Penalties are all about ball placement and accuracy. The accuracy of your shot depends on how long the left analog stick is held while charging up the shot. To make sure my shot is always on target, I hold left stick toward one corner while I am charging up the shot. Once the shot has been charged up, I let go of the left stick and then right before he makes contact with the ball, I move the left stick again in the same direction as before and hold it. This works every time. Make sure you charge up the shot while in the green otherwise your player will likely trip on the shot.
The amount of power on the penalty kick depends on which type of shot is being used. For power shots I usually hold the shoot button down until the meter is 3/4 or more full. This is ESSENTIAL because the more the meter is filled, the farther away the shot will go from the goalie and the more it will head toward the corner. Using a Finesse shot takes less shot power because it is primarily focused on accuracy. Filling up the meter less than 1/2 way works well. Chip shots usually require just lightly tapping the shoot button.
There are three basic ways to taking a penalty kick: the power shot, finesse shot and chip shot.
Power shot- press B
Finesse shot- Hold RB and press B
Chip shot- Hold LB and press B
