433 (2) Holding
I have been playing with 2 CDM formations most of Fifa 19, but I wanted to try some new players that worked better in this formation 433-2. In the past I really liked this formation for its possession play.
Despite having very reasonable and balanced tactics and formations, my midfield is a complete mess on defense.
I have RCM Firmino on get forward, LCM Silva on balanced, both cover wings. Then I have Fabinho at CDM on stay back while attacking and cover center. My defense tactics on balanced with 5 depth. Literally on every play, Fabinho who should be the holding midfielder watches the play go around him while both CMs are gunning back to cover (and as a result theyre stamina is trash). The midfield triangle literally inverts on defense, with the 2 CMs dropping to defend and Fabinho CDM further up the pitch! Any tips?
Drop back instead of balanced defense?
Change the depth?
Cut passing lanes or man mark on CDM?
As an aside, I built this squad to use Flashback Ibra. OMG! On attach this squad is crazy good.
