Did him as soon as he appeared beacause Zlatan. First of all, he is awesome just because you get to use one of your favorite players. I have heard people complain about him not being up to the task because he „feels clunky”. I am here to tell you that he is not clunky; he is tall. Know the difference!
Pace - I've got nothing to add here. He's not Kent, but he's not a liar Orsic card. I am using Hawk Chem style because it helps his jumping and engine won't help at all with the balance.
Shooting - Weak Foot is not gonna be an issue for you. I scored a lot of goals with him both in Rivals and Champions even though I'm not a great player (usually Gold-Silver and Division 5). My advice for you here is to try to cross him the ball and shoot using the L2, it'll make for a great goal that you will want to show your friends.
Passing - You are not going to use him as a CAM, passing is not really relevant. He can handle the passing a tall striker needs.
Dribbling - You can dribble your way into the opponent's goal with the 5* SM. Balance is indeed a problem, but having the strength he has, if you L2 the contacts, you will win most of them.
Defending - Heading accuracy does not feel 99 at all. I have scored a lot of goals with Vela TOTSSF, who is miles behind Ibra statistically. In reality, I didn't feel his heading accuracy.
Physicality - HULK SMASH! Stamina is ok until 90th minute. He is not a player for overtime.
He will expire someday and you won't be able to get this free card.
I read the other two reviews for Ibra, and despite those reviews being very good and shedding some initial light on the card, some of you may be wondering if he is a viable option for gold 1 and higher level players. So, here's your answer!
PACE: 8/10- I mean, 94 pace explains itself. Ibra is very rapid, but if you can, play him as someone who is the 'focal point' or target man in your team. You want to play him like a Lewandowski or Immobile type player because despite being rapid, the body type and his height hinders him a bit.
SHOOTING: 10/10- I have never had many coins in this game, so I have never tried cards like R9, TOTS Lewandowski, cards that have a different shooting animation to others. The best finisher I have used is Summer Heat Perisic, and I thought he was good. With Zlatan, he puts swerve and dip on the ball depending on the situation, which is something I love with the card. At one position, his shot 'swerved' away from the keeper so he couldn't get a hand on it.
PASSING: 9/10- Really, really good. As I said before, he's a hold-up striker and is incredible at his job. At some points, the stamina at the end of the game made his passing a bit iffy.
DRIBBLING: 9/10- The real reason you came here. The Agility (with an ENGINE,) is absolutely brilliant and can send players for a hot dog really easily, probably because it is paired with his dribbling and ball control. His balance doesn't affect him, he has not fallen over once for me, just because his strength and aggression is so good. In front of goal, the composure makes him an ice-cold finisher, a huge impact on the shooting.
DEFENDING: N/A, but he wins the ball back tons because of the 99 Aggression.
PHYSICALITY: 10/10- He just bullies defenders. Will not, can not, be taken off the ball, and just bulldozes defenders like Haland in real life. Exceptional stat. However, you do need a super sub for him at around the 60th minute because of his stamina.
LAST THOUGHTS: Worth it. 100%. Just use Lasagna or Mertens to finish the objectives, and he is an end game card. The fact that he's there for the entire season means you can complete the objective at your leisure.
Thanks for reading!
Aggression and Strength
Basically nothing, body type on occasions I guess?
What a striker! I'll try to make things short: Ibra is - as always - an exceptional player. Yeah of course, he has lower balance than a drunken sailor during a storm on open sea with 40 meter waves, BUT who cares if the guy has insane strength, is taller than Hulk himself and shoots the ball like a rocket!? Honestly, he has his downsides, but lets not forget that is 1.) free and 2.) Zlatan! It's always fun to play him just because its him. Aren't you all tired of playing the same strikers over and over again? Aren't those Yedders, Atals, Mbappes and co all dusty and rusty by now? At this time in the game it comes down to having fun, using players not everyone uses and this guy is your chance to do so! Link him up with Theo, Kessie, Larsson or whoever fits you better, go out there and tear the nets apart.
For the gameplay part: yes he feels stiff, but you can't help that regarding his height. The runs he makes are really good, even if not always perfectly timed. Once you get the ball in front of the goal and either are through only facing the goalie or managing to make a clean turn around the last defender its game over, he finishes anything. I would actually recommend using him with a smaller, much more agile player just to give yourself a few more options up front! Stamina wasn't a big deal

This Ibra card is simply exceptional regardless of the meta. Let me tell you why. I have used him EXCLUSIVELY AS A SUB. He has made 3 appearances for me, coming on at HALFTIME and scored 8 goals. He has yet to appear on 10 chem for me and has only played just over 100 in game minutes for me as one of my opponents rage quit not long into the second half after Ibra scored 3 goals by the 60th minute. You may be thinking that this is a very small sample size to write a review with but hear me out. I played against 3 opponents. Two had very strong teams, giving me an idea of what he can do against end game defenders while the third had a weak team giving me an idea of what he can do against those who cant bring the best CBs to the table (hint- complete domination). Let me get into some detail.
For context, I play him as the sole striker in the 4231. Instructions: Stay forward, stay central, target man. Chem style: engine.
One positive (or negative when you have to play against him) about Ibra, he is very easy to get. You just need 8 rivals wins scoring with a Serie A player. You'll complete the rest naturally. In fact, I got 5/8 wins and all of the other steps done while upgrading my 89 Mendy to 93 Mendy. I used my flashback Mertens which made it especially easy but cheap, good, Serie A options are plentiful. There's no excuse not to get him, especially since EA gave everyone 3 weeks.
Now, lets get into some stats. I've written some other reviews before (TOTS Ramos and a few others), and how I like to do things is go through key attributes that make this card successful while giving examples of how they do these things against specific top tier cards that are exceptional at countering that stat. I'll continue to do so with this Ibra review.
Pace: This is definitely the fastest Ibra I've ever used. He's much quicker than flashback and TOTS Ibra from last year and in this year's game, that is crucial. He's not going to outrun the elite tier CBs with 90+ pace such as TOTS Ramos with the ball at his feet but there's other ways of getting past them that I'll detail later. I found using him against opponents with weaker CBs outside that elite tier that they have a lot of difficulty keeping pace with this card.
Shooting: Every shot is a goal, right or left foot. Not much to say here other than Ibra hits every shot with outstanding power. Tactically, using him as a target man is very effective in this way as he can receive the ball at his feet, push off the defender, and turn to either side to bang the ball into the net. Once he's got the space, no one is getting between him and the net again. Even though he doesnt have that 5* WF we all want on our end game FIFA 20 players, it still feels like a 5* WF. In fact, I'd rather have him shoot on his left foot than my TOTS Neymar or SH Jovic who DO have a 5* WF.
Positioning: he doesnt make many runs (that's fine, I don't need my striker to make runs the way I play, using them as a target man) but he's ALWAYS in the right place inside the box for a high percentage shot or to slam home a rebound off the keeper. Defenders have
Passing: Very solid passer. No complaints here.
Dribbling: Ahhh the balance. It's 46!!!! But.... WHO CARES! This man is as light as someone 6'5" can possibly be on the ball thanks to his outstanding stats in all other areas of the dribbling category. You won't notice the balance whatsoever, I promise. He doesn't fall over easily and he turns very well. It was a pleasant surprise to be sure. He won't turn like the 5' something meta players like Neymar, Ben Yedder, etc, but he definitely isn't a Lukaku or a Drogba either. A similar comparable might be some of the larger TOTS strikers like Richarlison. I would argue he's lighter on the ball than SH Jovic (who I also love). An added benefit is the 5* skills. These allow you to easily slip past defenders you cant outmaneuver with left stick dribbling.
Physical: This is where Ibra truly shines. The man is an absolute tower of strength. One man, 2 men, even 3 men cant get the ball from him. He can easily bully TOTS Smalling who I have found to be one of the best physical defenders in the game from experience playing against him. As I'm sure you know, Smalling can be incredibly irritating to play against, especially against an opponent sitting deep. When you run into the box you cant let him near you because as soon as he does he'll push a smaller player off the ball and take the ball with incredible ease, almost like VVD. Because of this, it was lovely to see Ibra push him off and run right over him on the way to goal multiple times. I need to try him against a 99 VVD at some point to get the ultimate test (99 VVDs are still somewhat rare in game, I don't see them often) but I think if he can hold off Smalling and keep control of the ball, that's about as good of a test as you'll ever find. Some more examples: my current CB pairing is TOTS Ramos and Premium Militao. Militao just doesnt have the physical attributes to deal with Ibra when I play against him. I NEED to have Ramos marking Ibra because he at least gives me a chance of winning the ball and not getting pushed off and left in the dust while Ibra runs in on goal to blast one past the keeper. Ramos' ultra high aggression and compete levels are essential when dealing with players who outsize him like Ibra.
Stamina: The one true Achilles heel of this card. Even with him set on stay forward and with his lazy man work rates, this Ibra still tires much quicker than I'd like him to. I like to play a fast paced high pressure game so 73 stamina just isn't enough. If he had 85+ stamina I would find a way to make him start in my team. I still might but I don't want to have to sub him off early, I'd rather bring him on as an impact sub and have him change the game in its later stages.
Links: There's plenty of good links amongst the pool of end game players. Mertens, Allan, and Sandro SBC cards. Theo Hernandez and Kessie for strong links. Nearly all the serie A TOTS cards are extremely affordable. Go get a 99 CR7 if you have lots of coins. Icons from swaps and icon packs link to him. There's no shortage of links, and, if you use him as a sub like me, he doesnt even need them!
To summarize, this card is as good of a striker as I've used on this game. He's not perfect due to his stamina but in terms of what he brings to the table, he'll score enough goals in the time he is on the pitch to make up for the time he's sitting on the bench. I still recommend using him as a target man as this style of play will allow him to maximize his best attributes and get the most out of him. PLEASE GET THIS CARD! YOU'LL REGRET IT IF YOU DON'T!
-Shooting/Finishing/Unbelievable Shot Power. Left foot feels like a 5* WF.
-Amazing dribbling for a man of his size
-5* skills allow for overcoming any mobility limitations
-Unparalleled strength and ball shielding ability.
Where the hell do I start? I'll start with the goal ratio:
5 games so far, 16 goals -- all in rivals
He is truly the best player in my club and such a game changer. I have Perisic; Tots De Bruyne; Neymar; and he outshines them all. It feels like you are playing with a tree that can dance and shoot. His dribbling is outstanding: he is so much fun in this aspect. His height is so nice, every header he wins, especially with the hawk, which gives him 94 jumping (AT 6 FOOT 5). He is an easy target for crosses and corners as well as over the top through balls. He can start and stop on a dime despite his absolute tank of a body type.
Pace - 9.5/10 You do not expect Kent and Adama speed but surprisingly, he is so hard to catch. His sprint speed is immaculate, and his acceleration isn't at all bad -- feels like 92 Acc/ 99 sprint speed
Dribbling - 10/10 Best dribbling you will find on a tree (oh and 5* skills are fun I guess). He turns quick for 6'5 and performs tricks like a trapeze artist even without a dribbling boost
Shooting - 15/10 No one shoots like Zlatan; Every shot goes in, 9/10 times it breaks the net. Left foot, right foot, doesn't matter (just don't take left footed finesse shots from outside the box)
Defending - 9/10 He presses so well and can pull of a decent tackle. Also his heading is out of this world
Passing - 9.4/10 Not De Bruyne level but he is precise and has amazing short passing and vision
Physical - 9.9/10 So perfect in every way but the stamina leaves a little bit to be desired
I have used him in Division Rivals, Division 7. HE IS JUST CRAZY. He can bang in volleys, free kicks, crazy angle shots with both feet easily. He is surprisingly agile for a 6"5 player, he takes the ball easily because of his 99 Agression and 99 Strength, his shots are crazy powerful (I scored free kicks with him against Van Der Sar, Ter Stegen and Nick Pope), his long shots are lovely, nothing else to say! 10/10.
