Passing Tips for FIFA 20 will help you to improve at the game and keep better possession of the ball. Not only this, it will help you to play more penetrative passes, better through balls as well as helping you build out of possession from the back, which is something that many modern day football coaches want to promote including some of the finest coaches in the world including Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Marcelo Bielsa.

Basic Passing Tips

At the start of FIFA 20 you want to keep your passing simple. Get used to the basic functions of passing mechanics within the game. Don’t run before you can walk and all that.

Keep your passing options simple and move the ball quickly, facing the right way with your player before you play the ball (if you can). This will make your passes more accurate and will enable your players to receive the ball much easier, hence making keeping possession of the ball easier also.

A crucial tip we offer is that you begin to use the driven pass mechanic (see above if unsure of controls) as this will help you to capitalise on gaps made in your opposition defence.

If you like wing play and getting your players in behind the defence then make sure you have good passers of the ball at full back and utilise the threaded through ball to your advantage.

Use these basic passing tips to get you started on FIFA 20 and if you want to improve your game even further then see our guides that have our premium tips for FIFA 20 in them and are available to purchase upon release of the game. Good luck.
