Let me start off by saying that I had extremely high hopes for this card, especially after paying 450K for the card.
I decided to run deadeye (10 chem) on this card for the sole reason of getting his curve up above 90 (because finesse shots are broken), and he has more than enough pace;)
In game I would swap to a 4-1-2-1-2 (2) and put Mbappe at right striker next to UCL Suarez, with Coutinho at CAM. The interplay between these three was phenomenal, and Mbappe's explosive pace was giving my opponents fits in the Weekend League. He was also extremely dangerous wide, abusing fake shots and heel clicks to get around defenders and get down the touchline was very effective with him. His finesse shots were also very effective, anywhere around the edge of the box, or just inside, he was lethal, especially when he used the outside of his right foot.
- The best card I have used so far in being able to abuse heel clicks and fake shots.
- His ability to stop and go also opened up lots of finesse shot opportunities around the edge of the box
- His finishing was exceptional, had no complaints really, his finesse shot was amazing, I did try to do some low driven shots across the keeper while pacing down the side and they were inconsistent, but I think that is largely because of the nerfs to low driven shots as a whole in FIFA 19.
- My favorite thing about this card was his strength in interplay, partnered with other good passing attackers, such as the ones I used (Suarez and Coutinho), Mbappe excelled. His combination of pace and skill on and off the ball made him a nightmare with Suarez and Coutinho feeding him through balls
None really, strength was nothing impressive, but he wasn't weak by any means.
