    Off balance shots are a lot more likely to happen if you're using a player with a low 'balance' rating. I got this with my created virtual pro in a player career mode, controlling only my pro (not the whole team). The first goal I scored, my player stumbled a bit after shooting and then the achievement unlocked when it hit the back of the net.
    This achievement will likely come naturally when playing the game, so I would not concern yourself with this achievement.

    2nd way:
    If you want this achievement quickly, create a striker with really good stats, most importantly a high finishing statistic. Then put his balance down to below 50 and stick him on any team you like. Play some matches with this team with this player up front, and you will likely score an off balance shot very quickly. If you want to make it even easier, change up the sliders in your favour, and then you'll be more likely to score when you are off balance.

    This video shows a player doing an off balance shot in a game. Kudos to: originalxtex

    pezza888Have you tried both the methods outlines in my solution? (i.e. with a virtual pro and with a custom created player?) If it still doesn't work for you I'd probably just come back to it later, as it's likely that you'll do an off balance shot by accident on the way to completing the game.

    FeartheDeer06Yeah I've tried both. It's not working.

    pezza888Hmm I'm not sure then... All I can really recommend is comig back to it later, most people get this one by accident without trying.

    I got this achievement when I gave a through pass and was one on one, I shot just before the keeper tackled me and scored. You can also get this just before a player makes a sliding on you or while he gives you a bodycheck. This one shouldn't be too hard but if you do have problems I think you can get it with a second controller or otherwise get it with a friend in a 1 vs 1 friendlies.

    Thanks to Shooterman150 (see comment) for extra information:
    If you use up your sprint bar and score you will also get the achievement
    .

    Edit: For 2 people the sprint bar method didn't work so I guess Shooterman150 just gave wrong info

    Edit:2: Shootermn 150 doesn't own the game so this info is wrong.

    SimpleSivI got this on a long shot goal. CPU gave me space so I flicked the RS to push the ball into the space. Held down RT to sprint towards the ball and took a shot.

    CPU gives you more space to play with on lower difficulty settings. Good luck!
