I can't compete with 5-2-1-2 teams set to ultra defensive, sure I understand it's more about holding up play and looking for opportunities that way but I don't have enough support and get hit by counters from Wellinton and Pato for example
Any advice against these kinds of formations?
With 5 at the back formations, keep your build up play in midfield and set your tactics to Posession.
Just keep passing around and eventually they will bring defenders out of position allowing you to thread a ball through. They are the most annoying formations to play against, as quick 1-2 counter-attacks dont work, so just be patient, keep posession and let them make the mistake.
