To keep a clean sheet in FUT 13 matches isn’t impossible. Find here what you can do about it.


FIFA 13 Ultimate Team Clean Sheet Tips


Here are some of the tips that you should use in order to keep a clean sheet in your FUT 13 matches:

  • Don’t defend all the 90 minutes
  • Don’t head into a game not intending to score yourself. Inviting a team to attack for the full duration of a game will more than likely lead to a goal.

  • Use the right formation
  • 4-5-1 is a good defensive formation, whilst still giving you the opportunity to score a goal on the counter attack. Try switching to 4-5-1 formation later on in the game if you are trying to protect a lead or making sure you don’t lose.

  • Keep your team shape
  • Make sure players are in the positions they are supposed to be, especially the back four! Monitor the radar to check team shape. Use team mate contain sparingly to bring an AI defender towards the ball to add pressure or win the ball back. If you see a centre back moving out to team mate contain, let go of RB and hold RB again (R1 on PS3) to switch to another defender.

  • Use the right moves
  • Hold LT on XBOx360 or hold L2 on PS3 when defending to manually jockey the ball. Your defender will face the ball so you can control the distance of your player and react a bit quicker than using standard movement. Press B on XBox360 or Circle on PS3 to defend aerial balls. This way you will clear the ball out of danger. Trying to pass the ball out of the penalty area could lead to loss of possession and conceding a goal.

  1. This is my squad (4-2-3-1) BPL/BBVA hybrid
    ST- Aguero
    RCAM- Mata
    LCDM-Sergio Busquets
    RCDM-Xabi Alonso
    LB-Jordi Alba
    I’m comfortable with attack…I score about 3 goals every game…but I also concede at least 2 goals a game………
    I mean I’m not defensively strong I guess….
    I have about 130K…Could you please suggest Defence improvements on PC. I can make about 40 k in some time to get Ramos….or do you think there is any player on the team that is not worth his price so that I can sell him and buy someone cheaper in his position

    1. Hi.
      We think that the others players are OK.
      Usually, gamers have more problems to defend well than to attack. In your case, you can make some improvements.
      In our opinion, you should try to get Ramos. He is really good.
      Later, if you get some more coins, you can also try to get Marcelo to the LB. On the right side, if you are unhappy with Juanfran, you can try João Pereira to see if he fits better on your team.

      1. Hey again guys..this is my latest squad 4-2-3-1
        Michu TOTS(CF)
        Xabi Alanso(LCDM)
        Sergio Busquets(RCDM)
        Juao pereiro(RB)
        Casillas (GK)

        I used to use a regualar Cazorla at CF…but TOTS michu has better shooting and lesser dribbling and pace..I’m unable to decide who I have to use in that position.
