Tips on defensive

Hi guys,

I found myself being troubled by the FIFA18 defense again. I have been using contain and tried to block the space but somehow still very easy to give ways to attackers. Any tips?

Also, when I am attacking, I found my opponent's CB can easily take control of my ball with their physical strength/shoulders. How to do that?

Cheers

    So far this is my experience too. Even jockey contain my guys go skating by

    And the AI does absolutely nothing

    I think you dont sprint when you use X, same when you let another defender press R1. Not using those for the moment. Been using jockey defending last 2 years, i think? Can hold off Ai on legendary most of my games:)

    thank you all the guys.

    The most trouble time was playing online games, during which I found most of opponents use fast players just out ran my defenders easily, even with ball in dribbling.

    Also, it seems the ball control is particular strong this year. Even my defenders joggling side by side with the opponents player, they cannot disturb their ball control or take over the ball.
