Not only does it look like teams will behave as they do in real life, but you will also receive feedback in the game on what they are doing.

This will give you the chance to adjust your own game plans and alter your tactics, bringing a new level of game management into FIFA 22.

Taking a closer look at what EA has said about the new feature, it looks as though the data will continue to evolve throughout the season.

Changing managers could provide the biggest difference in playing style for football teams, so that may be where we see the biggest alterations.
