Small Sided Game: 3 vs. 3 +1 +2 – Create Pressure, Prevent Counterattacks

Get the ball back away from the ball

Procedure: In the field, three against three are played, with a neutral player inside the field and two passing stations on the sidelines. After a ball loss, the neutral player inside the field temporarily takes on a defensive role. After gaining possession of the ball, the aim is to find one of the passing stations on the sidelines, which leads to a duel. The player from the team that lost the ball is allowed to try to intercept the pass.

Coaching points: Particularly in situations away from the ball, interesting game scenarios arise. The players must continuously assess whether they need to make themselves unplayable for a moment or if a ball loss is realistic in order to secure ball possession.
