Concerning the number of high-speed runs (21.1.-24.0 km/h), CM ( p < 0.01; η 2 = 0.031), EM ( p < 0.05; η 2 = 0.041) and F ( p < 0.05; η 2 = 0.024) from Real Madrid performed less efforts than the opposing team (10.7 v. 21.1, 25.0 v. 28.1 and 19.9 v. 22.0). Additionally, there were no differences for ED and F players ( Figure 1 ).

Association Between Match Activity Variables, Measures of Fatigue and Neuromuscular Performance Capacity Following Elite Competitive Soccer Matches

, measures of fatigue and neuromuscular performance capacity were classified according: <0.1 trivial, 0.1 to 0.3 small, 0.3 to 0.5 moderate, 0.5 to 0.7 large, 0.7 to 0.9 very large, and 0.9 to 1.0 almost perfect ( Hopkins, 2000 ). Confidence intervals (95%) and effect sizes were also calculated. Statistical analyses were performed using the statistical package for social sciences version 23.0 (SPSS, Inc., Chicago, IL, USA). Acceptable level of significance was set at p < 0.05. Results Serum CK activity ( Figure 1 ) was significantly higher post-match and 40 h

There were significant differences between serve games and return games in terms of VO 2 (t= 50.907; p < 0.05; small ES: 0.38; 95%CI: 2.01 to 2.17) and HR (t= 54.619; p < 0.05; small ES: 0.43; 95%CI: 7.51 to 8.07). Significant differences were also found between the serve games and return games in terms of %HR max (42.461; p < 0.05; medium ES: 0.73; 95%CI: 3.61 to 3.96), RPE (t= 6.806; p < 0.05; small ES: 0.36; 95%CI: 0.82 to 1.43) and EE (t= 10.526; p < 0.05; medium ES: 0.58; 95%CI: 20.33 to
