DESCRIPTION

The 424 formation attempts to combine a strong attack with a strong defence.

STRONG AND WEAK POINTS

Very attacking formation.
Unbalanced formation.
The two CM’s are too isolated.

MOST SUITED PLAY STYLES

Fast direct play with a focus on playing and attacking in wide-areas suits this formation best. Suitable for the games where you need to win by scoring more goals.

HOW TO USE THIS FORMATION

This is the probably the most unbalanced formation in FUT. Its main strength lies in the huge attacking threat that this can pose, whilst still having a flat back four to keep you protected at the back. However, there is lack of players in the midfield. If the two CM’s aren’t players of the very highest quality as well as the elite footballing athletes, then you are most likely fighting a losing battle, right from the off. They have to be athletic to get around the pitch and have to sit in the middle area of the field.

HOW TO COUNTER THIS FORMATION

Placing many players in the midfield is the key to counter this formation.

Formations you should use to beat this one (by descending order):
4231, 433, 532, 442.

Key Player
CM | There is no doubt that the 2 CM’s are the key to this formation working for you. Ideal players would be like Kante. If you don’t have players of this quality, then don’t use it.
