So as I opened my prime icon pack and saw it was a CB from italy I prayed for Cannavaro or Maldini obviously. I saw it was Nesta and I was a bit frustrated, not gonna lie. But then again he is one of the best centerbacks of all time and he has a great picture on his prime, so I gave him a full weekend league to prove EA did him justice. And I packed him on his birthday, maybe as a sign to try him out.


First of all, I tried out the mid icon Maldini right before Nesta and for me, Maldini is nowhere near Nestas level defensively. I think that is mostly due to his very low aggression which for me is one of the most important stats this fifa for a CB.


I played Nesta besides Juan Jesus and they complete each other perfectly. Juan Jesus on the one hand more like a "rushy" type of centerback that I like to aggressively tackle the attacker. Nesta more like the calm defender waiting after the storm to always get the perfect tackle in. DON´T rush him out of your defence, he is best moving sideways or just bullying attackers running towards him.


Pace- with a shadow very solid, can be too slow for counterattacks though


Passing - surprisingly good, switches to fullback, strong passes to the midfield both worked well


Dribbling - I honestly didn´t feel a difference defending with him or Maldini. I think 30-65 agility is pretty much the same thing. Sometimes his "low" agility actually helped him not stepping sideways to much. Didn´t have any problem at all.


Defending - absolut elite, always tackles instantly when close to an attacker. For me way better than mid Maldini.


Physicality - incredible strenght, high aggression -> perfect for this game.


For me he is exactly what I need besides a fast and agile CB like Juan Jesus. He was always there to clean up the mistakes I made with Jesus. For me, a 9.5/10 centerback and definetely not a bad player to get from the pack.


Cheers and again sorry for my english :) Have a nice time in these tough days and remember to stay at home if you can to not only protect yourself but your loved ones and the eldery, weaker out there.
