Dawid's Best FM22 Tactic vs 3 centre-backs

In my opinion this is the best formation to play against a 3 CB setup on FM22. It also works against 2 CB. The key to success is to play 1v1 with CBs & all over the field once we take the ball.

Football Manager 2022 Tactics - Dawid's Best FM22 Tactic vs 3 centre-backs
Hello everyone.

Today I will tell you about the tactics that in my opinion is the best solution if our opponent plays with 3 central defenders (against 2 CB also works).

In the screenshots a few results against the teams that played with 3 CB + a few exceptions which I will tell below.

You can see in the picture, my squad is not amazing, so you can easily add this tactic to your squads.

As you can see, most of the matches I start with 4231 formation, but this is because by 20 minutes we can see how our opponent is playing and then make decisions about the formation.

The key to success in this formation is that we play 1v1 with central defenders and when we take the ball / start pressing we play 1v1 all over the field, so if we have faster and more agile offensive players, we win practically every duel.

Soon after taking the ball, the side defenders join attack, so we have 7v6 in attack + we have 4 players in the penalty area and there are only 3 central defenders.

When it comes to playing against teams that play 2 CB, I recommend that you use this formation as "fast", i.e. the one we use from 20-45 and 70-90 minutes.

Why? Because in these parts of the game we can chase the result or fight for a decisive goal and then in most cases our "better" opponent puts on the game in attack, so when we take over the ball we play 4v3 in defense (if they have CDM) + our CM and side players connect defenders.

When it comes to the key role, it is important that a player with good passes, dribbling and agility plays at Trequartista.
It is also important to play without the ball.
On the side "forwards" we give our wingers who are agile and have good technique + play without the ball.
