Marco Reus - 92 - Headliners
5.0
This card is good
By CLane12, 28-02-2019

I initially bought this card as an investment, hoping he'd rise in price post winter rating refresh. However, sadly, his price surprisingly dropped after the refresh. This may have been due to his injury, or simply because people over invested and then panic sold, but either way I decided to use him instead of lose coins. Reading the prior review I was worried, as I thought he may have not been that good. I started playing him as a Left CAM in the 4-2-3-1, because I thought his pace would be good for a left outside mid. However, he was horrible, wasn't involved, didn't produce anything, and just felt like a waste of space. As a result, his stats were something like 12 games with 2 goals 2 assists or something terrible. I wish that I had taken a screenshot at the time, because those stats were not at all reflective of the player.


I moved reus to the central CAM spot, and all of a sudden he is a completely different player. He felt faster, stronger, and just exponentially better then that player who was out wide. REUS IS GOOD POST PATCH! Do not be fooled or tricked by prior reviews, this player is very, very good. He can shoot on either foot with power or with finesse, with 4* weak foot and 91 Shooting. He can dribble quickly and with the use of skills, with 4* skills and 91 dribbling. And, luckily, he was fast, I was just using him incorrectly. After moving him to the central CAM he now was 51 goals and 28 assists in 58 games. That after his terrible start, is exceptional.


The most important thing I can say about this card, is that if Reus gets another inform returning from injury in these coming weeks, this card will be one of the best CAMs in FIFA 19. The only issue is his stamina, which is only a minor problem, and if that stat gets an upgrade, Reus is almost a perfect CAM. This card is currently worth about 750k, and is undervalued on the market. A good investment, because one more inform will place this card near a million coins.


I am an Elite 3/Gold 1 player in division 2 with about a 2200 skill rating consistently

Pace- Fast enough to run away from defenders and a quick enough turn of pace to lose midfielders in the center of the pitch

Shooting- Unbelievable, enough said. Set pieces or open play, doesn't matter, kid can shoot

Passing- Very good at passing, not the best, but very good

Dribbling- One of his best stats, very close ball control sharp turns and can dribble at speed


The only con is his stamina. And if you play him in a wide position he may not be as productive

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...

Perfect striker

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 l...

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...
