FIFA 18: Ways to do a Finesse Shot and Score

Jan 03,2018


As FIFA 18 fans, do you know how to do a finesse shot and score in FIFA 18?

Since it was introduced as an alternative way to shoot in FIFA, the finesse shot has become an very important part of great player’s skillset.  Its effectiveness has changed over the years, but in FIFA 18, it is more useful than it has been for the previous years.

A finesse shot will allow you to project a shot on an unreachable parts of the goal, such as the top or bottom corners. The shot, whether from close in or far away from the goal, you will often see the ball curl away from the keeper and back towards the goal, making it harder to save.

To pull off a finesse shot, you need to press the R1 / RB at the same time as pressing shoot (B/circle). The perfect timing will see the ball fly past the goalkeeper and into the back of the net. Pressing the buttons down for a longer period of time will allow you to shoot from further out or aim towards the top part of the goal.

You can also get pull off low driven finesse shots, a placed version of the already overpowered low driven shot, in FIFA 18. Simply shoot and then quickly make a standard finesse shot (R1/RB and B/circle) and your player will powerfully drive the ball into the back of the net, just with only a slight curl and precision than the normal low driven shot.
