Tactics DOMINANT 3-2-1-4 (Tactic that Beat Real Madrid 8-0!!)


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This innovative tactic took a lot of trial and error to perfect and I’m happy to share it as my 1st on fmmvibe!

*Tactic is tried and tested to work on various teams*

For returning viewers: Refer to 4. Set Pieces. This should solve most issues. Thanks for all the support!

1. Tactical Philosophy: 

I developed this tactic with the aim of maximising offensive production (possession+shots) without compromising defensive solidarity. Here’s how I did it:

 

2. Positional Requirements:

IMG_0006.thumb.png.7177f2771b79846489a27b3e26b09bfb.png

Defence: The CBs should either be all CD or all NCB (trust me lmao). I used CDs in the Championship but find NCBs to be much more effective in the PL/higher competition. Another VERY IMPORTANT requirement is to turn on man-marking for all 3 CBs.

Midfield: the triangle midfield is what provides control within this tactic. I exclusively use AP in the no 10. For the pivot, I favour two CMs but any combination of CM, BBM, BWM and DLP should be fine.

Attack: the four up top cause havoc when pressing the opposition build up and create overloads in attack. The amount of goals I get from forcing mistakes and turnovers is crazy. I exclusively use IFs out wide and Ps as the strikers.

 

3. Tactical Requirements:

Shape: Overloading supports my philosophy to attack with urgency at all times. Narrow width keeps the team compact and less susceptible to counter attacks. I find playing at a faster tempo ensures the team plays direct and gets the ball to the front four quickly. Disciplined mentality ensures the players stick to my instructions.

Defense: The high-line helps pin opponents in their half. 3-2-1-4 may sound very defensively unstable, but the front four when pressing really disrupts the opponent build up, specifically against back three systems. I’ve set pressing to all over and it works a charm with the 3-2-1-4 shape.

Attack: I’ve selected the shoot on sight tactic as I prefer quantity over quality in attack. I set passing to short to maximise ball retention and maintain shape. I attack down the centre to ensure that if a move breaks apart, the ball will be in a congested area rather than out wide where the 3-2-1-4 is vulnerable. I set the GK distribution long to get the ball into attacking zones as quickly as possible and keep the game in the opponents half.

4. Set Pieces:

*Depicted instructions are to be horizontally reflected to opposite zone (left to right)*

Over the course of using this tactic, I've constantly changed my set piece instructions. This is why I omitted this from my initial post. Described below is my latest set-up and I encourage everyone to understand the general concepts, be creative and alter as they wish.

Attack: The main principle here is to be conservative. Always leave at least two CBs back. This eliminates most risk of counter-attacks. Keep all positions as 'none' in every attacking zone (except corners and the deepest attacking zones). This helps shape retention. Across the deepest attacking zones (just above half-way line), instruct the strikers to get forward and everyone else 'none'. This keeps the opposition stretched vertically and their defensive line deep.

Defence: Again, I prefer to take a conservative approach. Keep at least one striker as an outlet to initiate counters and have the wingers on both left and right posts on corners and near free kicks. In line with my aim of keeping the opposition vertically stretched, in the most advanced defensive zones (just under half-way line) instruct the forwards to get forward. Follow all other instructions as depicted below.

I like the look of this. Will test tonight. What is your corner set up?

Distribution: Far Post

CBs: keep wide cbs back to prevent counters and central cb should mark keeper

CMs: both lurk outside area

AM: go forward

wingers: both far post

strikers: one near post one mark keeper

I would also advise you to take the time to organise free kick scenarios. As a baseline, I’d suggest leaving all cbs back and distribute with short passing in non-scoring range free kicks.

The tactics are really effective, all the players in the attack contribute to the goal. I am currently playing my first season in Naples and I won all the trophies, congratulations.

HI. will work for a 2.5 star team? thanks

Not too sure.. to give reference, when I started off I tested the tactic against Real Madrid and Barcelona using teams around the quality of Newcastle. I won comfortably in this testing. If you are around the same level as teams in your league, this tactic should dominate.

I don't play the new version. I'm a well documented boycotter after the Netflix farce. Not paying whatever it is a year just to have the new game.

However I just switched to the tactic on FMM23 with a Wolfsburg season going sideways, and it's won 4 games in a row so that's a promising start.

I also really like trying unorthodox tactics and this ticks that box.

I played 5 matches with the national team Guinea...I lost 6-0 to Egypt, 5-00 to Libya, 8-0 to South Africa and 3-0 to Gibraltar and Estonia. A total disaster

I'm not surprised as most of those are an awful lot stronger than Guinea.

Glad it’s working out for you👍
I also like outside of the box tactics and hate boring 1-0s which inspired this. Also, I think there’s only so much the traditional 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 can give you with the tactical capabilities on mobile.

I suspect your set piece settings are the issue. What are your corners, offensive and defensive free kick settings like across the pitch? This definitely matters with this tactic.

Hey, I've tried the tactic and I have a good side, I'm currently using Inter in 2029 and they've 3-Peated both the UCL, the League Cup, and the League, and I've been conceding alot and my players can't seem to score goals, tried it with Canada and it's the same issue, do you mind sending the tactic as a file? I think I might be missing something or maybe the instructions are different?

I started to test it with Borrusia Dortmund in my first year with the team and I beat Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions 2x0 in the first leg, It's a well-crafted tactic, my thanks to the creator

Can you share your tactic as a file please

Not sure why people ask this as you don't need a file.

Just literally copy out the instructions in your game.

I believe that's because the set pieces will be set up too, and as the poster said, they're master to this tactic.

Which you can still just copy out.

Any instructions not there, I'm sure the poster will provide.
