Pep Guardiola Possession Exercise With Xavi/Lahm Role


4 reds, 4 blues and 3 yellows.
Small grid with a yellow on each end and a yellow playing the Xavi/Lahm role.
When in possession the 4 blues join with the yellows to make 7v4. Pep instructs the players to expand and fill the corners leaving the play maker free in the centre.
The red defending team are encouraged to compact the space and hunt in a pack to win back possession.

Here is a video of Pep Guardiola using the exercise with Bayern Munich.
