Im beyond stumped every weekend league i score at least 2 yet have lost most this weekend the last game was a fantastic example 2-0 up half time opponent had had one shot end up losing 5-2. He scored a screamer to make it 2-1 then my defence collapsed every time i concede 1 my defence just breaks down and does everything wrong. How do people get clean sheets. My defences tackles go to the opponent most the time they dont ever stand in good positions to intercept through balls i can only control one defender obviously im making mistakes but the way my defence opens up is ridiculous. Any tips id happily lose 1-0 instead of winning 6-5 at this point.

    When you're 1-0 up, go defensive,
    2-0 up, go defensive, change formation to either 4-2-3-1 (flat) or 4-1-4-1

    Bring on fast wingers to help you counter attack. Lower pressure to 30 in custom tactics and play on the counter attack. Try keep the ball and play through the wings

    I have played 15 games this WL, 8 clean sheets and 5 games only 1 goal against. I play 4-2-3-1. I have put shadow on 6 defensive players (4 backs and Nainggolan and Kante). I never use the 2nd man press, because they can come from anywhere and this means that in other parts of the field you miss a player. Defend with LT/L2, only use a tackle if you're almost certain to intercept or if you have enough players behind the ball who can defend if your tackle fails. I use PTB after every goal I score, because I conceded more goals after kick off. After I have obtained the ball again, I go back to balanced. Hope this helps!

    Attack is the best defence, score more goals than them..

    If tried all that ..!! Doesn’t work!! I keep attacking, very rarely change formations, always check to see who is giving their all and who is being a lazy fook, so I sub him..

    I’ve had games where you’re strolling and all of a sudden bang you’re opponent gets a goal from nothing, Then you’re struggling to do anything as he has the momentum.. you won’t realise it but you can start to be a bit harsher with you’re controller because you start to tense up, mind becomes filled with rage, so that effects how you are playing..

    Prime example Liverpool versus AC Milan champ league final, 3-0 to Milan halftime.
    Liverpool get a goal and it’s all down hill for Milan.. Liverpool go and win the champions league cup..
