Which EA FC 24 formation is best for FC Barcelona?


With the arrival of players like Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo, FC Barcelona has plenty of options in all areas of the pitch. Their offensive lineup is impressive, and their midfield is versatile as well. This makes the 4231 formation the most suitable for their roster in EA FC 24.

Robert Lewandowski will play as the central striker, with Raphinha and Ferran Torres acting as the wide attacking midfielders and Joao Felix playing as the central attacking midfielder. Dutch superstar Frenkie De Jong and Spanish wonderkid Pedri will play as the two holding midfielders.

In defense, Alejandro Balde, Jules Kounde, Ronald Araujo and Joao Cancelo will form the backline. All these players have the pace, stats and PlayStyles required to be excellent in the current meta of EA FC 24.

What are the best instructions for this formation in EA FC 24?


The 4231 setup is one of the most balanced formations in the game, and has been a popular choice among gamers for almost a decade. Not only is it excellent for the tiki-taka style of play deployed by FC Barcelona, it is also solid defensively.

The striker should be instructed to stay forward, while all three attacking midfielders should be instructed to come back on defense and to get into the box for crosses. Both defensive midfielders should be told to 'cover centre' and to stay back while attacking. These two players will be crucial in helping the backline during defensive scenarios, while also creating offensive plays. Pedri and De Jong are perfect for this role.

Both fullbacks should also be instructed to stay back while attacking. While Cancelo and Balde certainly possess the stats and abilities to contribute in attack, being defensively solid is more important in EA FC 24. Kounde and Araujo are also exceptional on the virtual pitch, making the FC Barcelona side overpowered in all aspects.
