Bayer Leverkusen - Three Team Possession 8:8+6

🎥 Training Exercise - Three Team Possession 8:8+6

🧑‍🏫 Three team possession exercise by Bayer Leverkusen head coach - Xabi Alonso. The positioning of the players is key (note the outside support they provide). The six neutral players (green) provide inside play as well as depth.

When there is a change in possession, notice the transition/s that occur. It is important to quickly react and counterpress before the other team can re-position themselves. It is also crucial that the team that recovers the ball quickly plays it out of the active zone.

🎯 Positional understanding

🎯 Inside play

🎯 Forward play

🎯 Counterpressing
