Lionel Messi - 94 - Normal
By ztowle10, 05-10-2018

Lionel Messi has always been a problem to use in FUT, but in FIFA 19 it seems that they have finally found a way to make him incredible. Messi, for me, finds ways to score lots of important goals. The first game I played with him I came up against someone who was much better at the game then me. However, Messi made the difference I was able to score 3 of the 3 shots I took with him. His finesse shot is virtually unstoppable. His stamina is a problem along with his physical stature. If you go to overtime the mans stamina will be gone so sprinting is not an option. I have left him in for 120 minutes and allowed him to sit in the middle of the field as strictly a passer and even without any energy left he will still drop perfect passes. I use Messi in the 4-4-1-1 formation with Suarez up top, Messi at cf, and kondogbia and tolisso as supporting cms. I would only use messi at positions where minimal aggressiveness is required and where he will be able to dribble.


Passing (incredible)

pace (decent)

defending (he will come back to win some tackles)

Simply The G.O.A.T

The little Messiah is my favourite player and in my opinion, the greatest to ever grace the football pitch with his presence. I make it my goal every FIFA to buy the best Messi I can afford and score goals that only the little magician scores in real life as a way of showing appreciation to his talents. Safe to say then I'd been saving up for this card ever since the launch of FIFA 19 and let me tell you.. he does not disap...

Absolutely beast!

I bought Messi for the Weekend League and was a bit scared about him. Will he be so good?! Whats about the strength? But i tried him at a CAM in a 433.And i can really really recommend him!! He is a absolutely beast! His shooting (finest or normal it doesnt matter) is amazing, the 4 star weak foot is important and you will see it.He scored some banger for me in the last seconds and helped me to save many point...
