Learning this feature will allow you to not just select teams, but also allows you to assign roles, change formations, buy & sell players and many more.

At the start it was also tedious for us to manage players, & in this Article we are going to guide you on how to use Team Management feature in Dream League Soccer 2019-2020.

Team Management

In the beginning, you have to choose a captain out of the options given to you by DLS. Further when you take over your team, excluding your captain 10 random players are added to your squad . The games features are very dynamic and the controls are also easy to use. For building a strong team you have to select the best team and keep on winning multiple games to get selected for the next Division.

It is very important to choose the best possible starting line up. You can do that easily by just dragging the player whom you want to change from the starting 11 and dropping him on the player in the substitutes section or vice versa. Keeping in mind, a player should be allowed to play in his preferred position to get the best output. Players in your team will be from different nationalities, but will play together as a team. As you keep on playing with your team, the chemistry between the players keep on increasing, which helps in getting good results.

I would like to suggest making substitutions in between the match. When the players are tired substitute them with other players (same positions recommended). You are allowed to make a maximum of 3 substitutions in a game.  Depending upon the abilities of the players you will have to decide with whom to start. As you start getting new players with high ratings it will be difficult for you to choose. Use your tactics wisely and smartly.

Formation is always a key to your playing style, it defines your way of playing. Basically, when you form your team the second most important thing is to choose the best formation for your team. There are 12 different sets of formation available in the Team Management section of your squad. All of the formations are unlocked by default, so you can try each one of them and choose the best fit for your squad.

Each formation has different style of playing, Some of the formations are best for Attacking and some are for Defending. Formation is not the only thing to rely on. But it is important to focus on the formation style, to break through your opponent’s side. Setting an attacking formation can help you score a lot of goals and put your opponent under pressure. On the other side setting a defensive formation can help you in conceding less goals or no goals as each player will have a defensive role to play.

These are few examples of formations which you can use 4-4-2, 4-5-1, 3-5-2.

  • Penalty Kick Specialist – In  1 vs 1 situations with the keeper the vote is slightly towards the Penalty Kick taker. So, select the player who can score in 1 on 1 situation to avoid missing the penalty. Prefer attackers as penalty kick taker.

  • Left Corner Kick taker –   left corner kick taker is The player who will put a cross from the Left Corner. Accuracy is important while taking a corner kick, swinging the ball towards the goal post can be dangerous for the opposition and can concede.

  • Attacking – Playing with this style can help you score a lot of goals, as all your players are moving forward up the field. The defense also starts moving forward, but it is always a risk if the opponent gets a chance to attack.
  • Moderate – Maintaining the attack and defense is great for your team as the players will also get time to recover from the attack. I personally recommend this playing style as there is less chance of conceding a goal. Try different modes and choose the best.
  • Defensive – Setting your team’s playing style on defensive and using it properly can help you concede almost no goal. In this game of play all your players have a defensive role and denies going high up the field. So try all the three methods and select the best mode for your team
