CDMs as CBs in WL

Just played 1st 5 ranking games in WL
3 out of the 5 games players using CDMs as CBs, madness . The 3 games they just gave me penalties galore.
Stupid idea.

    I've a 3atb formation I use when trying to score a goal. I use Kante as a CB, he is rock solid. It's between Kante, Semedo at cb, found Kante more consistent.

    Undestandable with high Agility and pitbull feeling he has. Also with headers being useless.
    Going to try it.
    Thanks

    It was Kante and Gbamin I was coming up against in 2 of the games but 4 at back.
    Good luck with your WL anyway mate

    I’m using 352 in game dropping Witsel back. He’s great.
  • I just found that if I straffe dribbled they fouled in box. Hence penalty galore

    I play Walker and A.Sandro as CBs. Both the best CBs ive used by far this year

    I switch mid desailly to CB in game and he's an absolute beast for me.

    Was against a player using Bakayoko at CB in WL yesterday and he was brilliant there. Like Zakaria, huge body for interceptions, strength, height and enough pace to win the foot race.

    Pick the right CDM and no reason they can't play CB. Viera is another good example.

    Moments Gattuso here. Much better CB than Diego Carlos and Varane, plays with Moments Ramos as a partner.
