Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

This formation is for 7 vs. 7 soccer. Here are the pros and cons for this formation:

Pros:

  • Provides good width into the attack with #7 and #11 higher up the field.
  • #4 and #5 are in excellent central starting positions to provide pressure/cover for each other.
  • #8 has multiple options to attack with a penetrating pass (#7, #11, #9).

Cons:

  • If #7 and #11 don’t work hard up and down the field, your team can get exposed on the outside of the field as #4 and #5 will get dragged out wide.
  • If #7 and #11 don’t work hard up and down the field, #9 and #8 will lack options to play wide in the attack.
  • If playing against a team with multiple center-midfielders, #8 can get overwhelmed in defending.
