Paulinho - 88 - Flashback SBC
Flashback Paulinho - A complete midfield package
By ashwin1411, 22-11-2019

There are a lot of Box to Box Midfielders in FUT 20 but after using this card I can assure you that Paulinho is the best card so far in FUT 20. He is better than IF Wijnaldum, RTTF Allan etc.

I play him at LDM alongside Fabinho in 4-2-3-1 with basic chem as it improves each and every game stats of his. He is a complete player as he provides in attack as well as defense.

Pace: Yes, he is not the fastest with 79 acceleration and 75 sprint speed, but he won't feel slow in game. Pace can be boosted by different Chemistry styles if you want.

Shooting: With 85 finishing and 87 shot power, shots inside the box are guaranteed goals from him. Surprisingly his long shots are bullets and also amazing. Just trigger the L1 run and make him get near the box somehow and press the O button, the goals will follow.

Passing: He has been given a vision of 84, with short and long passes as 88 and 85 respectively which this card gives justice to those stats. Paulinho hardly misses a pass and will provide crucial passes in game with improvised vision.

Dribbling: A small drawback this card has is the dribbling. His Agility and Balance are low stats wise. But in game he feels better on the ball and doesn't give the truck feeling as he has 88 ball control and 85 composure.

Pace, Passing and dribbling can be improved by using Engine Chemistry. But I use Basic since it improves other game stats too.

Defending: Interceptions are exceptional as he cuts passing lanes brilliantly. His standing tackles are very good as the ball sticks to his feet after tackling. Has low def awareness and slide tackle which I didn't feel as a con in game. Although, they can be improved using chem.

Physical: Biggest Pro of the card is his physical. Runs all game with 96 stamina and wins most of the headers with 96 jumping. With 85 strength he shields the ball very well and doesn't lose them to other defenders and Cdm's who try to intercept. He also nudges out players with the 84 aggression of his.

That player picture says more than a 1000 words

Like the title says, the player picture of Paulinho where he shows his tongue pretty much sums up Paulinho for you. Its like having Kante who can pass, out strength your opponent & shoot on your team & costs only 150k, even less if you have high overall players in your team. I would say absolute bargain. And hes not even that hard to link with as hes Brazilian. But to give you a better perspective of this card lets ...

Okay so this is my first review, but let me tell you one thing. DO THIS SBC!. First game, I flicked the ball over Scream Pique and blasted it past Ter Stagen and that's when I knew I had to do this review. Although he only scored 3 goals in the 10 games I played with him, he was playing right CDM with my Pep at left CDM. They complement each other so well. Pep does the dirty work and Paulinho distributes. I used to play Vid...
