    How do I defeat this super-buffed squad?

    Hi everyone, I am seeking help and advice on better managing my team's tactics and formations. After a series of losses in the leagues and cups, I finally have made some changes and improved my squad a bit and am currently working with 4-4-2.

    This is me:

    This is my next honorable (and super wealthy) opponent:

    My team's mentality is to Attack (not hard) and focus passing "Down both Flanks" with "Mixed Passing", pressing "Whole Pitch", forcing NO Counter Attacks but playing for Offside Traps.

    A. Do I stand a chance given my current setup?
    B. If not, what can I do to increase my chances of winning?

    Looking for pointers and tips guys. Thanks!

    You definitely should change to through the middle because he has only 1 4* MC on the bench so he'll either use him or no MC at all...

    I would dont use the offside trap if the opponent has am's. In this case amc.
    The amc can be very dangerous for you. So i would ever play with dmc against a amc.

    The 4-4-2 C is not really an attackformation. I dont know the word at the moment but it is a save formation. Mostly played from managers that have not much time for their team. Its save with 4 man defence and mids. But there arent any attackingmids am's so the best way to play this formation is normal mode.

    And if you go for whole pitch i would go for hard tackling because you dont want the opp in your half.

    Just a few thoughts.

    So should I change to a more attacking formation instead that also focuses through the middle? Say, 4-1-2-1-2 or 4-1-3-1-2 or something of the sort and focus tactics through the mid instead of wings? Are there any known formation tactics that might work against this opponent?

    4-4-2 narrow diamond will work, because it allows your AMC to do what he wants. Hopefully he wants to help you win So i would suggest using narrow diamond

    Thanks everyone, Mission Accomplished.
    Formation used: 4-1-2-1-2, focussed tactics through the middle with Hard Attacking and no Counter attacks or Offside traps played.

    Here's the result against this opponent: (i was watching the game, he wasn't, so I guess that helped too)
