    Is narrow diamond effective against 4-4-2?

    I had a cup match against an opponent with basic eleven quality of 29 and mine of 34, i am not used to counter others especially weaker so i was using mu standard 3N-3W-2N-1-1 (which was effective against other 4-4-2) against his 4-4-2 flat. I was winning 1-0 but he turned it to be 3-1, then i changed to narrow diamond and draw 3-3. What do you suggest for the second leg on his stadium. Use narrow diamond again? Thank you. I have 5*+ players for every position except MR and AML (which i dont have any) so please feel free for suggestions. Most of his players are 4* but he has a scout (the lowest level) at MC.

    4-1-2-1-2 ND vs 4-4-2 is very debatable...

    In fact, going by how this game works, the 4-4-2 should be beating the narrow diamond, why? despite being an AMC in there, the ML/MR are only marked once against the narrow diamond, so with red arrows on the ML/MR, it could be quite deadly if your midfield isn't very good.

    Having said that, the narrow diamond has seemed to do well against the 4-4-2, however in the big matches I have seen it go the oother way.. So just be wary of that. A 3-2-2-2-1 butterfly will beat the 4-4-2.

    You could even play an ML in an AML position. It's only 1 spot away from his normal position so you won't be penalised. Just don't make it a habit though...

    You shouldn't play DML and ML, dunno why but it just doesn't seem right stacked up like that on the wing, prevents the free flowing football from where an AML should be so he can attack the area
