FM 2015 Tactics - Antonio Conte 3-5-2 FM15 Tactics

A little on Antonio Conte

Playing as a midfielder, Conte became one of the most decorated and influential players in the history of Juventus. He stood out due to his tenacity and leadership, captaining the team and winning the UEFA Champions League and 5 Serie A titles, among other honours. He also played for the Italian national team and was a participant at the 1994 FIFA World Cup and the 2000 UEFA European Championship, where, in both occasions, the Italians finished in second place. Conte was known to be a combative, energetic, and tactically versatile midfielder throughout his career, who could play anywhere in midfield. Conte was mainly known for his accurate tackling and his ability to start attacking plays by switching the defence into attack; he also had a penchant for occasionally scoring spectacular goals, and was good in the air.

As a manager, Conte is known for using the 3-5-2 formation (or in certain cases, its more defensive variant, 5-3-2), fielding two pure strikers backed by a "number 10" attacking midfielder; Conte thus successfully resists the trend to use just one striker, prevalent in formations such as 4-2-3-1 that have come to dominate many clubs throughout Europe. In his time at Bari he was noted for his unorthodox 4-2-4 formation, a modification of the classic 4-4-2 in which the outside midfielders act as attacking wingers.

The FM15 Tactic

I tested this tactic with none other than the mighty Juventus team which Conte used to manage. My team was very solid at the back and lethal when going forward scoring 38 goals and conceding 9 in the Serie A.

My players flourished with this tactic especially Carlos Tevez who has score 17 goals in 20 appearances as well as creating 8 goals. There were other notable contributions throughout the team as my team raced to the top of the league by the Christmas break.


The creator of this magnificent tactic is no other than Roberto.Mancini so continue to show your support and go over to to view a wide selection of tactics he has created based on some coaches you know and also some you may not know.

    Great tactic, big fan of your work and of Conte. I just wanted to know how do you create such defensively solid tactics? Is there a guideline you always use to create tactics?

    I think it might be a mistake (fixed later in match) the switch between Bonucci and Asamoah. But Pogba up front is quite interesting. If he's trained as striker, it would be his best role actually. Just check his attributes for an advanced forward or complete forward (jaw dropping).

    The formation line-up on the first graphic made me cringe. Lol.
