Best FIFA Formations – One striker Edition
We all have played Fifa from a young age and after grinding the game for some time, we all want to try new formations. Whether it is attacking, balanced or defensive mindset, in the end, we need at least one single formation which we can trust to guarantee us a win. It could involve one or many strikers at times along with various changes in midfield.
Single striker based formations :
Let’s look at the formations which use a single striker. These formations are generally based on a defensive mindset involving CDM at least one of them and then wide midfielders to target their strikers. It can not give you high scoring games. But, you will concede less and there are some attacking exceptions as well.
4-2-3-1 Wide and narrow :
The formation has always worked on the simulator or on the pitch. The most used one in Fifa 19 which is about headers, crosses, and physicality. Here you have two formations.
the wider one involves 2 wide midfielders who at times assist LB and RB in attack and Defense. CAM to assist the striker.
Narrow one, involving 3 attacking midfielders. But, this one requires too much creativity from the player, himself as interceptions will be the key factor due to physicality that Fifa 19 gives.
Both formations, in the end, have 2 CDM to hold the game and in FIFA 19 you better play CB as full-backs to stop headers. one of the best Fifa formations ever.
The formation which not many Fifa pros prefer nowadays still can do wonders if you have that great short passing mastery. The formation uses 3 central midfielders who should be amazing in all-around ability to attack and tackling sometimes. In attack, you have narrow left and right forwards who can shoot with one single pass and can give the same final pass. It is not that complicated strategy so if you want to keep it simple, go with this.
The formation where you have similarity with 4-2-3-1 as you have 2 wide midfielders and the difference here is that you have center mids who stay up and are less accurate defensively. So, it is all up to your center backs to stop the attack from the middle of the pitch. In attack here you have a central forward who aids the striker and can give a final pass. It is a very attacking formation.
4-5-1 Flat and attacking
The flat one is same with 3 central midfielders and two wide midfielders
Attacking one however has a deep-lying center midfielder and 2 attacking midfielders, with same wide midfielders and one striker. It is also one of the best-attacking strategies ever.
This one has a deep-lying holding midfielder, 2 central midfielders, and 2 wide midfielders. It is not that attacking. Perhaps, we should call it a balanced one.
3 Center-backs to stop headers. 2 wing-backs to aid 2 wingers in attack with supporting role from 2 central midfielders .one of the best in Fifa 19.
Two holding midfielders, 2 wide midfielders, and one center forward to aid the striker. 3 Center-backs can stop headers. But, you have to go with an attacking mindset to get the results for sure.
Another strategy with 2 narrow forwards and a central striker. 2 center mids and 2 wide midfielders and finally 3 Centre back to deal with headers. It is a very offensive strategy.
Next time, we will see the strategies which use more than one striker and how you should use both!
