Formation Base: 4-5-1
Available in: Career Mode / Kick-off / Tournaments
Your midfielders are required to work hard to support more your defence.
This formation is originally a defensive formation, however, if the two midfield wingers play a more attacking role, it can be likened to 4–3–3. The formation can be used to tie up or preserve a lead, as the packing of the centre midfield makes it difficult for the opposition to build up play.
Suggested Counter Formations: 5-3-2
