OMG this card is unbelievable. I have to admit that when I saw it had 71 pace I was a little bit discouraged, but I still decided to give him a try and I was surprised by how good this card is

  • Defending: He is INSANE. Specially his interceptions are out of this world. He is always trying to get the ball back and 9/10 times he will do so
  • Agility and balance: I think he is the most agile centerback I have ever tried in this fifa and I have tried pretty much anyone aside from prime icon cb´s.
  • Passing: WAY better than what I was expecting, In fact, between this and his agility and balance I think you can also play him as a CDM. It might actually be better suited for his workrates
  • Jumping: AMAZING. Despite being 6´0'' his jumping makes him beat pretty much anyone. Not always but several times.
  • Heading: He has scored many headers
  • And lastly pace. For my playstyle, 71 is more than enough considering I play him with a Shadow and also that thanks to his agility and balance he feels faster than what the stats suggest. But you might feel him a little bit slow.
  • Pace: Only if you need disgustingly fast CB´s
  • Height: but his jumping makes up for it
  • Shooting: But it is not like you are going to shoot with him
  • Sometimes he is a little too agressive and might leave a gap in defense.
  • Maybe his workrates because of that agressiveness

So basically he has no BIG cons but if you start looking for them you will find a few minor ones

Like most people, i was pretty disappointed to get Otamendi in the TOTS SBC but he has turned out to be the saving grace in my woeful defence! His tackling is spot on 99.9% of the time and his strength feels stronger than 89. He is deadly from corners (Even scored a hattrick) and will save you games. Alongside Bailly his pace dosen't affect him to me a he tackles the opponent before he is beaten. His high attacking work rat...

TOTS Otamendi Review

PACE: So lets get the most noticeable thing out of the way first, the pace on this card shows that he only has 69 acceleration and 72 sprint speed. Adding a Shadow looks like it takes it up to 84 acceleration and 82 sprint speed. First thing I did was slap a Shadow on him and in game he feels very quick and fast. I have also tried TOTS Vertonghen out and Otamendi with a shadow feels a lot faster. I think th...

Otamendi TOTS

So I packed this guy and wasn't too happy but thought "he fits in my team, might as well give him a go". By god he is a tank, he is always saving me ass when I make a mistake or when my SIF Ginter decides to be an idiot.
