Oliver Glasner’s preferred formation

3-4-2-1

Glasner tends to use a 3-4-2-1 with wingbacks. In the first few games, Glasner played Frankfurt in a back four, just like his 4-3-3 at Wolfsburg as well but things did not go well, so he reverted his side to a back three system that succeeded.

In the offensive organizations, their key players were Daichi Kamada and Filip Kostić. Both were the regular starters who played on the left side, and this was the flank that became the main source of threat and the 3-4-3 or 3-4-2-1 formation had two 6s, which allowed Schlappekicker to play with a 3-2 structure in the construction phases proceed the ball forward.

The PPDA of Frankfurt in Bundesliga was 9.63, ranking 7th in the league and shows they would press high but the engagement line was not too high, they only did that on occasions. Glasner’s pressing was not about man-man, instead, his side defended with the focus of closing spaces in the centre.
