Activation Rondo | 5 v 2s (06-P2)

Updated: Nov 10

Practice 2 of theme six defensive compactness is played in a 30 by 15-yard area, beginning with a 5 v 2 overload Rondo in one half of the practice area.



The aim of the two defenders here is to regain possession and switch play to 3 awaiting teammates, becoming the passing team.


2 attackers then become defenders, switching grids to press as a pair to regain possession for their team.

Key Coaching Points 1. Manage possession to create space

2. Challenge defenders to remain compact (distances and angles to be constantly checked)

Player Questions

How can defenders position themselves as a pair to make penetrating passes through as difficult as possible?


Progression

Players must perform rotational play and defenders must practice forcing the opposition in the direction they want.
