Marco Reus - 94 - Bundes POTM
5.0
Perfect striker
By zone2step, 27-01-2019

Reus is by far the best player I've used in this Fifa. This is comparing him to the likes of futmas son, prime raul and some other great players. He is definitely an endgame player, and is actually worth the money provided you don't have any of the other Reus POTM cards. I haven't tried either of his other cards, so I have no way of comparing them, but for under 1 million and a guarantee he's going to get an upgrade to at least a 92, I'd say he's worth the money.


I started off trying with at CAM and striker and interchanging between the two, but as I decided to swap from the 4-2-3-1 (2) to the 4-1-2-1-2 (2), he had to play ST, on the left to finesse across goal, as he dropped too deep into the midfield in the latter formation, as well as ran out of stamina very quickly.


Overall, I would say this card is a complete striker and that striker is the best position to play him at, but he'll still play amazingly at cam.


Almost all of these games were in WL.

High icon tier shooting - finesse meta is suited perfectly for him, but he isn't only limited to that with 95 shot power and all other shooting stats above 90.

Very quick - running, turning, shooting, skills, you name it. All of it is done ridiculously quickly. Actually feels a lot faster than 91 pace as well.

Great attacking run - the best I've had from any player all game. Seems to manage to stay in line with the defence until the last second every time.

4* 4* combo - left foot felt great, although I didn't even end up using it that much, very easy to just use his right.

Great reactions and composure - the ball will come out of his feet so fast and he is always reliable.

Great dribbling

Great passing stats for quick 1-2's - didn't struggle with the longer balls as well despite only 77 long passing.





Low aggression - he doesn't fight back for the ball and is easily pushed off.

Stamina - only an issue at cam, more than fine for ST. Hopefully getting boosted above 79 as his stamina on his rare gold has increased a lot on his H2H card.

He also has a tendency to drop back when cam in the 4-1-2-1-2 (2), leaving him out of position for attacks as he didn't push up fast enough with medium attacking work-rates, as well as draining his stamina.

God Tier (Worth Millions)

I know this card seems expensive, but wow it is good. It is always risky to pay for a POTM so early, but honestly Reus' informs past 88 rated will be a lot more expensive than this SBC (side-note: I would recommend doing the gold upgrade SBC a lot to get a high rated player, I got Godin and it saved me so much money). He is one of the most fun cards to use. I have him playing CF in a 433(5). His chance creation is solid; it...

Best CAM in Game

I got Reus in my player picks and was instantly gassed as he's by far the best IF this week. I use him at CAM in a 4-3-3 (4) an he's insane. Shooting: I've used players like Mertens, Son, Dybala, De Bruyne no one has the long shots this man has. You can power drive or finesse from anywhere in the opponents half and I guarantee it will at least test the keeper. Passing: His passing stats a...

2nd Potm (Icon) Reus

As i couldn't complete his first Potm since i didn't have the coins at that point , i did this Sbc even though its very expensive and untradable. Yes maybe its not the best value for coin wise! but with these stats on a player you're gonna use for 500+ games. i think its worth it and good god he delivered!The following review is based on 46 games with the card resulting in 48 goals and 45 assists in a 2....
