4-2-3-1 Counter attack

The 4-2-3-1 is a very balanced formation that distributes its players very well on the pitch. It is the ideal formation for those who like to play on the counterattack. With two defensive midfielders, you will be able to withstand the pressure of the opponent and manage to attack quickly with the three offensive midfielders. In midfield, you can play with two center midfielders or change to a center midfielder and a midfielder to help more in defense. At the front, you can also change the offensive midfielder to the second striker if you need to attack more. The tactic of playing on the counter is to let your opponent have more possession of the ball and attack without putting too much pressure. But once you get the ball back, the game building speed is very high. Having fast players, you will catch opposing players out of their defensive positions. Check out the characteristics of the counter-attack tactic: Game Building
