Hi guys, i hope you can help me with this.
I just started a new Barca save and i played my first game against Man city in a friendly. i used 4-3-2-1 formation with 1 def mid, 2 centre mid and 2 att wingers with a striker. i hav xavi playing mcr as advanced playmaker as suggested by the assistand report with attack on. i also have him as playmaker so he gets more passes.

i have the match strategy on as control with fluid philosophy, shorter passing style and his attacking pass is set to short (nearly at the end of the bar) and focus passing through the middle.

In the match, he only made 24 passes with 20 completed and 1 key pass. my question is how come he only has 24 passes which is quite low. is it that i set the match speed to 90% (1 slide to the right end which is max). i really want to play the dominant posession football that barca plays and a dominant midfield. is it the match speed that effects the end stats?

even though its the first game i expected more and i see alot of ppl here who manages 100+ passes with their barca midfield.

any help in this would be awesome and any tips to improve possession (only 56% against city). thanks in advance XD
