Let's just start by saying that this card is a steal for the 70k he is right now. Anyway, I packed this guy in my red player picks from finishing 14-4 in the weekend league and before I saw that he got an inform card the Wednesday before I wanted to try his 88 Future Star card who's price is around 270k atm, I now won't need that card. This card is identical to his FFS card in shooting, physical, passing and dribbling with the FFS card having 3 more pace and a tiny bit more defending/heading accuracy, I'm not lying, check it yourself :)
Let's get into the review by stats.
Pace: Pace on this card isn't an issue at all. With Luka being 6'0", 83 acceleration and 86 sprint speed is well enough if you ofc don't put a Hunter (goes up to 93 acceleration and 96 sprint speed) or Engine (goes up to 88 acceleration and 91 sprint speed) chemistry style on him. His acceleration with his 87 agility combined makes him well quick off the mark and when he has reached his maximum speed, he will get away from the meta center backs with ease.
Shooting: This is the best attribute to the card, this man's shooting is exceptional. 91 finishing and 96 on a hunter makes this guy finish every shot he takes with help from his fantastic newly upgraded 5 star weak foot and positioning which is fantastic, he literally gets to the ball from every pass he receives and is barely ever offside. My card has 5 games played and 14 goals scored in div 4 rivals scoring essentially every shot he's had. Long shots isn't an issue either with 84 even tho it seems low, his 95 shot power makes it up. His penalty stat isn't great but it feels like way more and you usually score them anyway.
Dribbling: When you hear the name Luka Jovic, you don't think about his dribbling instantly. But Jovic's dribbling is fantastic. 87 agility for someone who is 6'0" tall is great and if you decide to put an engine chemistry style on him (which I'm using on him), he gets 92 agility and 86 balance with 92 ball control and 97 dribbling adding onto it. These dribbling stats for a relatively tall striker is exceptionally good. Only low side of the dribbling section would be his 82 composure, which isn't bad at all but could always be better. If you feel like boosting that, slap a sniper chemistry style on him to get it to 87 and his 3 star skill moves.
Defending: He is a ST, what would you have expected, he's obviously not got great defensive stats. In this section of stats he has a huge 94 heading accuracy, meaning he will score almost every single header he gets if he doesn't get out jumped by someone. This guy is great in the air and when he gets the chance to head the ball into the net he will do it for you.
Passing: Luka's passing isn't anything special whatsoever. He's got good crossing in at 84 with an engine chemistry style which is good for the current meta of the game. Vision and short passing in at 86 and 88 with the engine chem style will do the job for 1-2's in the attack and 85 curve upon that. Long passing in at 77 isn't fantastic but Jovic is known for receiving passes, not making them. If you're considering using him at CAM, don't, he is a much much better ST.
Physical: This is also one of Jovic's best attributes. This guy is strong proven by his 86 strength and he's fantastic in the air, even tho he's got 78 jumping which can be boosted with a hawk or a marksman chem style he'll still win most headers against meta defenders. Stamina in at 82 is usable for sure. If you go into extra time in a game you might wanna sub him off but he can play the full 90 minutes that's for sure so don't worry about that.
So if you're planning on getting his Future Star card, don't, save yourself 200k by getting his new inform unless you want the cooler card design and tiny bit more pace and go upgrade your squad elsewhere instead. Best chem style for Jovic I'd say is engine, to boost that pace a little more, balance +10 and some more passing in attacking situations. Hunter/marksman/hawk and sniper chem styles are good options too if you feel like he needs some other stats boosted to fit your play style. Similar players I've used to Jovic is 91 inform Lewandowski and Shevchenko prime card and he is for me better than both, genuinely. DEFINITELY recommend him, especially since he's so affordable for most people in at 70k.
Agility for being kinda tall
Good links to good Bundesliga cards
3 star skill moves
Less cooler card design to his FFS card
Balance (sometimes, can be fixed with an engine chem style)
I was looking at getting his FFS card for my bundesliga squad but when i compared this card to his FFS there was little diffrences in quality and a huge one in price. I picked him up for around 35k on xbox and he has been sensational. Playing as a Left striker in a 4-3-1-2 he has been superb. His finishing is insane and when hes on the ball he feels like a meta card. His pace puts him above Lewandowski as the second best striker in the league(behind Werner). His overall game and his aerial prowese being 6ft and having 94 heading makes his suit the meta perfectly.
-Heading / Height
-Stamina (but only because i constanly want to give him the ball)
I used Jovic 86 for the first time in FIFA now and after 10 games I can tell that he's an absolute tank. I play him as striker in a 4-2-3-1 (ingame) and he scored 13 goals in 10 games for me. He is tall and strong, that's how it's easy for him to keep the ball. As well as that his 86 dribbling is a very important stat. His Ball Control is out of this world. But like every striker in FIFA he has his cons. I personally didn't like his passing but you could put a Catalyst on him to balance that out.
- 5* Weak foot
- Passing (Balanced out with Chem style)
My First Review
I got this card on my WL player pick. 86 Rated Jovic he's just sensational for me. he's my ST and i play him on 8 chemistry with an engine card, boi this card performs well ! way better then my 10 chemistry SBC Rooney (he's a complete let down). This guy can Head, Shoot, Push, run and he's tall, strong, and somehow be there for the finishing touch. although 3 star SM is a bit let down for a striker cuz La Croqueta but he makes it up with his 5 star WF which makes him lethal inside the Penalty box to your left or right just tear that net down, Putting Engine on him gives you everything he lacks 90 pace 83 passing and 86 balance. so while you're been chased by those CBs you got the speed, strength and balance to win 50/50s and reach your way inside the penalty box. Not to forget his 91 finishing with 95 shot power with any of the two foots gg. and while in corners flick in with the near pose header he won't let you down. Ultimately he's a beast and a good value for moneygo for it if you have a bundesliga squad.
5 Star Weak foot
good attacking positioning
value for money
good stamina for a ST
3 Star Skill moves
Not many links
but remember a perfect chemistry can improve all Cons
I stopped playing FIFA for about 3 months, but after using SIF Jovic, I can't stop playing. He is crazy good. I have only used him in Division Rivals, but I have met a lot of Icon teams and he is destroying them all. He is only 32K right now on PS4, which is incredible in terms of the quality he gives you ingame.
- Long shots
- Sprint speed
- 5* weak foot
