First of all dybala is one of my favourite players IRL so it was obvious that i will buy him. i didnt expect that much because i already read the review below. but in my opinion he is a very good player. especially his l1-dribbling is fantastic, in my opinion one of the best in fifa18. shooting ( doesnt matter if longshot , low driven shot, finesse shot or inside the box ) is great too. in addition he has a decent passing and pace is feeling like more than 88 (no joke). all in all i am very happy with him despite his high costs ( ~700k ). all games i played so far i used hawk on him to give him some strenght, aggression and jumping. but i think playing him with hunter is not a bad choice, too. position: LF or LM mostly, sometimes ST or CAM.
- decent passing
- 3* weak foot but honestly it feels like 3.5 at least
- physicality ( for me its fine with hawk )
- price ( honestly an alessandrini is nearly the same quality for only ~ 60k )
Sooo, first of all i have to say im kinda prejudiced because Dybala is my favourite player and biggest idol IRL. But i think it doesnt matter because this card is just too good.
As you can see i used him in the squad i linked above but i changed ingame to 4-1-2-1-2 (2) and I played Dybala as the number 10.
In some games I played him as a RW where he played well but not that good like in the center attacking midfield role. If you search for a player you really want to use as a RW i would say that Dybala isnt the best choice at this position because he isnt that fast like Bale oder Lozano f.e.. But if you want to change it ingame anyway then he is the right choice. Playing him as CAM or even ST is a big positive point added to your possibilities ingame. He is very fast (especially with Hunter chem.) , his shot is very unerringly and is dribbling is the best i saw in the whole game. His passing is very good too, he can deploy his team mates with deadly passes. Most of the games i played with him were Weekend league games and i think the statistic with him shows that he is THE game changer you are searching for probably. If you are willing to pay 800+ Dybala is the best choice as a addition to your team because in comparison to the other players which cost that much, Dybala is good at everything (except physicality) while other players or strikers only stand out because of shooting or pace. Dybala is the key for an open game and because of that he is THE one for you, especially if youre WL player.
-Physicality ( except of stamina )
-(Defending) , but thats not important for him
I was very glad to see a RW Dybala, as like playing Del Piero in the CF / ST postion next to a target man and therefore never had the right spot for Dybala in my squads. Now I played him as RF in 4-3-2-1, as RW in 4-3-3 (5) and recently as RM in a 3-5-2 with Ibra / Del Piero in front and Pirlo as CAM. Naturally he's a bit wasted as RM, but still has a great impact on the game!
It took me a few matches to get used to Dybala and score / assist with him. I realized this was because I'm usually not much of a Skiller or Dribbler, just lack the skills for that, and tried to rush through with Dybala.
Once I tried to find my way into the box by dribbling and occasional turn and spin Dybala turned into AMAZING! I never saw that kind of dribbling skills on a player (that I controlled...) before. His dribbling skills, as well as his passing I have to say, really reflects the creativity and skills Dybala is showing in real life. His ball controll is superb, so he manages to keep the ball close and get into the box perfectly - unfortunately he is not very strong and get pushed away every now and then...
His passing and crossing are also great, he is able to do those creative assists that will make the difference in a match, absolute playmaker. Shooting also very good, though due to my lack of skill I did't score too many goals (I feel like I'm still getting used to him there, many times I hit the bar with a finesse or distance shot). I didn't try free kicks with him, as I have Pirlo in my squads, so I can't say anything about that.
All together for me he's totally worth the 696k I payed (on PC), especially as there are not many good right winger in Serie A...
- Creativity -> Playmaker!
- Finishing and Distance Shots
I was really hyped, when this card was released. I could finally add nainggolan to my team again and play dybala with full chemistry on RW. I paid 795k and expected a lot. To make it short: It was a huge disappointment. Dybala is a good player, yes, but not even worth half the prize in my opinion. Alessandrini IF or Lozano SIF with 8 chemistry are perfomring better in my team. He scored some nice longshots but positioned way too often in a wrong way that defenders could easily block his shots or tackle him down. Maybe he just doesnt fit in my "play-style" an he is good for other peapole but for me it was a nightmare. Sold him with 80k loss but im happy with alessandrini now again.
Strength (loses the ball in every duel)
Agression (doesnt really fight for the ball)
