BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to compare kinematics parameters among official matches and SSGs of an Italian premier league soccer team.
METHODS: Eighteen elite professional male soccer players (4 central defenders, 4 wide defenders, 3 central midfielders, 3 box-to-box midfielders, 2 wingers and 2 strikers) took part in the study. Players were monitored during four months of full training (including preseason and in-season) and over 26 matches (14 Serie A matches, 9 Europa League matches, and 3 friendly matches), from July 2017 until November 2017. The kinematic parameters during official matches and SSGs were evaluated through video match analysis.
RESULTS: The kinematic data analysis shows that the metabolic power, that constitutes an integrated measure of acceleration and velocity, fails to reflect what occurs during actual match-play.
CONCLUSIONS: An increased attention should be place in planning SSGs during training to better reproduce actual match situations.
