Defensive shape 7 v 7 (60 mins)

Blue defensive shape.

 

Starting position of 1. 3,6,5,& 7 are a compact, defensive unit across the halfway line. Time & distance between them is ok but the threat is the ball over the defensive line in to the space behind as they have no depth.

Blue 8 & 9 offer high press in the white defensive third.

Trigger movement of blue 9 ,7, 5, 6 & 3. Maintaining the time & distance between them. 6 now offers depth to negate the lofted pass in to blue defensive third. 1 retreats.

Blue 7 & 9 combine to put pressure on the white 11 from both sides.

Blue 5 & 9 combine to put pressure on white 10 from both sides.

Blue try to force the play in field from white left flank to central areas and in to traffic.

White 2 is too wide to pose a threat at the moment. Blue 8 recovers to close the space vacated by blue 3.

Time & distance between blue 7,5,3 & 6 is maintained but now with depth. Cover & balance.
