How do you manage to play against an opponent who is ptb and playing on the counter attack?
Say they score a lucky goal, you are playing better, get to build the play well but encounter a box always full of people so you can't find an entrance and no space to shoot without a block. How do you counter that?
I play 4231 narrow, low (48) pressure, low (55) aggression. Cdms and fullbacks stay back and the rest pretty much balanced. Sometimes I tell my st to get in behind and press the defense, but in these situations it doesn't help.
Usually in these cases I get 60% or more possession, usually finish losing 1-0 and don't know what I could've done different..
Any ideas? How do you approach this problem?
