FIFA 23 META: The 4-2-3-1 Formation

Joksan has his team set up in a 4-2-3-1 formation with various roles for all the players on FIFA 23. Here's a list on which roles to give to certain players.

Centre Backs

For your centre backs, it's default for all of the instructions.

Right Back

Instruct your right back to stay back whilst the team is attacking and to have overlapping runs. The rest are all default.

Left Back

Your left back has the same instructions as his counterpart on the right side.

Right Defensive Midfielder

The instructions for your right defensive midfielder is to cut the passing lanes, stay back whilst attacking and to cover the centre to help the defence. The rest of the instructions are default.

Centre Attacking Midfielder


For the centre of your attack, all the instructions are default.


Right Attacking Midfielder

Instruct your winger to come back and help the defence and to come into the box for crosses. The rest of the instructions are default.

Left Attacking Midfielder

For the left side, it is the exact same instructions as his counterpart on the right wing.


For the spearhead of your attack, instruct your striker to get in behind for his attacking runs and to help the defence by coming back. Default is the option for all other instructions.


FIFA 23 META 4-2-3-1 Tactics

To make this FIFA 23 META formation and the player's roles the most effective, select the following:

Select the defensive style as balanced and the defensive width and depth should be selected at 45 and 60 respectively.

For offence, build up play is balanced with chance creation through direct passing and 60 is selected for attacking width. 5 players should be in the box and it is the 2nd lowest option for both free kicks and corners.



FIFA 23 has been out for a few weeks now and since then players have found other alternative META tactics. We have our own guide to our favourite tactics in the game if you want to try something different.
