DESCRIPTION

One of the most popular FUT formations. This formation in diamond shape has the CAM as key element.

STRONG AND WEAK POINTS

A balanced formation that offers defensive security in midfield.
Good defensively since sometimes CDM plays like a CB.
Suitable for those who like to play through the middle.
Vulnerable to teams using formations with a packed central midfield.
Too narrow.

MOST SUITED PLAY STYLES

Balanced, slow, possession play suits this formation best.

HOW TO USE THIS FORMATION

This is a very popular formation in FIFA. The central midfield arrangement offers a diamond shape behind the 2 ST’s. The balance comes from the fact that there is a CDM in front of the 2 CB’s to help out defensively and a CAM behind the 2 ST’s to help create attacking opportunities. This is very balanced and highlights a team that has strong pieces in every position. This formation also offers width with a LM and a RM.

HOW TO COUNTER THIS FORMATION

This formation is even more effective than the 4-1-2-1-2 (2) because the LM and RM can also cover your players on the wing. As a consequence, this position can be exploited tremendously. Using a formation with wingbacks or clogging the midfield will give you more control of the game.

Formations you should use to beat this one (by descending order):
451, 3421, 352, 4411.

Key Player
CAM | Most of your play will hinge on the CAM and his ability to play good, sharp passes. The opposition will see him as the danger man in this set-up too so you can use him as a foil really well.
