Player Review

Lars Bender - 89 - TOTS
4.5
Rock Solid CDM
By wsavery, 22-05-2018

I got bender a few days ago when I packed an untradeable TOTS Werner and I needed a strong link to link him into my team. After looking at options in my price range I grabbed him to about 120k, and wow what a bargain that is. I was lucky enough to pack prime Petit in October and naturally he has been the cornerstone of every one of my teams since, but now that I have Bender sitting next to him in my 4-2-3-1 as the second CDM, Petit feels like ancient history. At first I used a powerhouse chem style and he felt slow and clunky and I almost gave up, but then I tried him with a catalyst and he has been a tank ever since. His passing is sublime, and he makes TONS of interceptions and tackles. I had a game in the DKT where I battered a guy 6-1 and somehow without any goals or assists Bender still was MOTM. He is just an absolute beast in the midfield.

Pace, surprisingly good with the right chem style

Defending, rock solid in midfield

Dribbling, never feels clunky and moves very well

Passing, ready to start your counter with the perfect pass after making a tackle/interception

Physical, very strong and doesn't get bullied by anyone

Shooting, he doesn't tend to get into the best shooting positions for me and doesn't really bang in long shots either

3* weak foot, the only reason on of his passes will go awry is his left foot, but even then that is rare
