# Advanced 1v1 Training - Part Two

## CHAPTER 2

Exercises with ball for improvement in passing the opposite player and achievement of the spaces

1 VS 1 GAME "ACHIEVE THE SPACE"

Area Size:
Different geometric shapes (square, rectangle) depending on the focus. Vary the width or length size depending on the age and technical quality of the players.

Time:
10-15 minutes

Objectives:
• To create the space
• To run fast in the space created
• Movement of the players related to the opposite player
• Just a little bit of fitness work involving change of direction
• Ball mastery during a duel

Execution:
This exercise is about the ability to create space while possessing the ball, in relation to the decision of the defender and the goal's location.

The striker has to achieve the space behind the defender, but if the defender wins the ball, the defender has to dribble over the line behind the striker.

The difficulty increases because now the striker has to also manage the ball.

It is important to play a very fast game (so 10-15 minute max, related to age of the player and area size).

5th OPTION
This exercise is the same exercise I proposed without the ball.
We already know what has changed putting the ball in the game.
The striker has to cross over two lines to score the point; if a defender wins the ball, the point is scored by the yellow team.

6th OPTION
This exercise is the same exercise I proposed without the ball.
We already know what has changed putting the ball in the game.
The striker has to cross three lines to score the point; if a defender wins the ball, a point is scored by the yellow team.
An additional concern for the striker in the third space: he has to choose where to play based on his favorite foot (to be more comfortable in being able to dribble over the last line).
