Mode: Attacking

Style: Possession

On the fifth position is a formation with three center-backs and where the wing-backs are left and right midfielders.

FIFA 22's 3-5-2 formation is highly suitable when a player wants to dominate on the ball, keep possession and not concede cheap goals. One of the 3 CBs acts like a sweeper, and the RM and LM provide vital width to stretch the field. The two STs work better if a target man gets crosses or holds the ball for the other, who makes the behind runs.


4) 4-2-3-1 Wide

Mode: Attacking/Defending

Style: Possession

The standard formation in real-world football, 4-2-3-1 wide, is a stable choice in FIFA 22 Career Mode. It's a more traditional take on 4-2-3-1 narrow and adds defensive stability. The two extra attacking mids turn into LM and RM and adds width to the lineup. The lone forward can be a target man or a fast runner as well.


3) 4-3-3 Flat

Mode: Attacking/Defending

Style: Possession

The 4-3-3 flat is a conservative but effective formation that has a flat mid and defensive line. Upfront, there are three attacking options. One can go with two wingers and a target man or supplement the forward with two inside forward-type options.


2) 4-3-3 attack

Mode: Attacking

Style: Direct

The 4-3-3 attack is an aggressive version of the more traditional 4-3-3, which employs a defensive midfielder. However, in a 4-3-3 attack, the defensive midfielder changes to an attacking midfielder supported by two pivots. Upfront, the three attacking options follow the same tactics as all 4-3-3 formations.


1) 4-1-2-1-2 Wide

Mode: Attacking/Defending

Style: Counter/Direct

A modification of the original 4-4-2, 4-1-2-1-2 is a highly versatile formation in FIFA 22 Career Mode. The midfield forms a wide diamond where the game is built. The strategy is to give the defensive mid a defensive duty and the attacking mid a free roam. The two forward options work great with a target man and a pacier alternative.
