Counter Attacks play a significant role in the game, offering a large number of opportunities for scoring in EA FC 24. By employing certain strategies and techniques, you can capitalize on each Counter Attack. Drawing from my experience, these insights may assist you in achieving top ranks during events like Team of the Year on Foot Champs while enriching your overall enjoyment of the game.
Indeed, executing a successful Counter Attack can be immensely gratifying. After preparing for enough EA Sports FC 24 Coins to boost your players, let's just delve into the strategies.
First tips I want to show you is to use your triangles in almost every formation in FC 24. Let’s take the 4-2-3-1 as an example. You have got a triangle between your Right Back, Right CDM, and Right Attacking Mid, and another triangle between your Left Back, Left CDM, and Left Attacking Mid. Another example is the 4-4-2. You have got a triangle between your Right Back, Right Mid, and Right Center Mid, and another one for your Left Back, Left Center Mid, and Left Mid.
This step is not only for Counter Attacks, it’s also for build up. If you want to build up right and score a goal, then use your triangles. It can work with almost every formation in EA FC 24 and It works absolutely perfectly for Counter Attacks.
Let’s move on to the second tip. I’m going to talk about the best trick that I use for Counter Attacks, which is going to be the fake run with the Winger. To start things off, we’re going to start with controls. You can make your player try to get in behind and run forward by pressing L1 on PlayStation or LB on Xbox while aiming at him if he doesn’t have the ball. If you have the ball with the player that you want to try to get in behind, what you have to do is hold the L1 or the LB button and then pass the ball. After he passes the ball, you’re going to see him trying to get in behind and running forward.
This trick mostly works with a formation that has 2 Strikers. What you want to do here is make a fake run with your Winger. Pretend like you are waiting for your Winger to get in behind so you can pass to him. At this moment, your opponent will start covering your Winger and forget about your second Striker, who will already be in behind. Now, all you have to do is just wait for the right moment so you can pass it to your second Striker.
Make a fake run with your Striker and keep your eyes on the Right Wing and Left Wing and wait for the right moment so you can play it to the Right Wing and Left Wing who will be already trying to get in behind. If you saw your opponent trying to cover the Striker, you can easily play it to the Right Wing or Left Wing. And if you saw your Striker got in behind, you can easily play it to him.
Let’s move on to some formation tips for Counter Attacks. The best formations for Counter Attacks are the 4-2-3-1, the 4-2-4, the 4-4-2, 4-2-3-1, and the 4-1-2-1-2 (Narrow). For the 4-1-2-1-2 (Narrow), it’s an absolutely great formation for Counter Attacks. If you want to use it that way, make sure to use 'Get Into The Box For Cross' for your Right Attacking Mid and Left Attacking Mid. With that, you’re going to see them trying to get in behind if you are going for a Counter Attack.
Moving on into the 4-2-4, one of the best attacking formations in FC 24. If you want to use it that way, make sure to use 'Cut Inside, Get Into The Box For Cross, and Get In behind' for the Right Wing and left wing. Have 1 of your Strikers on 'Get in Behind', 'Stay Central', and 'Stay Forward', and the other one with everything on default, just 'Come Back On Defense'. With that, your Right Striker is going to be the playmaker on this formation, so he can assist the Right Wing, Left Wing, or the Left Striker if you are going for a Counter Attack.
Same thing for the 4-4-2, 'Cut Inside, Get In behind, and Get Into The Box For Cross” for the Right Mid and Left Mid, with 1 Striker on 'Come Back On Defense' only, and the other one will 'Stay Forward', 'Stay Central', and 'Get In Behind'.
For the 4-2-3-1, probably the best Counter Attack formation to use in FC 24. You have got a Center Attacking Mid on this formation who will be assisting the Right Attacking Mid, Left Attacking Mid, and the Striker. For instructions, make sure you are using 'Get Into The Box For Cross' for your Right Attacking Mid, Left Attacking Mid, and the Center Attacking Mid.
Not only that, also I recommend using “Stay Forward” for the Center Attacking Mid. So if you are going for a Counter Attack, you need a player who assists the Striker, and that’s going to be the Center Attacking Mid. Instructions for the Strikers are 'Get in Behind', 'Stay Central', and 'Stay Forward'. For the Center Attacking Mid, 'Get into The Box', and that’s it.
These are all the tips and tricks that I use for Counter Attacks in EA FC 24. Counter Attacks are the most satisfying way to score a goal.
