Playing against narrow formations.

Recommended Posts

In this edition of FM it seems that narrow formations have been the ones giving me the most issues.

I have tried matching them with a 4312, and it has helped me to exploit having an extra man in midfield. But for some reason playing with a wide formation against a 442 diamond has just backfired massively. 

What I mean by backfire is that I would not be able to get good quality chances exploiting the flanks. 

Could someone please shine some light on what I could do differently when it comes to opposition instructions and also just general tactical principles to help me beat narrow systems. 

I lined up as a 424 with a standard loe and standard defensive line.
