Football Manager 2020 Tactics - Hansi Flick's 4-2-3-1 Bayern FM20 Tactic by RDF
Hans-Dieter Flick has been amazing for Bayern Munich so far this season. Since he took over he’s managed to change the tactical style and has made them even more dynamic.

Under Flick Bayern lineup in a 4-2-3-1 formation. It contains a back four. In front of that, the two DMs form a double pivot together. In attacking midfield, they use two wingers who play very narrowly, operating in half spaces and creating overloads, with the attacking midfielder (AMC) playing just behind the ST.

When Bayern are in possession, their full-backs push higher up the pitch and provide width on the flanks. Typically, their LB would be the more adventurous of the two, whilst the RB is very capable of helping building attacks and keeping possession with the midfielders. The wingers play narrowly and occupy the half-spaces. With these movements, when in transition, the shape with become asymmetrical. The midfielders will also have different roles. One midfielder would often back line to create a back three in possession, or just in front of the two central defenders, while the other midfielder stayed in a central area but also could be the link between deeper areas of the pitch and the more advanced.

An important player when it comes to creating chances and general attacking play is the AM. His abilities to be able to find the spaces is VERY improtant. Muller is extremely important in terms of chance creation. He likes to drift into areas where he can create overloads for his side such as the half-spaces or even the wing. This then creates space and freedom for the main man, the STRIKER….LEWANDOWSKI!!!

Another key tactical importance is their pressing. A more narrow shape, if Bayern lose the ball, enables them to execute an effective pressing game. Especially their overloads help them to immediately press the opposition, specially in the opponents deeper areas.

    @tot isis - hello. i disagree, a good tactic doesn't and shouldn't mean you should be able to use on smaller teams. If that was the case, then managers like Pep would be able to manage low quality players with his tactics, which he can't but doesn't mean his tactics are bad

    But also, this is a recreation. They are not designed to work with anybody, they're not even designed to be great FM tactics, its just a replication of some playing styles and player movments

    Does this tactic work for small teams?
    For me, a good tactic is one that works well mainly for small teams, also that can achieve goals in any team.
    When you have strong teams with financial strength to hire good players, you can use any tactic published here, it would work well.
