Fifth exercise of the series on 1 v 1 duels entirely developed on the rhombus.
With this exercise we work deeper on decision-making principles and on the reaction speed of the players to understand the role of attacker or defender during the development of the exercise.
- Where to receive the ball (be unmarked)
- Attack the opponent directly, or look for a shore (fixed only)
The principles of individual transition when the possession is recovered become important also in this variation, as the player is asked to play differently according to the phases of the exercise, in which the ball is recovered or lost:
- Alternation of 1 v 1 front duels and off the ball (the defender can try to intercept)
- The first step of possession, during the positive transition, is to make it safe, passing to a wide support player to save the possession before attacking
