This man is an absolute God. I picked him up on snipe for only 90k with a Hawk card on and that is a steal considering what he is going for right now. This Mahrez card brings the fun back into FIFA. His 5* skills are fun to utilise and he feels amazing on the ball. He is THE PERFECT alternative to Messi in my opinion. He is my favourite player to use in the game. He is so fun to use. You have complete control over him, he is so agile and quick on the turn. He has the ability to change a game. His killer passing, good shooting and mad trickery can win you games. Pair him up with a deadly striker ( I use 85 Crespo) and you have a lethal partnership.
DRIBBLING. He is the second best pure dribbler in the game (only behind Messi) , and what I mean by pure dribbler is that he uses his agility, balance and ball control to manoeuvre his way through defenders. Unlike a player like CR7 that uses his pace and strength to burst through. Combine this with his 5* skills, he is a deadly dribbler. His passing is superb. He has 87 passing which just shows how deadly his passing can be. Short passes are accurate, long passing is good (I switch play alot), and crossing is deadly. His through passes are really good as the weight of his passes are sublime. He gets so many assists with his vision and through balls. His shooting is decent. It's certainly not his strongest stat, but it gets the job done. He can finish chances when given a good chance to do so as he has a high composure stat. His pace although not the best (mentioned in the cons section), it gets the job done. SInce CAMs do not really need pace, he is actually fine there.
Now although I am going to mention some downsides to Mahrez, DO NOT take these things too seriously as they do not really matter in general and as a whole when you use this card. The first downside to this card is his physical side. His stamina is pretty low and towards the end of the game he may be tired. Also, he has low strength so in one v one situations with a defender, he may get pushed off the ball easily. Besides that, although his shooting is good (8/10 I would say), sometimes he lacks abit of the clinical finishing. Lastly, if he is in a foot race with a defender like Bailly, he may be outpaced as well.
Bought him after trying out close to all rw's in the premier league. He's absolutely sensational, mainly with his top tier dribbling and 5* skill moves.
* Insanely quick, acceleration + agility
* Best dribbler that I've tried in PL so far
* 5* 4* combo
* Clinical in front of goal
* Top speed (Can be boosted quite a bit though)
Mahrez is just amazing. I played him as a cam in a 41212 (2) formation and he destroyed my opponents. I played him in behind Prime El Matador and Martial and his goals and assists were keeping up with them.
- First pro with mahrez is his dribbling. The ball really just sticks to his foot and the 5 star skills help
- Agility is on another level
- Acceleration- Mahrez doesnt look so fast but as a cam that acceleration stat is essential and he has it.
- Passing is very solid as well
- He is very good at joining the attack and can finish very well
- Long shots can be inconsistent
- He is pretty weak
Well... much better then his first inform. Used his first inform a few times but he just wasn't good. Then i used his SIF, and he was godly. I used hunter on him so his pace is really good, just cut inside and finesse, or his 4 star weak foot will still finish easily. Stays high up the pitch and wide to run at defenders from an angle so it's easy to cut inside. I would advise buying him now that he has dropped to less than 50k. it is a bargain especially for on about 15k more than his first inform.
Speed with hunter
Finesse shots cutting inside
5 star skills and 4 star weak foot
Strength on his stats i guess, but haven't actually noticed him getting pushed off the ball much.
He is a great player to be used as a CAM. I tested him in various positions, really only develop when he plays in the middle.
Dribble super well, by the way, for me is one of the best dribblers I've ever caught. He has a good speed and 5 stars, plus a lot of agility.
In numbers it really does not seem so extraordinary, but if you look at his individual performance in every game, it's incredible. I got to have 20/22 right / wrong dribbles.
It's a guy to be used as a CAM because he can dribble and make small throws in small spaces, something rare, I tested De Bruyne, Fabregas, James, in fact, several that have great passes and really he was the best.
Great ball control
Good long passes
5 dribbling stars <3
Relatively inexpensive in value for money, seeing as it costs 90k, low value compared to De Bruyne and other socks that for me, did not work.
Kick from distance is not good, but using the put kick I managed to make some goals.
Physical strength :(
