How do you counter constant pressure?

This my biggest problem in this game. I am currently in Div 4 rivals but was recently just a few points away from Div 3. I had thought about trying to complete the Coman sbc as i have already completed all the others. Even though i don't need or want coman. The problem i am now having with the majority of my matches is everyone i come up against seems to be using constant pressure from kick off to full time. I like to play quite a slow and steady passing game and try and get the ball up to my forwards to score but when i play these types of players, my players seem to turn into players who don't know what they are doing and all manner of passes i make don't reach my players ad get intercepted with ease. The only way it seems that i can counter this is by just spamming the pass button constantly, even before i even know what i am doing and hope for the best.

    Those as well as chain croquetas and step overs that turn the opponents players invisible and you can't touch them.

    Try a formation with wide players then use hug the sideline tactic and play long balls to your wingers and build up from there.

    Try to avoid short passes in or around your box as much as possible as the AI seems to easily intercept them.

    Play possession in midfield, be patient after 7 or 8 passes they have run their whole team out of position

    Wait for 5 of there players to converge on your 18 yard box and chip a ball into your midfielder or striker. Tons of space.

    Patience. And if they constantly bump right into you; quickly shield and pass (no matter where). Your opponent bumps in but as you don't have the ball he will get a card most of the times. If you do this right, your opponent loses 2 man in the first 15 minutes...

    I just played one who also abused la croqueta. I just passed it back to my keeper then when he had 4 players sprinting towards him hoofed it upfield to be 4 on 3. Was winning 3-0 after 15mins so he rage quit. I laughed.
