My team when i play this formation






Although i think 4-4-2 is a better option against 3-4-1-2

& the best formation imo is 3-4-1-2

OHH and that formation 4-2-3-1 leaks alot of goals even with that defence i have but also you can score alot with this formation just depends on how stronbg the team is your up against GOOD LUCK WITH THIS FORMATION.

Re: I dont know how to use a 4-2-3-1 formation

how do i use the 4-2-3-1 formation any experts can teach me???:confused:

I want to know what kind of players to play in which postition and what other instuctions to give my team/i going to play a team who play the 3-5-2 formation.pls help.thanks.

This is my formation and I have reasonably good results with it...






Mentality = Normal

Passing = Short

Tempo = Fast

Passing Style = Mixed

I would also play with tight marking and counter attack and playmaker activated. My Werder Bremen team play this way and it has worked an absolute charm with me. Also ensure your wide men are making runs forward and get the higher rated DM your playmaker. Wingers are also suitable if you dont have any RM/AM or LM/AM.

I also like to switch it around a little bit after 75 minutes of the game. Change the formation to 4-1-3-2 and alter the passing style to through the middle and change passing style to direct. I find it gets me a late goal on quite a number of games.






Good luck. Hope one of the tactics shown on this thread help you out (unless its against one of my teams, in which case I hope you lose haha)

I have had huge success with this formation in a euro championship with fc porto. I put Hulk (fwd) in the AM position and had him running to the left of the striker in my case Negredo. Hulk got top scorer this season and I got to the cup final and came runner-up in the league according to goal difference. so yes it does concede goals but also scores many.

Passing: short

Tempo: fast

Everything else set to normal

You can use target man on the CF the only difference this has is that your CF will have alot of assists and your wingers and AM's will score the goals

Good against 4-4-2, 3-5-2

bad against 4-3-3, 4-4-2 (diamond)
