Football Manager 2021 Tactics - Massimiliano Allegri 3-5-2 Juve Tactics
To start of with - the system is clearly a 3-5-2.

philosophy of the tactic.
  • High tempo
  • possession based
  • structured
  • compact
  • disciplined


For the defence, what i found worked best was the higher line of engagement, with the lower defensive line. you could alternate if you aren't doing so well to standard. when i tested it, higher didn't work well as it broke the structure of the team. (against lower league teams do higher most definitely).


In the 15/16 season, when attacking, i looked more like a 3-1-4-2 but in defence a 3-5-2. so i dropped the holding midfielder to replicate this down to the wire.

the 3-5-2/3-1-4-2 allowed the players to take a man, and dribble more. the most often players to do this ive already set as 'dribble more' - however, i already selected 'run at defence'

no OI! ruins the tactic and shape!
