Arrigo Sacchi's 4-4-2: High Pressure, Attacking Tactic for Top Teams and Underdogs

  1. know somebody, if a striker scores more, when left footed is on the right and a right footed ob the left site?

  2. started off well and now just fell apart and dont know what happened. Conceding so many goals and cannot score. One of the main problems I find is that one of the cbs come out to pressure alot leaving space behind. The other player makes the run and gets slipped through very easily. Any ideas on how to adapt?


  3. Hi this tactic looks great i'll try it with SV Reid in Austria but i dont have a good asst coach what would you suggest to me for OI :? thanks

  4. Used this tactic in my Blackburn save i also have made a story for it check it out and it has worked phenomenally

  7. how do people adapt this tactic for away games, seems to be awful.

  9. Hello, what size pitch?

    Hi there, you need to field a higher amount of defence-minded players - I will have 4 good DMs, 2 midfield generals, 1 defensive, 1 creative. In tough away games I play the def-minded player + one of the generals. Also I get versatile players in such as full-backs who can play on the wing (e.g. Camilo Zuniga) and play them on the wing in tough way games to help break down attacks.

    Hi Hropek,

    You have tried this tactic before with the same team (I think) and found success. Must be something you are doing.

    What team are you playing as? Need a quick, clever back line otherwise they will mess up and not be able to recover. It is a high press tactic afterall.

    I am doing the same and did not work, maybe because there is 2016 and 2013 and now i have a weak team.

  16. Pitch size? Thanks in advanced

    Minimum pitch size, so you can press high without leaving huge gaps behind.

  29. I was bored of my other tactic so decided to give this a try. I'm still shocked at the outcome, unbelievable season:

    Attachment 396179Attachment 396181

    I was playing on the latest updates, so the Southampton team is reasonably well suited to this tactic. I'll be looking to maybe replace Lallana with Deulofeu during pre-season.

    You're a genius, Sean. Cheers.

  33. How do you play at away games with this tactic? I just simply can't find a way to be successful away from home with it..

    In home games, as a team which got newly promoted, i almost win against the top teams in the league playing on a equal level to them. But away I get raped by simply everyone in the league, I just don't get it. Playing at home or away shouldn't be such a big influence in my opinion..

  34. I said it before and I say it again, this tactic is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

  35. Going to use this with swansea see how i get on looks awsome

    Any tips? Anything I might be doing wrong? I'm wasting a lot of points against weak teams, nothing is happening during the game and it ends up to be a draw... Thx.

    Introduction

    First of all a quick introduction to myself. I am a long time FM player since CM 01/02 and its pretty safe to say I'm an FM addict. I've uploaded one or two tactics before for FM13 but since the last few patches I haven't created something that I feel is worthy of publishing for others to use - until now! I like to base my tactics on philosophies that have worked in the real world; I am a professional football coach and the tactical elements of the game are what enthuse me in real life. So this tactic is based on the philosophy behind Arrigo Sacchi's 4-4-2 approach. Sacchi played with high intensity and a high defensive line. This enabled him to squeeze the play in the middle of park, and ensured that the distance between his defensive and forward lines was never more than 25 metres. Essentially, this constituted naturally occurring pressing—perhaps one of the first in football with such velocity. Sacchi reasoned that by squeezing the pitch, in order for his opponent to get through his side, they'd need to break down three lines of players in quick succession. Not many managed it. Attacking-wise, there was no one strict way to break down the opposition. Chances were created through build-up/passing play through the middle, crosses from wide and counter-attacks. Sacchi was a proponent of multi-purpose players. Not fond of the specialist, he looked for all of his players to be capable of every job on the field, which is why his interchanging 4-4-2 worked so well.The midfielders were well-rounded and functional in every area, his forwards chased and his defenders pushed up. Teamwork was what his side were predicated on, and it was teamwork that allowed them to become one of the greatest sides in footballing history.

    For more information on Arrigo Sacchi and the basis of this tactic, this is a good read:
    Arrigo Sacchi's Method - The Football Coach


    The Tactic

    Attachment 322903Attachment 323600

    As you can see the tactic resembles a 4-4-2, however with a slight change of two DMs as opposed to MCs. This enabled the tactic to be a lot more solid defensively, bringing the lines of the players a lot closer. The Sweeper Keeper does his job sweeping up behind the back line, two FBs on support allowing them the licence to get forward, but not at the expense of their defensive duties. The two DCs act as ball playing defenders, able to pick out those quick counter passes once the ball is won. The DMs act as box-to-box players, supporting the attack and defence. The wingers provide the outlets for the attack, pushing forward once the ball is won, but also have defensive duties in winning the ball back. A complete striker supports the advanced forward, although both are equally important in both assisting and scoring goals. With the emphasis on fluid play and well-rounded, high pressing players a general basis of teamwork, work rate and determination are needed for this tactic to work. Lazy and/or selfish players will ruin the cogs in the machine. There is no target man or playmaker as individual creativity and decisions is important in this tactic.

    Player Recommendations
    Below is a small list of players that I recommend for each role. These players are aimed at mid/lower table Premier Division sides - but this can be flexible as some will be good for greater clubs and some will go to lower reputation sides to. ALL players can be acquired for under 10 million and don't start on ridiculous wages, but the prices are estimating asking prices (will differ from game to game). Star rating is my own personal opinion of how recommendable they are based on their value for money, how well they fit into the tactic and their performance.

    General Player Tips
    The above attributes are what I would look for in my players. If I was managing a mid-table standard Premier League side I would look for the Primary Attributes to average out at 15 and Supporting Attributes at 12/13. In terms of the base attributes, I would not sign a player who is weak in 2 or more of those areas (less than 10) and ideally will all be 14+. Certain players will not fit the system. An Ibrahimovic or Balotelli will struggle, think more along the lines of a Rooney or Tevez. Hard working players, determined to succeed and put the team before their own ego. A big tip that I give is to use your personnel in your squad wisely by picking the right players in the right games. For example, I have 4 strong wingers for my San Marino (club) team. 2 of which are much more attacking / creativity orientated and two that can put more of a shift in defensively. Against the big teams i.e. Juventus I will often favour the more defensive wingers, whereas go with the attacking wingers against the bottom teams. Also during the games, if I am chasing a win I will bring on the attack-minded winger or looking to hold onto a lead bring on the defensive winger. Same goes for the defensive midfielders. Versatile players are a great asset to have in a squad using this tactic. For example players who can play at full back and the wing, centre back and defensive mid, forward and wing.


    During Pre-season the focus should be completely match-based and tactics only, until the tactic is fully fluid. Once this is achieved, the above is how I set out my training. Arrigo Sacchi was well known for his 'Shadow Play' training methods, which is essentially defensive positioning training.


    Opposition Instructions

    Ideally you'd have an assistant manager that you can trust to set this up for you (16+ tactical knowledge + good defensive coach). However if you don't feel they're up to it, here's a few tips:
    Close down always - slow players in midfield or attack and players with poor composure/concentration/decisions in defence or midfield.
    Tight Mark - midfielders or attackers with poor pace.
    Hard Tackling - any players with Bravery under 10.
    Show onto weaker foot - any player who has reasonable or less for their weaker foot ability.



    No Shouts Used
    I have never used any shouts on any of my tactics, although feel free to use them if you want to. Bear in mind that some shouts will have no effect as I have altered the sliders.


    As you can see I have had a tremendous amount of success using the tactic. I'm currently taking up the Great San Marino Challenge and its going well for club and country so far! Straight promotions to Serie A followed by a 3rd place in first season (started using this tactic part way through first serie A season and pushed from 8th to 3rd). 2nd season in Serie A (4th in total) I managed to win the league using this tactic with a team that was not strong at all! (See best 11 for the team that won it for me). Also made the Italian Cup final and Semi-finals of the Europa League. This season its going strong again, with just one loss in the league, 2 points behind Juve with a game in hand and comfortable through to the knockout stages of the champions league. National Team wise under this tactic the results have been great! Only narrow loses against big nations and several competitive wins, including a 2-1 win over Greece. This is with pretty much the same squad as the one we recently saw on TV thrashed by England 8-0 as my re-gens have been poor thus far (Giacomo Hirsch is the best to come through the ranks by far). I decided to start a tester with Granada and as you can see it working wonders for them there, sitting top of the league with just one loss at the Nou Camp with the average squad they start with plus the signings in the screen shot.

    San Marino Progress with the tactic:
    2014/15 - Serie A 3rd Place (plugged in tactic when in 7th Place, 8W, 3D 1L)
    2015/16 - Serie A Champions, Italian Cup Finalists & Europa League Semi-finalists
    2016/17 - Quadruple Winners (Serie A, Champions League, Super Cup, Italian Cup)
