How to Defend in FIFA 21

Defending is a big part of the game, and you need to have a basic understanding of how to defend your half of the field, preventing the opponent team to score.

 

Defending in FIFA has always been tricky. You can try to nick the ball from opposing attackers with standing tackles and sliding tackles, jockey strikers away from goal, or press with two players at once, but like when a pundit suggests that a defender should ‘show him down the line’, it’s easier said than done. Especially when it’s Messi.

 

With the introduction of 50/50 battles, defending is more complex than ever in this year’s game, but this guide will explain how to defend in FIFA 21.
