FIFA 18 Essential Tips

  • Keep the Ball Moving - When playing FIFA 18, especially against AI opponents, you should always try to keep the ball moving. Pass, pass, pass, even if you don’t really have an idea in mind. Passing the ball back or to the side is much better than dallying on the ball and losing possession. The more you pass, the greater chance you have of creating some space for an attack.
  • Sprinting is Dangerous - There is a time and a place for sprinting in FIFA 18. If you’re desperately trying to catch an attacker or there is plenty of space to run into, go for it. Sprint away. However, generally sprinting will see you lose control of the ball and you’ll become an easy target for defenders. Never sprint in a crowded area as you’ll knock the ball ahead and a defender will easily be able to dispossess you.
  • Don’t Rush Your Attack - While it’s tempting to try and break quickly by passing the ball quickly up the pitch, this doesn’t always work as you’ll find your striker received the ball in midfield without any support. If most of your team is back defending when you get possession, pass the ball around a bit before heading to far foward to make sure attackers have support around them.
  • Don’t Wildly Press Tackle - Although this might sound obvious, it’s tempting to repeatedly press the tackle button when you’re trying to win back possession. We’ve got more details in our guide on how to tackle in FIFA 18, but the simple version is that if you miss a tackle your defender is out of the game for second, leaving the attacker to run through. Positioning yourself in front of the attacker’s path is a good, safe tactic.
  • Don't be Afraid to Lower Difficulty - When you start playing a new version of FIFA it can take a while to get to grips with the changes. To start with, lower the AI difficulty so you get more time on the ball and can learn how the game plays without being too pressured.
