Reds have to try and score in the two red goals. Blues have to try and stop them/win the ball/try and score in the main goal. If blues win the ball then they have only 10 seconds to score (quick transition to push session topic).
(When ball is with CB) Closest striker puts pressure on the CB while the other striker gets into a position where the bal can’t be passed into the CMs and close enough to the other CB to put immediate pressure/steal the ball.
(When ball is with FB) Cloest striker puts presure via a curved run to block off the pass backwards to the CB (forcing the play down the line/into players). Furthest striker drops into prevent the pass into the middle of the pitch/CMs.
