Omega on paper appears to be light in the midfield with the 32230 no DM no CM.
But... On attack:
The CD libero pushes forward to become like a DM - the inverse of a halfback.
The IWBs push forward to become Centre Midfielders. Effectively becoming like diagonal box-to-box midfielders.
The Engache (previously i used an AP) is the lynchpin/pivot for this system & the Shadow strikers push on into the box.
This creates an overload formation of 2152 on attacks (see attached screenshot)
And... in Defence:
The IWBs (diagonal B2B midfielders) are covered both by the ML/MR who are on support duty as well as the RCD & LCD who are instructed to be wider. The Shadow strikers lead the press from the front & provide more defensive coverage vs using strikers.
I use this formation when i'm up against a team of equal or lesser ability.
- like almost all formations it's susceptible to counter attacks & long balls.
- your IWBs attributes need to be more like CMs rather than the orthodox LB/RB.
- The only formation that has "troubled" this is 442.
