FIFA 21 – Best and Meta Custom Tactics 4-4-2 | Ultimate Team Formation Guide

The 4-4-2 is a very attacking formation by default. Hence there is no point playing it defensively when you already have a second defensive variant of this formation with 2 CDMs .

Offensive Tactics :

  • Balanced seems to work best for this formation. We need the players to make runs when necessary and also come short accordingly. Hence balanced is your best choice
  • The width is good at 5 bars. We don’t want the formation to be too wide then the gap between your strikers will increase a lot and you would not be able to make those on touch pass and move plays.
  • Players In Box is best at 6 bars since we want our CMs to also move in and support the strikers at times when necessary.
  • Corners and Free Kicks are fine with 2 bars

Defensive Tactics :

  • Since 4-4-2 is a very attacking formation we need to put pressure on the opponent’s defense. Press After Possession Loss is best for this formation.
  • Width is always best at 5 bars. Too low would expose you on the wings and too high will create gaps through the middle.
  • Depth is at 5 bars since we need to play a higher line to put pressure on the opponent.

Player Instructions :

  • Back 4 should be at Stay Back While Attacking.
  • More defensive CM should be at Stay Back While Attacking while more offensive CM should be at Balanced instructions.
  • Both LM and RM should only have Get Into Box For Cross
  • Both Strikers should have to Get in Behind only.

Hopefully, this formation will help you get a lot of goals. Since it is a very attacking formation I would recommend that you use this only when you are down by one goal. Or you can use this to get a goal and then change once you take the lead. Enjoy the game
