I am really going to struggle with this one as I have an average EPL team in Div 5.
Looking from some advice on the best way to approach this. Any useful ideas on strategies, tactics, formations or players would be much appreciated.

    Yeah, this is a tough challenge. Honestly, I was shooting at will to get as many corners as possible - I had my fullbacks take the corners. Also, i was using the "attacking fullbacks" tactic on the d-pad in game. Just spamming in crosses to fb ibra lol. Took awhile, but got it done.

    Lol, good point. I played a **** ton of Dr today though... didn't have points for weekend league - submitted them last week and didn't play lol.

    I like playing division rivals during weekend league - the gameplay is slightly better and the competition is a lot less sweaty.

    I did it using NIF Luke Shaw :D
    Put him at left ST in a 41212(2) (swapped IG obv)

    Put him on my corners too, which helped. I managed it in about 8 games, division 3/4

    Does it work swapping them ingame?

    Of course it does? I just started delefau at RF, swapped to my desired formation...swapping him and shaw in the process and then subbing him straight off for my 87 kurzawa ....leaving shaw up top next to PIM kluivert...job done

    Move one of your defenders with good passing stats on CAM position. I'll use loan Valencia, hope to get it done in 10 games, also div 5.

    No, CDMs are midfielders not defenders.

    88 Robertson with 99 crossing might do the job..

    If you have rttf Alonso it's piece of cake. Just take every corner with him and put him lm in-game to cross the ball. First time this year that I was happy heading is so OP.

    Just did it in 6 games, used IF Robertson and brought Scream Mings/Mendy off the bench into the midfield

    I would sub a epl defender with good passing in at cam and cm along with having all of your full backs take your corners.

    Lukaku 💪😁

    Your talking about futbday Lukaku? Good idea but he scores on corners for me. From the back or do you use him uptop?
