Tips and Tricks

Have you ever wanted to beat your friend on FIFA no matter what it takes? If yes, then consider it your lucky day as we are going to help you beat the unbeatable. The following tips and tricks are going to help you master the skills on FIFA 19. Let the games begin!

1.      Timed Finishing

The recent upgrade on FIFA 19 allows you to make a timed shot (time being the keyword), which if executed perfectly, hits the top corner of the goal. It will not matter who the keeper is, because he will not know what hit him.

But here’s the catch, before trying to pull off a timed finish from a ridiculous angle, you need to be sure that your player is not under any defensive pressure. If your player is under pressure or off-balance, there is a high probability that you are going to miss the goal by a mile away. So, before you try to hit a wonder, be sure to see if the TIME is right.

2.      Win Aerial Duel

Having trouble while tussling in the air against an opponent and seeing the beautiful lobe pass going to waste? Well, here are some news for you- you can move your player around before the ball lands on the ground. Yes, that is right!

While, you have played a lob pass or see a cross coming, hold the LT or L2 button to move your receiving player at a better position. This will help you increase your chances of winning the aerial duel and attain the possession.

Tip: This way will make your striker more lethal in front of your opponent’s goal.

3.      Control the Keeper

If your opponent has found its way past your last defender, there is still one last resort and that is your goalkeeper. Goal keepers can be very effective in 1-on-1 situations and even winning the corner balls. To use your goal keeper while facing a striker running towards your goal, press the right analog stick (also known ‘R3’) and take control of your goal keeper.

Moving your goalkeeper’s position can sometimes make it hard for the striker to score. Another way of confusing the striker is to rush your keeper towards the ball by pressing the triangle/Y button. This will cause havoc for the striker.

4.      Pre-kick off Team Tactics

FIFA 19 has introduced new ways of altering your tactics before the game. The good thing about customizing your tactics is that it completely changes the way your team approaches the game. By pressing L2/LT after selecting your team, get into the details of editing your team tactics.  For instance, if you want to play more defensive, reduce the width of your team, choose to drop back and set defensive, to use it while you are leading the scoreboard.

5.      FUT Edge

Having second gold squad as a “B team” is a great way not to worry about the fitness card. Bench your first team players and second team reserves and vice-versa. Now, on alternate basis, play online with your first team, while putting to test the second team offline. This will make sure that the fitness of your players never drops and you will not have to endure the loss of morale.

6.      The Key Traits

You should be very careful while utilizing your PRO club skill points, as they are the means to make or break your player. It is wise to build up your player’s speed and agility along with skill moves instead of investing in volleys and penalties. Having dribbling skills along with agility is a trait that will produce a difference in a game. FIFA 19 has come out with a lot of features that make a football match more unpredictable and competitive. With the above tips and tricks up your sleeve, you can take on the best players and walk away victorious.
