    4-4-2 OP formation in general, or only this season?

    Whatever i do, i am finding hard to win against 4-4-2. I tried 3N-4-1-2, 4-5-1 V style, 4-2-2-2 with no luck. Flank attack, middle attack, mixed, nothing works. For example i lost 2 cup matches in semifinals against a much lower quality team (27.7 vs 22.7) with a pretty big score difference (5-2 final score).

    My team last match (lost 2-0):


    His team:

    From what I've observed this season, 4-4-2 has struggled with the 4-1-2-1-2 ND. My 4-4-2 classic got beat 2:0 in the champions league qtrfinals. A friend of mine, had his 4-4-2 draw the narrow diamond 1-1 in the CL semi-finals, be he was losing 1-0 when he changed formations.

    It was the same for me so I end up playing 4-4-2 as well and when I face 4-4-2 just play hard tackling and man to man if start go bad sometimes hard attacking. It works for me so far lost the cup and champions but have 8 points lead on the league with 81 goals scored and suffered only 8 goals so far.

    I've played tophat like Steppenwolf, and also that with AML AMR instead (t-shirt.) But I think 4 4 2 is actually easier than it once was, or maybe I've gotten better?
    In my first 20 seasons it was the bane of my existence in T11, but lately I've at least gotten draws, and wins.. with 3W 2DMC 1MC 2W 1, all formations vs. 4 4 2 playing defensively with counters on. But that's how my players like to play. (I say like but mean "the orders & defensive formation in which they get their best ratings/most goals".)

    I have problems with narrow diamond this season... Nothing seems to work vs. it, 3-5V-2, 4-5V-1, 5-4-1 ND, 4-1-4-1, 3N-1-4-2...
