Get this card. Flashback Zlatan makes the game fun again.
Pace 84: His pace feels meta enough. Not rapid, not slow. But accompanied by his 99 strength even when caught he was never pushed off the ball for me, not even by TOTY Varane. 7/10
Shooting 94: Don't worry about the lack of the finesse shot trait. If you hit greens it's going in, unless you have a little sweat wiggling his right stick for the keeper. His near post green power shots are the best I've used on this game so far, keepers can't react. 9.5/10
Passing 87: Beckham. 10/10
Dribbling 91: Massively helped by his 5 star skills. If you're not a competent skiller, there may be a chance you do not get on with the card due to the 44 balance. His touch is perfect, he also reacted to loose balls I didn't think anyone would. 8/10
Defending 55: Winning by a 1 goal deficit in the 99th minute with 2 minutes added? Whack this guy in CB Van Dijk isn't winning a header against Zlatan he's a cheat. 9/10
Physical 92: OH MY. Best thing about the card. Corners become penalties. I was using Hawk which puts him up to 90 Jumping at 6'5 with 99 aggression and heading accuracy accompanied with the power header trait. Again he's a cheat code, totally unfair & I've already received messages for scoring every corner or cross I have. 10/10
Overall the most fun I've had with a card on FIFA since FIFA 14 Zlatan. And at 200K the biggest steal you could ever have.
Stamina (I didn't have a problem with 90+ minutes at ST 4-2-3-1 though)
Well what can i say, the lion king is back with INCREDIBLE stats!
When i saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic flashback card i was so happy. He is my favourite player in real life (except Ronaldinho) and when i saw these stats i litteraly started to think that this is a icon or toty player for 180 k. BUT before i did the sbc i was thinking how i should link him. That is the most bad about this card. So i came up with a idea that actually works excellent. I have my regular team and the only thing i change is two players in my squad. I have 4-3-2-1 and Ibra in ST and Alessandrini at LF. In the bench i have Thauvin purple card (league sbc) and as soon as the match starts i change Alessandrini with Thauvin. That is actually a good solution to use if you really want him and have link problem. But Zlatan is actually a beast and he goes on a whole nother level. I highly recommend to do this SBC because its worth the money for a such good striker.
Shooting - Scores EVERYTIME he shoots. The goalkeepers does not have a chance against him
Physicality - Have 99 strength and agression. It makes him unstoppable and the defenders against him have it very difficultnto stop him.
Passing - His passes are unbelievable. He has so good passing ingame.
Dribbling- Very good with his god stats and a speciality.. 5 star skills
Pace - With hunter he runs like a tiger (yes i know he is a lion)
Defence - Who cares about his defence?
His balance can be problem
Not so much stamina but i would say that he can play for 90 minutes
Links can be a problem but there is always a solution!
Just completed the SBC for around 130k as I had a few players in the club. Insane value for the SBC, you get a 55k pack and a 50k pack which you get a decent amount of coins from. He's insane from corners as he's 6"5 and has 99 heading accuracy. Finishing is brilliant, both inside and outside the box. Passing is good and is helped by 92 curve and 89 vision. Physically, he's a machine, with 99 strength and aggression, no-one can seem to get the ball off him. Finally he has 4 star weak foot and 5 star skill moves which is superb to have. I would play him as a lone striker e.g. in a 4-2-3-1. Only downside is stamina, however his medium/low work rates means he doesn't run much anyway
Great value for your coins, you'll regret not getting him
Possibly work rates
Linking him into a team
So before I got this gem of a card I just bought 91 rated Marco van Basten who was my first legend ever on FIFA. Now you might think that I'm a newbie and why should you read this review... But I'm on 919,700 XP on FIFA (PC) which translates to level 90. I used to be div 1 player back in FIFA 15/16 days with 30k English teams. So now we established that I know what I'm talking. Now let's go and start the review. Ibracadabra has a similarity with legends. And the similarity is that almost every shot goes in. First experienced it with van Basten. When I sold him I thought I'm stupid for doing it, no way Ibra can be as OP as a legend... OH BOY I WAS WRONG. He is just insane. Then some of you might think, oh no, he can not be linked in to a squad... Just stop with that nonsense. Just go with 4321 where Alessandrini is the only link you need, and to link him is easy, you just need a French CM and FIFA 19 has some insane french CMs. Next stupid though that might creep onto your mind is: But Alessandrini is shit. Why would I use him. Again my kind sir... You are wrong. I have played with him for 50 games as well (surprise, surprise). His stats are 50 games 18 goals and 24 assists. Which is great for a 78 rated winger on a team with Mane, Pogba, and Ibra.
+Shooting (You don't even need to time his shots and most of them go in, even the all-mighty first time finesse shots from outside the box)
+Dribbling (With Sniper Ibra gets to 95 agility, which makes a big difference IMO, and is much more useful then the pace upgrade)
+Passing (If you call your players back towards goal on your kickoff Ibra often stays in offside which does not count on goal kicks, wins the header, passes to central CM or wingers and then just a cheeky 1-2 and your winger is running alone towards opponent's goal)
+Hold up play + positioning (when you circle the ball 30 m away from opponent's goal looking for opportunity to create a chance he is always waiting on the edge of the box with his back towards the goal. Then you just wait for him to have half a meter of space, pass him the ball, use the dribbling to turn sideways too goal and shoot. It's actually that easy)
+Corners (We all know that first post corner goals are almost as much AIDS to concede as finesse shots from miles out, and Ibra is just a beast at scoring both to be honest)
Probably missed something as well, but he is just that good
-Link (I mean it would be better for him to be a Legend card, but if you read the top part this is not even a big problem)
-Balance (Again with Sniper this is not really that much of a problem as he is agile enough that he can break through any defense, and if the defense catches up, he is already in penalty area waiting to get you a penalty)
Jesus, What do you even say about Ibra. Man is straight up filthy, and an absolute animal. His height means he wins pretty much every header for you and his strength makes him nearly impossible to push off the ball. With a hunter on 8 chem he has 90 pace (which is elite) and while he still feels slower than other 90 pace players he definitely isn't slow. Finally how can you talk about this Ibra and not mention the cannon he has, he is always in the right spot and never misses a chance. Ibra is a bargain to get and absolutely should be done if you have the coins.
-Rocket of a shot
-5* skills (if you know how to use them)
-Cant make a side of 11 Ibras
