    Tactical help against table topper

    Day after tomorrow I have a match against the table topper. I am currently at 4th with 3 points separating all 4 of us. 2 3 4 are on same points, just with GD differences.

    So here are our tactical setups

    https://ibb.co/6JTSp90

    I normally play a 4 2 3 1, attacking, down the flanks, short, counters off, high press, man to man and hard/normal tackle with offside on.

    I am 114%, with a not so good substitute bench, he is 115.7%. So, tell me people what tactics should I use and what formation should I use

    Must use a DMC , maybe instead of your second MC.
    Defense, counter, flanks, high pressing, mix pass, man to man, offside off

    so I am doing this, 4 1 2 2 1. Using a dmc, playing my amc as MC and using the flanks?

    Yes, your 4-5v-1 (4-1DM-2-2W-1) would be the most logical counter formation, especially when you have both better AML & AMR vs their DR & DL.

    If your opponent has very strong AML & AMR (better than your DR & DL), you may also consider the following:

    With this formation, you are using both DR & MR (and other side too) to squeeze out all the space of their wingers. MC will give you the possession in midfield. The only sacrifice you make is you are going to attack on one of the flank only, depending on which 1 is your stronger winger vs their weaker fullback. Your attack will be built from the back with 3v2 on the flank where you have a numerical advantage.

    Long ball, one flank (flank with AML or AMR), offside on, counter on. Defensive, low press.
