You will learn a different way to analyze football!
This online course will allow you to delve deep into the MBP Scouting model and the functioning and use of professional Scouting. You will do it through challenges and game mechanics (gamification) and a story that will put you in the shoes of a junior scout recently arrived to a professional team. In short, you will have access to all the contents of the in-person program in a comfortable, attractive and motivating way: you will learn how to know the existing types of Scouting and identify both the player
analysis elements, individually, and the team, as well as all the keys to create a total report of the opponent.
In particular, you will know cutting-edge analysis technological tools and will learn how to use one of them to gather, order and interpret information according to methodological patterns and confront the competition in both your team and your rival’s analysis. All of it
autonomously but also sharing what you learn with the community and the MBP teachers.
Ultimately, in this course you’ll know the basis of game analysis and gathering information from competitions to make coherent and effective decisions later.

Delving into general and specific aspects of soccer.
Autonomously and working as a team.
¡Congratulations! You have just signed as a junior scout at MBP. We are eight matches away from the finals and we need your help to achieve our goal. We know it’s not going to be easy and we need to work hard to make it, but with everyone’s effort we will succeed!
During these eight matches you will learn the functioning and use of professional Scouting. To do it, you’ll have to go through the different phases that form this learning process: studying the theory in the locker room, putting it into practice during the training session, carrying out what you have learned during the match and, in the end, sharing it in the press conference.
We’ll know Scouting and its functions, we’ll see MBP’s approach in particular and we’ll identify the different types of analysis.
We will explore concepts such as official call and the game system, we’ll study the players according to their position and we’ll take a first step into the dynamic analysis of the team.
In this module we’ll analyze the attack phase in its three sub-phases: start, building up and finishing.
Here we’ll know in depth the defensive phase: analyzing the three types of defensive block and the defense of direct game.
We’ll delve into both transitions from attack to defense and from defense to attack.
We’ll analyze the strategy of different set pieces: corner kicks, free kicks, throw-ins and penalty kicks.
To complete the course, you’ll have to do, individually, the analysis of two matches played by professional teams. You will have to analyze the structure and the dynamics, the different game phases and, finally, the strategy. To do it, you’ll use a video analysis program, one of the most important tools for professional scouts.
