FIFA 21 – 4312 Best and Meta Custom Tactics
Offensive Style :
- 4312 is not a formation where you will be able to hold the ball . The formation is narrow and does not have the width to ball work the ball around. Hence Fast Build Up works pretty good with this formation
- Width is 7 bars since the formation is very narrow.
- Players in the Box is 7 bars too since we want the CMs to run into the box as well
- Corners and Free kicks are okay with 2 bars each
Defensive Style :
- Since this formation is about pressure and attack, using Pressure On Heavy Touch works really well
- Width is 4 bars because we it is easier to play pressure football with a low defensive width.
- Depth is okay with 5 . We do not want to over commit
Player Instructions :
- Back 4 on Stay Back While Attacking
- Middle CM on Stay Back While Attacking and Cover Center
- Left and Right CM on Balanced and Cover Center
- CAM on Stay Forward and Get Into the Box for Cross
- Strikers on Stay Central
There you go. This formation really helped me win a lot of matches. Player will make runs forward and you just need to spot them. You can also play 1-2 passes between you strikers. The key to this formation is to have players with decent shooting on the left and right CMs. They will make those run into the box and you need them to score . If played properly this formation could get you to elite in WL . Enjoy the game .
