The offensive transition in a soccer game is one of the most crucial and unbalanced moments. Attacking accurately and practicing the offensive tactics that each coach defines for the games is central to the team’s good performance.
There are several types and forms of offensive transition. Each team can vary its use depending on the opponent it faces. The coach and players need to prepare as much as possible for the different offensive transitions to define the characteristic form of a team game.
To help coaches prepare training sessions in the best possible way, focused on the offensive sector of the team, we have prepared a new video with attacking exercises.
