Before we start, let’s go through some of the basics on passing in FIFA 20. Firstly, plan ahead your passes and make sure that you are passing the ball at a right pace or speed so that it doesn’t slow down before reaching the player. This is important in the FIFA 20 Volta mode which a bit fast-paced compared to normal matches.
Short Ground Pass
This is a common passing technique used in FIFA 20. As the name suggests, this particular technique is only to pass the ball to players who are close to you.
To initiate a short pass, just press the ball pass button and direct the ball into the direction of the player you want to pass the ball to. Also, remember to pass the football in FIFA 20 with reasonable strength. If the kick is too strong, it’ll miss the player and the opponent will have an advantage over you.
Long Ground Pass
This passing technique in FIFA 20 is to shift the game to the other side of the pitch. However, you have to be sure that a long pass will make to its destination and not to an opponent.
To make a long pass, press and hold the pass button for a little while and directing the ball towards the players you want to pass. Again, you have to be sure that the ball will get to the player you intend to have and not be intercepted by the opponent midway.

Lob pass or overhead pass is a useful technique if you are in the mood of attack or just countering the opponent’s attack. This passing technique can be used to pass the ball in a section of the ground which is less occupied by the opponent.
This can open up the opportunity for a goal. To make the Lob pass, press the throw button and choose the direction of your Lob pass. Also, keep an eye on the strength bar to make sure the ball doesn’t go too far or falls too short.
Through Ground Lob Pass
