    2017 Best Counter Formation Versus 4-3-3

    Hi guys,
    I know that 4-1-2-1-2 or 3-1-4-2 or 3-5-2 v can beat 4-3-3. But sometime they failed! So on your opinions, this 2017 what is the BEST formation to beat this strong middle 4-3-3? And what orders should be deployed if play at home/away versus a strong/weak oppo? Feel free to express your thoughts, tq...

    Try formations that use the flanks mostly and have at least 4 defenders, such as 4-51 V, 4-1-4-1. Also, 3-1-3-2W-1 and 3-3-2W-2 could work, but I did not try them against 4-3-3 hence they are also offensive formations.
    With 4-51 V and 4-1-4-1
    Defensive or Normal Mentality

    Low press

    Through the both flanks

    Long or mixed passes

    Force counterattacks (if you lose the ball possession so much switch it off then if nothing changes again reswitch it on)

    No offside trap

    Normal or Hard tackling

    Zonal marking (After 70 if you are losing or still drawn, may open man-to-man)

    Up arrows on DR, DL, ML, MR (AML,AMR), down arrow on DMC if you play 4-5-1V

    Good luck

    I just finished a game against 4-3-3 with an equal opponent on an away game. I started 4-1-2-1-2 ND attacking mentality and until half time it was 0-0. I switched to 3-2dmc-3ml-mc-mr- 2( a formation i saw on youtube). And up until 75th minute it was 0-0. As soon as i switched to 4-1-4-1 normal mentality and forward arrows to ml and mr only, my team scored 3 goals and i won 0-3. I never actually liked 4-1-4-1 but its actually the only formation effective against 4-3-3 for me.

    I tried 4-1-4-1 with up arrows on the ML and MR and won 2-1

    I had previously tried 3-2-1-1-3 against the same opponent and won 4-0
