FIFA 20 Formations Guide for 3-1-4-2

FUT 20 Date: Jul/13/19 04:16:15 Views: 4049

FIFA 20 Formations 3-1-4-2 is a variation of 3-5-2 formation where a defender (preferably a sweeper) helps midfielders on attack and defense. Like in 3-5-2, this formation is heavily reliant on the wing-backs providing width for the team. The wing players are more withdrawn in favor of one of the central midfielders being pushed further upfield into the playmaker position.

FIFA Expert’s recommended work rates:

 

Right C Back – Medium attacking / high defensive
Left C Back – Medium attacking / high defensive
CB – Low attacking / high defensive
CDM – Low attacking / high defensive
Right CM – Medium Attacking / Medium Defensive
Left CM – Medium Attacking / Medium Defensive
Right Mid – High Attacking / Medium Defensive
Left Mid – High Attacking / Medium Defensive
Right Striker – High Attacking / Low Defensive
Left Striker - High Attacking / Low Defensive

Strengths: Very similar to the formation above but with more focus on wide play. Works really well with two high work rate wide midfield men so they can overlap past the LF and RF. In terms of attack it is a very attacking formation and can become slightly unbalanced, especially if you lose the ball with many players pushed forward. If you are a player who enjoys to play with plenty of width and likes to cross the ball lots then this formation definitely would suit you. Gives the option of a big, powerful striker to get on the end of all those crosses coming in from wide areas.

Weaknesses: A big problem with this one is it is very prone to counter attacks especially if you have chosen wingers with high attacking work rates. If you have gone the opposite way and have wingers with low attacking but higher defensive work rates then this does give you slightly more protection. As mentioned in the 3-4-1-2 you need to have 3 quick CB’s and be comfortable in dealing with crosses if you are to choose this formation as wide areas can be left exposed. Key player/position: See the previous formation for an explanation on this selection. The 2 CM’s are crucial to this formations success.Most suited style of play: Quick, short, sharp passing in terms of build-up play with an attacking focus in particular.
