What Are The Best Custom Tactics For 4-3-3?

Custom Tactics for a 4-3-3 in EA Sports FC 24.

Since each 4-3-3 is constructed around a similar basic idea, you can use these custom tactics as a template, adjusting them as needed to fit the style of play you’re aiming to achieve.

Most importantly, you want a Depth of 70 or higher for your defensive tactics, while the Width is a bit more flexible depending on which areas you want to attack.

Having a Depth above 70 pushes your players’ natural positions a bit closer to where the opposing team will be, giving the other side far less room to work with on offense.

Width in the 40-60 range should provide you with a good variety to choose from depending on what works best for you.

Generally, if you have faster players who can take advantage of space, then more Width should serve you well.

Five or six players in the box should be plenty for you to take advantage of your opportunities, but you can always add one more if you are feeling risky.

It’s generally recommended not to go all-in on Corners or Free Kicks, so keep those at a happy medium of two or three, or bump it down to one if you prefer to be conservative.

Build-Up Play should remain set to Balanced.

Your Chance Creation should be set to Direct Passing.

Each formation will vary slightly, but here are some general outlines for your front three’s player instructions:

Striker/Center Forward

  • Support Runs: Stay Central
  • Attacking Runs: Get In Behind
  • Interceptions: Normal (Default)
  • Defensive Support: Basic (Default)

Right Wing/Left Wing

  • Defensive Support: Come Back On Defence
  • Chance Creation: Balanced (Default)
  • Support Runs: Come Short
  • Support On Crosses: Get Into The Box
  • Interceptions: Normal (Default)

How To Use The 4-3-3

The 4-3-3 Formation in EA Sports FC 24.

Personnel Needed:

  • One LB & one RB
  • Two CBs
  • Three CMs
  • One RW & one LW
  • One ST

The base 4-3-3 will be the standard by which you can judge which variation is best for your style of play.

This formation offers a complete balance between offense and defense, keeping every player strictly in their listed positions.

Midfielders will stay central and maintain control, but won’t be asked to jump into the play very often, except in rare all-out offensives.

You will rely on your forwards to generate offense and the Striker should be a target man or someone who can score from service via the wingers.

If you value adhering to the strict definitions of each third of the pitch, then this formation will keep things simple, yet flexible.

How To Use The 4-3-3 (2)

The 4-3-3 (2) Formation in EA Sports FC 24.

Personnel Needed:

  • One LB & one RB
  • Two CBs
  • Two CMs
  • One CDM
  • One RW & one LW
  • One ST

The 4-3-3 (2) shifts the focus from a midfield three who stick to their positions to a more specialized distribution of roles.

One midfielder drops back into a CDM role, which means you’re able to take more risks with your two box-to-box midfielders, but they won’t be diving into the box without your encouragement.

Your forwards will still carry your offensive output, but they should have an extra bit of support from either CM if they decide to step up.

How To Use The 4-3-3 (3)

The 4-3-3 (3) Formation in EA Sports FC 24.

Personnel Needed:

  • One LB & one RB
  • Two CBs
  • Two CDMs
  • One CM
  • One RW & one LW
  • One ST

The 4-3-3 (3) leans further into the defensive approach that began in the 4-3-3 (2), converting another CM to CDM, creating a double pivot in your midfield.

Here, you should focus on setting traps and clogging the midfield to create counter-attacking opportunities.

CDMs that possess good passing range will excel here as they should focus on winning possession, and then redistributing it out wide into space.

How To Use The 4-3-3 (4)

The 4-3-3 (4) Formation in EA Sports FC 24.

Personnel Needed:

  • One LB & one RB
  • Two CBs
  • Two CMs
  • One CAM
  • One RW & one LW
  • One ST

The 4-3-3 (4) is arguably the best formation in EA Sports FC 24, and is often the favored variation of the famous 4-3-3 formation, as it offers a much more offensive approach than any of the prior iterations.

Your CAM will act as a fourth forward, at times replacing the Striker who may be leading an attack, or pushing up to get into a dangerous position.

Each CM should function in a versatile box-to-box role, so players who excel on both sides of the ball are preferred here.

Keeping possession and distributing the ball to your CAM and forwards in dangerous positions is the key focus.

How To Use The 4-3-3 (5)

The 4-3-3 (5) Formation in EA Sports FC 24.

Personnel Needed:

  • One LB & one RB
  • Two CBs
  • Two CMs
  • One CDM
  • One RW & one LW
  • One CF

The 4-3-3 (5) is reminiscent of the formation that brought Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to Champions League and Premier League glory.

The Striker is swapped for a Central Forward who will pivot between a distributing role (like a CAM) and a more direct, attacking position.

In essence, the CF functions as both a fourth midfielder and a third forward, depending on the position of the ball.

Your CDM should be adept at breaking up opposing breaks and clearing the ball out of danger. Someone like Rodri who can also step into a distributing role would be ideal for a CDM.
