I've got a save using Lucena in the Spanish Second Division B4. Having looked through the team I noticed that they have good decisions, teamwork, and workrate. I decided to try to build a tactic with focus on maintaining possession and pressing in defense. I typically line up in a 4-1-4-1 like this:
Left Back - FB/a
Center Backs - CD/d
Right Back - CWB/a
Defensive Midfielder - Anchor Man/d
Left Midfielder - WM/a - Roam From Position, sit narrower, cut inside with ball
Center Midfielder Left - RPM/s - More risky passes
Center Midfielder Right - CM/a - Close down more, roam, move into channels
Right Midfielder - Wide Playmaker/s
Striker - Complete Forward/s - Close down more
Team Instructions -
play out of defense
shoot on sight
push higher up
My idea is that the anchorman, RPM, and WP should see a lot of the ball with goals coming from the WM/a, CM/a and CF/s. The CWB on the right side provides an overlap while the FB/a on the left should do so rarely.
This tactic actually defends quite well but I see very few goals. In my last 5 games, 4 of them were 0-0 draws! I tend to have a lot of possession and in those games I was probably a little unlucky not to win outright. I'm trying to see what changes I can make to get more goals without opening myself up too much.
