Hi, fellow players! Welcome back to another EA FC 24 formation guide. I'm glad to see you're enjoying the Team of the Season event. Today, I'll be delving into the 5-2-1-2 formation that can be used in the Weekend League. If you're curious about how it works, let's dive in and take a closer look.

EA FC 24: The 5-2-1-2 Formation Is Worth Trying In TOTS - Custom Tactics & Player Instructions

Custom Tactics

To start off the defensive tactics, the Defensive Style remains balanced, as always. Then The defensive Width is set at 30, allowing for a nice and narrow defensive line of 5. Depth is maintained at 50.

Move to the offensive tactics, the Build Up Play is balanced, with Direct Passing as the preferred method, a strategy akin to what you've likely encountered in various formations. Offensive Width stands at 50, ensuring adequate width provided by the Wing Backs, a crucial aspect we'll address in the player instructions shortly.

Then the Players In Box is set at 7, despite the 5-back setup. This formation isn’t defensively minded. In fact, it’s arguably the most attacking among similar formations. The Corner is set at 2, with Free Kicks at 1, but these are both personal preference.

Player Instructions

CAM: In this formation, the Central Attacking Midfielder takes center stage. Much like in the 4-1-2-1-2 narrow or 4-3-1-2 formations, everything revolves around the CAM. Whether it's creating assists or scoring goals, the CAM is the key to the team. So, it's crucial to have a standout player in this role.

For instance, having Jack Grealish in your team, with instructions to Get Into The Box For Cross, greatly enhances his goal-scoring abilities. By making forward runs, he becomes a constant threat in the opponent's box. However, it's essential to remain alert and use your own initiative, as situations can quickly change, requiring swift decision-making.

EA FC 24 Jack Grealish

We all prefer someone with speed, agility, and trickery in this role because they often receive the ball in tight spaces. When we regain possession, the ball swiftly goes to the Central Attacking Midfielder, creating numerical advantages, especially against opponents with advanced Full Backs.

It's all about seizing opportunities and understanding the dynamics of EA FC 24. You have to adapt to the situation because the formations and tactics won't adjust automatically. Additionally, the Central Attacking Midfielder is instructed to Get Into The Box For Crosses, adding another dimension to our attacking play.

Left & Right CM: So, the more attack-minded Central Midfielder in this formation is the Left Center Midfielder, you can have Robert Pires or Aston Villa. You're going to want to have that player on Balanced Attack, Get Into The Box For Cross and Cover Center.

Then, the more defensive-minded Central Midfielder, the Right Center Midfielder, such as Rodri or the Sergio Busquets, instructing them on Stay Back While Attacking and Cover Center. They will get the ball and pass it to the more attack-minded players.

Left & Right Wingers: Then, the most important players of the formation: the Left Wing Back and the Right Wing Back, instructing them both in Join The Attack and Overlap. So they will both be on Make Forward Runs, getting right up next to our Strikers.

But in terms of using the width, that's where the formation really comes into its own. Because you have the Left Wing Back bombing on, you have the Right Wing Back bombing on, on the overlap, and that gives us the width. Because then we do have our 3 Center Backs, where we don't need our Wing Backs to be on Stay Back While Attacking or anything like that in attack.

Goalkeeper: The goalkeeper is set on Comes For Crosses and Sweeper Keeper.

That concludes the 5-2-1-2 custom tactics and player instructions for EA FC 24 Team of the Season. Feel free to try this formation in your own matches if it suits your style of play!
