FIFA 21 Meta Formations - FIFA 21 4231 Best Custom Tactics & Instructions



        Defense style: balanced

        Width: 5

        Depth: 5


        Offense style: fast build up

        Width: 7

        Players in box: 5

        Corners: 3

        Free kicks: 2


First and foremost, the defensive style you can go with the Balanced, the thing is about defensive style or offensive style, it's really good to vary and to change with different formations. Because certain things suit certain formations. A lot of people like to play on the press, especially Press On Possession Loss, Pressure On Heavy Touch. But these two don't really work well in the FIFA 21 4231 formations, people found it not to be as much effective as the Balanced, but if you are going to be playing on the press, choosing Press On Possession Loss might be a better choice. However, comparing to Balanced, Press On Possession Loss does leave you concealing a couple of chances, as all press do. Make it difficult for you to defend and force you to give up chances, but it could work in the 4231 formations, it's more of a defensive formation, you could say. So in comparison, playing on the Balanced is the best way to go, it allows you to have that compact nature.

Last but not the least, on defensive style, you could go for the fast build up, the reason why it is recommended to play on fast build up is that when people experimented with possession, it feels a little bit slow, but if you are someone that likes to hold on to a lot of possession and trying to build up your attacks slowly, you can also choose possession. but most people like to go for the Fast Build Up because it leaves you a little bit more open with counter-attacks. But you got to have that attacking intent in the game and Fast Build Up just meant that everybody on your team can drift around and create a lot of chances. So it works effectively very well.
