3-1-4-2 Formation

Mode: Attacking / Midfield (Moderate)
Formation Base: 3-5-2
Available in: FUT / Career Mode / Kick-off / Tournaments

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 3-5-2 formation variation in which a defender (preferably a sweeper) assists midfielders on attack and defense. This formation, like the 3-5-2, is heavily reliant on the wing-backs to provide width for the team. The wingers are more withdrawn, with one of the central midfielders pushed further upfield into the playmaker role.
