How to defend in FIFA 16

Like I said in the previous post I will talk now about defending in FIFA 16.

In FIFA 16 all about defending is the term called ‘timing’;  and if you know exactly when to make the tackle you will become a really good player.


Benefits of jockeying

In my opinion the best option to defend is using the jockey function. You can hold L2 on PS4 and LT on Xbox One, he will remain on “his feet” more exactly will be all the time around the attacker and you can take the ball instantly when he change the direction.

1v1 or 1v2 situations

The most important thing in situations like 1v1 or 2v1 is for sure NOT DO A TACKLE and miss your opponent because he will have an huge advantage and will be alone with your goalkeeper. The best way to defend this is to jockey and when you are sure that you can take the ball just press the tackle button also if you push the opponent in a wide area will be fine too.

Strong and Fast CBs

Also an important value of this game is to use CBs with much Strength and Sprint Speed over 80. You will take the ball much easier with a powerful defender and you will force the attacker to lose the ball often. Few examples of strong defenders are: Jérôme Boateng, Sergio Ramos, Thiago silva etc.

Defending Corners

There are many options to defend a corner kick but the most efficient way to do it is to pressing the SHOOT button and this will make your player to be more aggressive when you attack the ball.

Defending a long pass

Trying to defending a long pass is also high efficient; and will have you too stopping breakaways before they can happen. You can simply press the B button on Xbox or circle on PlayStation; and get position by pushing your opponent off his line to receive the pass.
