The tactic is tested with Serie A, Bundesliga and Turkish Super League so far and returned impressive results.
First of all, physical capabilities of players need to be high to be able to keep up with the extremely high tempo. Wing-backs are the most important part of the team, they need to have high work rate and at least average dribbling / crossing skills.
For the ball playing defender, first touch attribute is crucial to avoid possession losses in the defensive area.
An advanced forward can be used instead of a complete forward, but off the ball and composure skills of the advanced forward should be high.
Because the tactic already offers a well-balanced structure, there is no need for too many adjustments if you're playing with smaller teams.
Yet still some minor adjustments can be made in case of certain conditions:
- If the physical attributes of players are not good, tempo should be adjusted to higher from extremely high, and the pressing intensity should be adjusted to more urgent from extremely urgent.
Please try the tactic and provide feedback so that we can further improve the tactic together.
Have a great game !
