1. Red team set up in a 3-3 formation defending counter goals and attacking regulation goal.

2. Blue team starts with 1-4-2, defending regulation goal and attacking counter goals.

3. After set time, layer in two wide midfielders and target player for blue (see progressions).

4. Free play. Restarts: from blue GK if ball goes out on blue or throw-ins if off red.

Coaching Points:

1. Committment to pressing - press with numbers.

2. Three forwards - establish high line of confrontation.

3. Three midfielders - movement to remain tigh/compact both vertically and horizontally.

4. Communication - early, brief, concise, and urgent.

5. Moments to double team.

6. Moments to drop off - GK has ball in hands, space available in behind.

7. Look to force mistake, square ball, and/or predictable play.


1. Add the 7 and the 11 to the blue team.

2. Add the target player (the 9/10) to the blue team.
