David Luiz - 89 - Flashback SBC
4.5
Simply Put...a Beast
By mish009, 18-02-2019

I have been waiting for a better Premier League CB to be released and Flashback David Luiz is everything I needed. I play the 4-3-2-1 with Luiz at left CB partnered next to my newly upgraded POTM Van Dijk. Surrounding Luiz is my player pick 86 Fabino and UCL Live Telles at LB. This card is easily a top 3 Premier League CB. I usually win 20-25 games during the Weekend League and I float in and out of D1/D2 Rivals mainly due to being out teamed. This card slots right in though and allows me to play my newly acquired End of an Era 91 Petr Cech on full chem. Flashback Luiz can easily be put into the "Elite" CB conversation comparing to the likes of Prime Icons. His Pace, Defending, and Physical truly make him one of the best CBs in the game. I have tried out many CBs this year next to my POTM Van Dijk such as 87 Eder Militao, Sol Campbell, Ferdinand, Blanc, Varane, Ramos, you name it and Luiz will be holding down that left CB spot until I believe there is a more affordable option that plays and feels so amazing in game. I was able to complete this SBC for about 75k with what I had in my club, and even at his 300-350K price tag, I think he is great value for money. There really isn't another amazing CB from the Prem who can compete with him and if you are on the fence about completing David, I say go right ahead and get him done while you can. Not only have I always been a fan of David Luiz, but he has the capability of playing CDM/CM right next to my Screamer Fellaini forming an Afro duo like no other. He's quick, strong, and doesn't feel like a garbage truck while making cuts, getting back on D, and dribbling the ball. I would recommend using an Anchor (what I use) chem style over a Shadow just to boost that jumping and strength up. Although I have only played about 20-25 games with his card so far, I look forward to stopping counter attacks, sweatbands, and OP crossing with the tag team duo of Flashback David Luiz and POTM Van Dijk!

Height - 6'2 is more than acceptable

Jumping/Heading - Does a good job of heading crosses out of the box and scoring off corners

Speed - 84 Pace without a chem style is what puts him into the elite CB tier

Dribbling/Passing - 81 DRI and 81 PAS allow him to even send accurate through balls and he has great composure/reactions at the CB position (something I'm starting to value more)

Chemistry Links - Premier League and Brazilian Nationality are easily linkable



Stamina - 75 is a bit low compared to some of the newer cards that have been released that offer the height/pace combo

Work Rates - Medium Medium WR are not as ideal as Med/High or Low/High

Superb CB/CDM Hybrid

Rivals: DIV 4Weekend League: Gold 2 mostlySo my team is a complicated hybrid between Ligue 1, La liga, and Liga NOS and a week ago I had a situation where I had to find a CB with a good all-round stats because I want to switch them to CDM in game. And he has to specifically be Brazilian, because I need him to connect with Eder Militao, Thiago Silva and Alisson. At the time SIF Fabinho was the only b...
