Why dont defenders with 99 def awareness etc not track the run of players who have just done a 1.2 pass leaving him to run into a open space towards the goal?

    Would be nice if they buffed defending.

    Stop letting the AI play the game for you. Manually move your defenders and stop running back with Kante or w.e midfielder you have

    1-2s are the oldest FIFA trick. You just switch and cover the run. Do you want the game to do all the work?

    This year, defending is almost entirely on YOU. It’s a huge step up from players like me who did rely somewhat on the AI in last years FIFA.

    I’m still getting the hang of it and it can be really annoying, though. Just keep trying and maybe watch some tutorials on how to control your defenders better.

    The problem is, some games the AI does it on their own and sometimes they don’t. Super inconsistent and stupid. They shouldn’t be mirroring ball carriers or tracking runs like that to begin with

    Everytime I switch, my player stops running that direction or doesn't move for a second.. so I still end up losing the player..

    Why dont defenders mark the medium workrate striker stood on the 6 yard box to reduce cut back goals?

    Check your controller settings. There's an option to have your players carry on running or stop when player switching.
