Learn how to use Timed Finishing - The new Timed Finishing shot is mapped to the double tap shot input, it has three levels of success indicated by the color of your player icon on release. Timed Finishing is perfect for shots outside the box, and adds a little bit more power behind the ball.
Driven Shot - The Driven Shot is still an absolute beast. This year, it’s mapped to L1 + R1 + Shoot, and if you charge it up it’s pretty much a guaranteed goal at close range. This should be your go to shot for one on one situations, and is extremely useful for volleys as well.
Slow down - One of the most common mistakes that many FIFA 19 players make is to rely too heavily on the sprint button. You are likely to lose the ball while sprinting, so save it for attacking plays and goal approaches
Ground Cross - When playing against another person, use the ground cross (double press cross) to fool your opponent. Most of the time, your opponent will be expecting you to loft a cross in from up high, so ground crosses can be a great way to mix things up.
Use Tactics - FIFA 19 has the deepest tactics options in the series yet. Even if you don’t want to get to granular, heading into the dynamic tactics menu before a game and tweaking to your play style can make a huge difference.
Quick Tactics - Similarly, while playing a game, make sure to actually use the quick tactics.
Up, Up - One of the most useful tactics in FIFA 19 is pressing Up twice on the d-pad while attacking. This will get players into the box, and can make a real difference when crossing the ball.
Turn the difficulty up - If you want to get better at FIFa 19 then we recommend having the difficulty at Professional. It’ll regularly take you out of your comfort zone and make Career Mode a whole lot easier.
Learn how to switch players with the right stick - While your instinct might be to hit L1 or LB to switch player in FIFA 19, you might want to get acquainted with the right analog stick instead. You see, using L1 only switches you to the player nearest to the ball. This isn't always the best tact to use, as flicking the stick towards the player you wish to switch to is much better, and gives you a lot more options.
Get your set pieces down to a T - Getting a corner or free kick in FIFA 19 is a great opportunity to score an easy goal, if you know what you're doing that is. We reccomend heading into the appropriate training drills and getting your perfecting your technique. There's some handy tips on scoring corners in our FIFA 19 Goalscoring guide.
Use L2/LT for first touches - to avoid any heavy touches and loss of possession when receiving the ball, use L2/LT to keep the ball close.
