Penetrating a packed in defense
« on: November 21, 2011, 03:25:36 PM »
I'm set to play a bot team that has a 5-3-2 lineup and I was wondering if anyone has any advice on penetrating such a densely packed defense, aside from selecting players that will counter their tactics (probably zone) most effectively. This lineup is without wing players (aside from defenders) so I figured I'd try to work it down the flanks, but I wonder whether I should try to emphasize creativity, degree of attack, long shots, or something else? Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks in advance!
 ;)

Attack from both sides and long shots, having a good set piece taker can help you too!

Does it work or not?

Go full force for your attack! Attack both sides right away.

 ;) I would go about this in a different way.  I would put out my best strike and then lay down a pipeline of service until his constant efforts can't be stopped.  Attacking, to more attacking to all out attack.  I would suspect that you will have possession due to your attacking formation. The key here is to provide service that none of the defenders can prevent. Very high passing AMC should do the job and then wait for the AMC and FC to combine.
I wouldn't use long shots because I think you need to maximize the quality of chances you make being there will be many blocked shots and tackles.  Zone defence and have the defenders pushing forward. You should find your way through the traffic.

I suggest going down the center with shorter passes to make sure they aren't intercepted easily, this will minimize how many defensive players that can intercept.

In my opinion, i agree with Carlos, long shots help a lot against packeted defence. A lot of WCL matches have been decided by long shots....
