FM 2016 Tactics - 4-4-2 Rui Vitoria Benfica 2016-17

4-4-2 Rui Vitoria Benfica Season 2016-17

Highly successful tactic for 2016-17 season SL Benfica. Winner of League, SuperCup, Taça da Liga, Portugal Cup, Champions League.

GR-taking advantage of the enormous ability to place balls from a distance by Ederson

DR/DL-function as open Wings, with ability to cross and subsequent advances in attack

DC- dynamic between a DC that rises in coverage, leaving the other behind to compensation

MCE-capable defensive coverage and disarm completely team balances

MCD-Mobile Organizer; the balance and the Lung team, offers to the companions pass lines, gets the ball in positions more indented and comes to vertically attack

MOD/MOE-advanced interiors, cut inside and roam constantly, giving enormous momentum to attack.

F9-perfect for Jonas; on a mission free, traverses the striker, appearing between lines

AC -Open spaces for colleagues, appearing also in end zones

The passes are made so short between the defenders and the first medium so as to overtake the first line of the opponents, then the distribution is mixed according to the rapid movement of the elements of the attack

Begin the game with slower tempo, alternating with Quick Tempo according to the swell of the result.
Switch attack the flanks or in the Middle during the game to surprise opponents.

The best tactic that created until today ... absolutely surprising in its effectiveness, in football practiced and the results obtained.

Against Stronger opponents: Change to Counter-Atack, Full Backs Automatic and lower F9 into a Ofensive Midfield to complete the middle

If Op plays in a classic 4-3-3, ask for the F9 for a tight mark on the Def Mid and the Full Backs on the op wingers

    Frankino, as time forwards try to swap in beetween Attack from Middle and Attack from Flanks using Overlaps and even change the way of crossing. This confuses the game engine so that they don´t know how to stop you. It works perfectly!

    Really pedronuno? So,...what is your sugestion?
  • pedronuno_12's avatar
    Benfica never played like that.

    You´re right johnpeter, but you know, we always change things a little bit to match the game engine and besides, in Portugal lower teams plays a lot in counter attack.

    I am now using exploit flanks with overlaps instead and it works very well too

    Just think Benfica plays with the defense a bit higher, but yeah thats the right system.

    Physical aptitude first 2-3 weeks, then team cohesion until end of pre-season, Balanced during season. Pre-Match on Tactics and then according to opponent.

    Give it a try and please let me know if you have any sugestions
