Still OP or nah?
By OmidHound, 04-10-2018

I was lucky enough to pack his UCL version of the card which i can say is identical to the normal one i used before that! this review is based on combined 50+ games played with the two cards in div 5 and 4.

55 goals and 17 assists , with a hawk chem style playing ST around 350k worth of EPL players in the squad.

First thing i want to mention is that the definition of "OP" is not the same as it was in the previous installments of the game , No you can't dribble past the whole defense line , neither can Neymar , no you cant out-pace most of the fullbacks , neither can Aubamyang! so what divides this card from a normal 10k ST?


  • Positioning : dear good god! this man keeps running and running and running! creating tons of space whether for himself or the other forwards! his runs makes it so much easier to score against this crazy AI defending! other than that if a ball is rebounded in the box , guess who is always at the right place to tap it home?
  • Pace/dribbling : very quick off the mark , creates yards of space when chasing a through ball , tho defenders will catch up to him since they have 99 pace apparently , but the space is great enough to give you more than enough time for a final decision! also would like to mention he is very nimble on the ball , great first touch , amazing agility and close control, and quality movement on the ball
  • Reactions: Really? reactions? YES! REACTIONS! when a ball is loose Gabriel always seems to be the first to get to it , which with his stats means Danger anywhere near the box. i think you've noticed when you intercept the ball , some players just wont let go until the get it back! and its really annoying right? well , this is the stat that makes that happen! even when you botch a dribble , you still have a decent chance of getting away with it!
  • Shooting : not as great as fifa18 which is not something exclusive to this card , shooting system is kinda weird! deal with it, but still much better than many decent forwards i used so far (IF werner, Depay, Balotelli , Gameiro, Aspas, Lacazette, ...)
  • Stamina : you need your players to be 100% all game



So overall is he still OP? IMO yes!

worth the coins? YES! you cant get a player his quality for less that twice his price!

Is he a game changer? Well not really, He usually outshines most of his teammates but this is not a game that you can win with 1 player , so i dont suggest you buying him if you dont already have a pretty decent team.

Gabriel Jesus – The Glitch from FIFA 17 returns

Remember back in FIFA 17 – especially PS4 users – when there weren’t a million Icons available, SBC’s were something new and the only God you knew was Loïc Remy? Man, Loïc Remy was a God amongst men. 4*/4*, insane pace and strength plus back then all you had to do to score was tap the shooting button twice and shazam! A low driven would fire into the net. Those were the days.Until the day Manches...

Thanks EA you made me find it red

Found among the players choices of the WL prizes, I was initially hesitant to replace Aguero with this card, but since the WL had not yet started I decided to give him a chance in division rivals. I had 4 games, and now I wait for tomorrow afternoon to sell my Aguero. In 4 games, division 4 - 1670 skill points, 5 goals and 6 assists. Paired with Firmino FUTMAS they are simply perfect for my type of game: offensive cuts and ...

Review Gabriel Jesus (Champions)

This player touched me in a nontransferable reward, I have to say that I use it with the chemistry style HUNTER and it is a beast, it is great and everything goes to the goal, nobody surpasses him in speed, only knocking him down or missing him.All passes to the hole picks them up and finishes very wellBefore I used the gold, but I love it even ...
