Does 4312 have any advantage over 41212 narrow?

9835 posts Has That Special Something
I use 41212 narrow and it’s the only formation I’ve had consistent success with the last two years. I see people using 4312 but other than it being a centre mid instead of a CDM does it actually play any different?

    41212 narrow is very good but you just need players with little bit pace in the middle to cover the wings for counter.. is very successful with the right players…2 Cm and cam need to be agile and a very defensive CDM to cover the back.

    I was actually thinking the same thing this weekend so would also like to know. I always use 4-1-2-1-2 narrow but with the gameplay issues we are having this year being at their worst (imo) I have found the 4-1-2-1-2 narrow formation falls apart. Mainly because when the ai stops working properly the LCM and RCM just stand still and do not get involved at all. Been having to switch to 4-2-3-1 when this happens and set both CDMs to stay back.
