Rodrigo - 88 - TOTS Wkly Objectives
3.0
Rodri - OKAY
By ctman770, 17-05-2019

I saw all of the hype over Rodri and after using him for some games in Div Rivals and WL, he's not as good as everyone is touting. I tried a number of different chem on him (artist, engine, powerhouse, maestro) and he's just not doing the same job that I had 86 SIF Thomas Partey was doing in my mid-field. He's big, but he's too slow and not agile enough to catch up to competitors' midfielders and forwards on defense, and because he's Medium workrate on offense, he doesn't help me enough upfront. Bottom line is if you're looking for a pure tank CDM only, then use Rodri. If you want a guy who is true box to box, then I cannot recommend Rodri.


Some players in the same cost bracket but better than Rodri: UCL TOTT 91 Kroos (better on offense, worse on defense), Goretzka (85/87), Thomas Partey (84/86), Thomas Delaney (84/86)

  • Stamina will last all game
  • tall, physical, strong


  • not box to box (not enough creation on offense)
  • other alternatives in La Liga and Bundesliga

Best CDM i've used so far

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 ...

Actually Decent (used of the bench)

Okay so I first finished the first two weekly challenges + odegaard so I felt like I had to get this one, and he is definitely the most useable. Rodri is a very good CDM and thats where I use him. He plays the second half usually for me coming on next to Futmas Torreira. Rodri is surprisingly able to dominate and dictate play in midfield even when coming up against people like Kante, IF fabinho, etc.

lanky streak of p??s

So this isn’t a terrible card but at this point in the game it’s not really usable. I also had 2 of the untradeable versions of this card as I did the Spainish goals objective and then packed him in the community TOTS when I got rid of my onana, so I kind of hate him for that as I couldn’t open any packs until I put one version of him in an SBC! Anyway on with the review so he doesn’t really do very much w...
