does anyone else find that when they play a team in europe it is almost impossible to win no matter how good the team you have is. i just played Napoli with a Barca team that has won the league five years in a row and they beat me 3-1,but the thing is i had 20 shots 8 on target and they had 7 shots 4 on target.
that doesnt mean a thing . it depends how u play on the day. try alter your tactics for away matches
i have tried using two dm and an am instead of my normal 4-3-3, i have tried going more attacking and i have my front three on finishing training and nothing works. i just played Shakhtar,i had 23 shots and 11 on target they had 9 shots 2 on target yet i drew with them 2-2.
I never go defensive in Europe on my Chelsea one. I play a 4-3-1-2 and tend to start it as standard if i get a good start change it to control bad start I switch it to overload. When my strikers aren't performing I will look at fining them or having a chat and telling them that there playing poorly. It's so frustrating when you dominate a game and can't score. Don't be afraid to get aggressive with them.
Yeah i have been aggressive in the past and they did not respond well to it i fined busquets and he requested a transfer same thing happened to mascherano. i will try and change to overload i we are losing. I normally start on control because i like to keep possession but i will definitely try that out.
Never had a problem with this. 3rd season with Spurs and just beat Juventus 4-1 away from home, we dominated them aswell. Attacking 4-3-3 formation. You must just be unlucky mate.
If i am playing away against a much better team then i use a sweeper/libero behind a flat back 4 with 3 central midfielders and 2 strikers set to counter attack - i've never conceded a goal (though i haven't scored many either!)
