Player Review

Emilio Butragueño - 90 - Icon
Expected a lot, still pleasantly suprised
By gerrynwn13, 26-11-2018

Butragueno is an outstanding player. I play him at striker and he consistently scores 2 goals per game. His combination of ball control, dribbling, balance and pace lets him easily maneuver around the opposing players. His lack of height is not a problem, that being said my playstyle doesn't require any aerial ability. He finds channels and pockets of space perfectly and angles himself to take an optimal first touch. I play Pjanic at CAM and a quick one-two is usually enough to unlock a defense. Once he is through on goal all it takes is a simple push of the shoot button and it is a goal. I have found that timed finesse shots are almost a waste of time with this player. His reactions and finishing are so high that it is much more efficient to simply shoot the ball rather than use a timed shot. The most suprising aspect of this card is his passing ability. His short passes and through balls are excellent.


-Fluid, controlled, precise, dynamic, tight, etc.

-You will not be dissapointed.

-Despite his strength, his balance lets him barrel through challenges and fend off tackles.


-Flies like a bat out of hell

-Has the ability to create distance between himself and the defenders with a large touch and doesn't look back.


-Finishing is fantastic, icon factor is in full effect. Sometimes feels unfair.

-Reactions and balance let him finish while he is being dragged and pushed. Do not be scared to pop a shot.


-The weight and accuracy of his passing is sublime. His short passing and through balls are consistently perfect. Long balls are not a strength.

He is spendy.

Exceptional goalscorer

The best Striker i've used on this game so far. 69 games played 30 in WL (25 wins) 95 goals scored and 33 assists. i've used him up front on his own in a 433 and 433(4) as well as in a 41212 narrow. i rate him above every other striker i've used including C.Ronaldo Prime Larsson who partners him up top Griezmann, Prime Zola, Suarez and a few others. In terms of pure finishing and goal Output Butragueno off...

The Most Broken Card I've Ever Used

Let me set the scene. I was once a FIFA player struggling along in Division 3 of Div Rivals for as long as I could remember. Due to quite frankly extortionate FUT Champs rewards, one day a wild 87 rated Butragueno came sprinting into my price range and one-punched 87 Timo in the noggin whilst simultaneously throwing him out of my slightly above average squad. The man then single-handedly carried my sorry self into Div 2 - a...
