Hey guys you probably know me because I already wrote a 433(2) guide, this was supposed to play a nice passing game. I know this isn't made for everyone, so I decided to do the opposite and write a guide about 433(4) since this formation always gave me the easiest wins.
Also because there isn't one but I know a lot of people would like to see one.
This guide won't be that much in detail as my last one, so I will keep it short and simple. I will go about the players I suggest and later on about custom tactics and instructions.GK's
Tall guys is what you are looking for, long shots are OP in this game and these guys will stop them. Also long throw will come in handy, because this formation is great for counters and this will make you start them fast.Neuer, Cech, Courtois, De Gea, Handanovic, Oblak. You get the idea right?CB's
I prefer tall and strong guys with pace in this formation. I don't really care about their passing, which in 433(2) I really do care about.Chiellini, Manolas, Miranda, Godin, Ramos, etc.LB + RB
They have to be fast, I'm sorry if that's not what you wanted to hear. But if you want to be competitive in div 1, you need fast fullbacks. They have to be decent defenders because that is what you are using them for in this formation.Walker, Abate, Alaba, Alba, Dani Alves, Diekmeier, Alex Sandro, etc.CM's
I really enjoyed having 2 box to box guys here. So I suggest having 2 H/H's or 1 H/H and 1 M/M, it's all up to you. They need decent stamina, because they will cover a lot of the pitch. I don't suggest M/H guys here, you need well rounded CM's.Marchisio, Naingollan, Kroos, Pjanic, Dembele, Ramires, Modric, Vidal, etc.CAM
This is where it becomes fun. I leave this up to you because in my opinion there is a wide choice here. You can pick a true CAM or a second striker, whatever you prefer. I personally like a guy that is quick and agile, but also had succes with stronger less agile guys like Pogba.De Bruyne, Mertens, Hamsik, Pogba, Muller, Iniesta, etcLW + RW
Workrates don't matter in this position, because we will give them instructions. Pick quick wingers with good dribbling and decent finishing. 4* WF + 4* Skills are a nice thing to have as well.Cuadrado, Ronaldo, Anderson, Hazard, Reus, Ribery, Douglas Costa, etc.ST
This is up to you, but I suggest a quick and agile striker, because the get in behind is so OP in this game. Target man work as well, but I think they kind off limit you in counter possibilities.Aguero, Dybala, Suarez, Lacazette, Aubameyang, etcCustom tactics
This let's you play a high pressure game, with a quick buildup so you can counter effectively.Instructions
LB + RB: Stay back
LW + RW: Get in behind and cut inside
ST: Get in behind and press back line (If you use a target man, put stay central + target man)
I leave the midfield on balanced and found this works best.
This is the squad I used for this guide and won Div 1 8-0-0 with:
Hope you guys have fun with this. If you want to play a more beautiful game, make sure to check out my 433(2) guide.
