Five top tips that’ll guarantee you more goals in FIFA 17

Scoring goals in FIFA 17 is tough – largely because of all the changes EA Canada made to the FIFA formula.

That’s why we’ve pulled together three top tips to get you scorning more goals in no time.

Let’s kick off.


Formation has a much bigger impact than it did in previous games

Thankfully, there’s an easy fix… Use the 4-3-3 formation.

Yep, that’s the same setup as Barcelona’s “MSN” trio… and look how well it’s working out for them.


Now, this is a really aggressive setup, so you’ll need your three strongest strikers up front.

Put your best scorer in the middle – and the two pacier players on the wings.

You’ll need a strong CAM, someone like Paul Pogba or Luka Modric, behind them – to deliver pinpoint passes and penetrating through balls.

Oh, and don’t forget about driven shots.

To pull one off, get into the 18-yard box, hold down Circle or B to power up your shot.

Just as your player is about to hit the ball, press Circle or B again to get some power behind it.

Driven goal keeper throws and kicks

In FIFA 17, your goalkeeper can kick off a counter attack.

All you need to do is press  R1/RB to initiate a driven throw or kick.


If you use them at the right time, they’re the perfect way to catch your opponent off guard.

Don’t sprint much

Yep, you heard us. It’s the easiest way to lose the ball, yet people still do it when they’re outside the box.

Learn to dribble well at normal speed and take advantage of shielding.

Only use sprint if you’re determined to take someone on on the flanks.

Master corners and penalties 

If you’re struggling to bang them in from this set piece, just make sure you aim for the far or near post.

Don’t put the ball too close to the line as it’ll fall right into the keeper’s arms.


In penalties, you can speed and slow down your run up with R2/RT and L2/LT.

Stutter and it’ll prove much harder for your foe to guess where it’s going.

Now, go score more goals.
