This will make it easier for you to determine which roles are discovered and which players could make a difference for your team. If, on the other hand, you need a hand to grow your team, we recommend that you consult our guide on how to get credits quickly in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.



    Introduction

    FIFA 22, the stands with the Liverpool fans

    The best lineups for FUT in FIFA 22 depend a lot on it style of play you want to adopt. A balanced 4-4-2, for example, offers a solid rearguard and midfield, capable of supporting offensive maneuvers as well. A line-up with five defenders, on the other hand, sacrifices potential scoring opportunities, but guarantees greater safety in the rear.

    Obviously it is also important to consider theUnderstanding and the best players you have. For example, if you have excellent strikers, the ideal would be to build a formation that suits their potential. Do not forget that it is possible to change the role of a player through the appropriate cards to obtain a better Understanding value. In short, there are many variables that you will need to take into account when it comes to creating the perfect team with the resources available.



    Even without the best players out there, picking a squad is the starting point for building the perfect team. Once you have decided on the structure and tactics to use, in fact, you can start thinking about what are the critical issues of your team and which players could be useful to reinforce the squad.

    The ones you find below are some formations that we suggest, but not necessarily the best in an absolute sense. In a competitive game like FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, the beauty is to experiment and find the perfect solution for your needs or to adapt to your opponents.

    4-2-3-1

    FIFA 22, dangerous action in the area

    Wherever you are looking for a defensive module that allows you to keep the team's offensive at bay, in FIFA 22 the 4-2-3-1 could be for you. With this formation, the defensive department receives a great deal of help from the CDC, which at the same time can give rise to dangerous counter attacks, with the right settings for customized tactics. It is also a great module to use in the late stages of a match to ensure victory if you are ahead.

    The disadvantage is that you don't have great support on the flanks from the advanced midfielders, but you can always opt for a wide 4-2-3-1 at the expense of midfield stability. At times you may also feel that your team is lacking bite in the opponent's trocar, in these cases you can change the settings for the advanced midfielders and make them more aggressive.


    Below are the custom tactics we recommend for 4-2-3-1. Obviously feel free to modify the settings according to your needs and tastes.

    4-4-2 containment

    FIFA 22, Mbappe

    Il 4-4-2 is a great classic and in its variant with two midfielders in front of the defensive line in FIFA 22 it is a balanced and versatile solution that offers a solid defense without giving up the attack.


    With this lineup it's probably best if the full backs don't advance too far, rather if you need a little extra aggression you can set up individual instructions to push the CDCs forward during offensive maneuvers. The 4-4-2 allows you to experiment with various different solutions, including also the 4-2-2-2 with two advanced midfielders behind the strikers if you like to play aggressively in midfield.

    Below are the custom tactics we recommend for this formation. Obviously feel free to modify the settings according to your needs and tastes.

    4-3-1-2

    FIFA 22, the understanding is essential to create the perfect team

    Il 4-3-1-2 is a compact formation in the center of the field and which allows a style of play based on ball possession, while on the flanks the full backs can give a hand in both offensive and defensive maneuvers.

    The disadvantage is that long balls on the flanks could leave you completely exposed, especially if the opposing team has fast winger. On the other hand, the two strikers and the COC to support them will be able to constantly put their opponents under pressure. As an alternative to this module you can try the 4-3-3 with three strikers if you want an even more aggressive and broad formation in the opponent's trocar, but at the expense of defensive stability.

    Below are the custom tactics we recommend for 4-3-1-2. Obviously feel free to modify the settings according to your needs and tastes.

    4-3-2-1

    FIFA 22, the heroes of FUT

    Il 4-3-2-1 is a formation that can give excellent results in FIFA 22 and guarantee many offensive options, especially thanks to the work on the flanks and the support of the midfielders.

    If set up and played properly it is a compact and disruptive module, which the opposing teams will find it hard to contain. On the other hand, however, you will be exposed in counter-attacks, especially on the flanks, as the full-backs will be forced to advance during the offensive maneuvers. If necessary, you can also switch from this formation to the 4-3-1-2, which we talked about above, to have a more solid team in case you are ahead and want to secure the advantage.

    Below are the custom tactics we recommend for 4-3-2-1. Obviously feel free to modify the settings according to your needs and tastes.

    3-1-4-2

    FIFA 22

    Il 3-1-4-2 in FIFA 22 it allows you to have an aggressive or defensive formation depending on your needs and the tactics you will use, proving to be one of the most versatile ever.

    If you are desperate for the goal you can push the midfielders into the flanks forward, focusing on the CDC to keep the midfield steady in the event of a counterattack. If, on the other hand, you have the advantage, you can ask the outsiders to help out in defense. And if you need a little more aggression, you can move up to 3-1-4-2 by substituting the half for a midfielder behind the strikers. Obviously all to the detriment of the stability of the defense.

    Below are the custom tactics we recommend for 3-1-4-2. Obviously feel free to modify the settings according to your needs and tastes.

    All custom tactics

    FIFA 22, Alexander Arnold

    Deciding which of the best FIFA 22 Ultimate Team formations to use is only the first step in achieving an efficient squad. In fact, it is also necessary to choose the custom tactics and give the right instructions to every single player.

    In the modules that we have proposed above you will find the customized tactics and instructions for the players that we consider most suitable. However, the only way to get the best result is to experiment with various different solutions, also based on your style of play and the players available. For this reason, below you will find an overview of the defensive and offensive tactics of FIFA 22.

    Defensive tactics

    Defensive tactics, of course, refer to your team's attitude when the opponent has possession of the ball and determine how your players will try to avoid conceding a goal.

    Defense style

    • Balanced: your team will assume a balanced defensive style, without putting too much pressure on the opponents.
    • Pressing on the first check: The team will try to predict when their opponents will make a mistake and will try to use it to their advantage to gain possession of the ball.
    • Pressing once the ball is lost: For seven seconds after losing possession of the ball, your team will press their opponents intensely. Effective, but in the long run it consumes the energy of your team.
    • Constant pressing: as before, but in this case the pressing will continue until you regain possession of the ball. Burn the stamina in no time, to use only if you are in trouble.
    • Fold back: the team will retreat en bloc, giving meters of field to the opponents but making the defensive line more compact.

    Amplitude determines how compact or spread your formation on the field will stay. Better not to deviate too much from the default value, given how important crosses are in FIFA 22. The Depth instead determines the position of the players on the field when you are not in control of the ball. Also in this case it is better not to deviate too much from the base value.

    Offensive tactics

    Offensive tactics determine the attitude of the team when you are in possession of the ball.

    Construction of the maneuver

    • Balanced / fast / slow: determines the team's approach during offensive maneuvers. At a high pace, the team will rapidly advance into the opposing half of the pitch as soon as you take control of the ball. On the contrary, with a slow pace the team will remain more compact allowing better control of possession of the ball.
    • Long Ball: useful if you have a point able to take advantage of long balls.

    Creating opportunities

    • Balanced: Players maintain their positions while in the opponent's trocar, making entries when to press L1 / LR or when they see fit.
    • Ball possession: Your teammates will offer more support to the player in possession of the ball rather than making insertions. This tactic favors short rallies, waiting for the right moment to strike.
    • Offensive insertions: when you have control of the ball, your teammates will try to penetrate the opposing defense with insertions, increasing the chances of going to the net but also those of suffering a counterattack.
    • Direct passages: when the team attacks, the players will try to make themselves dangerous by entering behind the defense to receive the ball in the spaces.

    The Width value affects how much the team will expand or compact when you are in control of the ball. Those relating to Corners and Penalties instead determine how many players will enter the area during corner kicks and free kicks. A high number increases the chances of going to the net, but also of suffering a ferocious counterattack.
