Weaken the opponent’s defense!

It is increasingly important to develop the finishing ability of a team.

Currently, there are several teams with defensive walls, practically invincibles and, for this same reason, it is extremely important that the opponent’s offensive sectors are able to overcome these difficulties by creating spaces, danger and scoring goals.

It is usual to keep in mind that the maximum exponent of a team with a good finishing game is the number of goals scored by it. And it is not entirely wrong to think that way. However, to score goals it is necessary to weaken the defense and break with the defensive formations, and that is the great secret of a good finishing game.

To help you prepare training sessions focused on finishing, we have prepared a new video with finishing exercises.
