3v1 - Counter attack (25 mins)

Counter Attacking

Organisation - Group on the left make 5 passes then attack the defender 3 vs 1. To encourage passing and moving tell the players "no standing, no walking" when making the 5 passes.

Progression: Group on the right have to make 5 passes with a defender in the zone before attacking the defender 3 vs 1. To begin the defender is restricted to the area. To progress the defender makes a recovery run to make in 3 vs 2 in favour of the attackers.

After each go one of the attackers will rotate with a defender.

Further progressions. Limit players to 2 touch in order to move the ball quickly.

Challenge the players to score within 8 seconds of breaking out.

Learning Objectives Team - Counter Attacking. Quick. Direct. Can we use the width to clear the defender out to then exploit the space.

Learning Objectives Individual - Can your first touch take you forwards? If not can we pass forwards? Do not go backwards. Play passes to teammates into the space infront of them rather than to feet in order to penetrate quick.

SSG - Counter attack - 5v5 (20 mins)

SSG - Counter attacking

Teams are 5v5 with 2 players that have to stay in their slected half. The 2 players highlighted in the image above have the ability to go in either half. Once the ball is transferred into the attacking half the Magic Men must make a forward run to support the attackers to try and take advantage of the 3 v 2 before the recovering magic man of the other team comes back to defend.

- Could add a delay for the defending teams Magic man to recover allowing the other team a few seconds to try and take advantage of the overload. ( 5-10 Secs - Judge on the night & team )

Speed of thought and action is essential for successful counter attacks. It's vital that counter attacking teams use the few seconds that they have before the opponents can reorganize into their defensive shape.

Barca vs Bayern - SSG (25 mins)

Organisation - Pitch must have a clear halfway line, split into 2 equal teams. 1 team plays as Barca ( Possession ) the other as Bayern ( Counter Attack ). Normal game with the following conditions.

1. Barca - to score they have to have every player in the oppositions half and must complete 5 passes before attempting to score.

2. Bayern - must have 2 target players in the opposition half at all times, score by remaining players winning the ball back and playing into target men and scoring in the goal. Once ball is played into target men all other players can go into that half.

Play 4 x 5 min games swapping each team and player roles.

P = Target players can not score but have to combine and wait to set up a player doing a forward run.

Can Barca use their overload advantage to keep possession and score a goal ?

Can Bayern counter attack quickly and punish Barca for not being organised ?
