Counter formations

Recommended Posts

Re: Counter formations

not sure if my opponent visits the forum, but I will give it a try. How do I counter this:

Tackling Style Normal

Mentality Attacking

Passing Style Mixed

Attacking Style Down Both Flanks

Tempo Fast

Pressing Own Half

Counter-Attack Yes

Men Behind Ball No

Tight Marking No

Play Offside No

Use Play Maker Yes

Use Target Man Yes

I have played him 5 times with varying formations and instructions. All I could muster was a draw at best.

Re: Counter formations

ok so I am having one of the most important games and pretty much panicking right now :D I am playing against a team rated 93 and not afraid to attack and play it rough while my team hardly rated 91 but what gives me hope is that he uses 4-4-1-1 and that can't be hard to counter right ? no need to know that he won the league using this formation

Re: Counter formations

Any tips on countering this? My team is very marginally stronger, but I lack wingers (can play Piszczek and Marcelo as RM/LM which normally works well), I would normally use 3-5-2 as well but i'm not sure with attacking/defending and passing styles etc. thanks. Also may want to note that I have Messi and Ronaldo at my disposal :)

Tackling Style/hard

Mentality/def

Passing Style/mix or anything really

Attacking Style/ mix

Tempo/ normal

Pressing/ all over

Play Style

Counter-Attack

Men Behind Ball

Use Playmaker

Use Target Man

play 5-3-2 against stronger teams (2+ Average Rating),, (same tactics)

Re: Counter formations

I would go with 4-4-2 diamond or 4-5-1 V-style if the opponent is stronger.

Good luck' date=' mate![/quote']

My Porto team just got promoted and I have used 451 defensive twice against 4231 whose teams are better rated. After 60 minutes I put arrows on my two wide midfielders so it becomes like a 433 wingers.

Ive won two nil and four nil.

Iam liking this 451.

Re: Counter formations

Allright guys, most important game of the season for me: division 2 play-off final! My Fenerbaçhe team has got back to back promotions, and I'm looking to make it three in a row by beating an unmanaged West Ham side.

West Ham's last game was played with the common 4-2-3-1 formation. Their highest rated players are Andy Carroll (88), Razvan Rat (88) and Mark Noble (88). Now, I clicked on that Scout Prediction thing and SM tells me that they are likely to play with a 4-2-4. What am I supposed to use as formation?

My Fenerbaçhe starting XI: Sirigu, Zabaleta, Papadopoulos, Nastasiç, De Sciglio, Isla, Matuidi, Aubameyang, Son, Ljalic, Sturridge. Subs: Ox, Yobo, Schneiderlin, Eriksen, Sakho, Ercin (88 LB) and Korkmaz (88 CB).

I normally play in a 4-3-3-wingers formation with Aubameyang and Ljalic on the wings, but last game I tried a 4-2-3-1 with Son behind Sturridge, thus leaving Isla or Eriksen on the bench.

Has anyone got any suggestions?

Cheers!

3-2-2-2-1 counters 4-4-2 diamond

4-1-3-2 or 4-4-2 diamond counters 4-3-3 wingers

3-4-2-1- counters 4-5-1 defensive

3-2-2-2-1 counters 4-2-3-1

3-5-2 counters 4-3-2-1

3-2-2-2-1 counters 4-4-1-1

3-5-2 counter 4-1-3-2

3-4-3 counters 4-3-1-2

4-5-1 counters 3-4-1-2

3-2-2-2-1 counters 5-3-2 sweeper

3-4-3 counters 5-3-2 defensive

4-3-3 counters 4-2-4

3-2-2-2-1 counters 4-2-2-2

3-5-2 counters 4-1-3-2

3-4-1-2 counters 3-2-2-2-1

Hope you enjoy! And start winning games from now on too!

Instead of saying 3-5-2 counters 4-4-2 and

3-5-2 counter 4-3-2-1

you could say/write 3-5-2 counter 4-4-2 and 4-3-2-1, just to make it easier to see or ''To counter 4-4-2 use 3-5-2'',

''To counter 4-3-2-1 use 3-5-2''

So it would be like this:

3-5-2 counters

4-4-2

4-3-2-1

4-1-3-2

4-3-3 counters

4-2-4

5-2-3

half of this is useless now, play 3-5-2 with right tactics and never lose.

Re: Counter formations

Hi there, does anyone know the best tactic to counter 3-4-2-1?

Im playing with CSKA against Fiorentina, and since I haven't found an answer yet, im going with 3-4-2-1 aswell, is it a bad move? (my team's average is superior by 2 points)

Thank you
