Alex Telles - No need to worry
By DisKalua, 02-01-2019

Writing this review to add to the other review by Bayern2004.


For the most part I agree with the points he has made. Telles is a player that has all the stats that really matter for a fullback.


I mostly use him on stay back while attacking in a 4-2-3-1. I play very narrow, so both of my full-backs are my only wide options. When playing out from the back I always try to involve him and send him on a run. With an Anchor he definitely is quick enough, BUT...


here I want to divide this into two things:

One: Attacking runs/ pace with the ball. He really does not seem to get past most full-backs with the ball at his feet. You have to send him through with lots of space to make his pace count without the ball. But when he does make a run they are all very intelligent.


Two: Defensive runs. Honestly I have never seen anything like it. You can send him on a run to the goalline, somehow the ball ends up with your opponent on a counter and Alex Telles will be back in his position out of nowhere. He does have the tendency to leave a player unmarked on the outside though, when your opponent passes the ball around (might be my defensive setup with the team).


To cut things short:

The rest of the stats speak for itself. Incredible stamina, defending, crossing, passing... He will simply catch anyone that tries to go behind your defensive line. One downside: He does not win every standing tackle due to his low strength, but this occasion is quite rare.


In disagreement with the other review:

As long as you hit a green timed finish he hits absolute bangers into the top right corner. I always do that when he is running towards the edge of the 18-yard-box unmarked. If you do not know how to hit them green, then I advise you to rather cross it. Even if you hit it yellow he will shoot it wide at least 90% of the time.


I recommend you use him as a corner kick taker. Hitting them beautifully. Free assists when you have OP players for corners.


Stating the obvious:

  • Stamina
  • Defending
  • Crossing

Telles BEAST

So again, another review. This time Telles UCL Live, For me he was so good in nearly every stat that matters, his pace, passing dribbling and stamina were incredible and the way he plays along with UCL Felipe with a shadow and Talisca IF is great. He is Brazilian so offer many links to good players. Used him in 17 fut champs games with an anchor.

Telles the brazil ninja

At first I have to say, that he is the best leftback I have used this year so far. I prefer him over players like Marcelo and Alex Sandro.He is an very complete leftback, who can do literally everything on the Lb-position. He did even score a screamer for me with his 75 long shots.One very similar player is Alex Sandro but I prefer Telles over him, especially because of his low Price
