The glitch does not appear to have a 100% success rate but, these are the steps he shared.

  2. hold L2 or LT, Pull away from the D
  3. let go of L2 or LT, and the control stick.

From there, the CPU defender will be at your back, but you should be able to sit there and kill out the clock of a Squad Battles match.

Squad Battles is a competitive FUT mode in which you try to rack up as many wins as possible against CPU teams in a seven-day time frame. Earning more points through winning games awards higher ranks and better rewards.
