I’ve been asked a couple of times If I could make a finishing guide and figured why not. The guide will start in how I think before I shot, and then types of shots. Before I start I want to make it clear that I am not including long range finesse in this guide, even though they are stupid broken right now. There are 2 reasons for this:
1: I’ve scored over 300+ goals (Stats to back this up. Pic 1 – Pic 2 –Pic 3) this year and only 3-4 have been long range finesse. I’ve never enjoyed adapting my style to whatever is “meta”. Simply because it takes the fun out of the game for me. However, I don’t mind that other people do because in the end most people play to win.
2: I wouldn’t be surprised if it got nerfed soon, and I’d like this guide to be helpful for the yearly cycle.
With that said, this is some tips on how I score my goals.
Know your players strong foot and shoot in the direction that’s natural for him.
This is super straightforward. There’s no magic way in scoring goals whether they are cross body shots or the first corner. You can score shooting both ways (which you’ll see me do in many of the examples). What is important in increasing the chance of scoring is taking a shot in what would be natural for the players body position and angle.
In this example, had it been a right-footed player, I would have tried shooting in the first corner (to the right of the GK, not the left).
This example with Muriel shows what I mean. Similar position, different direction.
Last example that shows that even if the player's right footed, looking to what feels natural to his body angle is usually better.
Auto-blocking is not OP, you’re just taking a shot when you shouldn’t.
I am of the controversial opinion that autoblocking is not as broken as people say. Every single time I get I shot blocked I can always say to myself “why am I shooting, there’s a dude right there”. One of the most common mistakes people do is that they are forcing shots when you shouldn’t or taking shots towards angles that are covered.
I play a lot of Pro Clubs, and one of my friends gets himself in the same position, as in the example, all the time. Because his player is right footed, he usually tries to finesse it or shot to the right side because that would be easier, and then when it gets blocked, he complains about autoblock (which I always give him shit for).
Look for an open angle before you shoot, and if you don’t have one there’s no shame In backing out of the penalty area and trying again.
Cross body are especially effective in tight angles. The example here will include a couple of goals. The shot themselves are normal shoots.
Example– Tight angle from both sides of the pitch
Example – Cross body in front of goal
First corner shots.
Another way I score my goal. The example will include more than one goal.
Whether they are driven or low finesse shots that roll on the field, low shots are effective almost every year.
The 1v1 ball-roll
Easy way to get around the keeper in a 1v1.
While I might score many goals, I don’t consider myself to be a good finisher (playing on a different account). This is simply how I think before i shot, and how most most of my goals look like (honorable mention to the sweaty which is the easiest way to score).
While these tips work most of the time, I still have games where my opponent manages to make 15 saves, so this is not a quick fix. However with time you do get a sense on what kind of shots you can score with in different situations. I hope this will be helpful!
