3-4-1-2

FIFA 18 Formation

Mode: Attacking (Moderate)

3-4-1-2 is a variation of 3-5-2 formation where the wing players are more withdrawn in favour of one of the central midfielders being pushed further upfield into the playmaker position, the "number 10". This formation is suitable for the games you are trying to win by keeping the ball in the middle and creating oppurtunies by your midefielders.

3-4-2-1

FIFA 18 Formation

Mode: Attacking

A variation of 3-4-1-2 formation but more attacking. 3-4-2-1 has more attackers (3 forwards – LF, CF/ST and RF) and is designed for the games where you are not only trying to win the game but also trying to score more than one goal.

3-4-3

FIFA 18 Formation

Mode: Attacking

Using this formation, your midfielders are expected to split their time between attacking and defending. Having only 3 defenders means that if the opposing team breaks through the midfield, they will have a greater chance to score than with a more conventional defensive configuration, such as 4–5–1 or 4–4–2. However, your 3 forwards allow for a greater concentration on attack. This formation is used by more offensive-minded teams.

3-5-2

FIFA 18 Formation 3-5-2

Mode: Attacking (Possessioning)

The 3-5-2 formation has 3 central defenders (possibly with one acting as a sweeper). This system is heavily reliant on the wing-backs providing width for the team. The two wide full-backs act as wing-backs. It is their job to work their flank along the full length of the pitch, supporting both the defence and the attack.


4-1-2-1-2

FIFA 18 Formation

Mode: Attacking / Defending

This formation has 4 defenders, 4 midfielders and 2 forwards. 4 midfielders in 4-1-2-1-2 formation are CDM, CAM, RM and LM. The CDM will help the defenders on defending while CAM can join strikers to participate in attacks.

FIFA 18 Formation

Mode: Attacking / Defending

Also known as 4-1-2-1-2 Narrow, it is a variation of 4-1-2-1-2 formation, but in this formation there is no wingers in the midfield, which means the flank midfielders could be central midfielders (CM) as their roles are more concentrated in the center of the field and they stay closer to each other in compare to 4-1-2-1-2 formation.

4-1-4-1

FIFA 18 Formation

FIFA 18 Formation

Mode: Attacking / Defensive

4-2-3-1 (2)

FIFA 18 Formation 4-2-3-1-2

Mode: Defensive / Attacking (Lone Striker)

Mode: Defensive / Attacking
