There are many variables in the game of Fifa, especially regarding each player and the only way you will get better is to practice and get better with the players you are used to.
However, there are certain techniques that we will show you that will set you on the right path, and make the time that you practice much more effective.
– Adapting the angle & doing finesse from close range
The best way to perform the finesse to ensure the maximum chance of scoring a goal is from just inside the box, hold the finesse button and aim for the far post.
You need to ensure you are at the perfect angle in order to do this. Your body should also be pointing towards the far post too.
You should be between 4 and 10 metres away from the goal in order to pull this shot off.
– Finishing when the distance to the Goalkeeper is minimal
Get very close to the keeper and just tap the shoot button to roll it underneath him, the thought process here being that the keeper takes a long time to get to the ground to be able to make the save.
The low power ensures it goes as low as possible, whereas the minimal distance means that power has no effect but to actually raise the height of the shot.
Another way to beat the keeper at short range is to do the ball roll skill move. This will move the ball away from the keeper at the final moment and with a bit of practice in the arena you will master this move which will potentially mean a lot more goals from chances for you. Make sure you have plenty of space around you with noone who can hassle you that will stop you performing the skill move.
If you are close to the keeper, then it will never be a 100% chance of scoring, so make sure you always keep a look out for an oncoming midfielder or striker partner who can offer a short pass option who can ensure you get a more certain goal.
– Finesse shot from outside the box
Fifa 15 power shots have been replaced by Finesse shots for the distance shots from outside the box. To perform an effective finesse shot from outside the area, make sure your player has a running start
Dont hold the sprint button as you take the shot.
Dont change the direction of the analog as you shoot and aim to have 50 to 70% power when you release the shoot button.
The goals scored in this way are very spectacular and can really demoralize your opponent.
– Using skill moves to get into the right position and finish.
If you are running into a bit of a hole with players around you, your first touch can be really important and somewhat unpredictable and much harder to defend.
There is a list of skill moves that can spring an element of surprise to your opponent and put you on the front foot again if it was looking a more favourable situation for your opponent.
Or you can in one swift motion change direction as you are about to cross the ball, then change direction again to beat your man. The rapid change of direction will beat your man who expects you to cross and they will likely dive into a tackle which means you can easily escape your marker and move in towards goal.
Coming in from an angle is favourable if you have plenty of space to work into with less players around. If you can make the angle slightly better by cutting inside a bit more and aim to the far post with a low finesse shot you will have the best chance of scoring. A pass in a heavily packed area may be the wrong option, but if there is limited players in the box it may be more worthwhile to shoot.
– When to use the Chip Shot
When the ball is bouncing you should use the chip shot. If the ball is not bouncing then using the chip shot can be somewhat unpredictable and an element of luck will decide whether the shot is effective or not.
If the Goalkeeper is off his line and the ball is bouncing then your best option is to use the chip shot.
Again this is a shot type that will demoralise your opponent if playing online, so expect an aggressive opponent after scoring a goal like this. It may be a good idea to switch to counter attack and launch long high balls rather than build from the back with short passes after scoring such a goal.
