Not scoring goals and conceding on the counter-attack

Hi guys, I have a save with Derby playing a 4-2-3-1 vertical tiki-taka thinking that would be suitable as they have some very good technical players. Currently, I have one only one of my first 6 games. In every game, i dominate possession (58%+) and have up to 15 shots on target. However, I seemingly score a little number of goals, especially from my striker, and the other team have 1 or 2 shots on target and score at least one on the counter. I have tried different styles of play, all of which result in a similar outcome. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to fix this as it is making it difficult to play when I don't know how to fix it.
i'd try a less techinal tactic like Counter Attack or look to control possession i've found Tiki Taka is utter gash even with teams like Real Madrid
Try using a different tactic. I'd like to publish my tactic but I'm first experimenting a season with it. I'll keep you posted.
I may try counter attack and see if that works. Thanks
I'll give it a go thanks
Same problem here.
Trying to replicate Ancelotti 442 at Napoli. I have a lot of ball possession, i close my opponent in their box, tons of shot on and off target, than my opponents score at 90' on a counter attack.

Besides Insigne not beeing a striker, i found there's to much space between central midfielders and wingers (wich I use anyway as opposite foot winger, dunno how to say sorry).

Plus it's really hard to create a fluid and realistic game of triangles using the center of the fields and not the flanks.
Anyway, i'll keep trying different methods and see which one works better.
If you have any tips, that would be so appreciated
I have the same problem also in Napoli.
I dominate the entire game and some games the opponent, with 1 shot, 1 shot on target can score 1 goal, the same number of goals that my team score with 33 shots. I'm also a bit upset because 60% of that shots are off target. Any advices?

Agree, It's harder to implement tiki-taka when your player simply sub-par.

Take note of your coach tactics preference. Try to sign coach that have same preference with your main tactics.

In older version of FM you need to spare time to make sure the tactics ingrained deep in players bone. Dunno if this still valid in FM 2019.
