Tactical help with 4-2-4 formation


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I just wanted to know what tactics would be best to use for my next game against Arsenal. My team is Barcelona and i am play arsenal away for my next game, i have recentley been trying out new formation and have not succeeded with any of them so i have decided to use the 4-2-4 formation as i think it best suites the player positions in my team.

Here is an image of my team and i have listed the different tactical styles below so it makes it easier for you guys to fill out.

Men Behind Ball - Y

Tight Marking - Y/N you can decide

i would use either the target man or the playmaker not both at the same time.

Yes thanks for the diagram Sir Metz it really helps, so in the centre position its better to play a CM than a DM?

Thanks.

Well, I really do not know what the position is in real life, as I have never played that formation, but I dont think it will make a huge differance between a DM or a CM. If the other team is really strong up top, make them DM to help your defense, if you need help getting forward, then make them CM. If you have a DM/CM or a CM/DM, then you have the best of both worlds :)

You can experiment with CM and DM and see which combo works best...
