In the last week we have seen the Champions League kick off again and more than ever we are seeing the importance of retaining possession and how vital it is for teams to be able to stamp their authority in a game early doors. As our punters point out, this may not have been the case for Chelsea last season but for the majority of the time, the kings of the first touch are usually the kings of Europe.
Tonight it is the turn of Barcelona and the best team in the world with the football at their feet. As our punters point out it is not just in real life that we love to see a player like Andres Iniesta take the ball down and take a sublime first touch, but also on the crtically acclaimed FIFA 13 video game title too.

If all else fails, keep possession and build it up again from the back – after all most of us wouldn’t mind being Barca for a day.
The video below shows some fantastic tips on how to take the perfect first touch when playing FIFA 13 and impress all of your friends with your newly acquired skills. With tips ranging from holding down L2 or LT to improve your first touch to simple things like keeping your head, it is a cracker and not to be missed.
