Arsenal FC Training Exercise - Rondo 5v3 + Transition 3v2



๐ŸŽฅ Arsenal FC training exercise by head coach Mikel Arteta.


๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿซ The exercise has an initial rondo structure of 5:3 with a transition into a 3:2 overload situation in attack. After so many passes, the team in possession can connect with one of the two attackers. This player must then lay-off the ball with a third-man creating a 3:2 scenario in attack.


๐Ÿ“ To implement a variation - once the attacking team finishes the play, the goalkeeper plays the ball to the team who has just defended and counterattack in a 5v4 situation the other direction.


๐ŸŽฏ These types of rondo exercises with transitions into more complex situations are very interesting. They allow the players to understand the game patterns in smaller cooperation/oppositions scenarios before progressing into larger group-play or team-play exercises.
