FIFA 13 Skill Moves Tutorial

At multiple instances in the game, you will need to dribble past your opponents to get the ball across. Whether you’re a slow-game enthusiast or you’re into fast-paced plays, you’ll need to beat players through dribbling across them. There can be a lot of circumstances where you’re needed to be good with those feet in order to set your plays straight and win the game.

Burst Away
You can perform the Burst Away move to defeat any defender whenever the game play has slowed down, and the ball is in your feet. In these situations, you invite the defender to advance towards you, and just before they reach you, go ahead and burst forwards in the left or right direction, but diagonally.

This depends on your timing as well, since you will be using the defender’s opponent against them, which will allow you to quickly get past them easily.

Stop And Go
This is another dribbling move in which you will run through with the ball at your feet and then you come to a complete stop just before the defender comes towards you. You can do this by holding LB or L1 before you run towards the direction you were previously heading towards.

This will make your opponent stop when you stop and it will break their momentum, and they’ll expect you to turn away or pass the ball.

Double Turn
Use this when you’re facing a defender you trying to track you from a parallel position in the play, especially when you need to shake him off so that you can get a cross in, or head in by yourself.

In such a situation, slow down a bit instead of sprinting, push your joystick towards the left or the opposite of where you were heading, and then direct it back towards your intended direction.

The defender usually reacts by edging off towards the first turn and losing momentum, and thus the time to react to your double turn.

Face-Up Dribble Spin
This is relatively more complex to execute as compared to all the other dribbling tactics.

You will have to do this when you have the goal posts at your back and the defender’s moving towards you. Go ahead and hold down LT or L2 which will allow you to begin with the slow dribbling.

This will allow you to get more control over the ball, and just before the defenders gets into touching distance with you, you will need to hold down RT/R2 which will allow you to spin your player around.

Next thing you’ll need to do is hit your joystick rightwards or leftwards of the incoming defender but in the diagonal direction, which will allow you to sprint through the gap. Though you will need to practice this particular tactic a couple of times
