Player Review

Emilio Butragueño - 90 - Icon
Exceptional goalscorer
By Obii97, 29-11-2018

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 offers far more than his 1.2 Mill current Value and would reccomend to anybody that was considering buying him.


His Finishing is second to none on both feet, Inside the Box is where he shines with all types of shots, more successful than most with just a usual B shot and not as reliant on finesses despite that being his bread and butter. Outside of the box could possibly be better but isn't poor enough to bring down any sort of reccomendation. 9/10


Butragueno will constantly be a pain in an opponents side and has an uncanny skill of constantly being onside, one of the only players i've played balls to while thinking he's off for him not to be, His pace is exceptional especially over the intial few yards which makes him excellent in sharp turning and stop and starts. He will very consistently be on the end of rebounds or bounces which is very handy with current gameplay. His Dribbling and effectiveness to create a few yards and finish is as good as anyone i've encountered over the last few years and is what i would consider IF Ben yedder would be on steroids. 10/10


He's not Xavi or Iniesta but don't get it twisted simple A passes to players in a small radius are no concern for him, if you're looking for someone to carve a team open this wouldn't be my pick but for quick movement and tiki taka style play i could see him being more than suitable. 7/10


Probably the obvious downside would be his size at only 5'6 and his lack of strength which does exist but is better than expected his high balance and low centre of gravity makes him very tough to pull over and hard to take the ball off of, in comparison to Prime Henry in last fifa and his lack of balance i find Butra a lot more effective when running with ball strength wise. he won't barge anyone over but he has enough to make me question whether this was a con or a pro which should say a lot. 7/10


Decent stat wise but winning the headers would be the issue, my style has no need for headers but if you want to play down the wings and cross you're probably wanting someone like Trezeguet or Larsson if you're still looking for pace. 4/10

Expected a lot, still pleasantly suprised

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...

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...
