FIFA 18: There’s a ‘glitch’ in the demo that lets you score a goal every time you shoot

EA Sports need to fix this pronto

FIFA 18 fans struggling to score may want to take a look at this.

YouTuber Ovvy has discovered that finesse shots are far too powerful in the game – making it much easier to net some incredible goals.

For those who don’t know how to do a finesse shot, simply shoot and hold down the R1 / RB button whilst aiming the left stick towards the opposition goal.

The problem this year, Ovvy explains, it that it’s much harder to miss a long shot than to score it.

“Almost all of the shots go in,” he says in the video. “Nine out of 10 – even if you play on professional or legendary they still go in.”

It’s worth saying that FIFA 18 is still very much in development and the demo version is not representative of the final product.

But for those struggling to win games, this trick could come in handy… that’s until EA Sports inevitably patch it.

Whilst we’re on the subject, FIFA 18 arrives in a couple of weeks – so it’s time to start thinking about the best deals.

As supply will outweigh demand, loads of top retailers will be vying for your business, meaning a lot of the best FIFA 18 deals can be had closer to launch on September 29.

Here we’ve pulled together the best ones – and we’ll keep updating should we spot any more.
