Squad, Formation and Tactical Style


Marseille are a team that plays attacking football and prefer to move the ball to its wings quickly. A vertical Tiki-Taka style of football best suits the available squad of players. Alternatively, you can go for fluid counter-attacking football for tough away games where you need to maintain your defensive shape.

A 4-3-3 is probably the best suited formation to the available squad of players. This also helps them maintain the width and releasing the ball quickly to counter opponents.

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

FM21 Marseille Tactics



Steve Mandanda as a sweeper keeper.

Alvaro Gonzalez & Duje Caleta Car as the 2 centre backs.

Jordan Amavi & Hiroki Sakai as the 2 fullbacks. Increased crossing instructions are recommended.

Kevin Strootman, Valentin Rongier & Boubacar Kamara as the 3 midfielders with Strootman playing the role of a central midfielder, Rongier playing as a box to box midfielder and Kamara as a deep playmaker in defence duty.

Dimitri Payer & Florian Thauvin as the 2 wingers. They can be played as inside forwards or inverted wingers.

Dario Benedetto in a deep-lying forward’s role as the lone forward.

3. The transfer budget offered is definitely not in line with the club’s ambitions and goals and you will find it really difficult to get established players from the transfer market.
