Volleys not only look good but also often prove a decisive tool to have in your locker to win matches. In this guide, we’ll be talking you through how to score volleys in FIFA 21, now that crossing isn’t completely broken as it was in FIFA 20.
Scoring Volleys in FIFA 21
To volley, simply press Circle on PS4 or B on Xbox One when the ball is in the air and near to your player.
The best way of doing this is to perform a cross by pressing Square/ X into or around the edge of the box. As the ball is coming to your player, press and hold Circle/ B and use your left analog stick to aim your volley on goal. Let go of Circle/ B when you’ve got enough power on your volley.
It’s worth keeping in mind a few things when volleying in FIFA 21. The first is to put less power on it than you think. The more power you put on a volley, the more chance of you skying it high over the bar. Plus, the momentum of the ball traveling through the air already adds some power compared to a normal shot off the ground, so less power won’t necessarily mean a weak volley.
Finally, if you’re looking to complete one of the Ultimate Team objectives that requires you to score volleys, remember you cannot let the ball bounce in-between the cross and the volley. It must be first-time, otherwise you’ll perform a half-volley and it won’t count.
