FIFA 13 Guide – Defending Tips

Posted by | FIFPlay | 5 Comments
FIFA 13 Defending
They say attack is the best form of defence, but to win FIFA 13 online and offline matches you still need to be good at defending. Here are some FIFA 13 defending tips and tricks to help you prevent conceding goals in FIFA 13:

Have the Best Defenders
Choose the best defenders with the highest overall ranking. Go through your team squad and make a selection of the best. Usually taller and faster defenders are the best, but it completely depends on your team. Don’t forget to check players on the bench and in the reserve list if you have recently had any online updates.

Best Defending Formation
Technically, there is no best formation for defending. You are the one who decides which formation fits your team and your team’s strategy, however I suggest to not go for 3 defenders, have a minimum of 4 defenders. Some people choose 5, but I personally would choose 4. If you are planning to have a solid defence and to count on counter attacks, choose midfielders with defending skills.

FIFA 13 Defending Tips
Best Move
Use the contain button the most. Tackle (long) only when you are sure that you will get the ball. Use circle button only when your feet can reach the ball.

Block the Flanks
Don’t let your opponent cross the ball near to your goal from the sides. Having a wide defence line in FIFA 13 can help prevent crosses better.

Run to catch the ball, not to catch the player. Use the spaces around the attacker to reach the ball – especially when he is running on the sides.

Sometimes you need to leave CPU (AI) to control your defenders, don’t switch to any player who is close to the ball. Try to choose one and cover the spaces with that one instead of switching players quickly. Sometimes CPU does a better job than you. Use teammate contain at the right time while you are predicting your opponent’s next move and covering the spaces.

Don’t Forget to …
Relax. Don’t rush.

Bring the keeper out of his line when needed only and on time. In a one-on-one situation, try to trick the attacker by rushing the keeper and then release him, so your opponent gets confused and can’t make a quick decision while your defenders are covering the spaces.

Get familiar with switching players using the right stick.

Switch players on time and only when it’s needed.

FIFA 13 Guides

Are you looking for some tips and tricks to beat your opponents in FIFA 13? Here are some guides and tutorials for you to follow in FIFA 13 to become a pro player:

Form the Best Team
Get the best and high-ranked players of your squad in your starting eleven. Choose the second tops for the bench. Don’t forget that FIFA 13 updates its squad database regularly from EA online database, so you need to change your starting line-up based on the latest updates. Sometimes the best players can be found in your reserve list due to real world update – as they might be injured in the real world but you can definitely use them in your FIFA 13 squad. So, check your reserved players as well after any update.

Strikers are very important. Select the ones with high skills. Tall strikers are good for scoring on crossing. Also, get the ones that have good shooting skills, in FIFA 13 shots from outside or inside the penalty box have high chance to touch the back of the net. This could be also useful if you have the attacking midfielders with good shooting skills. Try to have a combination of good headers and good shooters in your forward.

Choose the best formation that you are more comfortable with. Usually default formations of the big teams are good by default, but feel free to change your formation as many times as you want even during the game. Suggested formation is 4-3-1-2, but it completely depends on you.

Play Dynamically
Do not stick with only a method of scoring. Try to have more than five or six ways to score goals. Learn how to score a goal from a very random situation, be prepared to turn any chance to a goal scoring opportunity. Professional players can read your strategy and block your scoring tactics and strategies. You should always surprise them by coming up with a new scoring tactic.

FIFA 13 Tricks

Work on Set-pieces
Learn how to score from a free-kick directly and indirectly. A Corner kick is really a good chance to score in FIFA 13. Be prepared to score even when your corners are blocked as long as you have the ball inside the box.

Be good at dribbling, go to FIFA 13 Skills Games mode and play the interactive tutorials for dribbling. Do not forget that you don’t need to always sprint (to hold R2) when you are on the ball or even off the ball.

Things to Remember …
On crossing and corners kicks, you don’t need to hold R2 (sprint button) to do a header or to kick the ball to the goal.

Don’t send the ball too far on goal kicks, try to (long) pass the ball to your midfielders or defenders in the middle of your half using the long pass button – preferably on the sides.

No need to switch to every possible player to catch the ball for defending. Switch only to one player and be more concentrated on that one to block the free players of the attacking team that have the chance to receive the ball. Don’t worry, your teammates are controlled by CPU automatically until they catch the ball, sometimes they do a better job than you do. You can also use the contain button (R1) to control them – to send them to the attacking player.

Be good at defending. Read some FIFA 13 Defending Tips.
