FIFA 21: 4-2-3-1 The Most Effective Formation

If you have doubts about which formation to use during your FIFA 21 matches, we want to introduce you to one of the formations that are giving the most success to pro players since it has many more advantages than disadvantages, and we will tell you why.

This 4-2-3-1 formation is working well offering a good combination of FIFA 21 players in attack as well as in defense. It also offers a well-populated midfield.

First, we are with a formation of four fixed defenders, but then both the midfield players and the forwards can serve us for various tasks that we can execute in real-time.

Second, we initially have four attacking players such as a center forward who will always be in the rival area, then two wingers and a playmaker.

But it is that for certain moments some of the midfielders that we have can be added to the attack, mainly one of them so as not to leave the center of the field protected for a counterattack.

But it is also valid for defensive purposes because we will practically be able to take the midfielders to help the defenders and leave only one benchmark that is the striker in the upper central part of the field for any possible counterattack at full speed.

What we want to tell you with this is that we are talking about a tactic that does not work whether we are ahead or behind the scoreboard. If we are ahead of the scoreboard, it is a good idea that we only leave the ram up there, populate the center of the field of players and that they are as close as possible to the defense.

If we are below the scoreboard, we can always add different midfielders to the attack, and also take advantage of both ends.

It is also ideal for counterattacks since we could populate the center of the field with many players, who are close to the defense so as not to leave gaps, and then try to send the ball with long passes towards either end or even to the ram.

 As you can see, it is one of the most efficient and versatile tactics that we can use in our FIFA 21 games, because it adapts to a multitude of types of games, whether when we are winning or when we are losing.
