Bicycle kicks are back in FIFA 21, and that means you can get busy embarrassing your opponent with your silky skills and deadly finishes. In this guide, we’ll teach you how to score bicycle kicks in FIFA 21.
How to Bicycle Kick in FIFA 21
|Xbox One||LT + B|
|PS4||L2 + Circle|
|Nintendo Switch||L + A|
As soon as the ball begins flying through the air towards your player, you can perform a bicycle kick by pressing LT + B on Xbox One, L2 + Circle on PS4 and L+ A on Nintendo Switch.
The tricky part about performing a bicycle kick is getting the timing right. You need to press the above button combinations when the ball is behind and above the player you’re trying to score with. The more you practice, the easier this gets, but it might take a little while to get used to.
Of course, if you try performing a bicycle kick with Ronaldo, and then try doing one with Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins, you should find that Ronaldo’s far easier to successfully execute one with.
That’s because player ratings also play a part in whether or not your player will actually score with a bicycle kick.
Self Set-Up Bicycle Kicks
If you want to really embarrass your opponent, you can also have one of your players set themselves up for it.
To self set-up bicycle kicks, begin pressing L2 and R1 (LT and RB for Xbox One, ZL and R for Switch) to begin juggling the ball with the player you’re controlling.
When you’re doing this, flick the left analog stick in the direction you’re facing. Your player should kick the ball up above their head and turn their back towards goal.
At this point, press the bicycle kick buttons we noted above and you’ll perform a bicycle kick. It’s just as effective as a normal bicycle kick, and all the more embarrassing for your opponent if you score.
Now you can get busy scoring bicycle kicks in FIFA 21. For more on the game, check out our FIFA 21 guide wiki, search for Twinfinite, or have a browse through more of our coverage below.
