If an attacker doesn’t possess the pace to lose a defender or mis-controls the ball, allowing the defender to track back, the new
Strafe Dribbling is an alternative way to get past the back line. In
FIFA 20, the emphasis is on one-on-one battles, with those decisive
moments winning matches. This gives more technically gifted players,
such as Philippe Coutinho or Isco, who perhaps lack elite speed and
power, the chance to fully utilise their dribbling abilities. By holding
L1/LB, your player squares up to an opponent and allows you to move
side to side, tempting the defender to stick a foot in. This opens up
space to drive into and deliver a cross if out wide, or cut inside and
attempt a shot.
When attempting a shot you might not always have that yard of space needed to fire on goal. With the new set-up touch mechanic, players can
flick the ball into space using R1/RB and the analog stick, opening
themselves up to hit a vicious shot. It’s a tricky skill to get to grips
with and defenders can often steal the ball from your toe, but get it
right and your chances of hitting the target are high. It’s particularly
devastating when coupled with strafe dribbling - a two-footed attacker
like Son Heung-min can wait for his opponent to make the first move,
before nudging the ball to one side and firing the ball home.
Tackles have been revamped in FIFA 20 to counter these new attacking options. If you rely less on AI defenders and go for well-timed
challenges, you’re rewarded thanks to the reworked Active Touch system.
The cleaner the tackle you make, the more likely you are to win
possession, hopefully leading to fewer moments of the ball pinballing
around the pitch. Multiple factors impact the outcome - the angle you
challenge from, the timing and of course the player’s tackling stats.
Meaning the imperious Virgil Van Dijk will be far likelier to earn his
side the ball than the far less defensively astute Neymar.want know more
