Analyzing 3-4-1-2 Formation in FIFA 17

3-4-1-2 Formation


3-4-1-2 Description:
The first of the FIFA 17 Formations is the 3-4-1-2. This is particularly attacking, with 5 midfielders and 2 ST’s you’re sure to create plenty of chances going forward but could suffer defensively. It’s wise to invest in a decent CAM as this player will be the main source of supply for your ST partnership. It’s also important that he has decent shooting stats as when your ST’s create space (by making runs) this will create opportunities for him to toggle forward, get a shot off and hopefully test the keeper. With this formation your ST’s should get good service, but don’t forget this extra player (CAM) will leave you exposed at the back.

We’ve noticed many FUTers frequently making use of the wings in order to get crosses in, which can be a problem for any formation with 3 at the back as the 3 CB’s will be more compact than those using LB’s and RB’s. However, there are a few ways this can be covered… By making sure your LM and RM have at least medium defensive work rates they will fulfill their defensive responsibilities by helping the 2 wider CB’s stop attacks up the flanks. Another way in which this potential issue can be diluted is to make sure your CB’s are fairly quick (especially the 2 wider CB’s). This is so they can get out wide to the opponents as quickly as possible in order to close them down, pressure them in to making mistakes and ultimately make them lose possession or fail to deliver a dangerous cross.

3-4-1-2 Advantages
Creates lots of chances going forward
Great for leagues/nations with plenty of good midfielders
Great for leagues/nations without decent/affordable LB’s and RB’s
Works well on the counter attack (especially if the 2 ST’s can hold up the ball well)

3-4-1-2 Disadvantages
Susceptible to counter attacks (particularly from wide positions)
No CDM’s and only 3 CB’s can invite pressure
LM and RM must get forward to support attacks AND get back due to no LB’s or RB’s (think about work rates)
Usually difficult/expensive to find a combination of 3 quick CB’s in a particular league/nation (remember hybrid squads are always an option)

Final Notes: As there are no CDM’s to cover the 3 CB’s, we recommend purchasing CM’s with high defensive work rates so they can fill the gap between the defence and midfield when necessary.
