FIFA 19 is proving to be a massive hit amongst gamers, with the gameplay feeling more realistic than ever before. One thing that is noticeable this year is that it is much more difficult to score when you are one-on-one with the goalkeeper. Not only do defenders find it much easier to catch up with the attackers, but goalkeepers also seem better equipped to keep the shots out. If you are struggling, we are here to help and show you how to finish one-on-ones in FIFA 19.
How To Finish One-On-Ones In FIFA 19
Getting in behind the defence on FIFA 19 no longer guarantees you a goal. Defenders are much more adept at getting back to make vital tackles, and the shot stopping abilities of goalkeepers also seems to have improved.
For this reason, you need to be much more considered in your approach in these situations. There are a number of different ways to put the ball in the back of the net, and all of them are suited to different in-game situations. The type of shot you should use depends on the situation the attackers finds themselves in. If you choose the correct type, you will increase your chances of scoring.
YouTuber La5ty gives an excellent overview of the various shot types here, but we will give you an outline below.
If you are approaching the goal at an angle, the finesse shot is still the way to go. A finesse shot can be carried out by holding the R1/RB button while powering up your shot. You should aim the shot for the far corner.
For example, in the situation pictured below you should aim to steer the ball into the left corner. Around mid-range on the power bar should do the trick.
Chips shots also seem to be more effective in FIFA 19. In previous games it seemed almost impossible to lift the ball over the goalkeeper and into the goal, but it is more doable this year. If the goalkeeper is advancing from his line, it is possible to just dink the ball over him.
Chip shots can be executed by holding down the L1/LB button while powering up your shot. This can be useful if the opposing goalkeeper is a fair bit off his line, or closer to the goal your player can just lift it over a diving goalkeeper.
The new low driven shot is proving to be absolutely deadly in FIFA 19. This shot is most useful when approaching the goal straight on. Hold the R1+L1/RB+LB buttons, and power your shot to near maximum strength. You should also aim your shot across the goal if possible.
If executed correctly the shot should power low past the goalkeeper, leaving him with little chance from close range.
Normal shots can be useful when shooting from a tight angle, and should be aimed across the goal with between two and three bars of power.
So there you have it, the ultimate guid on how to finish one-on-ones in FIFA 19. It will take you time to get used to the various shooting styles in the game and when to use them, but once you do you should see a major improvement in your finishing ability.
