So this is totally on me 100% but I'm conceding them by the bucket load and its in the stupidest manner, the guys with Mbappe pacey forward are literally passing to him with the kickoff and sprinting straight through my team and I can't stop them, literally from half way line to my box = goal. I've conceded at least 8 of these in this WL. I've tried triggering offside trap to wake my defenders up, I've tried team press, and whatever player I'm controlling literally occasionally I just can't get close to him. I can sometimes break him up with a slide tackle but it feels so random whether I can actually stop him or not.
It's almost like every kick off when the other guy starts sprinting with some pace monster is a 50/50 on whether the guy is going to run through my team or not. I always manually defend, it just feels like I can't get close enough no matter what player I switch to. Any help really appreciated.
I've tried and always miss but that my go to. Slide and hope, now I'm not blaming the game, its on me to learn how to defend it but its so weird, I can still get G2 (although not this weekend) but I really need to fix this one issue, I feel its a massive flaw in my gameplay.
I've tried taking someone like Papu Gomez and chasing back but he gets pushed off the ball. Its a weird thing I do, maybe its something to do with my tactics being so high line and pressure on heavy touch or something as its only started this weekend.
I might try chasing back with him and taking one for the team if narrowing my width doesn't work.
Thanks for the tips both you guys.
I don't blame anyone who does it, I blame me for not being able to defend it lol. Elite players don't have it happen them. I just gotta defend it better. Was wondering if anyone had the same problem and found a way to deal with it.
