3 hrs before I fly off …dead of the night…we’ve settled on a system for Atletico Madrid. This is my reinterpretation for FM. I wanted to maintain the vulnerability on the left flank, which Messi so exploited when Atletico lost to Barca, and I wanted to capture how Koke drives through the middle. Arda Turan’s support allowing Juanfran was also carefully considered.
We’ve managed to capture as well, the counter attacking thrust of the madrid’s side quick counters off breaks and we’ve settled for an asymmetric 442. When I get back from my trip I will list out in detail some of the PI’s and TI’s. For now, its a counter attacking, narrow system. First time out Atletico 2-0 Man City. Yeah we had to endure 30 shots on goal 🙁 90% off target lol.
