Best formations and tactics to start in Ultimate Team

What kind of formations are they? Some FIFA professionals are already figuring out strong formations in FIFA 22. The official release of the game is still pending , but thanks to Early Access , some players have already had the opportunity to dive into FUT.

We show you three formations of professionals who each pursue different approaches to the game and can offer you a basis for your teams. 

4-3-2-1 - Strong defensively but dangerous

This is what defines the formation: The 4-3-2-1 is currently seen by some YouTubers as the preferred formation at the start. One of these players is "The FIFA Analyst" (via YouTube ), who introduces a compact but offensively dangerous variant of this formation. 

In its version, the team stands compact behind and orders the full-backs inside if necessary. This creates a strong block with the full and central defenders as well as the middle ZM midfielders, which is difficult to overcome. 

At the front, RZM, LZM and the three attackers create danger. The focus is on fast, powerful passes (you can do them with R1 / RB and X / A).

The goal is to get the central striker to the ball and then hold the ball in front of the goal. The other two offensives and central midfielders should then move up to get a template from the striker. Then all you have to do is lock. Provided the goalkeeper doesn't hold too hard, you should get quite a few hits.

Use these tactics and instructions: The FIFA Analyst uses these settings:

4-1-2-1-2 (2) - Balanced formation for dribblers

This is what defines the formation: YouTuber “RunTheFutMarket” ( via YouTube ) actually deals with topics like trading in FIFA 22 , but also has some good tactical tips. He recommends the 4-1-2-1-2 (2).

He relies on high pass and dribble values ​​in the attack. Attacks should be initiated with fast passing until the strikers then dribble into promising situations. To get more options across the board, you also bring in a full-back who is strong at attacking and dribbling.

3-4-1-2 - for full offensive

This list by FIFA-Pro “BorasLegend” ( via YouTube ) gives you numerous options in the attack. The main thing here is to score more goals than the opponent - because defensively, the formation is not the best. But especially if you are behind and want to attack, this is a good option.

If you need a little more support from midfield, you can switch to 3-5-2 as an alternative. 

Use this tactic: 

  • Balanced
