Oscar is an ideal CAM for any team, quick, great dribbling, great shooting ( especially long shots and finesse) and his short and long passing are incredible, can make assists and through balls all day.
My only issue with Oscar is the 140k it cost to do the SBC, if you have coins to burn then go for it, he's really good!
Passing, passing, shooting and passing!!
Nation links will in hybrids
Strength.......and cost to get him??
After thinking a lot between Renato Augusto and Oscar, I brought this monster to my club and I did not regret it.
PACE: He is fast enough for MEI, but as the other stats were already enough for that position, I put hunter in this card. Great decision. I feel he has more than 95 of pace when he boots and table with the Flashback Pato.
SHOOTING: Finesse is goal, simple as that.
PASSING: Good enough. I wonder if it would have been better if I had put Maestro in the place of Hunter.
DRIBBLING: Good ball control. His dribbles have to be clean, because if you hit the defender, lose in the strenght.
DEFENDING: Just don't.
PHYSICAL: Feels like Sterling in strenght. Stamina is quite good if you don't play the ET.
3* weak foot
Alright, first review, so here goes nothing.
I've seen countless reviews and comments about how Oscar wasn't worth it, or he didn't provide for the team he was playing for, or whatever other excuse. In my experience, having done the CSL SBC as soon as it came out(thus spending about 130k to get him), and using Oscar for 140+ games, I feel they couldn't be more wrong.
I have played a Brazilian team for the majority of the time I have played FIFA 19, but with all the broken Brazilian SBC players that came out with Carniball and Birthday, I couldn't fit him in a solely Brazilian squad. So, I currently use him(yes, I still use him) in a Prem/Brazil hybrid. Oscar plays CAM, with FFS Eder Militao and Futmas Firmino at CM, Flanked by Birthday Willian on the left and Carniball Hulk on the right wing. Headliners Arnautovic Leads the line. (All my players are on 10 chem, i use in game switches to get to this.)
Now, enough about the squad he is used in, and on to the player himself. This man is in the right place, at the right time, 9.9/10 times you use him. His work rates are perfect for a CAM/CF. His dribbling is exquisite. He seems to turn out of any situation and find a perfect pass down the flank to a cutting winger. His short passing and through balls are amazing, but long balls over top sometimes leave something to be desired.
On to his shooting. Oscar is no Carniball Talisca, but even post-nerf, a finesse shot on his right foot is more than likely going to find the top righthand corner. Where Oscar surprised me is in the attacking positioning and reactions categories. Like I said previously, he is always in the right place, and thus he sometimes just finds the ball at his feet, inside or outside of the box, and has an open lane to hammer a goal home.
His defending and physical stats are nothing to write home about. He will win a ball if it's passed directly to his feet, but don't expect him to be anything close to your DM. In terms of physicality, I find his strength stat to be deceiving, as he will put up a fight against most midfielders to keep the ball and get a pass off. However, if you find yourself up against Varane, get that ball out of his feet quickly. His stamina is fine if you play him at CAM or CF, but at CM he tires out very easily.
Overall, Oscar has been a rock in my team for many a game, and he has provided countless clutch goals and assists when I needed them most. This card, especially now, is worth every penny.

Oscar is a really good CAM. I unlocked him for ~80k. First I played him in 4-2-3-1 as RCAM with Firmino CAM, Talisca IF LCAM and Lewandowski up in front. I gave him Hunter and he scored his Goals. In 68 Games he made 34 Goals and 8 Assists. Sounds not much, but for a RCAM with Lewandowski as a Striker its pretty well. Then, I improved my Squad and started to use him as Playmaker. He doesn't score that much anymore, but he started to assist. In 23 Games he got 7 Goals and 17 Assists. With 77 Pace and 80 Shooting compared to 87 Passing and 86 Dribbling, I had to keep Hunter on him, even as a Playmaker. His Longshots are absolutely overpowerd. When you know how to hit Green Timed Finishing, in a Distance around 25 meters, he'll score with a 90% Chance.Also he nearly didn't made any passing mistakes and he is very hard to get away from the ball with 89 Ball Control. His Strenght is not a big problem, but a 1v1 against Van Dijk he obviously wouldn't win. With 82 Stamina I'm not forced to sub him out, but after the 75th to 80th Minute, he isn't that fit anymore..
maybe defending (if he should come back for defending like I have)
Whatever you do see about this man, about people saying there are better options, trust me they are wrong. I was not a huge fan of FIFA last year being quite a rage monster. But this year I decided to try it out. As soon as I saw the League SBC released this man caught my eye. Oscar is a very good middle CAM (used in the 4231,41212(2) he has the playmaking to him and has the agility. If you are looking for someone to hold the ball in the middle of the park this is the man. Great links being Brazilian and even good on 8 chem. He was used with timed finessing and that was OP but since the update still as a middle CAM with IF Pato he is racking up goals. Please do get him (I don't want to hype up this SBC) he will improve your game if you are a beginner and even if you are good at the game. Even his rather low agility is not very noticeable. You will find him to be super tired after a game, but he does manage to finish the game and still play well.
