Second step of the 5 v 5 + goalkeepers series, which is often the second phase of a training session. The goal is to answer some questions I often ask myself, preparing the workouts:
How to work on directed possessions games? How to make the game situations different? How to coach the fast and direct possession of the ball and the attack of the depth, keeping the balance among attacking and defending players?
The basic structure is a rectangle with regular goals and divided into 3 areas; two goal areas and one center one.
This second phase where active 3 v 2 + goalkeepers duels are played in the final third of the opponents, works on fast and pressure-free build up from the back (2 against 0), on the finsihing stage of the moves (3 v 2 and the goalkeepers) and on counterattacks if the ball is won by the defenders or saved by the goalkeepers.
