Player Review

Ousmane Dembélé - 88 - Headliners
Great upgrade
By Richhain, 07-05-2019

I love this player on Fifa and have now used all 4 versions of him! I got the 86 IF pre ratings refresh for about 60k used him for months and 600+ games with 310 goals and then needed to upgrade and sold him for a tidy 100k. The 86 was a great card and I wasn’t sure the 88 would be worth the extra 250k coins and I considered Neymar or 89 Nedved but opted for Dembele and delighted with it. The upgrade feels like more than 2 points and his shooting & passing goes up by 3 points which you definitely notice. I have marksman on him as his pace is already insane, with this chem his finishing (96) pos (93) and power (97) with a high attacking WR and 5* WF make this card so dangerous in the box, he’s great at popping up and smashing a first time strike in with either foot. He’s amazing at dribbling as you would expect with agility (98) dribbling (99) control (92) plus acceleration (98) he’s causing all sorts of issues for my opponents out wide or in the box. Short passing now at (85) and vision at (93) give him great ability to keep a move going. Downsides are crossing which is just ok at 86 but I don’t fire load of crosses in, if you have a target man this might be a problem for you.  Long shots is 84 but I don’t take that many with him and I think the 97 shot power makes up for some of the weakness there as I haven’t noticed an issue. His composure is really low at 76 but this is a stat I am unsure about on Fifa 19 and how much difference it makes outside of strikers. Obviously his defending is pants with a low work rate and awful stats combined with low stamina means that you need to play a formation that allows him to stay forward otherwise he could be an issue. I had been thinking I would have him for a few weeks until I could afford 90 Stoichkov or 91 Nedved but I can’t see them being more effective for me so I’m going to stick with him

Downgraded from last year so I was a bit pessimistic about him this year, however he is still incredible.

Dembele review (Great Card)

After using this man at striker in a 41212 (2) as the right striker i have learned what a great and actually cheap (compared to other tots) this player really is. His speed is blistering fast and his shooting is very consistent and precise especially his finishing and shot power. I have used the likes of tots ben yedder, tots mane, tots bernando silva, regular ronaldo and messi and many more great strikers, but overall t...
