    20 width? I know that people prefer narrow formations, but that will get you murdered in FUT Champs imo.

    Fair play to you that you've found a winning strategy.

    Made this team to use based on the custom tactics given and it's made Fifa alot more enjoyable for me.
    I can keep the ball no problem and payet and pedro, even though they are not the fastest seem to get through 1 on 1 with the keeper several times per game.
    With a finisher card on him the striker is a monster as well.
    Team only cost me 70k in total

    Gonna give these CTs/Inst a go. I've been doing pretty well with the formation but creating prime scoring chances was a chore.

    Currently working with:

    Higuain
    Perisic - Gomez - Bernardeschi
    De Rossi - Strootman
    IF Ghoulam - Benatia - Manolas - Lichsteiner
    P. Schmeichel

    I have Insigne that I can swap for Perisic and I have Felipe Anderson that I can swap for Berardeschi but kind of like the balance I have at the moment.

    Is that screenshot fairly representative for you?

    If so I wouldn't call it a counter attack tactic if you're having 70+ % posession

    I love 4231(2) though so will give your tactics and instructions a go!

    @IamFrench do you change your interceptions instructions to compensate for the 90 aggression or does it not gas your stamina all that bad that you've noticed?

    Its smart...this is a fairly standard game for me since the patch. Other team, ptb, op ai shot blocking, incredible keepers, a couple counter attacks and we end up here.
