FIFA 22 – 5212 Best Custom Tactics to Win every match | FUT Meta Formation
Five at the back sound pretty defensive doesn’t it? The FIFA community frowns upon users who play 5 at the back. If you are then probably “you cannot defend” is the tagline that comes with it. Well, let me tell you one thing. It is a formation in the game. FIFA is allowing and we are here to use it. Trust me this formation is not at all defensive. It is one of the most attacking formations in the game at the moment. The overlapping runs from the wingbacks will literally get you tons of goals.
What Tactics to use with the 5-2-1-2?
The 5-2-1-2 is pretty similar to the 4-1-2-1-2 formation. It is just that instead of the CDM we have an extra CB in the game. This is how you need to set up your tactics for the 5-2-1-2.
- Defensive Style should be Press After Possession Loss. Defenders this year go nuts under pressure. They cannot clear properly and they make a lot of mistakes. Therefore we need to keep the pressure up all the time to force the mistakes of the defenders.
- The width will work fine at 50 and the Depth is good at 58
- The Offensive Style should be Fast Build Up. We need players to quickly move up the pitch
- Chance Creation should be Direct Passing. This ensures that the players will run into space whenever they find any.
- The width is fine at 40.
- Players in Box should be 7 bars. As I said we need to put pressure on the opponent.
- Corners and Free Kicks should be 2 bars each
Which Player Instructions to use?
Player Instructions are the most important when it comes to this formation.
- All 3 CBs should be on Stay Back While Attacking
- Wing Backs should be on Join Attack and Overlap
- More Offensive CM should be on Get Forward and Get Into the Box for Cross and Cover Center while more Defensive CM should be on Stay Back while Attacking and Cover Center
- CAM should be on Stay Forward only
- RS and LS should be on Stay Forward only
Tips and In-game Strategy :
The Wing backs will be your key. Look out for those overlapping runs and launch a Lobbed Through Ball right at them. They will have enough space to literally run into the box and do a cutback pass. Make sure you have players with good speed as the wing-backs. They will run out of stamina by the 65th minute so make sure you have good enough wingbacks to substitute them with. Try to play the ball more in space than in congested areas. Wait for the CM to make that forward run into the box and lob the ball to him. Lobbed passing is too overpowered this year. make full use of it in this formation.
