    Any ideas how to set up for return leg?

    Any ideas how to set up for return leg?-clformation.jpgAny ideas how to set up for return leg?-clstats.jpgJust lost 1st leg of champs league 1-2, my Q is 74 and their's is 72 and my orders were attacking, mixed, own half, normal, mixed, zonal, counter. they played 4-3W-1-2 and I played 4-5-1V but after going 2 down early changed to 3W-1-2N-3-1 and changed again to 3W-1-1-3-2 and unchecked counter. So how should I set up for return leg?

    I narrowly lost to 4-3w-1-2 using 4-5-1v and he had 6 star players as he was a Level above me.

    Don't quote me on this but if I ever come across this formation again, I'd want to go with 4-1-2-1-2 narrow diamond.

    Logic.

    I suppose that would give me more firepower whilst cutting down my width!

    Just bad luck. You had twice as many shots, twice as many on target, and just didn't connect. Only weird thing is the possession - you should have had 60%+ ...
    I'm inclined the way DV8R is .. except I'd go with an AMC instead of a second striker, and I'd attack the middle.

    4-3W-1-2 is the most overpowered formation in T11, alongside 4-3W-3.

    The 3N-1-3W-1-2 is getting quite common. You see it every season, token buyers using the same formation as the next guy.

    I tried 4-3W-1-2 in the past and thought it was good at first, but then it turned terrible for me and haven't used it since.

    Thanks for everyone's input, I actually ran the 3-5-2V this morning against a 3* team in my league with the same formation, I won 0-2 but first half I barley had any shots!
