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 more than fast enough to stop any counter attack coming your way. Put a shadow on him just to be on the safe side and he will be a rock in your midfield.
SHOOTING: Probably his weakpoint. It does say that he has 97 long shots, but it doesn't feel like it. So far he has scored som bangers, but his shooting feels a little inconsistent for me. But to be honest, not the most important stat on a player like Gustavo.
PASSING: This is something that surprised me with Luiz Gustavo. He never seems to misplace a pass. Nothing more to say really.
DRIBBLING: His actual dribbling is irrelevant for the way that I play him but his ball control and composure under pressure is amazing. My oppenents just can't seem to get the ball off him. He shields the ball away from the opposition and passes the ball immaculately on.
DEFENDING: Nothing to say, just absolutely fantastic.
PHYSICAL: Nothing to say, just absolutely fantastic.
Pace (Feels faster than 78)
Shooting (A little inconsistent)
