POSSESSION PHASEThe Antonio Conte game originates from the possession of the defense ; no matter if you risk something in trade near your area : the ball you should never throw ahead at random. The two central widen to better manage the ball, as well as the two full-backs must be wide in order to offer the possibility of central passage. The two central midfielders at this stage should only help the defense with a side game. Conte requires midfielders with strong qualities of interdiction, the left played a defensive midfielder, on the right a deep lying playmaker / ball winning midfielder. Attackers are vertically provided.
Once the ball comes to one of the two wingers ( deployed on foot inverted ) have three options :
1.Select in the end and crossed
2. Cut centrally and dialogue with the two strikers
3.Cut centrally and serve in deep with a filter outside of the opposite side
Very unique is the location of the two strikers who have not joined but rather vertically to embarrass the opponent's defenders . Note also how the median remains behind cover (this also covers offensive raids of full-backs that rise in turn ) while the countertop to maneuver ball winning midfielder.
