Can't score today, need some advice

So I've been playing WL for a bit now and it seems I absolutely can't seem to score.

Usually play a 41212(2) with lots of quick passing in the buildup but I seem to run into a wall of 6 people around the box and someone manages to stick a leg in every time my players make a run inside. My longshots are either off or the GK just makes save after save. Messi stumbles on a simple tap-in after a driven pass inside. Even driven shots across the goals are always saved or go wide.

I rack up about 7-10 shots on goal per game, most in good positions inside/around the box but the finishing always fails me while on the other side my opponents of the last 3 games have scored on 9 of 11 shots they've had. It's beyond frustrating at this point, as I feel like I'm playing at least up to the level of my competition but can't seem to edge out a single win.

Even tried swapping to 4321 when facing 41212(2) as that's what I'm struggling with the most when I play the diamond as they just hit me on the counter after Messi has misplaced yet another pass and my fullbacks are always way up the pitch.

How to stop the funk?

    Turn it off. Try again later. In seasons I had it this morning. Relegated Tod Div 3. Played at tea time and won Div 3 and I'm a point off winning Div 2 with 3 games left.

    In the exact same position aha, made a similar thread earlier.

    Absolutely relate to struggling once getting to the opponents box. Seems like there's 20 men in there sometimes

    Input delay will make you miss all sorts of simple goals

    But there is delay that is caused by EA servers as well and you cannot fix that at home.

    After holding my opponent to 1 shot on goal for 85 minutes and scoring twice myself on 10 shots he obviously scored twice in 5 minutes and won via a dodgy penalty call in OT...

    It seems like people are going PTB + Auto Contain even more than usual because of the MASSIVE input delay and lag. It is the only way they know how to complete in the lag.

    And I'm back to my non-scoring way. Just pummeled some guy for 14 shots over 115 minutes, every angle possible but couldn't put more than one past his GK. He scores on after a crazy angle shot rebounded off the bar right to his other striker for the tap in and then on his second shot of the game he scored a belter with Son. Meanwhile CR7, Messi and Suarez stumble over each other inside the box, block the other's shot or just put easy chances way wide. This game is killing me at times

    Triple tap shoot

    I literally tried everything. Finesse shots, driven shots, driven pass into the box where Ronaldo somehow just stumbles over the ball, long shots from great angles, long shots from bad angles, 1v1s, power and finesse inside the box and so on. I was just out of answers by the end of the game and my opponent was unable to to anything except for 2 chances and somehow my DDG can't make a single save while his ends up with 15.

    Tough stuff

    it's understandable to me. You're complaining about cheating/exploiting, but then you're telling him to get his team under 85 to gain an advantage by exploiting the rating system.

    That's not cheating that's called preventing ea programming from taking the game out of your control. D making you lose completely diff argument

    @DonovanFan

    exploit verb (USE WELL)

    To use something in a way that helps you:
    Example: We need to make sure that we exploit our resources as fully as possible.


    It cannot apply to driven shots & not be applied to bronze benching, in fact I would argue that bronze benching would be far more on an exploit (if it actually worked)
