Best DLS 24 Formations, Guaranteed Wins!

You might be wondering what the best DLS formations to support your game without losing, here you will find the secret you’ve been waiting for

After previously writing about the best DLS formations in the old version, now I will also create one for Dream League Soccer 24 which applies to the upcoming version.

In this article, I will only explain the formations, tactics remain the same as in the old version article.

For player matters, please see the list of best DLS players by rating.

Now for the DLS24 formations, there are some changes, because the engine used is different from DLS 2019.

So, the formations I often used before do not apply to DLS24 and the upcoming versions.

I have also tried several formations and in my opinion, there are 3 formations that are most enjoyable to use.

But after an update, everything felt different and only 2 formations have become my mainstays.

It should be emphasized, the formation I use is full attack because I don’t like to defend.

If you want to see the proof, I include one of my account’s screenshots:

DLS Overall Statistic

Actually, there is another account with much better statistics, but because that account cannot play online anymore, I never open it again.

But still, from the example above, you can already see the evidence that the formations I use are truly effective for demolishing opponents.

However, it must be admitted, I still use tricks to keep winning in DLS, hehe.

#1 Formation for Career & Exhibition

This formation applies to playing in exhibition or career mode (not against humans).

Career & Exhibition

From what I’ve tried, there are 2 favorite formations that I always use, because these formations still feel good with every DLS update.

The formations are 3-5-2 and 3-4-3 with an Attacking style.

But I often use 3-5-2 because we only need to change the AM (attacking midfielder), RM (right winger), and LM (left winger) players (fits the limit of 3 substitutions).

If using the 3-4-3 formation, yes, there are many forwards. But the stamina of 3 strikers and 4 midfielders will be drained, even though substitutions are limited to 3 players only.

Now for the player line-up with the 3-5-2 formation, you can see it in the following image:

Meanwhile, the player line-up with the 3-4-3 formation is as follows:

3-4-3 Attacking Tactics

The substitute players I use (for the 3-5-2 formation) are:

  1. Philipe Coutinho (replacing Kevin De Bruyne)
  2. Sadio Mane / Neymar JR (replacing Kylian Mbappe)
  3. Paul Pogba (replacing Casemiro)
  4. N’golo Kante (replacing Toni Kroos)
  5. Mohamed Salah / Alexander-Arnold / Paulo Dybala (replacing Antoine Griezmann)
  6. Kalidou Koulibaly (replacing Raphael Varane)
  7. Jan Oblak (replacing Alisson)

I don’t really care about defense, because my playing style is total attack.

But that goes back to you, what suits you best? Because this is just a suggestion from my personal experience.

#2 Formation for Dream League Live

This formation is specifically for Dream League Live (playing online against humans).

DLS Online

Usually when we play online (against humans), the opponents we face are much tougher than computer opponents (AI).

If we’re lucky, we’ll get amateur opponents. But that’s very rare, so don’t get your hopes up too much.

Now for this online playing formation, to be honest, I’m a bit confused because I no longer play online.

But the important thing is we have to organize our defense well, because when defending sometimes players tend to run aimlessly (different from the direction of the ball).

Finally, the formation I often use is 5-2-1-2 with a defensive strategy or sometimes I use normal (Moderate).

5-2-1-2 Moderate Formation

Use strong and fast wing players, such as Sadio Mane, Alexander-Arnold, Alex Sandro, or if necessary, place Raphael Varane as a wing-back.

Don’t forget to make midfield substitutions if it’s already around the 55th – 70th minute.

Alright, that’s probably the best DLS formation (version 24 and above) that I can share.

For the rest, it’s still the same as DLS 2019, just read and adjust until you find the best composition.
