left graph. Next to the multi match comparison, the four game phases within the selected match can be reviewed. Compare the team's performance between the different phases of play or compare the performance of both teams during the game phases. The opponent's values can be toggled on and off by the button on the right.

Teams are always compared during the same time frames. Meaning, when looking at the "Attacking" phase, the selected team is Attacking and the other team is automatically Defending. Within the graph, you will see the physical performance of team A (Attacking) vs team B (Defending) during the same timestamps. This allows a one-on-one comparison between both teams.

Navigate to Physical Performance Details (bottom right) to find the Physical Match Summary, Team, and Player overviews.


Physical Game Phases - Player

Next to the team (field players) averages, the player tab allows you to analyse the physical effort of each player within the different game phases.

With the dropdown on the right, you can switch between Total Distance (average meters per minute) or Intensity (percentage of meters above 20km/h relative to the total distance).
