Quite equivalent for the FIFA 4-5-1 Flat, the 4-1-4-1 adds that tiny bit more defensive protection. With that in mind, you will want one particular of one's central midfielders and possibly both of one's wide men to acquire forward as considerably as you can. To accomplish this in your instructions tab, visit attacking assistance, and choose stay/to get ahead. As soon as once more, you are going to have to have runners from midfield, and maybe Bayern has the most significant balance with Javi Martinez holding, Arturo Vidal or Thiago going box-to-box and James Rodriguez or perhaps Thomas Muller surging from deep to join up with the striker.

Strengths: Key strengths for this formation is the defensive structure of the composition. Think of the two banks of four players as horizontal lines (which would be hard to break down anyway) with an extra layer of protection moving across the pitch back on forth between. Possession play has lots of options, both short and spreading the play, particularly in your half of the field.
Weaknesses: A weakness for this formation is the lone striker (hence why we chose this man as the key man). As with a couple of previously mentioned one upfront formations, it's clear that this player will become isolated and that this is easily the weakest area of the pitch.
Key player/position: The striker, as we mentioned above, is the key man. A physical player has excellent speed as well as the strength will need to be bought/used if you're using this formation.
Most suited style of play: Slow, methodical possession is needed to work the ball up to the pitch to ensure that when you do get the ball to your striker, he won't be all alone up there at the top of the pitch
