If you want to evolve your gameplay in FIFA, it’s essential to always be up to date with the game’s meta. That’s why today you’re going to learn more about the best formations in FUT in FIFA 23.
It is worth remembering that you can use the formation that you like the most. However, in Fifa, there are some standards, both of plays and of structure in the team. And knowing these tricks makes it possible for you to reach the best prizes and placements.
Let’s go there then?
FIFA 23 Meta Formation: 4-4-2
Starting the list of the best Fifa 23 formations, the default of most teams at the start of the game. That’s because you can place players in a balanced way on the field, in addition to having several possibilities to assemble your squad.
The best part of this formation is precisely the way in which the players are arranged within the match. That’s because you can fill all areas of the field with at least 2 players.
In this way, from the defense, it is possible to create plays with more options for passing exchanges or with more offensive runs. Using the 442 you realize that you can easily vary tactics throughout the game, that is, if you need to play faster or slower, climb up the sides, or ask your attackers to give you more options, it adjusts easily.
And remembering that this is a formation that allows better control from the sides as well, different from the formation I’ll talk about next.
FIFA 23 Meta Formation: 4-2-2-2
The ‘sister’ of 442 has been making waves in Fifa 23. This is one of the favorites of pro players and you will understand why.
The 4-2-2-2 means that your team is also present in various parts of the field, and especially in the middle. This makes your players much more present for tables and shorter, faster plays.
In this way, the game ends up being much more dynamic in the central attack and in the lateral parts you can instruct your players to support the two main attackers. In addition, the formation allows you to be able to apply pressure much more easily, and if you are losing, it is much easier to reach the necessary goals.
FIFA 23 Meta Formation: 4-2-3-1
This has perhaps been the tactic favored by many players for several editions of the game. And believe me: in FIFA 23 it still earns a lot!
In the 4-2-3-1 you get something that is very important in Ultimate Team, which is defensive and offensive consistency. The reason for this is that there are 3 home midfielders and 2 midfielders that cover the center of the defense (remember to put the instruction for this).
With these players, the attack ends up being more productive because they have pieces that are complementary in the construction of the move. Calm down, I’ll explain: the 3 attacking midfielders end up creating offensive spaces more frequently, as they can advance to the wings, middle and enter the area for crosses. And the attacker, does the job of pulling the marking and table easily for the other players.
You will notice that in this formation the use of throws is very frequent. So try to place players who can keep up with these quick plays.
As for the midfielders, think about making one more offensive and the other more defensive, as this will make your team always have 5 players for attack and 5 for defense throughout the game.
FIFA 23 Meta Formation: 4-3-2-1
Both this and the next formation are the most used by high-level players in Fifa 23. However, they need a little more attention when compared to the ones mentioned above.
The main detail of the 4-3-2-1 is the triple line in midfield and attack. And precisely because of this, these players have to be balanced and complementary in their positions.
For the midfielders it is interesting that you have at least 1 or 2 players with more defensive notion and greater marking. Since one of them has to, necessarily, stay in defense during the attack, as their coverage will be fundamental if there is a quick response from their opponent.
A cool tip is when the instructions put it so that one of the lateral attackers can return to defend, as this will make you defend in a line of 4 players in the midfield and attack with a line of 3.
And remembering that the forwards are not spikes. That way they will be much closer in attack.
FIFA 23 Meta Formation: 3-4-2-1
Finishing the Top 5 of the best formations in Fifa 23 and not least (or buggy), the 3-4-2-1 is the most offensive formation highlighted among those mentioned.
The reason for this is that when you get the ball with any of the midfield players forward, you will have around 5 to 6 options to pull the ball, touch the ball and complete your play.
Because there is a lot of crowding on the sides and in the attack, you can make the most buggy move in FIFA 23, which is basically going to the bottom line and crossing or touching the ball to the middle of the area. By doing this, with all the pieces in the attack I mentioned, you have a much greater chance of making the ball reach the players and the goal, overwhelming the opponent’s defense.
But rest assured, you can instruct your players to come back to defend and support your three defenders. That is, while you press consistently, the defense is not left out.
