Suitable for the games you’re trying to win and you need to concede no or less goals at the same time.
3-1-4-2 is a variation of 3-5-2 formation where a defender (preferably a sweeper) helps midfielders on attack and defence. Like in 3-5-2, this formation is heavily reliant on the wing-backs providing width for the team. The wing players are more withdrawn in favour of one of the central midfielders being pushed further upfield into the playmaker position.
