The Mine Sweeper
|Role||Tight Marking||Closing Down||Tackling||Show Onto Foot|
I love sweeper tactics and I found this one FMScout made by real life wunderkind Mathias Svenson. From the FMScout page:
"Upfront it's running 3 strikers, roles doesn't matter they still exploit the match engine and most broken tactics use 3 up front. For the midfielders I'm running a BWM on defend and a Mezzela on support. You want these guys to win the ball and just play it forwards to the forwards, or play it out wide to the wingbacks. The wingbacks occupy the entire flanks and should be fast and good on the ball as they play a big role in the tactic. The central defenders are ball playing defenders, as they do the job defensively and play the ball around. The big part in the tactic is the sweeper, he sits back, plays the ball around, last man tackles. After using this tactic I was really intrigued to see Baresi and Beckenbauer play...
...The tactic puts a lot more emphasis on playing the ball around than other broken tactics, which is just hoof it up to many forwards and hope for them to score. The ball gets shifted around a lot in defense and is either played up the wing or a pass to the DLF, it's aesthetically pleasing to see the team play."
