|CM | The 2 CM’s are key but the RW and LW’s have a huge impact on the success of this particular set-up.|
Fast build-up play with a particular focus on attacking down the wide areas. This formation is used by more offensive-minded teams.
How to Use this Formation
The 343 is by far the most balanced formation with 3 defenders. The LW and RW are great at swinging in crosses and running down the wing. They are heavily supported by the midfield that spreads out. This formation has a lot of triangles for easy, quick and effective passing. As this formation is even wider than the 3421, your CM’s may become slightly isolated in the middle of the pitch when driving forward with possession. Using this formation, your midfielders are expected to split their time between attacking and defending. Having only 3 defenders means that if the opposing team breaks through the midfield, they will have a greater chance to score than with a more conventional defensive configuration, such as 451 or 442. However, your 3 forwards allow for a greater concentration on the attack.
How to Counter this Formation
Your team can be stretched easily and ultimately burn out quickly. To address that problem, playing 5 in the back will provide less stress for your team and you can easily take control of the game.
