Triggering a timed finish is comparatively easy. All you need to do is press the “shoot” button twice instead of holding it once. The precision and timing of the second tap on the shoot button are much more important than the first as it decides the result of the contact with the ball.
It determines the trajectory and the shot power, the longer you hold the more power your shot acquires.

Once pressed, quickly press it again to perform a timed finishing.
Gauging Timed Finishing
One way to know how well you have timed your shot is by the color of the arrow on your player’s head or at the lower side of the screen above your player’s name. If the color is green, it means you have perfectly timed the shot.
