Saving penalties is tough… especially in FIFA 18. But it don’t need to be.
In fact, there’s a means of telling where the ball will go – before the opponent even kicks it.
1. It’s all in the head
The penalty taker’s head always follows the arrow on the screen.
If the arrow is moved left or right, the player’s face will follow – essentially revealing where they are going to aim.
2. Watch those corners
Most of the shots taken in a penalty usually end up in the bottom right or left corner, so that is where you should be focusing your defence.
Hardly any will go to the top corner or straight at the keeper – it’s far too risky.
3. Leap late
Penalty takers can also change direction half-way through taking a shot to throw off the keeper.
Wait until the last second before diving so you can judge where their head is facing.
