Still OP or nah?
By OmidHound, 04-10-2018

I was lucky enough to pack his UCL version of the card which i can say is identical to the normal one i used before that! this review is based on combined 50+ games played with the two cards in div 5 and 4.

55 goals and 17 assists , with a hawk chem style playing ST around 350k worth of EPL players in the squad.

First thing i want to mention is that the definition of "OP" is not the same as it was in the previous installments of the game , No you can't dribble past the whole defense line , neither can Neymar , no you cant out-pace most of the fullbacks , neither can Aubamyang! so what divides this card from a normal 10k ST?


  • Positioning : dear good god! this man keeps running and running and running! creating tons of space whether for himself or the other forwards! his runs makes it so much easier to score against this crazy AI defending! other than that if a ball is rebounded in the box , guess who is always at the right place to tap it home?
  • Pace/dribbling : very quick off the mark , creates yards of space when chasing a through ball , tho defenders will catch up to him since they have 99 pace apparently , but the space is great enough to give you more than enough time for a final decision! also would like to mention he is very nimble on the ball , great first touch , amazing agility and close control, and quality movement on the ball
  • Reactions: Really? reactions? YES! REACTIONS! when a ball is loose Gabriel always seems to be the first to get to it , which with his stats means Danger anywhere near the box. i think you've noticed when you intercept the ball , some players just wont let go until the get it back! and its really annoying right? well , this is the stat that makes that happen! even when you botch a dribble , you still have a decent chance of getting away with it!
  • Shooting : not as great as fifa18 which is not something exclusive to this card , shooting system is kinda weird! deal with it, but still much better than many decent forwards i used so far (IF werner, Depay, Balotelli , Gameiro, Aspas, Lacazette, ...)
  • Stamina : you need your players to be 100% all game



So overall is he still OP? IMO yes!

worth the coins? YES! you cant get a player his quality for less that twice his price!

Is he a game changer? Well not really, He usually outshines most of his teammates but this is not a game that you can win with 1 player , so i dont suggest you buying him if you dont already have a pretty decent team.

Beast - 3* WF

Used this guy in my Weekend League squad as i wanted a striker with lethal finishing and good agility, he didn´t dissapoint a single second. Best striker i have tried this year. He has some special black magic powers of getting bullshit goals just like last year, his Att. positioning and finishing is amazing. Clinical in front of goal.

  • Att.Position - He is always at the right place at the right time.
  • Finishing - If he gets the chance, it´s a goal.
  • Dribbling - Especially his agility and balance makes him good on the ball.
  • Pace - Feels fast in game and on the ball.
  • Stamina -He can play the full 90 minutes without problems. (84 Stamina)


  • 3* Weak Foot - Never uses his weak foot which can affect his game.
  • Height
  • Strenght

amazing card cheap beast of the prem
By michael3724, 02-01-2019

I have used him in multiple teams because I can't seem to let him go I have used him in Brazilian teams prem teams and i found him amazing except for a short 5 game stint. He surprised me by scoring a bunch of headers over quality defenders.

  • Don't be scared of the three star weak foot he will still score amazing goals with his weak foot.
  • He for me was amazing at headers he would reach the ball every time most of the time it would go in when it didn't it would hit post it was basically never off the goal.
  • Amazing dribbling it was like the ball was glued to his feet. he would also do quick turns to where the defenders couldn't react in time.


  • he isn't strong so he lost a lot of 1v1 with defenders like bailly or Dávinson Sanchez.
  • pretty obvious but he isn't a good defender he would pressure but it would rarely effect the defender. he pushed back a lot of the time so you have to make him stay up because of the high defensive work rate

Gabriel Jesus
By TheLovelyChicken, 01-10-2018

I bought this guy expecting him to be some sort of God, drastically better than my Alexandre Lacazette, but I was wrong! In Fifa 18, his Gameplay ability was amazing, but this Fifa, he feels very average. If you were considering buying him, then I would strongly advise you to go for someone like Zaha, or Vardy instead. I think that they are quicker, and put the ball in the goal a lot easier, despite the new finishing style.


I mean, he only scores from easy chances, he doesn't seem to have great pace, although pace isn't needed in Fifa 19, as the defenders are like Usain Bolt, and I think he loses the ball easily. In the end, I decided to go for Lacazette again, who ended up with 2 goals and an assist in his first game!


Please make the right decision!
