Football Manager 2021 Porto 4-2-3-1 Tactic | Team Guide | FM21

Porto 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 Porto Football Manager 2021 squad, their club structure, the relationship any potential managers will have with the board, expectations and possible tactics any FM21 manager can use.

About Porto 


FC Porto are a professional football team that ply their trade in the Primeira Liga. Along with Benfica & Sporting CP, Porto constitutes the Big 3 in Portuguese football. 

The club have played every season in the Primeira League ever since the league’s inception in 1934. Porto are the second most decorated team in Portugal with a total of 78 major trophies which includes 29 Primera League titles.

Porto are also the most successful Portuguese club in European competitions having won 7 trophies including 2 UCL titles. Portugal are also the defending champions of the Primeira Liga having won their 29th league title in the 2019-2020 season.

Board Requirements 


Porto are in the Champion’s League, the board requirements, once you take over, will be,

Board Requirements

    1. Win the Portuguese Primeira Liga

    2. Qualify for the knockout rounds of the Champion’s League.

    3. Win the PT cup.

Given that Porto are one of the top dogs in the Portuguese league, the board requirements are obviously pretty high. The board expects the manager taking over to defend the league title, win the PT cup and qualify for the knockout stages of the UCL. 

Additionally, you will be required to play attacking high tempo football, sign high reputation players especially from rivals and develop players using the club’s excellent youth system.

Porto have one of the best youth recruitment’s in the game and produce world-class player season after season. They have also very good youth and training facilities that help players reach their potential.

Squad, Formation and Tactical Style


There are quite a few tactical setups you could deploy with Porto, however, the best-suited ones will be Tiki Taka. This should provide the high tempo attacking football that the board demands and could make use of all the fine attacking talent at your disposal. However, against quality attacks or tough away games, one could go with a fluid counter attack tactic.

A 4-2-3-1 is the most stable formation for Porto. It will help you accommodate their stars in their preferred positions and also their attacking style of football.

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

Agustin Marchesin as a sweeper keeper.

Wilson Manafa & Ivan Marcano as wing-backs, Manafa is naturally attacking by nature and should be asked to bomb forward whenever possible.

Malang Sarr & Pepe will make up the centre back pairing and both can be played as Ball playing defenders considering that they’re comfortable on the ball.

Mateus Uribe to be played as a deep playmaker on defence duty & Marko Grujic to be played as a box to box midfielder.

Otavio Da Silva as an Attacking Midfielder will pop up with some crucial goals in important matches

Felipe Anderson on the left-wing as an Inside Forward & Jesus Corona on the right as an inverted winger.

Moussa Marega as a deep-lying or a pressing forward.

Key Players


    1. Moussa Marega


FM21 Moussa Marega

The Malian international is one of the mainstays of the Porto team and has contributed 10+ goals consistently over the past 3 seasons.

    2. Felipe Anderson


FM21 Felipe Anderson

Anderson who is unsettled and currently on loan from West Ham is a quality player from the wings. His versatility and ability to play on all positions across the midfield make it very easy to fit him into most setups and he will be one of the more consistent performers.

    3. Jesus Corona


Jesus Corona

The Mexican international is considered as one of the best players at the club. He is ambipedal and has is extremely versatile. His trickery and pace from the wings will be crucial in securing important results.

    4. Pepe


Pepe FM21

Although 37, Pepe is still one of the most important players for Porto. His experience is vital in organizing the defence and he can be an excellent mentor to the young players that come from the youth setup.

Weaknesses


1. The quality of attacking options is limited and goals will be hard to come by.

2. Despite producing world-class youngsters Porto have a reputation for being a feeder club and there is always the risk of players being poached by bigger clubs from Europe.

3. The overall quality of the back-ups may not be up to the club’s standards.

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. Romario Baro


FM21 Romario Baro

Baro is already considered as one of the more important players in the Porto squad and will only improve further in the future. His ability to play as an enforcer or a box to box midfielder makes it easy to fit into most systems.

    2. Evanilson


FM21 Evanilson

The young Brazilian forward just recently signed for Porto from Fluminese and could become a top striker in the game under the right manager. He can easily take become the main striker for the club in a couple of seasons.

    3. Tomas Esteves


FM21 Tomas Esteves

Currently, on loan at Reading, several European clubs are already keeping tabs on the young right back. He is one of the best young players in his position in the game and can go on to become a leading right-back for most clubs.

Porto do have a decent squad but these additions could further improve their depth and performances.

    · Darwin Nunez

    · Nuno Mendes

Summary
