He can score from wherever and whenever he wants. He makes his own opportunities and spaces to shoot and can outpace defenders on through balls. His finesse can curl in from anywhere and the 5-star weak foot makes it so you don't have to pay attention while shooting. If you put players around him that can give him the ball within 30 yards of goal you will score atleast 2 a game with Emilio. This card is one of the most easy and overpowered strikers ive ever used since he has everything you would want in a striker.
After playing about 600 games with OTW Ronaldo, i decided to sell him for good profit and try new players in my team. After searching for a replacement for him Butragueno came against me in the fut champs. My opponent scored 4 finesse shots against me with him so i went (after rage quitting the game) and bought this card to my team. That was one of the best decisions i have made in FIFA.
Lets start with PACE
Just by looking this card (95 acc. 93 sp), you know he is lightning fast. He is able to outpace CB:s quite easily which is really impressive in FIFA 19. There are not many players that can outran almost any CB. Thanks to his awesome dribbling stats, he can keep the pace even with ball in his foot. He felt like the fastest player i have used this year. I don't know if its the fact he is so small, but good god he is rapid.
Oh boy, his shooting... Thanks to EA sports, finesse shots are stupid good in FIFA 19 like we all know. But somehow, Butraguenos finesse shots are next-level. I'd say 8-9 out of 10 find back of the net. The curve he has in his finesses is just ridiculous. 5* wf means he can shoot exactly the same with both of his feet, and that my bros is the biggest Pro with this card. When you are inside 25m range, he is just deadly. It doesn't matter on which foot you take the shot with, it is always perfection. One thing Butragueno has that many other players lack of is his regular shots (normal shot with O). Like for example when he is through against the keeper and you take a regular shot, shape of his shot is amazing. Its like ''banana curve'' facing ground. It goes up and looks like its going over the bar, but halfway it dips like hell and goes in. Try him out and you'll see what i mean.
He can pass the ball. Now, if you use him as a CAM, his long passing can be a problem. Playing him as a ST, i didn't feel any problems with passing, probably thanks to his good short passing stat. He is not a playmaker so keep that in mind if you use him somewhere else than in ST position. Overall, his passing is good and won't cause you any major trouble.
One word, Amazing. His dribbling is probably the best i have experienced this year. When he moves, ball stays always very close to his body and it is so hard to your opponents to take it away from him. No matter what you do, ball is almost like glued to his foot. You can do very quick turns and spins that create a lot of room to operate with him. There is not a single bad word when it comes to his dribbling. Only thing that would make it even better would be 4* skills but other than that, it is perfect.
What do you except from 5'6ft striker defending wise..? Exactly, nothing. And that is what you get.
Now to the biggest con of this card. Being 5'6 and having 70 strength with marksman, you have to admit that he is weak. He's not like insigne weak, but quite close to be honest. He will get bullied by CB:s when you are shoulder to shoulder with them. Now you can get away from that with his pace & dribbling, but strength is an issue with him. Heading is also very hard with him. When you cross the ball, CB:s must be out of position or otherwise he won't win you a single header. When he gets an opportunity to head the ball, it is actually very good, but these opportunities don't come too often. 84 stamina also keeps him going al game long.
The big question here to me was that is he better than CR7 ? Well i have to say, yes and no. Overall, CR7 is better because he is complete striker. His pace, shooting and heading combined with his strength and the fact he is 6'2 make him better than butragueno. But where butra beats him are Pace and Shooting. He is faster for sure and it makes a big difference although many say that pace don't matter. It does and you'll see when you get to use Butragueno. And shooting like i said felt better than CR7. 5*wf means he has stunning shooting with both of his feet and scoring becomes very easy with this card. For my playstyle (Lot of passes and shots, not that many crosses) Butragueno was superb and i enjoyed him more than anyone else i have tried this year.
For an overall rating, i'd give him 9.4/10 (10 being players like prime ronaldo or prime Gullit)
He is really a great Player. I used most of the common or best strikers (Mbappe, CR7, Raul, All BPL Strikers) but really love him the most. He is pretty small but therefore very agile and quick. His walking routes combined with his shooting make him one of my most influential players among the last years.
I would recommend to combine him with another striker because it opes a lot of space for him and he knows how to use it. Also i would recommend to use marksman.
