Moussa Sissoko - 81 - FUT Birthday
3.5
Not worth > 80,000
By sylasony, 17-03-2018

I was a big fan of his basic card at the very beginning of FIFA18, so I decided to try him out for fun (12 games).

My expectations could have been too great as I've been using a lot of expensive cards (icons, etc.) lately as my CMs.

Nonetheless, he lacks some of the essential attributes required to be a good CM or CDM. His passing was not always accurate, particularly in speedy games, and his shooting was not reliable to the extent that I'd avoid shooting with him. My review could have been a lot nicer if the cost of this card was around 30,000-40,000, but for >80k, he's definitely not good enough.

SIF Mooy (~50k), Nainggolan (~57k), and Vidal (~57k) are much better options.


  • Pace
  • Physical (very strong, able to push anyone off the ball)
  • Jumping (with his height and jumping, I was able to win air balls pretty easily)
  • Standing tackle (his strength makes standing tackle relatively easy)
  • Through pass (gets easily cut off)
  • Shooting (inconsistent & missed easy chances)
  • Interception (compared IF Mooy who was very good at intercepting the ball, Sissoko's interception felt comparably inadequate)
  • Reaction/Turn (directional speed is undoubtedly good enough, but he's clunky in a sense that his turn & reaction wasn't good)

French CDM 2.0

In this years Fifa the coveted pace+strength+height trio in a central defensive mid role has been semi rare. The fact that this card links with french players is going to drive the price a bit as well considering he will link with the OP french attackers, and also his teammates are spurs, Notably Mr Sonaldo.

Sissoko -- the amazing RB

Yes, the title is correct. I use Sissoko as a RB. He is on 10 chem because I switch 88 Kimmich to CDM with Sissoko on RB at the beginning of the game. I use him with Shadow chem. With Shadow, he has 97 pace and 91 defending. This defending is weighed down because of his Marking and Heading accuracy. Marking may be a little down but he makes up for it with his pace. Just look at his height, jumping and stamina. He will go up...
