2021/22 Belgian First Division A Project

Ben Griffis will be undertaking a tactics project in the 2021/22 season. He has set a goal of analyzing many Belgian First Division A games, culminating in a tactical review of several clubs at the end of the season.

This page acts as the landing page for each post, so that readers can easily navigate to any match analyzed as part of this project. It will be updated every time a new article is posted, but the articles will also be posted on the home page and in our index of articles.

Ben will incorporate other sources on teams from Belgium to get a broader view on teams he is unable to watch as often, since he will be limited in available matches by ESPN’s US coverage (they show 3 matches per round). At the end of the season, Ben will write a tactical profile of each team he has enough information on.
