So basically i needed a link to POTM Lucas and this card came out relatively recently and i was like ooh i can flex on this Div 5 rivals players and Weekend league noobs with this super flashy Serge Aurier card but im glad i decided to clout up my team. This man has the strength of two nuclear bombs in his arms. I have witnessed this man literally demolish any fool who dares to run the wings. If you've ever seen Broly from Dragon Ball Z this is basically him reincarnated as a military weapon of mass destruction. Playing him at RB with a shadow chem gives him the speed and defensive capabilities of Varane if he did cocaine. Honestly if you see this guy on the opposing team expect a player on your team to run away in fear or fake an injury just to avoid getting massacred by the BEHEMOTH that is 86 Aurier. He also can easily leap buildings and by that I mean he is probably the only non icon player with the ability to beat Aubameyang in heading.
-Speed (with shadow)
-Jumping (easily could get a gold in pole vault without the pole)
-Defense (im fairly certain this stat never matters if the player has speed, jumping, and physicality but he makes clean tackles and is very aggressive)
-He could easily shatter the Earth in two but instead he uses his strength to beat attackers like CR7 and Aubameyang
-Hes a defender so his shot isn't the best but if you want a corner rocket it at the keeper
-Dribbling every weapon of mass destruction has a downside and his dribbling is a slight one he won't be able to fly past defenders but he can manage if used properly
I got him untreadeble, so he's a starter since ever and forever, as an 86 as he is now he just won't let anyone get through him, literally, his side on the field is the side you won't have any trouble, doesn't matter if u r facing douglas costa or neymar (if it is the TOTY might matter) he's just a wall, as stronger as my CB and as faster as the wingers he matches against, attackers can't score headers on the backpost if he's in it, 99 jumping does the job
- PACE LIGHTNING FAST
- The passing a RB needs, didn't got in trouble because of it
- Doesnt look like the best dribbler in the game, and he isnt, but he can manage to leave nervous attackers behind with a simple skill move
- He does everything on the defense, just let him work
- everything is great about that physical
- If u need to cross, do it
- You dont wanna shoot with a RB right?
I have had the privilege to use this fantastically fun card for the past month. let me start off by saying that some players in FIFA leave you with an impression, this is added too when they have their own ingame real face and unique ingame differences such as this mans double white sweat bands, it makes him stand out you see so you can't miss him on the field.
He reminds me very much of Kante but overall greater in almost every way. Most noticeable is his heading, it is crazy how many headers this guy wins for me in both CDM/RM and RWB. I use custom tactics to within an inch of its life and so for a guy with such high stamina he is very flexible, so each game he will play in these varied roles depending on the demand and need.
The biggest surprise is the best chemistry style i found for him is Shadow (CDM mostly), perhaps this doesn't surprise a lot of people but his dribbling was so much smoother with shadow and he is just always in the right place at the right time and i put this down to the increased pace and generally high stamina.
As this is his likely final update as the game is this evening and city are the favorites , i wanted to let people know if he is worth buying after, the answer is most definitely yes. The card is a lot of fun and very sold in all areas besides the ones which isnt important for a CDM/RB IMO (shooting)
I will be keeping this card, which i purchased for 198,,000 regardless if it rises or falls. I suggest if he fits into your team you give the chap a go!
Positioning (CDM/RM/RWB always just where you need him at any given point)
Strength (ignore the 80 it is more like 90-95)
Dribbling (smooth turns)
Stamina (90 mins no dramas)
Shooting (Powerful but inconstant)
Long passing (he is no Matthuas)
High/High WR. (Some people don't like players that switch phases so often, some do :)
I had originally packed Aurier in a two player pack un tradable when the UCL Live cards came out and instantly fell in love with his orignal card, and it his stats have only gotten better with his recent upgrades. When first looking at his stats I wondered if his pace would be enough/noticeable compared to a player like Carnibal Bellerin. In his case his pace is fantastic in completing his task. His combination of strength/pace/jumping makes him a brick wall. When applying a shadow to him he becomes a 97 pace, 94 defending, and 86 strength RB in the prem with 99 jumping. In combination with sergio ramos and Prime moments blanc in the back, he makes a fantastic fullback. In my personal opinion I believe Aurier to be the most complete RB in the prem, a player who will not be pushed around and has the stamina to continue for a full 90+ min. Although Aurier doesn't contain the best links in the world, it wont affect him too much if you play him on 8 chem.
Pace (when chem style is applied, and upgrades are given)
Moving forward to shoot
Not as fast as Bellerin
Decided to buy him instead of UCL Valencia and it was worth it. He seems like such a complete player who can make strong tackles in defence and make vital passes in attack. Somehow he gets his head on most corners and reminds me of the Europa League version of Alonso (86). So if you're looking for a BPL right back and you got enough coins I would go for him.
He is not slow but he is not as rapid as other BPL right backs
