This guy is sick. While I procrastinate doing economics revision I decided to write a review of this little french messi. His standout stats, 96 pace, 99 agility, 91 dribbling, 95 shot power and 88 passing make this guy a mental CAM in the 41212 narrow formation, darting like a serpent through the two centre packs like Lozano with more dribbling and a nice gucci headband. Although he is quite difficult to get, especially with all the sweat meisters in online single matches with the generic Zlatan, Martinez, Tevez front three, this card just looks like a cooler looking version of Mbappe. Also a game changing substitute if he's not good enough or doesn't fit in the starting XI.
Shooting (not perfect but still good)
When I first completed the SBC, I was expecting him to be very good, because of the fact that he has very similar stats to Mbappe, but better. He has the same pace, one better dribbling, four better shooting and six better passing. I can confirm that he is exactly how good I thought he was going to be. I used a sniper on him to get his dribbling up to 96, and his shooting to 92. First off, he feels super quick, just as Mbappe, and his 99 agility and 4 star skills means he can get just by anyone. Even with a lot of catch up by defenders in this game, his acceleration and sprint speed are so both so high (96) that he is able to get by most defenders. His shooting is also amazing, and he has 97 shot power and 87 curve, meaning he's insane at both power shots and finesse shots. For a striker, which is where I play him, he has really good passing, meaning his link up play is great. Pair that with his amazing pace and 1-2's with him are really good. Lastly on to his physical. Although he only has 70 strength, it's not too noticeable because usually he is able to speed away before getting pushed off the ball. His stamina is fine at 81. I play him as a striker with stay forward and get in behind, and he is going to have more than enough stamina after the game is over, and he should make it through extra time just fine. But I know some people like to play with pressure after possession loss or heavy touch, and he will get be able to stay the whole game, but in extra time he will be dead. This guy only cost me 140k, which is a bargain. I mean, this guy is better than Mbappe, and 100k+ cheaper. He will also get most of the same links as Mbappe due to the same league and nation.
- 96 Pace - He is super quick, and because he is small and super agile, he feels just as quick as the stat. On par with Mbappe. 10/10
- 85 Shooting - His shooting is very good, great powerful shots and also amazing finesse shots, his only problem is his low composure. If you put a sniper on him, his composure will go up to 80, which isn't anything amazing, but it gets the job done, and I don't really notice it. 9/10
- 85 Passing - His passing is very good, and if you play him at a striker or winger, you will notice that his passing is better than almost any other player in his position, you can easily play him at CAM if you wanted to. 8/10
- 90 Dribbling - His dribbling is amazing, and pair that with 99 agility makes him so good at getting by defenders. A lot of the time I don't even need to use a skill mode, his high agility makes him glide right past the defenders. He is also extremely fun to use due to his amazing dribbling and lightning quick pace. 10/10
- 4*4* - He has 4* skills and 4*, which is really good. 4* skills moves are almost required of strikers or wingers now a days, and he has that, which helps get around opponents easier. 4* weak foot is also very good, as he is able to score goals on both feet, and his left is surprisinly reliable.
- H/L Workrates - His workrates are amazing, as H/L means he will always stay forward and make really incredible runs. On top of this, he has 89 positioning, so he will always be in the right place at the right times, and his runs are always really good, and he is able to get to them and score due to his pace.
- 75 Composure - His composure if not amazing without a sniper chem style, but if you do use a sniper it's not anything to bad. But you will defiantly notice it sometimes
If you´re looking for an cheap alternative to Mbappe, Saint Maximin might just be your guy! For around 150k you get an amazing winger, who can be a real Game-changer. I played him as a RW-Player and he impressed me. His Power-Shot is just amazing. Dribbling past 3-4 Defenders shouldn´t be a problem with his 96 Acceleration and Sprint Speed, pared with his incredible 99 Agility , 91 Dribbling and 93 Balance. I decided to put a Sniper Chem Style on him, so I could boost his low 75 Composure a bit. This guy has scored 14 Goals in 15 games, pared with a few assists. I can only say: If you can´t afford Mbappe, go for Maximin. If you can afford Mbappe, go for Maximin. The Best RW in the Ligue 1, other than Mbappe TOTY lol.
-Amazing Shot Power and Curve
-His Positioning is out of this world.
-Passing in general
-Strength and Semi-low Stamina (81)
