Rodrigo Battaglia - 84 - SBC
absolute steal
By Novatrix10, 05-12-2019

I did this guy, hoping to play him alongside IF Wijnaldum, on 8 chem linking to my Red IF Telles, and I was suprised. Just saying, I am no pro, but I hit elite 3 last weekend, arguably the worst weekend for me in terms of gameplay, but I played with him across the week in div 4, doing icon swaps. His stats off the bat already look insanely insane for an 84 card, but I was nervous whether he'd play to those stats.

Absolute baller. He definitely plays to his stats, if not, better. He absolutely bossed the midfield, with his defensive and physical stats, but also could playmake with his passing and control over the ball. Before him, I adored Sissoko. I genuinely thought that for the price, there could be nobody better than Sissoko - he played like a vieira for me, but my god Battaglia showed his class. I would 1000% recommend him if you can link em.

Play him a cdm/ cm in a 2 dm formation, but u could play him 41212 not too sure. Also, chem style is subjective. Id say shadow,engine,guardian,anchor but really u choose.

Pace - For a CDM with 83 Pace, jeez, thats rapid. He plays to those stats and is able to manoeuvre around the pitch.

Passing - Though 80, his long and short passing and vision are insane. Didn't misplace a pass.

Defending - absolute rock and a half. as good as some of the best, more defensive dm's. so clean in the tackle.

Shooting - He scored 7 from 8 games, as a cdm with med/high workrates. My god. Fine, i was in div 4, and shooting on this game is so trash, but he can really have a crack,

especially with that shot power.

Physicals - Exceptional stamina and aggression, contributing to his ability to break up the play.

Dribbling - Though his quite low agility and balance, which i didn't upgrade via chem style, he felt reallly good on the ball, the ball control, reactions, composure and dribbling on point.

Nothing. Ok, let me be nit-picky

Agility and Balance - i just said that he was class on the ball, but maybe if gameplay is diabolical or you're not into stocky cdm's, fine. i didn't use a

Strength - realistically, he feels really strong, helped by the agression. but he doesn't have that natural strength. but that really aint a problem at all. Its maybe because I'm used to a sissoko.

Best midfielder in the game?

Best midfielder in the game? The answer may NOT surprise you. when i saw this card popping up i was instantly hyped. Altough he goes for 230k on futbin i completed the SBC for 40k-70k, which isn't a bad deal for this player.I used inform Acuna (which I also wrote a review about), but couldn't link him with very much players, bruno fernandes was almost the only option. Acuna and Battaglia have a perfect link so they w...

I am typically a FUT player who sticks to the PL as A) Im a big Liverpool supporter and B) its the league I'm most familiar with having watched all the matches. Well this year I decided to venture out and try to steer clear of the premier league and the "generic" FUT squads you come across all the time. Having played my first weekend league recently I was wanting to rejig my squad and decided to see if I would get good pack...
