FIFA 21 Custom Tactics to Replicate EPL Teams From Pedrito79

OS user pedrito79 is doing some great work where he takes the data from WhoScored.com to create FIFA 21 custom tactics that replicate real-life teams. His focus has been on the EPL and the EFL Championship, but those are not the only teams he’s doing. He is also taking requests from the community and showing off his work every step of the way.

FIFA 21 Custom Tactics – How To

Heading to the thread is the best way to look at all the EPL and EFL teams completed so far. The community requests are also there and separated into a “miscellaneous” section.

Basically, pedrito79 is converting the way teams are playing in real life into a FIFA language that he shows off in the custom tactics/instructions menu. Using Manchester United as an example, here is a summary of their strengths and weaknesses from WhoScored.

He uses this team data, and then also tunnels down into individual player data that coincides with the position that person plays on the team. For example, here is a look at Mason Greenwood.

Then here is pedrito79 going through how to actually set the tactics for Manchester United position by position in a YouTube video.

This is the structure used for every FIFA 21 custom tactics showcased by pedrito79, which is good because you get the data and an easy-to-follow tutorial.

One thing to note about custom tactics in FIFA is these tactics tie more to the position than the player. So if you end up getting a new player who has a totally different style than the player there now in real life, you might need to make some tweaks.

Lastly, you can set custom tactics and instructions for AI teams, but it’s not the cleanest system to keep them locked in game to game (usually easier to just use a second controller and set them at the start of a game). So I would recommend using these tactics more for your own team than trying to get the whole EPL playing the “right” way. However, you can still do that if you’d like, but I would hope it’s easier to tie custom tactics to AI teams in the future.

    Thanks for sharing these, Pedrito. Hope to see more and looking forward to trying them out.

    How would this work? Would I have to change tactics before every match?

    You could edit the tactics before a match using a second controller for the CPU team, then kickoff and switch that team back to CPU control. This is best for changing a team once you're in career mode, although it will deactivate trophies (if you care and not that there are many for offline play anyway).
    Ideally, you save a custom squad with the formation/tactics edits and use that squad file when starting your CM. Just be sure to always save a backup file or two because FIFA likes to overwrite files when you download updates needed for online modes.
    Hello Guys, I wait your feedback soon. Just I report the real tactics on fifa.
    My intention is do all top 5 Leagues and if it interest also the Sky Bet Championship.
    But obviously it all depends on the general interest of the people.
    When I will update the first post I will inform whit a new post.

    Also, if I transfer players or sub players... I assume the instructions you have set in these current tactics are player specific? Not formation specific? Does that make sense?

    The instruction is specific for the position for fifa 21. So if you change player the instruction remains

    But I should consider work rates to pair with the instructions for each position probably so I don’t have to change the instructions. Ok makes sense. Thank you.

    Gary Bhoy, I did answer you in Youtube about Celitc FC. Sadly for that League whoscored is not detailed. So I cannot know for example if Celtic play whit long pall or pass speed etc.
    Pedrito I have now spoiler tagged the teams in the first post to make it easier for folks to scroll through very helpful and awesome work by you.
    Hi Piero,
    You're doing a hard work of analysis of the real data taken from the whoscored.com site, adapting them in Fifa engine:
    really impressive and useful.
    After my friend Ricardo's great job in making his beautiful CTTs, nobody had tried to do it.
    Thanks for your effort and keep up the good work!!!
    All my best, amico mio
    I have also added every single fan request you've done to the original post in a new "miscellaneous" section and added Bristol City to the EFL section.

    Thank you for these. They are great.
    Where's Liverpool?

    Do these only work if you own a second controller?

    Couldn't you theoretically switch to the other team after load and then just switch back to first player? I can't say I've done this personally so I'm not sure overall.
    It does but I believe also if you edit team sheets in the main menu the stay between squad updates as long as you don't "download latest" in the cm start up. Just download updates from the main menu edit team section. Just like stadium name changes.

    add, if you change tactics with the second controller you will lose the changes for future matches. Always better to change tactics from the main menu

    What about MLS?
    Sent from my LG-G710 using Operation Sports mobile app

    Hi IrishSalsa,
    It depends on the support I notce for the other leagues, because doing the MLS means analyzing and studying over the teams almost 300 players.
    But obviously for the moment no League takes precedence, I repeat it all depends on the support I can receive and requests
    Today about 9 videos of custom tactics and instructions are coming compared to the whoscored website:
    Coventry City, Rotherham, QPR, Barnsley, Preston, Blackburn Rovers, Cardiff. Huddersfield, Real Socidead
    So ready Premier League and EFL ,I won't hide from you that since I started this project I haven't played a single game anymore. For about 3 weeks. As of today, requests with donations take precedence because I have more than 50 requested teams in my agenda, including Leagues.

    The amount of time and effort you have put into creating this, is staggering. Thank you so much for your hard work.

    As you know Fiorentina recently changed their coach, Iachini was sacked, Prandelli took over and played with a totally different formation, probably with a 4-3-1-2.
    Meanwhile, I did Iachini's training with a hint of Prandelli's training, inside the video. Maybe we will wait another 3 weeks to do a new formation
    Furthermore, as you can see from a photo in the actual formation, Chiesa and Ceccherini are on the pitch , this is because whoscored, as previously written, the formations based on the actual minutes played by the players.Anyway don't worry because I have replaced them with the actual owners of the moment.

    As you may know whoscored does not consider Serie B as an important league so it does not make detailed statistics so in this case I have taken as a point of reference the friends of assoanalisti , my reference site for years, Here is what follows:


    POSSESSION PHASE
    Construction
    Monza always tries to build its action from below. With the ball in the possession of goalkeeper Lamanna, the two central defenses Paletta and Scaglia open and with Fossati, central midfielder, creating a rhombus, a geometric figure that often allows a player to be brought into the open ball by overcoming the first pressure line of the opposing team. it must then be lowered.

    In the event that the opposing team decides to systematically press Fossati, the team does not break down and applies rotations with the midfielders to evade the pressure. In these cases it is in fact Armellino, the right central midfielder, to lower himself and allow Fossati to get up as well as Morosini who acts as a playmaker, rising further. The rotation therefore allows Monza to dribble from the low areas of the field. In some cases Fossati, again to evade the opposing pressure, lowers himself between the two central defensive units with low outsiders who rise to lower the fifth opponents and in these cases the Monza setting applies the concepts of a defense to 3.

    For the Balotelli Fans :

    I recreated Balotelli in fifa 21 since he was not even placed among the free agents. At the time of editing you can't even choose the "free agent" category but you can solve the problem, for example first put Balotelli in any team, then from the other menu you transfer him to free agent and that's it. For any doubt let me know.
    Another thing, better not put known as (Super Mario) otherwise his name and surname will disappear in the main menu of the player.
