BOA-BOA-BOA! TENG! TENG! TENG! (Kevin-Prince Boateng)
By Stefanu17, 11-12-2018

As a AC Milan fan I did not think twice and I do the SBC in 3 minutes. He costs me 80k considering the non-tradeable items in my club. What can I say... wow.

Let's see the stats and the in-game feelings


Using the compare functions on Futbin you can see that he got all the stats balanced, very few under 80. Try to compare his with Baby Gullit and prepare to be surprised.

I put Deadeye on him, it will boost the passing stats because I use him as a CAM in a 4-1-2-1-2 narrow formation and I'm very satisfied of his in game feeling.


Pace: fast enough to play in all the mildfield position, you'll feel he's faster in game due his good positioning (boosted with the style)

Shooting: watch his goals on videos. OK you got an idea about what this guy can do. He perform the same in-game, he can takes screamers outside the box and he's good even closer the keeper, not clinical but good.

Passing and dribbling: I put the "technical" skills in the same cathegory because as CAM they got a huge weight on the final judgment. 4 skills are good, the dribbling stats could be better and this is the reason why I want to try even another style. With Deadeye he performs very well as assistman

Defending and Phisical: I read a lot of comments that blames his defending stats and some people compared him with Matuidi and say that the Frenchman is better as CDM... OF COURSE HE IS! Boateng is a offensive player, Max Allegri when he was the AC Milan manager use him as CAM and all the stats suggest it. Despite this, his defensive stats are pretty good for a player that stay in the last third of the pitch. His aggression and the tackle stats let him steal a lot of balls expecially on the first touch pressure tactics. last but not least: if you use correctly his stamina is not an issue. I got the same sensations with Kakà on Fifa 18, put low interceptions and stay in position in the player instructions and Kevin-Prince will have 50% stamina left on 70th. Use him as a CM without instructions and you'll need a spoon to collect his rests along the pitch.

Well balanced player, basically is a all-rounded offensive midfielder

No decent strong links, basically is a super-sub

best st under 5k (Mariano Díaz Mejía)
By Fritdjof, 11-12-2018

So where to start with this card. At the start of fifa when i bought this card i thought it would be a good card. but that i got was above my expectations. strong fast a good dribbler you name it, he is the perfect player for the fifa player with less coins. in his first game he banged in two and this just kept on going the next games. But sometimes, if there were good defenders like Godin and Ramos he was just dissapering. But he could still score goals. But for me he was not just a goalscorer he also got 20 assists. I know that this does not sound a lot but with my playstyle it is a lot for a striker. On my rw i used lucas that normaly run past the defenders and just put it into the box where mariano stood. and boom hes head was there. Another minus about him was his stamina in the end of games he often could not run into the box so lucas was all alone in attack.

Very optimal quality-price (Toni Kroos)
By lorezioezio69, 11-12-2018

Before doing his SBC, i had his normal card with ENGINE and was very good as sx CM in 4-3-1-2,scores some long shots and doing lot of assist. This upgrade didn't change his shots and passing,but he is more strong in defensive situations and his pace are a bit upgraded. His stamina didn't change a lot, i sub him at 75' with milinkovic-savic 86

Utterly incredible (Deadeye a must) (Juan Cuadrado)
By ucnerd, 11-12-2018

So i used his normal card and was like, meh. I snagged this card when it was first released and people probably didn't know it was dynamic as it was just 200k (PC) so i thought an ok investment either way. Oh my, was i right.


So if you compare this card to his standard you can notice there is 59 points added (86 first version), that's pretty good for an inform alone but really this stands out so much in the places you want such as passing, shooting and physical.


Now this card looks pretty good at this point but where things just get out of hand is when you add the 'deadeye' chem style. Its disgusting, he becomes a finishing god, a passing god whilst already being a pace demon and sweaty dribbler with 5 star.


He has netted me over 100 goals in 160 division rivals games, i played him at RF in a 4321.


Now his STR and STAMINA could be better, but ignore the 63 this is BS, it is more like 75.and his stamina is good until the 80 min mark.


If you don't play WL like me (time) and are happy in Div rivals (div 3 for me) then slap a +10 PYS boost on this guy for every game and with staff at 50% his stamina is then 99 and his STR is 75.


need i say more? not really, but i will finish with this...


this card is going up to an 87 next week and minimum most likely a 89 overall as Juventus should do well in the UCL


So, for right now 400k (PC) (max allocated sale price set) this is a STEAL


next week they will change the brackets and we are looking at minimum 550k


besides the potential trade profit, Use the card...he will not disappoint you now, which means in the future you will swear by him!


oh and he can tackle as well fellas.


Cheers then


Have fun guys

Gignac Award Winner (André-Pierre Gignac)
By Mpenza, 11-12-2018

So I decided to do this Gignac SBC because it looked pretty easy and in all honesty I was more interested in the packs that came with it than anything else. After doing the SBC and getting him I threw him on my bench with the thought that he probably won't play much due to his speed and 3* skills/weak foot. I was very very wrong. Somehow, I don't really remember, he managed to work his way to my starting 11 and has been an absolute beast ever since. I partner him up with another striker and two CAM's (4222) who have a lot of pace and instruct Gignac to stay forward and press the back line. I was expecting him to be as lethal as he is. yes, his pace isn't the best and he only has 3* skills and weak foot but all he does is produce for me. His finesse shots are the best I've seen in this game so far. He reminds me of a Ibra from past FIFA's. In 85 games I have 61 goals with him and 30 assists and he's now become the center piece that my offense revolves around.

  • Shooting: unmatched finesse shots (power header and finesse shot traits are huge)
  • Strength: very hard to take off the ball with 94 strength and 84 aggression
  • Passing: much better than his stats put on



  • 3* Skills: Won't be fooling too many defenders
  • 3* Weak Foot: Can be an issue for some players, just make sure he plays on the left side of the attack and he will produce
  • Stamina: I haven't noticed this being poor because he doesn't cover much of the pitch due to my instructions for him to stay forward but I can see how this can become an issue for some play styles
  • Strong Links: It may be sort of difficult to find strong links for him because he plays in the LIGA Bancomer MX, however just surround him with french players/a french Icon and you're set
