    At a complete loss as to what happened...

    Well I've been playing Top Eleven now since the beginning of March, having ups and downs, Lost the cup at the quarter finals to a weaker team, and just now lost the Champions League at the quarter finals to yet again a weaker team. I'm at a complete loss as to what is going on.

    It's not due to condition or morale, as I completely maxed out both of them before the match started.

    I beat the opponent 2-0 on the home game in the champions league, and have been defeated quite embarresingly 3-0 on the away game. Pictures below to show that I still had posession bonus of 7%, all my team bonuses were maxed out, and my team is of higher quality than his. So what is going on?

    Neither of our formations changed, so I would assume that I should get the same outcome as before. Or at least, that's what makes sense to me.

    My teams quality is 96%, their team quality is 87%. Should also mention that "Reale" is also a scout level striker.

    What probably happened in that game, is that your opp (as you had a higher q team) set defense/counter and maybe long pass so
    - as you didn't have any DM, your team was vulnerable to that (long passing)
    - your attackers couldn't score
    - all your midf. players were focus on attack (red/attack arrows).

    so, very wrong formation and orders + not a good day

    nothing can explain... only can say... "bad luck" ... (and 96% vs 87%.... almost mean nothing at all.... my 136% team can draw with a 88% team in league also LOL )

    Very useful information, thank you very much However, how would I counteract this for the future?

    What formation would you use to prevent the counter attack?

    yes, many times even if he would use the right orders, could still loose that game, but in that case the F&T was weak.

    ok , some tips for your case
    - As this is a critical game, you must go back and check his previous games.
    Is he always using this formation ?

    - A weaker (in q) team than yours, 90% would set defensive mod
    - a defensive mod many times combines with counter attacks
    - When I see that opponent doesn't have a "between" line (DM players) I use long pass
    - This is deadly when it works

    So, if I can see right (it's not complete your images), I would use 3DC-1DMC in my defense and also set defensive mod with counter attacks.
    If you won the first leg 2-0, why not playing defense and let your oppo exposing his team ?

    Even if I 'm playing vs weaker teams, I prefer to play def/counters. Many times it's really "deadly" (more than playing hard attack).
    and you can score a lot of goals
    In many things the philosophy - the reaction/calculation of the game, is very different than real football.

    check here for example (def/counter scores)

    Using the same formation (if it's a balanced one), or searching for a counter to your opponent ?
    Both can work (of course setting different orders/arrows, the team changing a lot).
    There is not the "one" right way to play.
    In my 13th season, I had won all the leagues, the CH.L. and 4 trebles.
    When I started playing the game and till lv3, as I had a better team than most of my opponents (5* and 6* players), I was setting attack mod.
    After I became a forum member here (at lv2) and start reading many posts, I switched my mentality to defense/counter and tried to find counter formations, so you can see the analogy of goals (GA - GF). I still playing defense/counter in 80-90% of my games.
