Virgil van Dijk - 94 - UCL LIVE
An absolute monster
By JasonX98, 31-12-2018

Incredibly I packed this man in the PL premium upgrade SBC and this guy is simply the best defender I played in FIFA 19 so far.

I already had his 85 rated gold card and even this card was a beast together with NIF Varane in the CB.

I also played Davinson Sanchez und Bailly IF but for all of them there is no comparison to Van Dijk RTTF.

Here my first impressions after I played some games with Van Dijk RTTF.

  1. Amazing defending skills: His tackles are just unreal. He wins nearly every ball thanks to his interception and standing tackle stats. He also wins a lot of 1v1 in the air thanks to amazing header accuracy and also to his his height. If you enemy plays with weak and short players like Insigne or Mertens then Van Dijk is going to eat them all.

2. Good position game: After I played a lot of games with his NIF and Varane, one difference is that Van Dijks position game is much better than from his NIF or Varane. He's doing less fails

and is always on the right spot. If not, he is able to catch up most defenders with a good sprint speed.

3. Amazing Physique: Compared to other defenders, he feels much stronger and even safer in 1v1 duels. As I wrote in the title, thanks to 95 strength this guy is just a monster.

His stamina seems a bit low with 73, but I never had a problem and he mostly performed during the game.

All in all I'm really happy with him to got him. He is an amazing defender with great defending skills, strong physique, decent sprint speed and amazing headers. He is also very dangerous for corners, so if you're the type of players who can score them easily.. Van Dijk is ready for you.

He also has the advantage that he can get a upgrade. So if Liverpool make it to the final again, than you have a defender you can play until the end of the season.

Compared to his NIF which is already class you will see the difference... Van Dijk RTTF is a new level.

Thanks for reading!

By far the best cb in the game, he wins every Ariel ball. He makes every tackle and has a medium medium work rate and therefore he wont push up too far. He's very strong and that shows on his card with his 92 strength. He very rarely gets pushed over and people will always have to play around him.He is very expensive but I think he is worth the 111k that I payed for him. visit my channel "KLN STUDIOS" f...

The serial killer

I mean, where should i start this? This man with shadow is just the best cb ever (i play him in 250k prem squad with potm hazard and lucas in). I had 150k and i were thinking that should i go for vvd or walker, and i went for vvd, and oh boy, this guy is an absolute rock as cb, he's way better than umtiti for example. This man just has it all, even his timed finesses go in if he sometimes decides to get more attacking. Also...

You don't need any other defenders

Need a wall for your team? This is your guy. When I first saw this card I wasn't sure if he would be a good choice right before TOTS but honestly, him next to my 93 cannavaro and I feel so comfortable in defense. honestly, he is 100% worth the price and will make your team so much better. Just like in real life, he will completely revitalize your defense.
