How to Defend Against Pace Teams in FIFA 13

 

Here are some of the tips that you should try in order to know how to defend against pace teams in FIFA 13 matches:

  • Reduce the space between the back four and your goalkeeper
  • If you find yourself up against a quick team, reduce the space between the back four and your goalkeeper. Drop your defence deeper in a number of ways. Use a custom formation with a deeper defensive line, set up a custom tactic that has your defenders play more narrow or set them to cover rather than push for offside. Drop your mentality to defensive in-game using the directional pad to bring your back four deeper.

  • Use our game play tips
  • Use team mate contain (RB) to put pressure on the player with the ball and move the player you are controlling deeper to defend against any through balls or lofted through balls over the top. Match the run of the striker and use your body to get in the way of the attacking player. Use push and pull to slow down an opponent. Don’t take any risks. Clear dangerous balls instead of trying to control them and pass out of your final third. Make sure your fastest defenders are up against fast centre forwards. Sweep with the keeper if you are sure you can get to the ball in time.
