Awesome Tip: Arrigo Sacchi – '3v2'
3v2 – 3 Backs vs 2 Forwards
This exercise gets the Forwards used to sacrifice himself’s in the careful job of carrying the action started by the opposing defenders.
2 Forwards counter 3 opposing Backs in a 30x15m rectangle placed in the center of one half of the field.
The game is not restricted to a fix number of maximum touches.
The aim is to train the Forwards to intercept the ball and to shoot at goal or at least to make the Backs start the action along the sides.
The Forwards score a point when they intercept the ball and score into the free goal.
The Backs score a point when, keeping the ball or by dribbling, they pass the end zone of the rectangle.
Action outside the side limits is not considered valid.
