Don't let the low composure put you off this card. His free kicks are the best I've seen in the game this year due to the 99 FK accuracy. He's great in the air at the near post on corners even though heading is trash in this Fifa. Weird card in terms of strength, he's out muscled Maldini in game but then struggled against players such as Rashford.Whack a sniper on him and you'll have a great player at zero cost. Has 8 goals and 2 assists in 5 games for me with 2 of the goals being Free kicks
This card is so overpowered in certain aspects and so frustrating in others - but worth the grind because he's good fun to play with just because of his UNBELIEVABLE FREEKICKS. I mean they literally go in every single time. You can never give away a freekick less than 10 yards outside the box with this guy because he will score, bit far to the left or right, doesn't matter, it's still going in. My "Recent Captures" is now full of freekick goals by Mariano. The frustrating side of his game - his acceleration isn't great and at this stage in the game it means he rarely outpaces a defender and secondly, for a player with 87 Phy, he seems to get nudge off the ball pretty easily, but when he does get through on goal, he generally puts them in.
Freekicks - Ridiculous
Tends to put the easy chances away 1 v 1.
Despite 87 physical gets pushed of the ball too easily.
WOW, just wow. This man with an engine is real goodness. If you see his body type you might think that he will be slow, but damn, he is faaast. His agilty boosted to the max with engine will help him a lot. His long shots are also really good, I don't know if you are of those, but a finesse shot every match doesn't harm. OP finesse shot. I did him to put him in the la liga guarantee, but I'm playing wl with him, I trust him to be better than my storyline belotti.
This man has surprised me a lot. I got his objective by mistake, not even knowing that I was completing it. I remembered his card from fifa 18 so I decided to build a team around him. Wow. With engine, this card will last in my team for a long time. I find him to be absolutely killer clinical in the box, with both feet. His pace is nice as well and he has pushed away defenders like TOTS Varane and Ferdinand for some reason.
Used him in Rivals and WL, can say Im surprised. Its a really fun to use card, and also something different from all the vardy's and Mbappe's we see every game. 10/10 for me.
A few weeks ago I saw this objective Mariano, and I thought that he might be an alright player. Even if he wasn't, I'd be able to use him as SBC fodder. It was pretty easy to get him, took me a couple of games, and I got him, threw him in the club, and kinda forgot about him. Last week, I decided to use him in my new team, and the first game I played with him he scored a hat-trick. the game after a brace, and his form never dropped. He is an absolute machine, a shot means a goal with him. I've taken three free kicks and all three have gone in, while with other players I can hardly score one. If you have him in your club and don't use him, I recommend building a team around him or at least using him as a super-sub!!
Shooting - Shot = Goal
Free Kicks - Free Kick = Goal
Physicality - Can hold off defenders and jumps very well for headers
Pace - Is acceptable but not the fastest player ever, I boosted it using an Engine
Dribbling - Again, not the best but acceptable. I also boosted using an Engine.
Passing is nothing special, but he also doesn't mess up short passes. Try to avoid long passing with him.
This card is amazing, the last TOTS moment that was released was Ayoze Perez who was absolutely trash but this card oh my god is amazing. It's such a massive level up from Ayoze Perez who once again is so trash. Doesn't matter about 3 star skills cos no one ever skills in this game, everyone just acts like a card needs minimum 4 star skills only for internet up votes but this card is amazing how it is
I don't have any, Maybe the nation and you can only strong link this guy with Real players
It so easy to make this Mariano way easier than making Ayoze Perez that is not that good as Mariano, if you have a La liga squad you can make it like in two days if you don’t grind everyday a lot of time but if you grind everyday you can make in a couple of hours and it is totally worth it really you wouldn’t not regret it.
Haves some good links I linked him with Asensio abc and Saul headliner and are 2 very good links
4 stars weak foot
richarlison is a great partner to be strikers
3 star skills(not something that I care you can do good stuff with his skills)
Used him as a RAM in a 4-2-3-1 formation during Weekend League. I put a hunter on him as I generally want my winger to be rapid.
I am not going to act like I am an incredible FIFA player (finished 17- 9) however, this card was very underwhelming. I will say that his finishing and free kicks were incredible, however, that pretty much the only good factors about this card. His dribbling was terrible and he felt super clunky on the ball, he also felt very slow even though I had applied a hunter chemistry style on him, taking his pace to 99. I think the dibbling has something to do with his Stocky body type. His stamina (84) mixed with his work rates (H/M) also meant that he never lasted an entire game and had to be subbed off. The 3 star skills although not unusable, made it harder to get past players. His passing was meh, wasn't good nor bad.
Would still recommend doing this card as it is a 89 rated card as easy to get, however, I would not use him in game. If you have to, play him as ST not as a winger. SBC fodder.
