Guys this guy is real beast.I didnt like lacazette before in any version of fifa,but this is very good
Faster then Dalglish,shooting on the same level,passing are better.Dribling is good.
Pace 9/10 No other cons for me.I played for Dalglish/Butragueno and this guy is better
So. This bloke is the nuts. I'm not an amazing player but get drawn in way too deep with this stupid game. I was fortunate enough to pack him in the FUT Birthday Party SBC thing.
- I play him as ST in 4-5-1
- Chem Style - Engine
- Instructions - Drift Wide, Get in Behind and Stay Forward
- The product of Son & Ben Yedde
- He's boss
He's 5'9 and fits the meta of being agile, well balanced and mobile to counter stronger built players.He rides challenges like a young gazelle being hunted by a pride of Lions (Gazellette?). He's able to get well in front of his man to receive the ball and very often pulls off those last minute passes round the corner which kind of look like tackles.
His touch is an absolute joy, the ball is on a string when using L1/LT. I have SS Richarlison with Engine who basically punts it off every angle of his shin in comparison to big boy Alex. His attacking movement is so smart. With Drift Wide, he starts his run centrally then peels off in between the fullback & centreback. He's literally always there for pull backs and rebounds due to his decent positioning.
Pace - you don't need to put Hunter on him. Please don't. I massively recommend Engine so he has a better chance against your Van Dijks. Varanes, Ferdinands etc. His acceleration is deceptively good so don't worry about it. His timing of runs is that good it doesn't matter. Make sure you have a decent CAM who can thread him passes.
Now his finishing...mate his finishing.....
With the upgraded 5* weakfoot he's just an absolute titan. Fizz it into him anywhere in the 18yd box and he'll set himself up perfectly to thunder it in the near post. R1/RT dragbacks are obviously sweaty but unsurprisingly he does this well too. Scroll the ball to the side a little to make an angle and always, always go near post - goal,
Finishing with either foot obviously ridiculous. Dribbling and riding challenges. Quick off the mark with Engine.
Although do appreciate he is somewhat expensive and we'd all love 99 Strength
Lacazette is the god. I've played 16 and he has only missed 1 shot on the goal. he puts everything in the net
- 5* weak foot
- good strength
- a bit aids but good aids
- not as fast as i thought
- as long as you don't have Arteta as your coach everything should be fine
Ok, so the 5 star weak foot was a massive draw for me this year, the lack of having to make sure you were on your good side before shooting is super META. I tried Greenwood, Son, Rashford Birthday and all felt slightly underwhelming and then this guy happened.
Wow, he finishes literally everything, anything within 20 yards and its on target. I love him, literally wouldnt swap him for anyone else in this range even TOTSSF Aguero.
His agility and balance are perfectly fine so i boosted his shooting and pace with a Hunter and dont regret a moment of it.
Will probably keep him until i can afford TOTY or TOTSSF De Bruyne which will probably be never.
5* WF is god like
Agility and Balance are good
High attack Workrate
Cant think of anything significant, maybe price, hes around the 680-770 mark usually depending on time of week
My boy Laca, what a goated card. Always have wanted him since the FUT Birthday promo came out as I'm an arsenal fan, and right now this guys performing well in real life (Goals against Wolves, Tottenham, Liverpool, big game player). And he does the same in FIFA. This card is still meta even after all the TOTS and SH cards, so that tells you something.
For most of my early games he played ST in 4-2-3-1 formation, but now I play him either alongside FUTB Mbappe in 4-1-2-1-2 narrow formation (check my review out of him too :D) or as LAM in a 4-2-3-1 formation, and he excels at both those positions. For the current meta, you need a Hunter on him but if you don't mind, a Hawk or Engine suits him well too. Here's what I thought of him.
Overall, a very very good card, if you're an Arsenal fan or are looking for a relatively cheap PL ST and don't have the fund for Aguero, Auba, this goat is the one for you.
Pace - Can't lie sometimes he does not feel like the 98 pace it says when he has a Hunter on him. Regardless, outpaces most right-backs and centre-backs with relative ease. Meta height too.
Shooting - Wow wow wow what can I say. My boy Laca loves those finesses and outside foot shots. Even when he doesn't have the finesse trait this guy can curl one in top bins. He can finish from almost any angle with the 5*WF. That's the only reason why he's still meta. 4*WF and his price is only 50k. Top class finishing from the goat.
Dribbling - Surprisingly good base stats. Good agility and balance combination, and 90 for all the rest. Quite satisfying to look at actually. His dribbling is underrated. 4*SM means he can buss a roulette or a cheeky flip flap if he wants. Always nice to have. Sometimes he does a Lacazette and misses an easy chance. But that's FIFA, not him.
Passing - Decent at best. If you're playing him at central CAM please use engine. He needs a boost. 88 Short Passing however means he can do those 1-2s with Mbappe which split the defence. You do love to see that. Don't switch up the play as 9 times out of 10 this guy will miss the target.
Physicality - Stamina is not sufficient for a whole game unfortunately. Probably the only downside. It doesn't help that he also has H/H workrates. Put him on Stay Forward and he can last a whole game. I don't as if I put my LAM at stay forward it ruins the shape of my team. Strength and aggro are also semi-decent, not the best. Don't expect him to body Varanes and Miltaos.
Defending - He's a ST, don't defend. However if the other team is on a counter you can guarantee this guys zooming to get the ball. If you are trying to clutch gold 3, this guys high defensive workrate is a blessing in disguise. Many times he has chased down the attacker from my corner to stop a counter-attack. Sure, it takes a lot of stamina, but if you have a sub ready (which you should probably do as its July) then it should be a good thing.
- Pace doesn't feel like 98, but still fast, don't let that put you off.
- Most passing stats (with Hunter, with Engine I would expect better of him)
- Stamina and his workrates are a bad combo to his longevity in-game
- Price (???, this is for those mandem who have just started). Otherwise he's really accessible.
First off i got to say this is my first review and i am a div 9 player.
But this guy scores everything he scores every shot and somehow he never get's tackled in the box
his finesse shot is incredible and he is great anywhere in the box.
i never really tried long shots but he will score a few of them i'm sure.
if you have the coins then it is worth it.
if you need a striker then this is your guy
his passing is good enough for a striker.
defending. but he is a striker
