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
