This weekend I broke my FUT Champions record with 29-1 (Top 125). Completely unimaginable, my previous record was 26-4.

I used this custom tactic in 451(2):

CML & CMR are like CAM, they must be good with the ball. In the clips you can see how dangerous Mollet and Ziyech are. Players like KDB, Bruno, Seedorf, Naingollan etc are excellent. If you have Neymar in your squad, try playing in CM like me with Ziyech. LM/RM are obviously important but not as important as CM.

Your central CM must be good in defense, with these instructions (Conservative interceptions) he is an CDM.

Quick review on some players:
- Maldini 88 is the best CB I played this year, he is too good.
- Ziyech in CM is excellent, better than CAM/LM/RM for me.
- RTTF Diaby is not the best player in the game but he is fun, very good dribbling, passing is OK and shooting is not good (but lot better than regular)

----

Edit - Second version of my 451(2) !
The movement of CM is more fluid and better in attack

    Nice work IamFrench, you'll now be able to attempt to qualify for pro tournaments I believe. Will you be entering any of the qualifiers?

    Out of interest, are you using this formation as a high possession based tactic or low possession and counter attacks? Or maybe something in between? Cheers.

    Qualifiers are this weekend.

    There are only like ~1200 spots in europe if this is his first 27+ i doubt that's enough unfortunately.

    Mollet was my savior this WL. Replaced pogba with him and he was much better as a go forward cm in 442.

    I have just bought maldini LB and played about 6-7 games with him. Do you highly rate him that much? Many games have you had with him

    The only one that interests me is to get the beta :D

    This formation is 50/50, you can play possession because you have a lot of solution with 2 CM - ST - LM/RM but it is also excellent in counter-attack. On these clips you can see phases of possession and phases of counter-attack. Generally, I have 55%~ possession. It is not a "dead" formation like the 4231 with 75% possession + 2 shots.

    As in previous years, Baby Maldini is just too good... I have something like 250 or 300 games with him.

    Yep but I play in 451(2) with 3 CM and not 451 (2 CAM). Kanté CMC, Mollet RCM!

    These formations with 1 ST and 3 midfielders are overlooked because people think they won’t be attacking enough - but the runs the CMs make in this formation and 4-3-3 variants seem to offer even more options going forward that 2 ST formations!

    Ahh unlucky. Good on you though for getting 26.

    Do you leave any games until Sunday or do you bash them out pretty fast? Always find when wrapping up my games late on a Sunday much easier. Although I'd imagine at that ELO its going to a tough game no matter when you play those last games.

    Well done on the finish, and thanks for sharing. Will put this as one of my formations and give it a go!

    Do you pretty much run this formation all game, or do you have a more defensive version when a couple of goals up?

    I've changed formation only once this weekend, on my last game for the 29th win I lost 4-1 or 4-2 I changed to the 451 with 2 CAM and I came back to 4-4... Extra-time i switched in 451(2) and I won 5-4 !

    Does them clips make the gameplay look faster than its supposed to be? Like all my players turn like a goal keeper during a fake shot, on here its a tight turn, my players its like they're turning a bus.

    The last clip 0.05 that touch jesus no one can stop that, if that happens against me I know im getting beat.

    Nice! Got to love it when a tactical change wins the game.

    So if I try this formation with my usual team, my midfielders and attackers are Kante, Pogba (could always get Bruno. I also have Mollet but he'd be 8 chem), RTTF Griezmann, Messi, Martial and Rashford.

    Would you say CCM Kante, LCM Messi, RCM Pogba, LM Griezmann, RM Martial and ST Rashford would be best?

    Hey, really nice results!

    What advantages does this have over say the 4-3-3(2)?

    I've been wanting to build a squad with that system, so I might copy your settings, they seem good.

    Another question, why is only one CM on "cover center" when the other players all have symmetrical instructions?

    And last one, how do you think Messi would play as the ST? I know you have the ST set to "Target man" but how would you say the position plays for the full 90?

    Thanks!

    I have to thank you. I changed to your formation and I won 5 games in a row in rivals and I should get rank 1 division 1 now. Can I ask though why you do 4 bars for corners please? Do you Cross it in or pass and do something else? Thanks

    Congrats that's awesome! Would you mind sharing your settings? Your players seem to make much more direct passes that mine often just don't (I'm also not as good as you) do you have stuff like auto flair pass turned off. Or any of your settings set to semi or manual?
