Squad, Formation and Tactical Style


Leverkusen are a team that generally like to play on the counter. They like playing a fast tempo game and release their wide midfielders/wing backs into attacking positions. So a fluid counter-attacking style of football is best suited to go with their strengths.

A 4-2-3-1 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 4-2-3-1 formation is as follows;
