Does the lack of crowds change the style of football?

It probably makes the players more relaxed, I'm sure...

No, it changes the energy and makes it easier for the visitors without the crowd noise but it doesn't change the style of play.

Within reason you would expect away teams to be far less intimidated going to places like Anfield, Elland Road, the Etihad and Old Trafford etc. It doesn't necessarily change the style of the football itself but certainly the confidence levels may be higher than usual for away teams as that partisan element is now obsolete for the time being. Sad to say that, with all the vulnerable people around the world, a cautious approach is the only way forward as, to be brutally honest, when you realise just how much many of the victims suffer there is no excuse under the sun for large numbers of people putting others at risk by holding illegal gatherings and that very much includes protests about the lockdowns.
It's a ... our fun v other people's suffering scenario unfortunately.
And it is a no brainer.

Yeah, home teams are far more comfortable being defensive without the fans there to get on their back, the big clubs are just faced with extreme bus parking nearly every week.

Crime rates in the immediate neighborhoods have probably plummeted.
