    First 20 minutes, you know you will lose the game...

    In the first 20 minutes of the game, you know you will lose when...

    1) Opponent scores twice despite having just 2 shots on goal
    2) All your shots never got on target or saved by GK (despite being one-on-one, or met with a corner)
    3) Opponent defenders tackles all the time

    Just faced this situation despite the following stats: (my team first)

    Possession 60% - 40%
    Total Shots 19 7
    On Target 3 5
    Corners 9 4
    Tackles 15 27
    Final Score 0 4

    Anyone felt the same before? In my 30 seasons playing Top 11, i can come to this conclusion. No matter what i did (substitutions or change in formation), it wouldn't matter. Results are pre-determined.

    I have posted on a similar issue before. I also notice player ratings are not so good after 20 minutes. The opposition GK saves everything etc.

    What was your opponents quality, was he attending? The game animation is bad and doesn't always make sense, but 60% possession is not that big of a difference. Depends if he was playing defensively with counter attacks.

    Well, on the other hand when you are 0-2 down after 20 minutes, the chances are you are going to lose whatever the stats say. Yesterday, I was 3-0 up after 35 mins against a weaker half-abandoned team and it finished 3-3. It's just a game!

    Quality 103.5% (opp) - 111.8% (me)
    Attending NO (opp) - YES (me)
    Formation 4-3N-1-2 (opp) - 3N-5-2 v-style (later changed to 4-3-3 to chase the game while 3-0 down)

    i was playing normal, down the wings...had to change to attacking after 20minutes.

    I don't usually lose by a 3 or more goal margin, so to lose 4-0 it heartbreaking. Players just didn't turn up.

    I agree with you it's so frustrating when you do everything and nothing seems to happen. I also somewhat believe the result is predetermined, but there should be some room left for changing the outcome especially when you attend the match. So many times I've struggled during important matches without any outcome and in some important matches I forget to attend,I won. Which makes me question if sometimes I'm hurting my team by attending the match

    Not really! I witnessed this in my last season. Both managers were absent. I'm not saying anything, just that the game is so unpredictable to surprise itself

    First 20 minutes, you know you will lose the game...-img_20170601_184128%5B1%5D.jpg
    i controled the entire match, made substitutions, nothing worked...i lost 2-1. and he got 3 shots on goal...when server wants you to lose, you lose. with nothing you can do. that's what i fuckin' hate the most.
