Marco Verratti - 87 - Halloween
5.0
Midfield Monster
By davyman, 30-10-2018

I was a little sceptical about this card but have had so much fun playing it. Verratti has great balance, excellent turns and isn't afraid to get stuck in. Surprisingly he wins his fair share of headers but it is his passing which really brings this card to life. The 90 stat boosts are an obvious bonus but aren't what works for it. I had previously used Rabiot in this position and have Naingo in my Seria A Squad and can honestly say I am having more fun with Verratti.

Ligue 1's answer to Kante... Just a bit weak

The squad you'll see is the in game version that I used, it was set up in a 4-2-3-1 so that every player had full chemistry, so this review isn't based on a player that isn't at his full potential. So don't worry about that. To start with, I feel like in general this player is very underused, and when he is, he's not utilized. I played Verratti with a SHADOW chemistry style as a right central midfielder wi...

Italian Kante at cdm

Brilliant playing a holding midfield role. I paired him up with Yann Mvilla. I also put hunter on him since he doesn't have the shooting stats if needed. Works hard for the team and dominates the midfield area against players like mid Vieira that I faced multiple times. I got him as an untradeable and have not felt that he is short in anything except for maybe height. However he can jump like Michael Jordan and head the bal...
