It is not enough to have the best squad to win in FIFA 19. If you want to always be victorious, you must also think about the formation and tactics appropriate to your team. When defining these strategies, you will find your ideal style of play and that of your team. The best football coaches must know the tactical options at their disposal. In FIFA 19, these options are divided between defense and attack. In this article, you will discover how to build your attack and defense strategies according to the best formations in the game.

4-2-3-1 (Closed) - Possession of Ball

This formation is one of the most balanced in FIFA 19. For this reason, depending on the tactic you use, it can serve many different playing styles. It is ideal for those who like to have possession of the ball and, as a consequence, for those who want to control the midfield. Control of the game begins with the first two middle men. In terms of defense, it is excellent. The two steering wheels provide security and also allow for a paced and unhurried ball exit. If you want to open the game, you can play with both sides, who will approach to receive the ball. The last three men in the middle are even more important. Offensive midfielders will approach the defensive midfielders to facilitate possession. There are no long balls here. The more you pass the round from standing to standing, the more your players will try to stay close to each other. It is the safest way to get the ball into the opponent's area to attempt the goal. In the instructions of each player, it is advisable to direct the attacking midfielders to return to defend. Check out the characteristics of the ball possession: Defense:
  • Defensive style: pressure on the opponent's error.
  • Extension: five bars.
  • Depth: seven bars.
  • Offensive style: possession of the ball.
  • Extension: five bars.
  • Players in the area: a bar.
  • Corners: two bars.
  • Fouls: two bars.
Other formations to play in Posse de Bola:
  • 4-5-1
  • 4-2-2-2
  • 4-3-3

4-5-1 (Offensive) - Constant Pressure

It may not seem like it, but the 4-5-1 attacking scheme is one of the safest for those who want to put pressure on their opponents. First because the midfield is populated, but not necessarily with defensive players. You have a central sock and two open socks, as well as two offensive socks. To press on the opponent's defense without taking any risks, pay attention to this combination. The defensive style in tactics must be Constant Pressure. The offensive style should be Quick Arming. The Game Plan, in turn, needs to be Defensive. With these combinations, your team will always press ahead, however, it will be ready to defend itself should it suffer a counterattack. Unlike 3-5-2, which is more fragile defensively, this scheme guarantees a greater defensive balance. It is very efficient for those who want to attack with intensity and constancy, but do not want to open many spaces in defense. In the instructions of each player, the attacking socks and socks should go back to help. Check out the Constant Pressure characteristics: Defense:
  • Defensive style: constant pressure.
  • Extension: five bars
  • Depth: eight bars.
  • Offensive style: quick frame.
  • Extension: six bars.
  • Players in the area: eight bars.
  • Corners: three bars.
  • Fouls: three bars.

  • 4-3-3 False 9

4-1-4-1 - Counter attack

Whoever likes to play waiting for the opponent on their own field always opts for the counterattack. The opponent will always have more possession of the ball, but this does not always translate into goal chances. Your tactic, therefore, should ensure that your team is retreated, but ready to go on the attack quickly and efficiently. The 4-1-4-1 formation is one of those that best fits this type of tactic. After all, you have a steering wheel and two central socks to close the center of the midfield. The right and left socks, along with the sides, fill the sides of the field, ensuring defensive solidity. When you steal the ball, all your players will launch the attack at the same time. To ensure efficiency, there is a secret. Put your Game Plan as Ultra Defensive. Defensive Style in tactics must be Constant Pressure. The Offensive, in turn, needs to be as Quick Set-up. This will make the counterattack more organized. In each player's instructions, all middle players must be ordered to assist in defense. Check out the characteristics of the Counterattack: Defense:
  • Defensive style: constant pressure.
  • Extension: four bars.
  • Depth: one bar.
  • Offensive style: quick frame.
  • Extension: nine bars.
  • Players in the area: six bars.
  • Corners: a bar.
  • Fouls: a bar.
Other formations to play in Counterattack:
  • 5-4-1
  • 4-3-2-1
  • 4-3-3 Conservative

5-3-2 - Throws

Who likes to play with the famous long balls needs a formation with a solid defensive sector. The three defenders and the two wings of this scheme will ensure your safety. Wards are still good options for carrying the ball into the middle of the field and launching into attack. The three socks must be balanced, with good breath and with a good pass. The two attackers are the legitimate center forward: tall and strong. This is a formation that, with the right tactic, can yield you great head goals in corners and fouls. In addition, it allows men to face each other face to face with the opposing goalkeeper. Be careful, however, with your opponent's counterattacks. The sides are weakened if you lose the ball in front. This will leave only defenders as a defense option. Check out the features of the Launch: Defense:
  • Defensive style: balanced.
  • Extension: seven bars.
  • Depth: six bars.
  • Offensive style: releases.
  • Extension: nine bars.
  • Players in the area: eight bars.
  • Corners: four bars.
  • Fouls: four bars.
