Today magicomonta presents a new tactical emulation; 4222 by Rangnick at Manchester Utd.
Non-possession phase 442
Phase of possession 4222
The construction of the maneuver starts from the center with the defenders who sort for the full-backs who lead on the ball finding the green light thanks to the movement of the two "midfielders" who, starting wide, go to huddle in the trocar in the position of finisher, taking the opposing full-back with them or if not following are however free for the discharge of the full-back himself carrying the ball
The development once the first possible pressing opponent has been overcome consists in serving the two attacking midfielders who will then look for the strikers with central holes with one that comes towards (CR7) to play the ball and the other attacks the depth (@rashford) or sometimes widens and seeks the phrasing again with the full backs themselves to take advantage of the external part of the field, also helped by a striker who goes into support.
The novelty brought by #ragnick is right here, where Manchester have raised their defensive line and the line of pressing going to take the opponents in their penalty area. The full backs are very aggressive on the outside and at the same time the central defensive on the opposing strikers, in front of them there are two ball retrievers like Fred or Mctominay and Pogba, with the latter that after retrieving the ball is very good at taking the offensive phase as well. The two "attacking midfielders" carry wide going to defend in the external part of the field thus forming the 442.
The explanation of the FM tactic can be found in the video.
I tested the tactics in the dry season, without the transfer market, without training, without making changes of form before or during the match and turnover only for suspensions or injuries
