Situational | PG 5v5+5

Session Set Up:

  • 5v5+5 in a 3-4-3 formation where the neutral players will be CB 4, CM 6, CM 8, FB 3 & FB 2.
  • The goal of the game is to keep the possession of the ball (1-2 touches) attracting the opposition to one side and releasing the pressure by means of switching the play (FB receiving in the weak side can receive outside of the field in order to go wider).
  • If the black team gains the ball back, switch positions with white team.

Coaching Points:

  • Support the ball holder offering a pass to his right and left side, inner and outer lane (triangles).
  • LB & RB goes wide in order to challenge opponent's compactness while pressing.
  • Accurate body angle and first touch-oriented control to facilitate the circulation of the ball.
  • Internalize the idea of playing through the CM in order to switch the play (non-horizontal passes). CM on the weak side gains another height meanwhile (picture CM 6) on the side of the ball supports the buildup (picture CM 8).

Progression:

  • To score a goal, ST 9, W 7 or W 11 has to receive a pass behind the end line. After this, game continues.

Situational | 3-4-3 Build up rondo 3v3+2 (switching play)

Session Set Up:

  • 1-3-4-3 Build up rondo 3v3+2 alternating sides.
  • CB will drop to the small area to build up from the back. Depending on what side he chooses (example left side shown in picture), CB 5 goes wide and FB 3 drops to a reasonable distance to support the play. In the other side FB 2 gains height ready to participate when his team switches the play.
  • CM 6 & W 7 drop to support the build up and start the Rondo 3v3+2 (see triangles). From this moment, black players become active. ST 9 can only participate to drop the ball for the CM who appears as free man to switch the play.
  • After they completed a minimum of 5 passes, attacking team try to switch the play through a long ball to FB 2 who dribbles the gate. If black team gains the ball, they try to finish in either one of the mini goals.

Coaching Points:

  • Support the ball holder offering a pass to his right and left side, inner and outer lane (triangles).
  • W 7 constantly creates a line of pass to break the pressure through the inside. ST 9 floats always having the ball as reference.
  • Accurate body angle and first touch-oriented control to facilitate the circulation of the ball.
  • Internalize the idea of playing through the CM in order to switch the play (non-horizontal passes).

Progression:

  • Build up (Z1) situations 11v0 / 11v5 in 1/2 field: after goal kick / after throw-in in own field / after pressure in the midfield (all the situations end after switching play to the weak side, connecting with the FB).
  • CM 8 & W 11 interchange positions in the weak side (CM 8 gains height regarding CM 6, while W 11 takes his position).
