The Moroccan Icon
By thenewbiee99, 01-01-2018

What is there to say. I used his regular card in the team shown (which is shown how it looks in game, obviously everyone gets 10 chem) and he was good. Not as good as the baby Ferdinand, or Boateng, or Bailly even. He was a CB I felt I used out of necessity due to my love of Alex Sandro, who I consider to be the best LB in the game bar none (including Alaba, and the 2nd version of Roberto Carlos, both of whom I have used). If you're wondering, I don't like Chiellini due to his workrates, which is probably an unpopular opinion but bare with me.


When I saw the +6 Composure upgrade, the +4 Strength and +3 Pace and Stand Tackle, I thought it would be worth trying out this new inform, especially since it was so cheap (picked him up for 58k, he's about 50k as I'm writing this review). Honestly, the best CB I've used all year, apart from baby Ferdinand and the LB Maldini on 7 chem. His positioning is amazing, can bully any attacker off the ball (apart from the 94 R9 but honestly who can even cope with him) and is great in the air defending and attacking corners. Another thing that goes unnoticed by a lot of people when considering CBs is Reactions. 84 Reactions is really very solid, saved a few goals for me in the Weekend League with timely blocks and even a goal-line clearance from a corner. On the ball, his passing is good enough for a CB, and his first touch and general ball control is exceptional for a CB, but let's be honest that doesn't really matter unless you want a David Luiz type player in a Conte-like system of 5ATB.


9.5/10 IF I'm going to be picky, he could be a bit faster. Otherwise, there's no better CB you're going to get for this kinda budget. Please try him out for your own sake, you're missing out if you don't (unless you have 2 icon CBs in which case don't bother). P.S. don't use him with a Shadow. Although it may seem tempting, the strength upgrade is much more useful than the pace upgrade since his positioning is so good.

  • Pace (if he was a bit faster he'd be elite tier, but already pretty much as fast as Bailly the God)
  • Tackling
  • Positioning/Interceptions
  • Marking
  • Reactions
  • Aerial Ability
  • INSANE Value for Money
  • Pace - listed as a con since it's the only issue I could find. If it was 80+ I'd put him on par with Desailly, Blanc, Maldini and Ferdinand all of whom I have issues playing against in the Weekend League, he does that good a job for me defensively.
  • Shooting - he's scored a few tap ins for me off corners, but his stats aren't the best. What else do you expect really.

Striker bully - Aerial threat - Complete defender
By AdanChara, 02-01-2018

This man is definitely the best CB in price, extremely overpowered.


I used his normal 84 card in my first squad and I thought he was good but needed to be more complete.

Very surprised when he had the HERO revision, purchased him and he was god already with SHADOW chem style on him, and well when he got this last SIF 87 I was stunished,

it is worth every single coin that you spend on him.

Very fast, very strong, 1,90cm 92kg, very good reactions 84 for a CB is great! Use SHADOW on him and he has 89 acceleration and 89 sprint speed with 98 defence.

Personally played against fast strikers like salah sbc 88 and if benatia is in the right position, there is no chance to get passed him, is very very very cheated this card.


Aswell, he has the perfect work rates for a CB (normal/high) keeping always the correct position.

But all that wasn´t enough, this beast has 74 in short and long passing so he can easily start up the play for counter attacks or posession play and if you make one two's with him it will surprise you, fast and strong up the pitch can be a game changer from a very back position.

As he is tall and has 86 on jumping with 92 head accuracy, he usually goes for the header in corners and does score many goals if this happens.


In conclusion, a very fast, strong and complete technical ultra defender player for just 58K, worth it dudes.

Nothing, the useful stats for a CB are almost the highest, MAYBE the stamina, but as he stays down the pitch he keeps in good condition all the match.

Just too OP
By xJeffsRevenge, 12-02-2018

I decided to try him out and see whether he's actually better than Boateng and yes he is! Compared to Boateng he's a complete CB. I played him next to Bailly and he more or less got dominated by Benatia.

  • Benatia is always perfectly positioned. It'll never happen that a striker is wide open or that Benatia rushes out of the defensive line.
  • He's quiet fast and always catches the attackers
  • There's no one he didn't push away from the ball or couldn't win a header against
  • His tackling is just op. As soon as he's near to the ball and you press circle, you got the ball.
  • His passing is always on point and he never fails to get the ball to a teammate.
  • There's no real con!
  • Maybe it's a little bit hard to link him if you don't want to use Alex Sandro or a full Calcio A squad
