First of all, I’m sorry for my english but it’s not my first language.
( Fun Fact I found Van Dijk in an untradeable 2 players gold pack.)
I have played 30 WL games with him and all I can say is that he is the best CB I’ve ever tried in Fifa 19. Let’s analyze his stats:
PACE: He is fast, very fast, and 90% of times he catches all the strikers running forward to score.
DRIBBLING: Even if his agility and balance stats aren’t very good, he is very usable.
SHOOTING: WOW, this is the stat that impressed me most. He scored a lot of goals by heading (if you know how to kick corners you can score 9 times out of 10 with him).That 99 shot power is fuc*ing good and he scored for me some goals that were absolutely great. 11/10 IGN
DEFENDING: That 95 is real, he can destroy easily almost every striker (even TOTY). His 91 Heading Accuracy and his 98 jumping makes him a beast in the penalty area while defending a corner.
PASSING: That 85 passing is a lie, he feels like he has 95. His long passages are fuc*ing great. It’s like using Modric.
PHISICALITY: His strength and his aggression makes him a beast, he literally destroys strikers with a lot of strength like Lukaku. The only “cons” is the stamina, that 81 feels weak.
Now the question is: Is he worth? It depends. If u have a lot of coins/a nice team the answer is yes, but if you don’t ,don’t buy him. He is good but he doesn’t make the team.
Maybe his WR and his stamina
During TOTY I was lucky enough to pack CB Virgil van Dijk, and as a Dutchy I had to give this card a shot.
WOW, just WOW what a insane card this is, with VVD in your defence is super solid and you will concede a lot less goals.
I have paired him with prime Blanc, TOTY Varane, FFS Eder Militao, FFS De Ligt and he out performs all of them easily.
Personally I prefer to have a CB paired with him with high defencive work rates, as VVD is a M/M.
If you have the coins go for it, you won't regret buying this card for a second.
- Fast for a CB
- Tall, wins almost any arial challenge
- Easy to link
- Scores many goals from corners
- Great passing
I have this card for more then 150 games now, and the only con for me personally is that the PL has not a lot of options for full backs. Atm I have SBC Dumfries next to him and that is good enough. Before I used VVD I had 2 icon CBs and that made life a lot easier for someone who doesnt seem to be able to find the perfect fullbacks.
TOTY Virgil Van Dijk is a defensive anomaly. He simply should not exist. I don't understand how you can be so tall, agile, athletic, quick, etc. all at the same time. If needed, he can be slotted in-game as a RB or CDM and do just as well, but his presence will be missed at the CB position. This card is a HUGE upgrade over all of his other cards and you will notice the difference immediately.
- Way too fast
- Can shoot
- Doesn't make passing errors
- Dribbles as well as an elite CDM
- Perfect defending and physical
- Can't lose a header
- Can literally jump over players' heads; isn't weighed down by his BBC
- Balance could be a bit higher, but doesn't make a huge difference
- Medium defensive work rate, but his medium offensive work rate offsets it
