Tackling/marking

What do we all do (PS4) when trying to read an opponent's next pass and intercept it?
Also, when blocking shots/tackling in and around the box?

If you could all give me your tips that would be great.

I had a tonne of lag at the weekend and don't know whether that had anything to do with it, but I suffered against these two things like never before.
I also couldn't get a block, tackle, interception of my own.

Cheers

    AI defending is already there..I like to defend manually but if you're struggling use R1 for extra player to defend person with the ball while you use your own to cover the pass or other players

    Thanks. I see a lot of people talking about AI defending but it seriously doesn't work for me.
    Whenever I leave it to the AI they just go through them like they're not there.

    How do you defend manually then, what do you press?

    I usually try to block normally ..like be positioned in a way that shots get deflected or blocked. But due to AI defending other defenders also block.. it's there tho ...just be better positioned. Also stay back while attacking onall defenders...cdm cover centre and agressive intercceptions helps a lot

    I use L1 & go for interceptions while my AI guards the player, usually holds the interception too if you use L1 instead of fumbling it

    You have to keep switching players to cut off all of the opponents passing options too. It works for me

    L1 is new to me. Thanks - I’ll give that a go.
    Is it holding L1 or tapping it?

    I also try to switch players with my r analog stick but it soon gets very mixed up.
    I check that it’s not moved from air-balls regularly but it hasn’t

    he means switch to his cdm and chase back while the ai defence does the work....

    Scrub pincer move

    Hold L1 down so that he can jockey & control the intercepted pass when it comes to him. Simple L1ing & closing in on someone using skill moves works too. Your player will get wider basically making the opponent run into u

    Jockey and run in circles.
    Gold 2 garanteed.

    I’ve tried that and it doesn’t seem to stick to me even when I correctly guess their movement/intercept

    So is that the reason the ball sticks to opponents feet wen you tackle them? As I don’t do it and ball hardly sticks to my feet after being tackled.
