How to play

Defense: Pretty much the most compact defensive setup in FC 24. Don't break your shape as you should first defend with your midfield and then your defensive line.

How to play

Defense: Main focus on defense is also your wingers come back as supportive defenders. Use the midfield and also striker line (if they are also coming back) to defend first before risking going out with your defenders.

Offense: Try to build up your game from the wings and get the ball step by step towards the center. Your need to feed your wingers' runs and use the power of through balls to get yourself free.

41212(2) Formation

41212(2)

41212(2) is once more back, it is very versatile and quite fun to play!

Defense: Defending is a bit tricky, sice wingbacks are the only players who are designated to cover sides. Try to pull CM's into their direction while defending to fortify wings.

Offense: You have way too many passing opportunities, using them rapidly will create tons of opportunities for you. Consistenly look for side passes.

4141 Formation

4141

The 4141 formation never wasn't really a popular choice in the last couple of year, but this year it offers a nice balance between the defense and attack. In this formation guide we explain the tactic settings and how to play it ingame.

How to play

Defense: Stable defense with CDM, two CMs in the center. You can use your wingers and also CMs to help defending on the wing, if required.

Offense: Quick passing conbinations in the center between wingers, CMs and ST to get through the midfield. The LM will cut inside and play like a 2nd striker with these instructions.
