What can I say, this card has brought back memories of the pato we all loved back in the day. The stats are insane and he is just a brilliant player. Not many things i thought were bad and many things I thought were brilliant. Used with Sniper in 8 Div rival games in div 2
Pace - His runs off the ball and in behind the defence are brilliant as well as his runs with the ball, simply amazing
Shooting - I used a sniper to boost his dribbling and his shooting, fantastic in front of goal
Dribbling - Small, agile and quick player makes for great goals and runs.
Finesse shots - From most decent positions the ball will go in
Heading - 5'11 not all that great but he has 89 jumping so beats quite a few defenders to headers
Brazilian so offers many links
4* skills - really helps in tight situations with his agility and pace, he can break through small gaps in the defence with heel to heel flicks
Workrates - sitting at High Low he is the perfect striker
League - Not a great league but many strong links in talisca, hulk, paulinho just to name a few
Stamina - with pressing now prominent in Fifa, he can run out of stamina, but I didn't find this to be that bad of an issue
Balance - Again not to bad of an issue as it is fixed by a sniper chem style but did let me down sometimes
Passing - Not great at playing through balls to other attackers
If there is one thing I've learned so far this FIFA, it's that if you see a player SBC that you like, do it before it's gone forever. For example, POTM Lucas or Flashback Juanfran. I've been a fan of Pato since his Milan days, and I even played over 150 games with his 83 inform card so I had to do this SBC. It cost me around 170K from scratch, and it was definitely worth it!! I fit him in a squad with Aguero, De Bruyne, Flashback Sturridge, Firmino, Fernandinho, IF Sandro, Benatia, Bonucci, OTW Cancelo, and SIF Szczesny. I played Pato at RS with Sturridge at LS and Aguero at CAM in a 4-1-2-1-2 (2) in-game, and I've never used a deadlier attack force this FIFA. Compared to his 83 inform card, his attack positioning and strength are much better and he finishes the shots that might go just a bit wide on his 83 card. His insane jumping, finishing, pace, strength, and support play makes him a great complete striker. In addition, his 3-star weak foot is practically unnoticeable. Use a Marksman chem style, he doesn't need more pace, but could always use more strength, control, and shooting. Stamina will be an issue only if you use Constant Pressure as a tactic, if you use literally any thing else, he will end most 90min games with around 25-30% stamina left. Do the SBC if you have the coins, before you regret not doing it. He is easily on par or better than similar strikers of this price range and/or rating.
Finishing- literally every shot either goes in or is on target, don't be afraid to shoot across goal or set him up for ridiculous volleys/headers.
Jumping- with a Marksman chem style his jumping is 99, being 5'11", 99 jumping is enough to out jump most +6'4" defenders, even then his great positioning moves him away from defenders to get a free volley or header in the 18yard box.
Crossing- I didn't touch his crossing with a chem style, and for some reason he finds Sturridge or Aguero with a cross at least 4/5 times a games, most of which are converted for goals.
Workrates- my biggest issue with strikers this year is that they have Medium attack work rates or High attack and High defense, and they are never there to make the runs when I need them, but Pato's High/Low workrates are perfect for him, especially because he has low stamina. He stays on the last defender, while you are on defense, then he breaks away from the defender as you slide in the ground through ball.
Dribbling- like most Brazilians, he's got a flawless first touch, flair trait touches, and can turn around defenders with ease. He really makes tank-like defenders like Van Dijk and Sanchez look stupid every chance he gets it's unreal.
If you don't have the coins or the players to support him in a squad you probably won't get the most out of him.
I was so hyped when i saw the SBC so I listed my UCL Live Renato and got his card , I read some comments how he would suck but i didn't buy them cuz I'm a Milan fan i wanted this card badly and after the first 4-5 games i was so annoyed cuz he couldn't score nor assist or dribble .. after that i got a hunter on him (previously marksman) and oh boy dunno if its that or i just started to understand how to use him but ... following 9 games in div 3 he scored 20 goals and 3 assists with amazing speed and positioning , long shots come in easy with his nice curve and ls stats , has nice jumping and gets ahead of lots of defenders when i cross the ball to him , his dribble and 4 * skills are nice and the only cons is his week foot . Just GET HIM , easy to put in your team and my next striker will probably be a legend to replace him !
Speed - pace is great and with his positioning he is in front of the opposition most of the times
Work rate - H/L is great and his stamina never gets down for me
Shooting - great finishing and long shots , that high curve helps a lot
4 * skills
Dribble - great ball control and dribble on speed
Physicality - great strength and jumping combined with his heading accuracy is great
3 * week foot is a pain in the ass in some moments
Passing - you have to be careful when i try to put through balls
Shot power - at times I feel like if he had 90 or above shot power he would score even higher amount of goals , I just feel it a bit low but there is chem styles for that
