    Formation to go against 4-4-1-1?

    I have been searching the internet for a formation that will counter a 4-4-1-1. its says 3-5-2 or 4-5-1 would counter but this was 2016.
    I have a big league game tonight and the person I'm playing is unbeaten
    Anyone know what's the best formation to counter a 4-4-1-1 formation?
    and with him being stronger should i go defensive mentality as i normally play normal and have won every game since our last meeting.
    any help would be appreciated.

    with him being stronger
    sorry, this isn't exact definition.
    Some saying
    I 'm stronger, I have 105% and he has 99%.
    Only with one star difference (20%) and above, I claim that I m stronger from my oppo.

    Okay well he is not a star in front of me but he still has a stronger team than mine on paper. but my question was more on the 4-4-1-1
    Just wanted to know what formation would be best suited to playing against his 4-4-1-1.
    does 3-5-2 or 4-5-1 counter the 4-4-1-1?

    I use a lot 4-4-1-1 and the formations that used to giveme trouble is the 4-1-2-1-2 ND.
    But since the game changed to 2018 version, i've read a lot of experienced players saying that formations are not being so important anymore, so there is no longer a good set of counter formations.
    good luck on your match

    I said that because if q is similar, I use 3 Dw + 1 DMC. If his ST is +20%, I use 4D+ 1DMC.
    So 4-5-1 V or
    3-1-3MC-AML-AMR-ST
    or
    3-1-2MC-AML-AMC-AMR-ST.

    Also depends from your available good players/positions you have.
    (which is more important than formation)

    Thanks.
    So i guess these counter formations are more of guides now than actual proof.
    Thanks again dude.

    about formation:
    when your opponent got AMC, you will need DMC,
    you also need fullback because opponent got flanker
    others doesn't really matter

    about tactic;
    because you said your opponent is stronger,
    just play defensive mentality with ON counter attack,

    and counter attack is very effective if
    i) you got AMC/AML/AMR
    ii) and the DMC(high creative skill) as the ignition of counter attacking

    suitable formation in your case
    i) 4-1-2-1-2 Narrow diamond (focus through middle)
    ii) 4-5-1 V (focus passing mixed area)

    (use 4 defender is suggested because your opponent is stronger)

    Heh, almost a year later.

    In league I'm going against 4-4-1-1 tomorrow, we are very evenly matched. Neither has lost a single game and opponent has drawn once so this could be a decisive game in league.

    I'm thinking of going with my 4-2-2-2 attacking, since I built my team around it and so far it has worked very well. I have some other good players for different positions, so if there's an injury to anyone except AMC I must tweak the formation.

    Thinking I could adjust 1dmc and 1amc with attack mentality, 1 left 1 right. I'll probably check how the game goes first. Maybe it could help with possession.

    Or could long passes through middle work well to surprise their defence too far upfield. (Perhaps in this case I should set defensive and counter attacks on, maybe that would work better)

    I could do a 3-2-2-3 also. I know I could probably do with 3D, but I'm keen on preventing any goals from opponent, which is why I'm intending the 4-2-2-2 form.

    Any thoughts on this?
