4 v 4 Attack v Defence | Defend in Defending Third (03-P1)

Updated: Nov 10

In this half-pitch defensive soccer drill, we focus on our attacking 4 players against a back 4 in the defending third.



Our coach will play a ball into one of the front players, with their challenge to create effective angles to move defenders around and break into the box to finish.


The back 4 must remain compact and look to regain possession to finish in one of two mini-goals as shown.

Focus on communication between players and recognise when to press and cover as a unit.


If you have 2 coaches, ensure one coach manages each team to provide challenges for attackers and defenders, setting individual and unit challenges throughout.
