How Do I Counter A Star-Studded 4-3-3A Side?

Recommended Posts

The team is Barcelona and they've been ruling supremacy in the league for almost 4 seasons. The manager deploys a 4-3-3A fromation. The team lines-up like this: Defs: Bellarabi, Godin, Pique, Alba. Mids: Busquets, Coutinho and Modric. Fwds: Messi, Suarez, Neymar.

How do I stop them? My preferred 3-5-2 has been pummeled on several occasions by them. How do I contain them next season and win the league?

Thank You.

 You haven't post your squad for a proper evaluation.  

Without knowing more details, I'd say  this:

You might try to play very defensive, aggressive tackling, mixed passing, attack down both flanks, fast tempo and pressing all over. Counter, tight marking, offside, use as playmaker the DM in front of your defense....

This emulates Atletico Madrid style: it creates a continuous, strong and aggressive pressing on the opponent (thus reducing as minimum as possible the successfull passes to MSN) and then quickly strike them on the counter attack on their weakest defensive spot. Make sure to set a rock-solid defense and have someone marking the whole time Busquets and if he uses someone else as playmaker that other player too.

Good luck!
