    Duván Zapata - 88 - Headliners
    4.5
    Absolutely satisfied
    By Piwatchu, 02-02-2019

    My squad has a few reds, but mostly relatively cheap players (I get G3-2 in WL, Div 4), and I was looking to replace Immobile or try something new, and I only had 100k coins. Zapata has very attractive stats for my playstyle and he has singlehandedly won several WL games for me, despite the garbage patch that fucks up every shot. I slapped Hunter on him and can only recommend him as Immobile replacement, or to pair with an agile striker like Mertens in my case. I put him on ST (4-2-3-1).


    It's great value for money if you need a Lukaku-style Serie A dude. He also links well with Cuadrado.

    • Strength: 99 is amazing. He easily pushes away VVD and other bulky dudes. When you are about to cross to him, he makes his way to the right spot without getting stuck, unlike weaker strikers.
    • Jumping & heading: cross it to him and it's a goal (use low-driven header!). For me, he performs better than FB Ibra during normal crosses. Also on corners he is quite a beast.
    • Shooting: he doesn't have the clinical trait, but he shoots very well and has very high shot power.
    • Pace: he isn't ultra fast, so you need to give him some time to get into position. However, his posture allows him to plow through defenders easily.
    • Passing: it isn't great. He can do straight passes into open space, but nothing spectacular. On the other hand, he shouldn't pass a lot either.
    • Dribbling: he is clumsy. Not terrible, but if you can't shield the ball, he will probably lose it if you don't pass quickly. But for a guy his size it's decent.
    • Stamina: it's not terrible tbh, he can last a full game depending on your CTs. I even took him into ET a few times because his headers are winning many games. It's only a bit worse than Immobile whom I subbed out in H2.

    Zapata has made Fifa fun again

    Holy cow I absolutely love this card. I have been trying to play this game since launch and haven't had any fun with it up until now. I made a relatively cheap (400k) Seria A squad. I put a shadow chem on Zapata to upgrade his speed and heading since his shooting was already good enough. I have been avg about 2-3 goals per game with him from either headers or thunderbolt like strikes from outside the box. ...

    He makes VVD look like a child

    Tired of your Strikers getting bullied by CB like VVD, Varane?Then he is the answer to your problems he is the only striker I ever witnessed who can withstand the physical power of VVD. Beside his amazing strength, he has an amazing heading abilityif you play through your wings he is a have-to. Every cross reaching him is a goal and even if somehow the keeper saves the ball you get a second chance

    Best ST in Serie A

    I'm a lover of all types of strikers and i tried a lot of players (fast players, strong players, tall splayers, small players ecc.).In the team i used Zapata played st in a 4-3-3 offensive with messi 96 coc, papu 96 RW and Muriel LW.I can say that he is so clinical, expecially with all types of power shots but also with volleys, tap in and of course headers. I tried Vieri Prime Icon and Shearer Prima icon and ...
