Initiating Attacking Runs in EA FC 24

Depending on the formation and tactical setup of a team, most of your AI teammates will perform their duties admirably. But, it also makes you predictable, and allows defenders to anticipate your next move and cut moves short before they can develop. Knowing when to break the lines and have teammates go on a run will solve that issue.

There are two ways to initiate attacking runs in EA FC 24, both involving the use of the L1/LB button:

  • Hold L1 while passing to a teammate, which will send the passer on a straight run to receive the ball again, completing a one-two.
  • Press L1 to direct players who the analog stick is pointing towards to make progressive runs up the field.

As is with most things in a football game, technique, position, and timing all play hugely important roles in not just playing the pass, but also receiving it in a good position to do the most damage to the opposition.

When to Initiate Attacking Runs in EA FC 24

The best time is anytime, especially when you have the ball and looking to push up the field. Of course, there comes the risk of overcommitting players to the attack, leaving gaps behind. By having multiple attacking runs, you can confuse the opponent who’s trying to read your next pass; just make sure the ball gets where it needs to be to continue the pressure.
