Diego Armando Maradona
By S5KillHunter, 06-07-2020

So let me first just shoutout Miniminter for getting me Prime Maradona from my prime icon pack because it was very unexpected with my pack luck lol. I consistently play fut champs and I usually end at gold 1 bc I cba with anymore lol but I'll occasionally play div 3 fut rivals as well. Alright so first things first, Maradona has a very glitchy build in this game, he always gets rebounds and his center of gravity makes it difficult to take the ball off his feet. So the main components that you should expect and receive from him are his dribbling (which is crazier due to his 5ft 5 height), his pin-point passes, his electrifying pace (satisfactory at this stage in the game), and his consistent shooting and finishing. Also, he fights for the badge in-game even though it seems that he has generally average physical stats. His high-medium work rate is perfect for an attacker so that's a plus. Due to his insanely pin-point passes and his 5-star skill moves, I decided to play him at CAM but I also tested him at ST in 4-2-3-1 and 4-4-2. IMO, he is probably best fit for CAM due to his passing, dribbling, and skill moves. The problem with playing him at striker is that his height doesn't help when he plays defenders like VVD, Militao, or someone like Diego Carlos as he gets bodied off easily; in addition, his 3-star weak foot and lack of outside of foot shot trait doesn't help either as that is the current meta for a striker at this stage of the game. Now I got him from my prime icon pack so it was worth it for me but if you want to purchase him, he's great but there are definitely more meta attackers for his price or cheaper and if his name wasn't Maradona, then he'd probably be cheaper but the sentimental value extends the cost of this card.

PPace- He feels very fast, especially for a CAM but I wouldn't push it to the level of the likes of an Adama, Mbappe, or TOTSSF Salvio. However, it is very satisfactory at this stage in the game but it slows down due to his stamina by the 80th minute

Shooting- His shooting is top tier, especially with the finesse shot trait and it is very consistent throughout a match. Only thing is that it would be better if he'd have 4 or 5-star weak foot but if you can utilize his 5-star skills then it shouldn't be too much of an issue to put him to his left foot. However, in some games, his 3-weak foot lowkey feels really good, like I don't know why but it can feel like a 4-star weak foot sometimes.

Passing- Pin-point, no real issues but if you can pass it with is left, it would be preferable but even his right foot passes aren't much of an issue either.

Dribbling- He dribbles like he did IRL, so it's god tier and probably his best attribute in-game. His height and low center of gravity make it even better and he'd just gain those glitchy rebounds that I'd get with Neymar.

5-star skills also feel nice on him as well, maybe not Neymar or R10 tier but it's up there.

3-star weak foot isn't the best at this stage but it lowkey feels like a 4-star in-game only sometimes but it isn't something to rely on.

Defending- He's an attacker so this is irrelevant.

Physical- He fights for the badge in-game but his strength correlates with his height in-game so he'll get bodied by top tier defenders. Jumping stat doesn't really matter in-game since headers in FIFA is trash this year and his 5ft 5 height doesn't help either. The big killer is the 78 stamina which doesn't allow him to play to his full capacity past the 80th minute so I'd recommend playing him on stay forward and to have a super-sub for him by the last few minutes and/or overtime if the game reaches that extent.
