Purpose
The purpose of this study was to identify variations in external load measures between sets (3 × 4’/2’ rest) of small-sided and conditioned game formats (goalkeeper + 5 vs. 5 + goalkeeper with specific tactical demands).

Methods
Overall, 10 male professional soccer players (age: 28.1 ± 3.8 years, experience: 7.9 ± 2.9 years, height: 180.3 ± 5.8 cm, weight: 76.5 ± 6.3 kg) from a team competing in the first Portuguese league and in the UEFA Europa league participated in the study. Distance covered, high intensity running (HIR), maximal velocity (MV), high speed running (HSR), very high intensity running (VHIR), and player load (PL) were monitored by using global positioning system units.

Results
Very large decreases in HIR (–62.6, effect size [ES]: –2.04) were found from set 1 to set 3. Large decreases in distance covered (–12.8%, ES: –1.28) and MV (–19.4, ES: –1.95) were observed from the first to the third set. Large decreases in HSR (–80.2%, ES: –1.78), moderate decreases in PL (–7.6%, ES: –0.64), and large decreases in VHIR (–83.0%, ES: –1.88) were reported between the first and the third set.

Conclusions
The results of the present study indicate a significant drop in external load performance when comparing the first and the second sets with the third set.
