Anyone got any advice.

I feel like when I play online, I lose balls in the air 80% of the time. Then If I do win the header it hits the bar or goes over. Not sure If my timing is wrong or if this is just another gameplay feature.

Anyone got any advice, tutorials etc.

    I haven’t won a header from a cross since patch 2 , so I just don’t cross anymore :D

    And my crosses never go where I want

    Go to the line, cut in, cross to the far post.

    I use Hazard and Bale.

    Press L2 or LT when going for the header along with whichever button you are going for and you will win a lot more headers, especially if defending or heading a goal kick etc

    I use L1+square early crosses, eventually Mbappé, Hazard or Reus scores.

    Thanks for the advice. It does seem very random.
    The only thing I have noted is far post crosses seem to be alot more likely for me to win than any other type (doesn't matter who is at the far post, who is in the center, how many players etc).

    Try to time runs from the strikers one team i uses FB pato as a lone striker even though he has amazing hops still has to be in good position. IF Talissca isnt strong enough for me so i have to be sure they have space when i cross.

    Used to have a 352 Seri A team that used Zaza and Icardi up top. The make space so you’ll always find their dome

    Tatget man types will hold people off and ones like Icardi and Zaza who are strong tall and can jump generally win most headers.

    Other strikers/forwards you gotta find them when they’re open

    Depends a lot on personnel as well. Kane lukaku cavani Klose Mandzukic - those big monsters bury headers in the middle.
