Bottom Line: The chi-squared (χ(2)) test was performed to compare the frequencies of the variables between 3 vs. 3 and 6 vs. 6 SSGs and Standardized Residuals (e) were used to examine the influence of the frequency of one or more variables within 3 vs. 3 and 6 vs. 6 SSGs.Data treatment was performed through SPSS for Windows®, version 18.0.Findings can aid coaches and teachers to develop different players' tactical skills according to the chosen SSG (3 vs. 3 or 6 vs. 6) form.

ABSTRACT
The present study aimed to compare players' tactical behaviour in 3 vs. 3 and 6 vs. 6 soccer small-sided games (SSGs). The sample comprised 3,482 tactical actions performed by 18 U-11 youth soccer players from a Portuguese club, in 3 vs. 3 and 6 vs. 6 SSGs. All participants played eight minutes in both situations and field size was adapted according to the number of players involved (30 m × 19.5 m for 3 vs. 3 and 60 m × 39 m for 6 vs. 6). The System of Tactical Assessment in Soccer (FUT-SAT) was used for data collection and analyses. Descriptive analysis was conducted to verify frequencies and percentages of the variables assessed. The chi-squared (χ(2)) test was performed to compare the frequencies of the variables between 3 vs. 3 and 6 vs. 6 SSGs and Standardized Residuals (e) were used to examine the influence of the frequency of one or more variables within 3 vs. 3 and 6 vs. 6 SSGs. Data treatment was performed through SPSS for Windows®, version 18.0. Results indicated that players displayed safer behaviours in 6 vs. 6 SSG and more aggressive behaviours in 3 vs. 3 SSG. Findings can aid coaches and teachers to develop different players' tactical skills according to the chosen SSG (3 vs. 3 or 6 vs. 6) form.

Mentions: To record field tests, a digital video camera was used (Panasonic® NV-DS35EG). Video footage was introduced in digital format on a laptop (Positivo® Mobile Z65, Intel® Celeron® 540 Processor) via a USB cable and converted to .avi video format. Video processing and analysis were performed through Soccer Analyser® (Picture 1) software. This software was developed for use with FUT-SAT and enables the insertion of spatial references (Figure 1) and also the accurate verification of position and movement of the players, as well as the analysis and categorization of the actions that are to be assessed.
