    How to counter stacked defense illegal formation?

    In the first leg of my champion's league match, my opponent went 5-4-1 like this.

    DR-DC-DC-DC-DL
    DMR-DMC-DMC-DML


    ST

    He scored in the second half and moved the ST back to DMC and won 1-0.

    I have second leg tomorrow. How should I counter this?

    Thanks

    Not only the illegal formation, but he had three or four players playing out of position.

    Does anyone have experience against something like this?

    My team is a couple stars stronger than him and I have beaten twice before this while he played more conventional formations.

    I played a 4-4-2 with no arrows and normal orders against this formation. I changed arrows and orders to get much more offensively aggressive after he scored. I also made a substitution because this typically seems to produce a scoring chance. But nothing worked.

    I am at a loss with what to do. He goes back to playing conventional against others, but is now set up in the illegal formation again for our match this afternoon. Any ideas at all would be appreciated. Thanks.

    if you tried using an attacking set up then go defensive with force counter attacks. This will force his players to come up the field and then his defense isn't as strong and you hit him on the counter attack

    What do you mean by classic? I played 4-4-2 last time. I used no arrows, attacking, no counter attack, no offside trap, passing mixed, own half, zone.

    Maybe I should force counter attack or play a man to man?
    Or maybe I should play this.
