85 - SIF
Luiz Gustavo 85
By stelmacz, 03-01-2018

Well, after dissapointing FUT Champions (G1) I came to a conclusion that I am loosing many games because playing with only one CDM causes a lot of space in the middle of a pitch. I decided to play for 2 CDMs to put more players in center. So i replaced Andre (IF 81) with Luiz Gustavo (SIF 85). For me he is perfect. He plays brillant in defence, he is strong, and has a good passing skills. I know that he has only 76 passing, but Short Passing is 86 and Long Passing is 83. Things like Free Kicks or Crossing are really irrelevant because during 15 games he made 0 crosses and free kicks with my playstyle :)

Now I will compare him to other players which I tested on this position:

  1. Andre (IF 81) - Gustavo is way better, Andre is a little bit agile, but I feel that he is much weaker than Gustavo. Also I believe because of his workrates his positioning is so much worse than Luiz.
  2. Fabinho (FUTMAS 85) - this is Gustavo's partner in the middle in my team. For me they are both on the same level in defence. The only difference is workrates which causes Fabinho to participate more in offensive actions. Also I have an impression that Fabinho is a little bit faster on the pitch.
  3. Allan (IF 83) - this player I think could be even better than Gustavo in this price. The same work rates, Allan is faster, Gustavo is stronger. Due to pace Allan gives you more options if you are loosing a game and you want to change your formation. Also Gustavo is 12cm higher which makes him better in the air. In defence there is difference between styles in this two players - Allan better stealing the ball, Gustavo prefers to tackle it. I think that in defence Gustovo is a little bit better, but flexibility makes Allan a considerable option.

At the and I would say that presence of other CDM like Fabinho make Gustavo better. I will not decide to play Gustavo as an only CDM because of his PACE. (I will choose Allan instead).

PS. He has good stats if it comes to long shots, and to be fair I scored one long shot goal, but I do not tested it many times because of my playstyle.

Outperformed every other CDM I tried.

Struggled for so long to find the 3rd midfielder to go in my squad. Tried tots Fabinho, tots Fernandinho, tots Matic, Vieira etc. Low and behold, my lord and savior tots Luiz Gustavo. Played him in a 4-3-1-2 as a left CM with Prime Rijkard and tots Goretzka alongside him. And he BY FAR out performed the other 2.PACE: Not the quickest, not the slowest. But...

SIF Gustavo review

SIF Gustavo has to be the best budget cm I’ve ever used, his mix of strength, really good tackling and insane long shots all add together to make him a must have in any Brazilian/Ligue 1 team.

Well better than prime Rijkaard

Well i've used over 40 games with him and I have to say this card is unexpected good. I packed him in the ligue 1 SBC first I was dissapointed but because i have Neymar and Casemiro i could link him easily. If you are searching for a cheap and beast CDM than this is your man.
