All i'm facing now and can't score. What's the best thing to do to score against people who defend like this?


Had the same problem last year :D

    Pass around them probably the easiest. I don't really get it when someone asks how to defend everyone says don't contain and auto defend use jockey. Then everyone says they can beat jockey but can't beat contain so who knows.

    Beat Contain: 1-2s, passing it back


    Beat AI defending/park the bus: get the ball forward quickly so the defence can't get set. If the defence is already set try crosses or look for open players that are in space. The AI doesn't automatically close down so your opponent will have to close down crosses and long shots himself.

    Ok set tactic to counter - let them have the ball and commit men forward when you see the opportunity steal it back and hit them hard with quick 1-2 works every time as they pull there defence apart when they don't have 11 men behind the ball - never failed me yet

    Passing and patience.

    This year, if you pass around enough, you will create gaps. Some players will exploit them gaps and then you will score goals and win games easier.

  • you can't wait, you just lose the ball to second man pressing from behind, the player they actually controll. They just let the AI controll the cbs until you have no space anymore and you lose possession. That's what happens in high end divisions. Boring AI defence ultrapressing counter attack 1-0 or 1-1 or 0-0. You can score from longshots (20%), corners (40%) or lucky bounces (40%).

    If they're just letting the CPU defend for them it's longshot city

    Yea if they're just letting AI defend then longshots/crosses. If you play someone who's actually decent an is doing the same thing I find it difficult to break them down too.

    When the opponent is containing the AI don't normally put a tackle in unless you're running right at them. Try running beside them/down the line & then cut back the ball inside. Sweaty goals all over

    I just can't get any space, there's one containing/jockeying or whatever then one running at me, they cut out every pass and i can't do any skill moves or dribbling past them cause they just automatically stick out a leg or something and get it off me

    Yup, I've found the AI only makes a tackle/challenge when you're running. If you simply jog/walk with the ball, they'll just try to contain allowing you find a team mate with a pass.

    Sometimes walking works but doesn't work against the better players

    It's even more infuriating when one of their midfielders (usually Kante or Sanches) is chasing you as that's who they're controlling at the time. So you've got that pressure along with the brick wall defenders.

    Get the the box then shield then scoop turn then driven accross body shot. Rinse and repeat. PTB left for dead.

    Yup. You get away from Kante or Sanches and their CPU defender uses extendo legs and knicks it off you
