Block Passing and Crossing
There are times when you should go for hard pressure, and there are times when it’s best to keep distance and try to block passing or crossing lines. The best way to do this is by pressing L2 / LT (X / A also works, but it’s automatic), which will keep your player facing the ball, regardless of the directions you press. You can combine this with the help of another player on your team by pressing and holding R1 / RB, which will get your friend to try to put pressure on the ball carrier. This will allow you to position your controlled player between the ball carrier and the target.
