Virgil van Dijk - 94 - UCL LIVE
5.0
An absolute monster
By JasonX98, 31-12-2018

Incredibly I packed this man in the PL premium upgrade SBC and this guy is simply the best defender I played in FIFA 19 so far.

I already had his 85 rated gold card and even this card was a beast together with NIF Varane in the CB.

I also played Davinson Sanchez und Bailly IF but for all of them there is no comparison to Van Dijk RTTF.


Here my first impressions after I played some games with Van Dijk RTTF.


  1. Amazing defending skills: His tackles are just unreal. He wins nearly every ball thanks to his interception and standing tackle stats. He also wins a lot of 1v1 in the air thanks to amazing header accuracy and also to his his height. If you enemy plays with weak and short players like Insigne or Mertens then Van Dijk is going to eat them all.


2. Good position game: After I played a lot of games with his NIF and Varane, one difference is that Van Dijks position game is much better than from his NIF or Varane. He's doing less fails

and is always on the right spot. If not, he is able to catch up most defenders with a good sprint speed.


3. Amazing Physique: Compared to other defenders, he feels much stronger and even safer in 1v1 duels. As I wrote in the title, thanks to 95 strength this guy is just a monster.

His stamina seems a bit low with 73, but I never had a problem and he mostly performed during the game.


All in all I'm really happy with him to got him. He is an amazing defender with great defending skills, strong physique, decent sprint speed and amazing headers. He is also very dangerous for corners, so if you're the type of players who can score them easily.. Van Dijk is ready for you.

He also has the advantage that he can get a upgrade. So if Liverpool make it to the final again, than you have a defender you can play until the end of the season.

Compared to his NIF which is already class you will see the difference... Van Dijk RTTF is a new level.


Thanks for reading!

Insane defender

One of the best centerbacks if not the best in the game. I packed him weekend league rewards. First I thought to sell him but why sell him without trying? I put VVD in a squad and the difference was massive. My defending side was very strong using VVD next to Chiellini. Wins a lot a headers and can keep up with most attackers. He wins almost every battle in the air, so you won't get a lot a goals of headers againts you in corner.

-Pace is very good with VVD, I use him with the shadow chem style and it boosts up his pace to 86

-Heading - he will win you most headers, corners against CR7 no problem anymore with VVD

-His passoing was shockingly not that bad, he could give long passes to my attackers and they would do the rest

-Price value for this card it's underrated, VVD is 600K at the moment of writing this, keep in mind that he is a champions leaugue otw, he will upgrade if Liverpool wins the first game against Bayern and then if they win the whole round, so if Liverpool can get to the finals this VVD card will have stats like TOTY card.

There aren't that much cons actually maybe dribbling if you are in that kinda stuff with defenders
