Axel Witsel - 88 - FUT Birthday
Heading Beast and Gorgeous built-up play
By Invictis, 02-04-2019

First had the Plan to swap him ingame with desailly, but then i double watched the stats with anchor and as i am a player who likes cb with good built up play i sayed to myself maybe first test him as an cb and omg he is the best cb i used so far. "i tried not that much high tier defenders to be fair". With the new Meta with lot of crosses he shines so hard he is such a aerial threat its unbelivable. and then another thing i like about him i usually like a left foot defender on the left and right on the right but as he has 4* weak foot he works also so good on the left. As i mentioned earlier his built up play feels so smooth with the 4* 4* you have so much oppurtunities to pass long short it doesnt matter you can also easyly make a run till the middle with his dribbling and 4* skills.

In my oppinion he fits perfect players who like to built up slowly and use the defenders as first ball-distributor.

  • Aerial ability
  • Clean defending
  • 4*/4*
  • Insane built-up play
  • Pace he is obviously not that fast
  • Real Face (for me it is kinda a tiny problem as hes is one of 2 in my squad without "and only 1 con would be strange =D")

Surprisingly good

He was one of my favourite players at the start of fifa 19. but once I have more money, I went on to upgrade him with the likes of fabinho, makelele, ballack, keane and etc. but with winter upgrading coming, I invested in him. Stucked without any money to buy a better player, I played him the full 30 games of the weekend league and he surprised me a lot!Using 442 formation and ballack the other CM, this gu...

Witsel Upgraded

First of all i´m sorry for my bad english. But i had to write a review on this guy after he got upgraded.He`s insane, absolute Fabinho RTTF level. Shots are incredible, dribbling is really good too sometimes maybe the ball control isn´t on Neymar Level but i guess that´s normal. His Pace is insane for a CDM, he´s an absolute beast on standing tackles and his stamina is on Kante Tier. Witsel is good at passing too...

A pleasing suprise

As I bought him I thought he would be the first one to be replaced by an icon. But after a few games, I realized that he is much better than I thought he´d be. Both four stars are vital for this card just as his height is great. He seems to be everywhere on the pitch and even is agile despite being tall. Surprisingly for me, he is able to finish and score some goals too! Overall I really rate him, although he has some nega...
