Defensive Tutorial for FIFA 15

 

If you don’t take defense seriously, you are going to be beaten repeatedly. Read this section carefully and be sure to really concentrate on your defending. The main aim in FIFA 15 is to keep the ball out of the net and with a stellar defense, you may build a counter attack that will leave your opponent frustrated.

SWITCHING PLAYERS

 

Xbox Controls
Right Thumbstick + Direction

Playstation Controls
Right Thumbstick + Direction

Tip
Although this tip is somewhat controversial, we feel you should be switching players often. We recommend changing the settings from automatic to manual switching. This will allow you to switch players often and the computer will reposition the player into the right spot.

Switching defenders inside the box is not recommended because the computer tends to be less effective in high-pressure situations and manually controlling your defender is the best.

JOCKEY

FIFA 15 Gameplay Tips: Defensive Tutorial

 

Xbox Controls
Left Trigger Hold Down (+ Right Trigger for Running Jockey)

Playstation Controls
L2 Trigger Hold Down (+ R2 Trigger for Running Jockey)

Situations
Situation 1: On defense, your finger should rarely leave the jockey trigger.
Situation 2: Look to play the passing lanes and not the player with the ball.

Tip
Jockeying is the single move that will take your game to the next level.

CONTAIN DEFENSE

 

Xbox Controls
Press and Hold A Button

Playstation Controls
Press and Hold X Button

Situation
Situation: While playing on ball defense, try to continually tap the contain button. This method will drastically improve your defending and will lead to nearly equal amounts of steals as tackling

Tip
For the majority of situations, the jockey will be more effective than containing because jockeying allows you to apply more pressure.

SECONDARY PRESS

 

Xbox Controls
Press and Hold Right Bumper

Playstation Controls
Press and Hold R1 Trigger

Situation
Situation: Can be used to slow play in the corners, or if a team has only one superstar attacking player.

Tip
Never use the secondary press when being countered.

STANDING TACKLING

Xbox Controls
B Button

Playstation Controls
Circle Button

Compared to FIFA 14
The standard tackle is more effective than ever. Players are now able to hold on to the attacking players for longer with limited foul calls.

Situation
Situation 1: Ideally used inside the box.
Situation 2: In a one-on-one situation, the standing tackle is preferred to the slide tackle.

Tip
For the majority of situations, the jockey will be more effective than containing because jockeying allows you to apply more pressure.

SLIDING TACKLE

Xbox Controls
X Button

Playstation Controls
Square Button

Situation
Situation 1: When trying to intercept a pass that is one meter away from your defender.
Situation 2: Only use the sliding tackle if you are sure you can win the ball back.

Tip
Slide tackling too much is one of the biggest mistakes you can make in FIFA 15.

GOALIE CONTROLS

FIFA 15 Gameplay Tips: Defensive Tutorial

 

  • Goalie – Rushing
  •  
    Xbox Controls
    Y Button

    Playstation Controls
    Triangle Button

     
     

  • Goalie – Staying On the Line
  •  
    Xbox Controls
    Double Tap Y Button

    Playstation Controls
    Double Tap Triangle Button

     

    Tip
    An effective strategy to use during a one-on-one situation is bringing your keeper out then double tapping the Y Button / Triangle Button to have the goal keeper run backwards.
    Bring out your goalie, and your opponent may panic and slow down. When your keeper is running back, you should have bought yourself enough time for a defender to catch them and retake possession of the ball.

    1. Rodrigo, can you please make a post on custom tactics?

      I have seen in other websites that we can change the tasks of our players before a match in the team management screen but it seems this is not available for the ps3 version?

      Regards

    2. During online matches It is not unusual to find opponents whose squads are against all FIFA UT rules: very low chemistry values, bronze or silver unknow players often in wrong positions, no coach……. And They win. My squad is stucked, defenders lose all the tackles, center forwards do wrong shots……and so on.
      Why does it happens? Am I facing one of the top ranked players who wants to have fun or is there any other trick? How could they do it ?
      How could I face these situations ?
      Thanks
      Francesco
