Re: How to beat 5-4-1??

Thanks for the referance!

If I dont have anything about the 5-4-1 formations in the guide, PM me and Ill help you. I think the game may have created some new formations after I posted it, and my guide may need some updating.

Keith, I would recommend a 4-1-3-2 if you have the players for it. Here's what I recommend:

-------------------GK-------------------

----RB-------CB--------CB------LB----

--------------DM: 92/93+--------------

--------F/W-------AM-------F/W-------

---------------F----------F-------------

The key is to make sure you have enough good F/W/AM guys. Pretty much the "3" of the formation can be AM/F/W, any of those.

The key is to make sure you've got a crazy good DM (or CM if no DM). I'm talking someone like Pirlo, Cambiasso, or De Rossi; or if you're managing a smaller team, a DM that's much better than your competition.

Then, set the DM to the playmaker actually. Use very attacking through the middle with short passing and tight marking.

Do you want to try a friendly in one of the setups I'm on with you? I'll play this formation and you can try out the 4-1-3-2.
