In the beginning I used him as a CAM, he was very efficient: scored 50 goals in 52 games (it was almost 1:1). After this I started to use him as a striker with a hunter chemistry style. I couldn't believe my eyes, what an impact, from this moment he was super fast (not so fast as mane or other players, but fast enough). After 145 games he scored 154 goals! You can literally shoot from anywhere with him, his finishing and long shots are amazing. In game I change my formation to 4-1-2-1-2 (2)
Amazing finishing skills
I did the Del Piero SBC a couple of months ago. 226 games and 464 goals later I decides to write my first ever review.
I have used a lot of good players, especially strikers, but I like Del Piero the most. He scores on almost every opportunity and it doesn't matter which foot he uses thanks to his 5 star weak foot. I tried Thierry Henry on loan and yes, he was incredible, but Del Piero SBC costs around two million less to do, and I think he's worth every penny.
I use the hunter chemistry style simply because he needs a little bit more pace than 83. With hunter-card he gets 96 pace, 99 acceleration and 93 sprint speed. I know everyone doesn't believe in these chemistry styles and their numbers etc, but Del Piero is incredibly fast both with and without the ball. I recommend to use the hunter-style, because not only will he be extremely fast but he will score on almost every oppurtunity too.
This is where he surprised me a little bit. Of course I expected him to be clinical with 92 shooting, but he just can't miss. It doesn't matter if you shoot from distance or in the penalty area, left or right foot, he will shoot with such a crazy precision. And he shoots hard too, and every type av shot works.
You won't find many strikers with 89 passing. I know many uses Del Piero in a CAM-position, and I can understand why. He's got 241 assist for my club in 226 games from a striker position. Most of the games are in Squad Battle or online divisions so it's not that crazy, but trust me, he can pass the ball like a elite midfielder.
4 star skills and high rated on everything except balance. He is amazing with the ball, great touches with both feet and runs with the ball close to his body.
For a striker I think he's alright when it comes to defending. He can win the boll, much because of his pace of course. But yeah, nothing special. Neither good or bad.
This is where Del Piero lacks a bit. He's not the tallest (174cm) and the physical stats are not great either. The stamina is okey (82) but other than that he can be pushed away quite easily if you play against strong defenders. And he's not a threat in the air because of his height and jumping. I recommend to use a taller forward next to him, if you play with two forwards. But are you worried that he physically isn't great, you shouldn't, because the up side (pace, scoring, passing, dribbling) are so amazing that you could ignore his physical stats.
Del Piero is just a goal machine who will score goals for you. But not only will he score goals, he can pass and dribble the ball and is very fun to play with. I recommend everyone to buy this card if you can afford it.
Pace (use a hunter card and he will run away from almost everyone)
5 star weak foot
Del Piero might just be the best player i've ever used in fifa. His Long shots, in my opinion are his greatest asset. This beautiful man can score from anywhere due to his 5 star weak-foot. In order to get him I traded in Rui Costa, who was great but lacked the true finishing to be elite. Del P will finish everything, legit everything.
5 Star W/F
4 Star Skills
Stamina can become an issue in extra time
Absolutely amazing as a CAM. Traded in SBC Rui Costa and don't regret at all. He makes perfect runs, can shoot from most places, inside and outside the box, and has great vision for making key passes.
As a striker, I found his speed to be problematic, often got outpaced and is easily pushed off the ball. Personally I switched him back to CAM after 10 games at ST because his perfomance varies so much in the two positions.
NOTE: Personally I DO NOT recommend Del Piero unless you are experienced at using low strength / high dribbling players:
Del piero can change directions extremely quickly due to his agility and precision dribbling can be used without skill moves no problem. His play style is best described as slow build up with lots of passing, you can make runs with him but its not the most effective way to use him. Shielding the ball has limited use against defenders due to his strength, he will get knocked over if you try and protect the ball with him, instead try and turn the defender before he closes the gap.
In terms of shooting, he is the best card I've used so far for long shots, both power and finesse, he can score easily from outside the penalty box. Low driven and close range finesse shots are just as effective with him due to his composure in front of goal however it is important to note long range shooting is easily his biggest strength.
Heading is underwhelming, not that this is unexpected. Free kicks are pin point accurate, easily better than 90 Gullit and 93 Henry who I have also used in the same team as him.
Overall Prime Icon Del Piero is a brilliant CAM or CF, however should not be treated as a high strength attacker as he just isn't.
Dribbling ability allows him to walk through even the best of defenses
Incredible long shots
Insane finesse long shots
Great at CAM due to passing stat
Pace - Not that this is too relevant when played at CAM, do not recommend at ST
Cost - Obviously he is a 92 rated Prime Icon, so he is expensive, currently he is my second favourite out of the SBC icons after Prime Henry.
Strength - Probably his biggest weakness, I would only recommend Del Piero to experienced players who are capable of using high dribbling / low strength players.
Oh Bella, where do I Start? I made Prime DP @ toty Crash and spent like 700k cause I got a lot of Cards in my Club to trade-in. And Ive Never regret it. This guy is unbalievable. He will Score from everywhere. His 5 Star WF is a blessing & Paired with a Hunter Chem = BEASTMODE . He does it all! This Card is the best Ive ever used. Insane dribbling, top class finishing, unbelievable longshots, Crazy passing and a lot of fun.
- crazy freekicks
