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.
