Having completed the Bundesliga SBC in anticipation of the added winter refresh card, I saw this Lainer card and wasn't too excited at first. However, having looked at his in game stats in depth, I realised that this card with an anchor could contest baby Zambrotta as my starting RB.
After using him for the first 5 games, I was already sure that he would be my RB till TOTS, as far as RBs are concerned, he is by far the best one, there is the argument that he could be more useful as a CDM, which I have not yet tested out, but with his qualities, I am certain he would be a great addition to the midfield.
Pace: He can catch up with anyone, I faced TOTY Mane and Neymar multiple times, and with the anchor on him, they all struggled to cope with Lainer's pace.
Dribbling: Although his dribbling is not 'game-breaking' as such, it is very much-so respectable, especially for a fullback.
Passing: Very good for a RB, not exceptional but definitely not bad, better than your average RB.
Defending: With the anchor on him, the additional defending seemed to make a large difference, he always seemed to be in position and won most tackles.
Physical: The boost to his strength was necessary, hence the anchor. However, he generally seemed to outmuscle nearly every player he faced. Also, the 99 stamina is a great addition to the card.
Shooting: Fairly basic, yet better than majority of fullbacks.
Super Stefan. I use Lainer with guardian and he is a fantastic player. Very relliable and always wins the tackle at important moments. I did his SBC for 140K and it was totally worth it.
Pace. Feels very quick running back but also on the ball.
Defending. He is always in the right place at the time. His standing and sliding tackles are perfect, every time. I use him with guardian so his defensive awareness and interceptions are also improved.
Dribbling. This was the biggest surprise for me, because he is also very good at dribbling. His agility and balance are very good and combined with improved ballcontrol and dribbling and with very good pace, his dribbling is worldclass.
Passing. His passing is solid and the 4* weakfoot is very handy so he can pass the ball with both feet.
Stamina and aggression. Both 99 stats and you can feel it. Nothing more to say.
Shooting. For a rightback his shooting is very good, his shotpower is high which is very nice.
Lainer has no real cons, but more like not-perfect stats, such as:
Strength. It is 78, it feels like 85 but it isn't 99.
No 4* skills. Doesn't matter at all because of his dribbling.
