3-4-3

FIFA 16 Formation 3-4-3

3-4-3 – 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.
