You need 5-2-3 as the base formation. In this formation, you again have 5 defenders with 3 central defenders with 2 wide full-backs acting as wing-backs.

With 3 attackers, LW, RW, and ST, you can launch a counter-attack against your opponent from the center and the wings. You can counter this with 4-3-3 formation.

5-3-2 Formation

In this formation, you have three CB players and it relies on wing-backs providing width to the team. You also have 2 wide full-backs as wing-backs who work their flank along the entire pitch supporting both the defense and the attack. This formation can be countered with 4-3-3.

4-5-1 (2) Formation

This is the defensive version of the 4-5-1 and requires 4-5-1 as base formation. This is more a playing safe formation and can be countered with 5-3-2 formation.

4-2-3-1 (2) Formation

This is a defensive version of 4-2-3-1 (1 / Narrow) formation and requires 4-5-1 as base formation. Instead of two CAM players, you have an RM and an LM who will assist your line striker from the sides. It can be countered with 4-5-1 or 4-4-2 formation.

4-1-4-1 Formation

Requires 4-5-1 base formation. This is sort of a hybrid of attacking and defending formation and is suitable for players who like to attack opponents using counters instead of direct attack.

This formation has 4 defenders, 1 defensive midfielder, 4 midfielders, and one attacker. With this formation, you have a better chance of possessing the ball and launch counter-attacks using the lone attacker who is recommended to have high PAC rate.

This formation can be countered with 3-5-1 or 3-5-1-1 formation.
