    4-1-2-1-2 Narrow Diamond

    My team's total quality is 119,2, while my opponents is 117,1. In the first leg of CL semi, I lost 0-2 at home somehow, and I wasn't able to attend the match. I used 4-5v-1 in that match and lost, and the formation table says 3-5v-2 can also be a counter formation for 4-1-2-1-2, and in terms of having more better players on the field, 3-5v-2 would be better, because my second striker is stronger than my defender.

    What formation and tactics should I use in order to score at least 2 goals in the away match and not concede?

    The opponent's first squad is as following:

    GK - Five stars, 122 quality
    DL - Five stars, 120 quality
    DC- Four stars, 118 quality
    DC- His current DC has a red card, so I'm guessing he will use his three star one with 114 quality
    DMC- Four stars, 119 quality
    MC- Five stars, 122 quality
    MC- Five stars, 124 quality
    AMC- Four stars, 115 quality
    ST- Six stars, 126 quality
    ST - Five stars, 124 quality

    My team is as following (3w-5v-2):

    GK- Six stars, 125 quality
    DL- Three stars, 112 quality
    DC - Five stars, 120 quality
    DR- Four Stars, 115 quality
    DMC - Five Stars, 124 quality
    MC- Six stars, 125 quality
    MC- Six stars, 125 quality (special ability: dribbler)
    AML- Six stars, 125 quality
    AMR- Six stars, 128 quality (special ability: shadow striker)
    ST: Six stars, 125 quality
    ST: Four stars, 115 quality

    Note: I can use 4-5v-1, that would mean I would have to take my second striker out and put in my defender with three stars and 112 quality.

    Note2: I have two MCs with five stars and another AML/AMC with five stars which I can still use.

    So, basically my offense is pretty strong, but my defense isn't the best, so please help!

    Lately against ND i am having problems using 451V or 352V.

    I have been using my version that is 3N13N2W1, so i use 352V, but instead of the 2nd striker i use a 3rd MC to control the midfield. I have been winning against stronguer opponents with it.
    THIS GAME IS TO RANDOM! I STOP WAISTING MY TIME!

    Using the 4-1-2-1-2 ND as a primary formation, so far I'm having much luck in my league. If I have the better players, I would fight fire with fire if the opponent plays 4-1-2-1-2 as well, and have not lost a match using ND vs ND.

    Having that said, if I ever see a 3N-1-4-2 opponent, I would switch to another formation

    I was using this the whole last season and proved to be very effective against most teams, but I for some reason was struggling with it in the beginning of this season, but I still use it sometimes.

    Regarding my match, I decided to use 3w-5v-2, which proved to be effective and got me a 3-0 win, and 3-2 on aggregate, now I'm in the CL final.
