One of the biggest changes to FIFA 17 this year was penalties.

At the start of the year you probably found yourself frustrated on many occasions as your penalties either sailed over the bar or trickled in to the goalkeeper's arms. 

Just as you're probably getting to grips with how to actually hit the target with a penalty, a new trick has been revealed which allows your mates to find out which way you will shoot. But don't be fooled, the new technique isn't 100% effective.

In the video, YouTuber Krasi explains how a player's movement as they begin their run up indicates which way they're planning to shoot.

 

 

However, as the video mentions, the trick doesn't always work. Only if your opponent immediately pushes left or right on the analogue stick to begin their run up and sticks to that direction can you tell which way to dive.

Gamers can change direction up until the point of kicking the ball, so for all you know, your opponent could start by shooting right but actually end up going left.

Either way, still a useful tip!
