View Full Version : Symmetric 3-5-2
05-12-2003, 11:31 AM
I've got a big game next week, and I'm betting my opponent is going with a symmetric 3-5-2. Is there any set of orders that would be more effective against this (i.e. one CD to extra IM)? I don't really see any way to get any added advantage here, but thought I'd ask ya'll.

you could play your two best passing inner mids with an offensive setting, thus improving your central attack rating. This will lower your central defense rating though...

I just played a much better team who favored that style and won on the road 2-0. I played my 4-5-1 as always, but made one minor change. I played with 2 defensive wingbacks, 2 off IMF's, 1 off. Winger and 1 winger towards the middle (the one change) to help with the midfield. 1 of my forwards was an extra IMF and I actually won possession and didn't allow a single shot. Maybe it was luck, or good strategy. I don't know and I don't care, the result was great and it may help you out if you have a similar team player wise :)

Generally speaking, if you beat the 3-5-2 to possession, you're stand a solid chance to beat them like NAIWF did. So, uhh, get possession. :)
Puke green socks supposedly help.

Just saying symmetric is a bit vague... What are his ratings? And what are yours?
