Mario Götze - 87 - Flashback SBC
4.5
WORLD CLASS
By CenturionChaos, 04-11-2018

WOW. What a player! He is an insane CAM/CM who has a lot of attacking presence. I have only played a few games with him (Squad Battles and Div Rivals) but he is clearly world class. Let's break this down:

PACE: Quick, but not speedy. Don't expect a Mo Salah solo run that blazes through the defense. However, you can expect incisive runs in which Gotze bursts into space.

SHOOTING: Better than the stats tell. He's no Ronaldo, but his close finishing and attack positioning come up big. He is precise and has yet to miss a sitter for me. As for 30-yard screamers, there is the off chance that they'll fly in, but don't expect it every time.

DRIBBLING: Smooth. Enough said. Hardly a stray touch that leaves him vulnerable.Those 4* skills are a nice touch as well (see what I did there?)

PASSING: I bet if I was better at FIFA, he would always have 100% accuracy. Unfortunately, I am sometimes dumb and misplace a pass. The ones he does make are perfectly weighted and slotted through on the attack.

DEFENDING: Surprisingly good. He did win several balls back up top, and his interceptions are very consistent. Don't expect any bone-crunching tackles though.

PHYSICAL: Sadly, this is somewhat of an L. The stamina is good enough for one game, but in extra time he'll be needing a sub. The strength is good enough for a CAM (but he doesn't really need it for an attacking role).

In conclusion, he is a near perfect CAM. If you need a fast counter, he'll deliver. If you want a slow buildup, he'll still deliver. The packs are a bonus as well to make back the coins you spent. It's a shame he left Bayern though.

-Pace (it's good for his role)

-Defending (surprisingly)

Pretty Good

This card is 100k, but for many people it will be cheaper if they have invested or whatever. I'm not sure I would pay full price even though I run a BL side, but I would value him at around 70K. I played about 10 Weekend League games with this card at CAM and I have to say it is really solid. He feels different than you would expect, but you can get used to his card within the first game or so. If you get him and don't like...

Worth Twice As Much As The SBC

I have had a Bundesliga squad all year and I skipped out on completing the Marco Reus POTM SBC because I figured that he will probably be getting another 2-3 TOTW'S and a TOTS. However, when I saw this Gotze SBC go live I knew I was going to complete it regardless of the price. The SBC itself ended up being fairly cheap for just about any flashback player but especially for a player of Mario's quality!
