    I always lose to friendlies, why?

    My friend always beats me at friendly matches with my team conceding many goal. My average team quality is 23.8 for level 2 manager and I am dominating my league being unbeaten. Only lost 2 matches in cup when I didn't watch the match and had injured player on pitch. My friend team rating is 18.8 and he is 5th in his league level 2. I have a better keeper than him by far 5 star strikers and 4 to 5 star defence and midfield. I've put out my best squad, had 100% condition and moral. Even tried the counter formation business yet he always beats me. He never bothers with tactics or has his players in a good formation. One time he put out a squad with an injured player in defence and players in wrong position and still he won. I don't mind getting beat but not like this. I expect that I should be winning the majority of the time due to better squad and tactics. Any ideas why this is happening?

    In my post I said 100% condition so it must be bad luck

    I have some good players in my second team but comparing my first team to my friends first team I have a much better squad. I feel like Chelsea in the league but I play burnley every week in a friendly and burnley beat me every match 5 or 6-0

    Don't know why it posted twice? Lol. Suppose it can and I can accept getting beat by a lesser team but not every single match 5 or 6-0. My team is good and I beat others in the league by sometimes up to 9-0. So dominate there

    You are a lower level(2 or 3 i guess),and in the league is easy to win with 5,6-0...Maybe you have hard attacking,its very disapointin some time...I was level 3(ovr 31-32 at level 3),and i made equal with an 16 ovr manager and i lost the leagues...Stuff like this happen...Mention i played hard attacking,and maybe this is the problem...

    Maybe a screen shot of the matches in question would produce more advice?

    Friendlies are different that regular competition matches, too, so I don't use them as a real take on how my team is doing, if you are winning in League I wouldn't worry about it.

    I merged duplicate threads so all comments in one.
    Expressed above is my own opinion. Your results may vary.

    Never gauge team capabilities through friendlies. There is a different game engine for friendlies. Your team and opponents team never play to their potential. It's a toss of a coin.
