๐ŸŽฅ Training Exercise - Positional Play 5:5+4 (Build-Up Specific)

๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿซ Positional play exercise by Roberto De Zerbi designed specifically to work on playing the ball out from the back. In this situation, the two teams of five (white and black) are positioned with the center-backs, two holding midfielders and the number ten. The goalkeepers (green) are also in their natural positions and act as neutral players for the team in possession. Finally, the two fullbacks (yellow), also act as neutral players.

The objective is to keep possession of the ball and connect from one goalkeeper to another. Maintaining the correct positional occupation, playing with the third-man when possible to find passing lanes and progress, and finally, playing one/two touch whenever possible to accelerate the speed of play.
