Azpilicueta: Most Underrated defender in the game
By TheBoyBen7, 24-03-2019

Azpilicueta in my opinion is the most underused and underrated CB in the game. I suspect he is often overlooked due to his height 5"11 is not big for a CB and his 71 strength isnt exactly flattering. However he is one of the fastest CBs in the game with very good acceleration which is very useful, he is incredibly cheap, considering the price of CB's like Van Dijk, Varane, Ramos etc. Despite his low strength he doesn't actually feel weak, he will of course be outstrengthed by big strikers like Diego Costa and Mandzukic but his strength is sufficient to push most attackers off the ball. His tackling is excellent, both standing and sliding. He makes interceptions all the time and he is very good on the ball when he gets it, his passing stats are very good and his composure and dribbling are good compared to most other CB's ( he does not feel as wooden as Van Dijk, Laporte, Davinson Sanchez). He does not win headers all the time but he doesnt get outright bullied in the air. He is complemetary to players like Van Dijk who are dominant in the air and very strong (I used Van Dijk alongside Azpi.) I would highly recommend him, in Premier league squads or Spanish teams. He gets strong links with De gea and Marcos Alonso and Kante and he gets orange links with spanish players like Ramos.

OP

This man is disgusting. He is just as overpowered as last year. He may not be the tallest guy, but he can out jump Lukaku. He has more than enough stamina, can play all game. What I do in FUT Champs is switch him as a CDM in game and sub on Van Tank. He is really agile, especially for a centerback. He intercepts anything on the ground and pushes people like Kane and Ronaldo off the ball with ease. He is also very good at pa...
