Three Defenders along with two defensive midfielders make a strong defense.Also the defensive midfileders may switch according to the situation to attack.A right midfielder and left midfielder launch the crosses and create chance.While two of the main strikers can convert them.One of them be a supporting striker.Also, an attacking midfielder just behind the striker can create chances from the center.So,we have 5 Attackers and 5 defenders along with the GK which gives us a perfect and balanced team.You may think that defense should be more solid and so this formation also allowed you to easily make changes during the game.
