When i saw this rodri card i originally thought i would never get it, as i had 88 desailly and 86 gullit as my two cdms in a 4231. However, after i got promoted in div rivals i realised that desailly is no where near good enough technically to deal with even mid-high tier attackers. Just to be sure, i bought rodri tradeable to complete the objective with. After playing around 20 games with this card and the untradeable one i now have from objectives i have to say that he feels far better than any other CDM i have used this year. If this was a hard to get or expensive card review on rodri, i'd recommend to wait until other TOTS come out as there will be better CDM players throughout the promo. However, he is really simple to get. His defending is extremely solid, putting in strong and solid challenges to block off counters and other dangerous attacks. Another massive pro is his height, standing at 6"3. This makes him able to 90% of headers, and along with his good tackling he can stretch pretty far to intercept attacks. He can even score a few goals from time to time, ironically scoring the goal that finished the untradeable objective for him. Having this card allowed me to put desailly into an 100k pack and get 100k worth of players back.
