Cheats, Tips and Strategy
Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include experimenting with formations and free kicks. As well as these hints and tips we also have a mini-guide here which goes into more details on some of the tips we have below:
New Style of Play
Pace in FIFA 20 is not as important as it was in prevous editions of the series where players were reliant on speedy wingers running up and down the sides of the pitch. FIFA 20 introduces a new slower style of play that focuses on passing and retaining possession while you wait for the openings to develop.
Experiment with Formations
It is vital that you are playing the right formation for your style of play otherwise you will find yourself struggling to play fluid football. Whether it's a traditional 4-4-2 or three at the back to focus on attacking the decision is up to you, what you should do though is experiment with the different formations available to see which one best fits the way you like to play.
Resist the temptation to start running at defenders as soon as you have possession of the ball as this it the quickest way to lose the ball. As soon as you get the ball take your finger off the sprint button and pass it around, biding your time as you wait for an opening to develop. The only time you need to sprint is when you are one-on-one with the keeper and you don't want to be caught by defenders. Check out our Dribbling Guide to find out everything you need to know about this vital skill which is used to get past opposing players.
Whip in Low Crosses
You will find that low drilled crosses along the ground from wingers are most likely to lead to goals. Heading is a lot less effective in FIFA 20 so when your winger beats his man down the sideline you will have more success if you whip the ball in across the top of the grass instead of lofting it high into the box.
Practice Free Kicks
FIFA 20 has several new free kick options on the right stick you can use, each of which is effective in the right dead ball situation. You can go for a knuckleball, add curve, or try to dip the ball. You can practive these free kicks by going to 'Skill Games' on the main menu and selecting the 'Shooting' category. Check out our Ball Control Tips and Tricks page to find out how you can maintain possession of the ball for longer.
Don't Spend Real Money
There is no reason to spend any real money in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team as it is now easier than ever to make coins from the Squad Building Challenges (SBCs).
