    puzzled by 3DC-1-2-3W-1

    It's very rare that a tactic causes me nightmares. But this is a typical case. I've faced the same oppo playing this 3 times in a row without a win! His team is slightly weaker than mine. He sticks to his tactic no matter what occurs in the game. And I must admit, he is right to do so.
    Yesterday, he got a red on minute 10 and played for 80 mins with only 2 def. And I could only score once ! I used 4-5-1V and 3W-2DMC-2-2W-1 with the same "success". Domination but no goals! I play counter and obviously, down the flanks. But in spite of the huge gap offered to my great wingers, no goals! What would you do ?

    Try long passes and drop out counterattacks. Also the 5 midfielders are a waste. Either the ML and MR will have a forward arrow either replace them with more attackers (if you have capable of course)

    I guess his players' highlighted skills is so high while the other skills is so low which will give him more quality. check his players out.
    If so ...
    why you don't go defensive 4 change! 3N 3W (DML - DMC - DMR) 2N 1 1
    Arrows: 3DC - DMC --> down - AMC --> up

    Defensive - Through the middle - mixed passes - Counter ON
    High pressing - Normal tackling - Zonal - Offside OFF

    Good luck

    If he uses 3DC:
    451V
    Defensive, long pass, flanks, counter on.
    Low pressure, hard tackling, man-to-man, offside off.

    Thanks for your input. I like the tactic you exposed but impossible for me to use as I am short of DMR. No, he's not used one of these tricks for boosting players quality.

    4-5-1V is one of favourite tactics but I normally do not use it against 1-striker teams. I may try it for a change.

    I would use 3Dw-2DMC-2MC-AML-AMR-ST
    or
    3Dw-1DMC-ML-2MC-MR-2ST (or AMC-ST)

    but I think he has the right "chemistry" he found, not the formation.

    Try to find from older games, which oppo formation gave him a hard time and which (possible) mentality his oppo used.

    Well, with 4-5-1V and long balls I kicked him out of cup easily. Now, I'm going to see whether it was a trend or a matter of luck in our CL semi-final...
