I use this Tactic in my Real Jaen game I am currently on a Three game win streak.
I used a similar tactic with atletico madrid last year and I was very happy with my results. I won in my first season the spanish league, spanish cup, euro cup and both super cups. In my second season I won all 6 titles.
