D1. Attack from the wing position – an attacker without ball on the wing

Attack from the wing position

D1

In this unit, as the animation implies, an attacker moves on the wing. The attacker controlling the ball is in the center of the field.

Once the attacker is in zone 1, defender A monitors his paths and covers closely. Defender B (located somewhat deeper) blocks the path of the pass, in order to prevent a pass into the back space of the dynamic attacker. Defenders C and D are aligned with defender A.

If the attacker is in zone 4, defender D controls his paths and covers closely. Defender C (located somewhat deeper) blocks the path of the pass, in order to prevent a pass to the dynamic attacker.

Defenders A and B are aligned with defender D.

D2. Attack in center – an attacker without ball in the center

Attack in center

D2

In this unit, as implied by the animation, an attacker moves in the defense center. The attacker who controls the ball is in the center of the field.

If the attacker is in zone 2, defender B controls his paths and covers closely. Defender C (standing slightly deeper) blocks the path of the pass, in order to prevent a pass into the back space of the dynamic attacker.

Defenders A and D are aligned with defender B.

If the attacker is in zone 3, defender C controls his paths and covers closely. Defender B (standing slightly deeper) blocks the path of the pass, so as to prevent a pass into the back space of the dynamic attacker.

Defenders A and D are aligned with defender C.
