Cristiano RonaldoHow to stop or slow down Cristiano Ronaldo is critical in beating Madrid in FIFA 15. This article can help you.

Ronaldo typically plays the left wing, left midfield or striker. Understanding how to counter formations and using the right choice of player is important.

Position: Winger 

Ronaldo can use his pace on the wing to get around defenders or he can cut inside and shoot from distance. Speed, stamina, superb finishing coupled with his skill moves, is a recipe for disaster for your defense. Use formations that have very fast full-backs/wing-backs or a player that is very strong to out muscle Ronaldo.

When chasing on the wing, try to cover the cross or him cutting in to shoot [don't try to run him down]
Zonal marking is necessary

Position: Striker 

Though a natural winger, Ronaldo is even more dangerous as a striker. He is fast, has excellent vision and can finish any of his opportunities. Your ability to disrupt the midfield passing-game is the most important factor in keeping Ronaldo off the scoresheet.


Use a formation with one or two center defensive midfielders
Due to his speed, you need to be able to anticipate through balls or chips – zonal marking
Ronaldo is excellent in the air so do your best to cut out the cross, if not, try to push him out the way OR call the keeper out (ONLY if you are sure he will catch it or knock it out)
Cutting out passes from the midfield will make your life easier

How to defend effectively:

Use the right stick to change players faster
Be wary of skill moves
Risk fouls when counter-attacks are possible
Be patient! Don't rush into tackles (try to have midfielders do more of the work when possible)
Don't get a red card with a silly challenge!
