FIFA 18 has been out for a couple of weeks now and if you’re finding it a struggle, this might help.

Strangers hammering you online? Mates taking the p*** for rinsing you? Well, while we can’t help you with the scoring goal part, but we can when it comes to saving penalties.

Or rather, a FIFA master who goes by the name of Ovvy can.

The YouTuber has discovered a way to save every type of penalty on FIFA 18 - and he’s kindly shared his knowledge on an informative video.

Read the following tips careful and you might never concede another penalty on FIFA 18 again.

1. Look at the penalty taker’s head

First and foremost, you need to look at the penalty taker’s head.

When he appears to be shaping to take a penalty to his left, his head will be facing forward or slightly to the left.

And when he’s shaping to his right, his head will be turned towards the right side.


Ovvy then shows this from the view of the penalty taker by positing the arrow either side of the keeper.

Every time he aims left, the penalty taker (in this case, Sergio Aguero) looks forward. And every time he aims to the right, Aguero’s head turns to the right.

2. Wait until the last second

Ovvy then explains you move your goalkeeper by using the right analogue stick.


And because the penalty taker can change his arrow during his run-up, it’s important to wait until the very last second before moving your analogue stick and committing.

3. Prepare to dive low

The YouTuber then reveals the best way to save a penalty, in his experience, is to move either down right or down left.

It seems this is where the majority of penalty takers end up shooting on FIFA 18.


And that’s it.
