Giacomo Bonaventura - 87 - Carniball SBC
5.0
Great CM for offensive teams
By gouasmi, 12-03-2019

Really cheap, done it with only 40k with some untradables, so even if you don't need him right now, go for him !! and if you're not a grinding fan like me, don't do it, Emre Can is not that good of a card to bleed your nerves to death.


Instead, you've got a more defensive serie A KDB who can do absolutly everything on the pich.


So, you've got to ask yourself the right questions :


What is my playstyle ?


What do i want my CMs/CDM be good at ?


Do they have to be a 90+ Defenders ?


How can i link my defense players to the forwards ones without too much risk of missing the pass ?


The answers to those questions were pretty easy for me, i scored 6 goals (one of them is a direct corner kick) and assisted with him 5 times in 12 games, and im playing him as a CDM with anchor !!


I put Anchor for a little pace boost, even though you can put Sentinel for better defensive stats as 81 pace is enough for a CM/CDM, didn't test him yet with that.


He feels great with the ball, you feel free to do whatever the hell you want with the ball at his feet, a great freekick taker, his power freekicks are somehow insane even with only 82 Accuracy.


And it's like he's got the right amount of a stat, in every single category


Really recommand him, but then, again, like every non icon player, it depends on you mindset.

  • With 2444 in game stats with anchor (and potentialy 2449 with others), he's one of the highest rated all-around CM in the game, can be compared to icons.


  • Great FK Taker.


  • Great passes, really good dribbles.


  • A long shot taker.


  • Even with his workrates (High/Medium), he's pretty much never out of position.


  • You live 2 years longer for not grinding for Can.


  • Kinda weak in physicality don't depend on that, even though he does the job.


  • Not the Best in defense, but the again, he does the job, best to play him alongside a good defensive minded CDM.

Giocamo Bonaventura

I will give a very honest review on this player who I have played with a lot in the last fifas . I had 70k in my club and a few untradables and I needed a seria midfielder. when this guy came out I knew that I had to do him and he did not let me down. he is a great box to box midfielder. he can play CAM , CM or even at CDM with a sentinel . he feels very smooth on the ball and has amazing passing

Nainggolan is much better

I sold my UEL Fabian to get this guy. I disliked Fabian because of his stam and he fact that he was mostly invisible. Bonaventura was pretty cheap for me, cost like 45k-ish with untrads that I had. I felt like I needed something different. I play him left cm in a 4312. He was completely invisible. He was good to some regards like his pace, his shooting and and his dribbling but his passing just wasn't as good as I expected...
