    Weird formation. How to beat this?

    hey guys.
    I am playing a team that has players that are not as good as mine. I am playing at home. This is the formation he uses

    Weird formation. How to beat this?-eottoke.jpg

    In our first game, I used 4-4-1-1 and i had 67% possession but the game ended 0-0. Now I want to try some other formation but i have no idea what could work. Anybody got any tips?

    I am thinking about using this formation:


    DR-DC-DC-DL
    MC-MC
    AMR-AMC-AML
    ST

    If you had gone to the right forum, you would perhaps have seen July suggest 4-4-2 flat.

    the fact that the 1st leg wasn't so good doesn't mean that the problem was the formation. maybe it was just an unlucky result. for my cup 1st leg i had a home 1-1 but i played well and i was confident that my formation was the proper. anyway we both played exactly the same formations and i won 2nd leg 4-1 away. the formation you used 1st leg wasn't bad. what you are planing to play i believe is better. i can also suggest 3dc-mdl-mdr-2mc-aml-amr-st. whatever you decide to play focus passing flanks, mixed passing, full pitch, offside trap. red arrows to all your side players and mentality if you are much better hard attacking but if you are worst or the same then normal

    i actually checked that thread but couldnt find this tactic, hence using a 4-4-1-1 and creating this thread

    any idea what to use for the passing? should it be down the flanks? short/mixed?

    thanks for the info! unfortunately i dont have any who can plan as wingbacks (MDL/MDR).
    i am always scared to use offside trap against two attackers. will it still work?

    then play the formation you had in mind. definitely passing through the flanks. i don't use offside trap when there are amc's otherwise i use it always no matter how many attckers the opponent has

    It's there under 3N-2DML/DMR-3N-2.
