Tactics aside, here are the 12 best formations in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team.

12 Best Formations in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team

12: 4-5-1

4-5-1 is one predicated on one thing: attacking play. With two wide midfielders, two attacking midfielders and a striker up top, 4-5-1 is one of the most attacking formations in the game. Although, it does leave players open to counter attacks.

11: 4-1-2-1-2 Wide

Two striker formations have their clear merits and are among the most popular in the game this year. The 4-1-2-1-2 wide variation suffers from being too wide, but it's not the worst in the game.

10: 4-1-3-2

4-1-3-2 is more or less a compressed version of 4-1-2-1-2 wide, but not as condensed as the narrow variation. If you have the personnel, it's worth experimenting with this formation.

9: 4-3-1-2

4-3-1-2 is one of the lesser used formations, but any formation with two strikers and an attacking midfielder are strong in FIFA 20.

8: 4-2-2 (2) Holding

The less preferred version of the 4-4-2, the second variation has the two midfielders drop back into defending positions.

7: 4-3-2-1

One of the most narrow formations in the game, 4-3-2-1 allows your three forwards to make consistent runs behind the opponent's back line.

6: 4-2-2-2

4-2-2-2 is one of the most tried and true formations in FIFA Ultimate Team history. Offering two strikers, two attacking midfielders and two defensive midfielders, 4-2-2-2 is a strong option in-game and also easy for linking central based players.

5: 4-2-3-1 (2) Wide

A variation of the most popular formation from FIFA 19, 4-2-3-1 (2) pushes the two outside CAMs to wide midfielders.

4: 4-2-3-1

The most popular formation from FIFA 19 returns as a strong option this year. Dynamic attacking midfielders with two CDMs warrants both strong attacking and defensive play.

3: 4-4-2

Defensive tactics such as Drop Back are popular once again. Use the flat 4-4-2 in order to get two strikers but also

2: 4-3-3 (4) Attack

4-3-3's attack variation is popular among most content creators including Castro1021. He used said formation, albeit with superstar players, to achieve 30-0 in FUT Champions. Setting one CM to stay back allows strong build-up play between the two midfielders, the CAM and the forwards.

1: 4-1-2-1-2 (2) Narrow

4-1-2-1-2 narrow succeeds in offering strong build up play through the middle of the pitch and two strikers backed by a CAM. With how overpowered two striker formations are this year, this formation is one of the most, if not the most popular in the game
