The aim of this study was to examine physical, physiological, and motor responses and perceived exertion during different soccer drills. In small-sided games, the individual playing area (∼ 275 m², ∼ 175 m², and ∼ 75 m²) was varied while the number of players per team was kept constant: 5 vs. 5 plus goalkeepers.
