Creating and exploiting space with the 3-5-2 formation (An Antonio Conte’s Juventus case study)

Presenter: Athanasios Terzis

This presentation provides an analysis of how a team that uses the 3-5-2 formation can create and exploit gaps in the opposition’s defensive line. The specific formation can be used in order to drag defenders out of position and create space in specific areas. This space can be exploited by certain players and in different ways. However if space is not created the players who take part in the situation have other alternative options. The presentation will be supported by video analysis and animation as well as animated drills.
