Whether you are playing defense or offense on FIFA 17, there's only one objective in mind and that is to score lots of goals. It is a no-brainer, of course, that lots of goals mean winning the game. However, it seemed like a mystery to FIFA 17 players what the best formation is to get the scores you want. Here are some tips how to do that.
First of all, pick who your best attackers are and place them up at the top. On the other hand, put your best goal scorer in the center or middle of the field while those known for their speed and passing abilities should be positioned at the wings.
To further strengthen your FIFA 17 team, make sure to support the above positions with a strong center attacking midfield (CAM) with a high work rate. Place him just below your middle striker.
After that, place two center defensive midfielders (CDM) just below the CAM. These players will enable you to take the ball out of the midfield. This will make you hit hard on the counter and also give you a lot of opportunities for breakaways.
Once you place all the FIFA 17 players in their desired positions, go to the instruction tab and choose the following options: Left wing- Drift Wide/Get Behind, Middle strike - Stay Central/Get Behind, Right wing - Drift Wide/Get Behind, and the two CDMs to "Aggressive Interceptions." After that select "Possession" as your tactic.
During the FIFA 17 play, always make sure that the ball stays on the ground while working it through the midfield. Also be aware of your attackers and wait for them to go on a run. Hit them using some thorough passes as they spread out across the field to execute the defense. Your attackers placed up top can spread out across the field and provide you with a wide area. Don't rush out too suddenly but make even and conservative passes to keep your position. Also make sure that you don't turn the ball over many times.
