Defending from the front – 4-3-3 versus a flat 4-4-2

Defending from the front in 4-3-3 versus a flat 4-4-2

Here is a session and examples of how teams should defend tactically from the front versus a flat 4-4-2 when playing in a 4-3-3. Defending is a numbers game. When playing a 4-3-3 you have more numbers in midfield and it when pressing high its important that the forwards work hard to force them inside. Here is a session to train defenders showing inside and not allowing the opposition to use the width to exploit space.

Key Words: Press, Curve your run, Delay, Show inside, Cover, Support. Ball side Goal side, Stay connected.

Players should be looking for the Visual Q’s when to react.
