How You May Defend Better in FIFA 13


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

  • How to defend against pacey opponents
  • To defend against pace make sure you don’t pull your centre backs out of position. Never contain or secondary contain with them. Reduce space behind your defence by setting up a custom tactic, lowering pressure and setting your defence to cover.

  • How to defend against skillers
  • To defend against technical players, make sure you don’t dive in – that’s what they want you to do! Stand your ground and let the game tackle for you. Goad your opponent into doing a skill move, then tackle them when the opportunity arises. Remind yourself that you’re playing against a skiller! They are far more likely to try a spectacular goal than a simple tap in. Expect this and change your game accordingly.

  • How to defend against passing opponents
  • To defend against passing players, don’t bother pressing the ball if your opponent is passing it around in their own half. Let them do it and keep your shape. Use RB (XBox360) or R1 (PS3) to secondary contain the player on the ball and move your selected player into position to cover a pass or run.

  • Counter Attack
  • Have counter attack in your quick tactics so you can attack on the break if your opponent has pushed their players forward.

  • Radar
  • Use the radar to see where spaces are opening up and fill those gaps!
