    counter attacks
    no offside traps
    Do you think 11-0 is a bit too much ^^?

    Yes, this season the 4-4-2 is almost unbeatable.

    Of course I'm not considering very lower teams. I can can beat 10-0 a 4-4-2 classic which quality is 8 point less.

    In league I won all the matches except 3 draws, 2 against 4-4-2 classic.

    In cup I got rid off by a 4-4-2 with same quality (I've used a 4-5-1V)

    In champions I've lost the first leg at home 1-3 with against a 4-4-2 with 1.2 points higher quality (4-5-1V during first half, 4-4-2 ND during 2nd)

    Yes, 4-4-2 classic is definitely hard to beat this season

    I'd put my money on the other team being inactive with all players OOP.

    Short analyses:

    4-4-2

    --- ST --- ST ---
    -----------------
    ML - MC - MC - MR
    ------------------
    DL - DC - DC - DR

    First rule is have more players in the midfield! Consider this: When the DL and DR are set to red arrows, your opponent has got 6(!) midfield players! You need to own the midfield and there are several ways to do that.

    First is using a motivated 4-5-1 flat

    ------- ST -------
    ------------------
    ML-MC-MC-MC-MR
    ------------------
    DL---DC---DC---DR

    Using motivation, in attack your formation will be:

    ------- ST -------
    AML------------AMR
    ----MC-MC-MC----
    DML------------DMR
    -----DC---DC-----

    In this you will have 7 players in midfield.

    Using motivation, in defense your formation will be:

    ------- ST -------
    ------------------
    ML-------------MR
    --DMC-DMC-DMC---
    DL---DC---DC---DR

    You now have 3 extra def mids (or sweepers) in the def mid. One condition is dat your MC's need to be fast.

    Preferable tactics:

    Defensive mentality when opponent quality is higher, Offensive when opponent quality is (much) lower.
    Passing both Flanks
    Hard tackling unless you have a bunch of yellow cards, then normal
    Short or if that doesnt work, mixed passing
    Zone cover
    Force opponent to counter Yes
    Play offside trap No

    Imo this is our best shot to defeat 4-4-2.

    Second is butterfly

    Motivated 3-2-2-2-1:

    -------ST-------
    AML---------AMR
    -----MC--MC----
    DML---------DMR
    ----DC-DC-DC---

    Using red arrows on DML and DMR and blue arrows on both MC.

    Tactics:

    Offensive
    Passing both Flanks
    Normal tackling
    Short passing
    Zone cover
    Force opponent to counter No
    Play offside trap No

    I think this will only work effectively if your opponent is max 5 points higher in quality.

    Ilegal formations.

    1.You need 3 players in defense.

    2. You need minimum 4 players in opponent's half.

    Read before you reply These are formations when using red or blue motivation arrows ... not the real set up formation. Thats 4-51 flat

    Is there a good formation against a stronger team with 4-4-2 Classic? The screenshots in this thread are only against teams with a 1-2 stars lower rating. I tried different formations this season like 4-1-2-1-2 Narrow Diamont, 4-5-1 V, 3-5-1 V and 3-5-2 Flat. I only won the last match where i also used the 4-4-2 classic.
