    Need help to win these 2 formations

    There are 2 games I need to win.
    One is the classic 4-4-2 which I think 4-4-2 narrow diamond should do the job.
    Another is a weird formation, it goes like this
    dr--dc--dc--dc--dl
    dmr---------------
    ----mc----------ml
    ------st--st-------
    This guy always wins, never loses in his league.
    What formation should I use?
    Please suggest formation that do not need flanks.
    Thank you.

    I would do 4-3N-1-2, Through the middle.
    His flanks are pretty much protected with DR/DMR, DL, and a possible Blue ML.

    Towards the end of last season I started to notice 4-5-1V and 4-3N-1-2 Don't really work well against Classic 4-4-4 anymore.
    Recently I tried another formation, and won a 4-4-2 calssic by 4:1 using a mix of 4-4-2 vs 4-2-2-2 Hex formation:

    ----ST----ST----
    -------------AMR
    ML-MC--MC----
    -----------------
    DL-DC-DC-DR

    Use AML/AMR whichever is stronger, or whichever of his wing is weaker.

    4-1-2-1-2 ND might work as well as I have observed in some of the match results this season.

    Scrap that idea of the weird 4-3-1-2, I just lost 2-1 with that formation against 4-4-2 slightly stronger team.

    For 4-4-2 narrow diamond, i put red arrows on amc and the 2 mc. If opponent has an amc , the dmc don't put red arrows. The rest just leave it as it is. For orders, i put attacking, through the middle, whole pitch, short/mixed passing, normal tackling, zonal marking and no force counterattack and no offside trap.
