Atletico Madrid Football Manager 2021 tactic and team guide. Club vision, tactics, key players, youth prospects and potential transfers in and out.


Here is a brief analysis of the Atletico Madrid squad, their club structure, relationship any potential managers will have with the board, expectations and possible tactics any FM21 manager can use.

About Atletico Madrid


Atletico Madrid or Atletico are a professional football club that ply their trade in the La Liga. In terms of league titles won, most recently in 2014, Atl├ętico Madrid are the third most successful club in Spanish football – behind Real Madrid and Barcelona. Atl├ętico have won La Liga on 10 occasions, including a league and cup double in 1996; the Copa del Rey on 10 occasions; two Supercopa de Espana and one Copa Eva Duarte.

In Europe, they won the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1962,  were Champions League runners-up in 1974, 2014 and 2016, won the Europa League in 2010, 2012 and 2018, and won the UEFA Super Cup in 2010, 2012 and 2018 as well as the 1974 Intercontinental Cup. 

The club are relatively successful and are a constant presence in the UEFA Champion’s League.

Board Requirements


As always, Atletico are in the Champion’s league once again and you will be replacing a very successful manager in Diego Simeone, the board requirements should be;

FM21 Atletico Team Guide - Tactic - Board

    1. Challenge for the La Liga title.

    2. Make the QF of the UEFA Champion’s League

    3. Work towards becoming self-sustainable

There will be no particular demands from the board in terms of how you want to play as long as you achieve the results. However, the club will ask you to strictly adhere to the wage budget and sign players who can later be sold for a profit.

Atletico Madrid have excellent training facilities and a capable youth system. However, you will need to work on improving these after you stabilize your position at the club.

Squad, Formation and Tactical Style


Atletico are a team that generally like to play on the counter. They like playing a fast tempo game and release their wide midfielders into attacking positions. 

They are also a team that puts a lot of weightage on set pieces, especially corners. So a Fluid counter-attacking style of football is best suited to go with their strengths.

A 4-2-3-1 is the best formation to go with for Atletico considering their players.

A rough example of what your line-up would look like in a 4-2-3-1 formation is as follows;

FM21 Atletico - Tactic



Jan Oblak as a sweeper keeper.

Jose Gimenez & Felipe as the 2 ball-playing centre backs.

Kieran Trippier & Renan Lodi as the 2 wing-backs. Increased crossing instructions to take advantage of Trippier’s naturally high crossing stats is recommended.

Koke as the deep playmaker with defence duty & Saul as a Mezzala who can join in on attacks if needed.

Thomas Lemar & Angel Correa as the 2 wide midfielders/wingers. Lemar operates as a winger & Correa as an inside forward on the right side of the pitch.

Joao Felix operates as either a Shadow Striker or an Attacking midfielder.

Luis Suarez as either an Advanced Forward or a Deep lying forward.

Alternatively, you can go with a 4-1-2-1-2 diamond with Lemar operating as an advanced midfielder and moving Koke to a wider midfielder role.

Key Players


    1. Jose Gimenez


FM21 Jose Gimenez

Jose Gimenez is a very accomplished central defender who is very mature for his age. He is also a threat from set-pieces.

    2. Koke


FM21 Koke

Koke is the club captain and is a versatile midfielder who can play multiple positions. His vision and set-piece ability make him a crucial part of the Atletico lineup.

    3. Jan Oblak


FM21 Jan Oblak

Jan Oblak has one of the highest save percentage amongst all keepers and the main reason why Atletico keep a lot of clean sheets. His fitness and form are very important to your season.

    4. Luis Suarez


Luis Suarez

Although he may be past his prime, Suarez is still among the best strikers in the world and can certainly take the game away from any opponent on his day.

Weaknesses


1. The quality of backups in the squad may not be up to the quality and could prove fatal if your squad is affected by injuries.

2. You run the risk of some talents being poached by other clubs especially in search of higher wages.

3. Some key players are ageing and with the budget quite low it is not easy to find able replacements.

Youth Prospects


There are a few exciting young prospects in the ranks who have the potential to be some of the best players in the league. A few examples are,

    1. Joao Felix


FM21 Joao Felix

Despite not having a great debut season at Atletico, Joao Felix remains one of the best wonderkids in the game and will develop into a world-class star in most saves.

    2. Manu Sanchez


FM21 Manu Sanchez

The 20-year-old left-back already is good enough to be a backup and will only develop further. His ability to win tackles and duels makes him the perfect fit at Atletico.

Potential Transfers (in)


With Atletico having problems with their bench you definitely need to bolster the quality of the squad to compete with the big 2. These players could be welcome additions to the side.

    · Sebastiano Esposito

    · Riyad Mahrez

Potential Transfers (Out)


These players may be surplus to requirements at the club or may not be of the expected quality.

    · Stefan Savic

    · Diego Costa

    · Hector Herrera

Summary


To summarise, Atletico Madrid are a very exciting club to manage for many FM21 Managers. The allure of managing one of the best wonderkids in Football Manager 2021, Joao Felix, and the prospect of dethroning the Spanish giants is an enticing prospect. Are you up for this challenge?
