Dries Mertens - 89 - CL TOTT
4.5
Belgium Messi
By Callmerichards, 15-12-2019

I bought this card because his stats caught my attention due to his 90 Pace and 92 Dribbling. I tried this card in 12 games as an ST (10 Fut champs games) and Mertens has scored 19 goals and has 6 Assists. So far he has been very good and reminds me of Messi due to his dribbling ability and inside of the box finesse shots and his passing. His shooting is near Messi level but just lacks a bit to be at that level. He has 90 Pace not really much to say other than yeah he is fast. He has good Passing ability and from how he plays at ST I think he would work wonders at CAM and honestly, this card is very versatile as I believe he'd probably be able to play ST, CAM, LW, and RW. With all of that being said I have explained his pro's but let's talk about his cons. Physicality isn't important in Fifa 20 as having 60 Strength + Aggression would be fine but his physicality is so low (40 Strength) that once he has someone trying to put their shoulder on him he gets intercepted almost 7/10 times. This is one of the stats that I think really sticks out. (This is what distances him from being Messi class or on that level).

From Gold 3 Player to Gold 1/Elite 3

I was saving all my coins in the beginning of FIFA to buy this card as my main man next to first Kai Havertz and later the Havertz IF, however by the time I had those 280k, he rose alreay up to 340k and was extinct... So I was longly thinking if he would be worth the 400k which I had to spend in the end for a fresh one and boy, I dont regret it at all <3 He scores from all positions, he is so agile and fast that his stre...

Hard one...

Mertens can easily score when put in the correct position but if faced against any strong defenders he will struggle.He will be pushed off the ball 9/10 with the 1/10 being if you get a lucky bounce.

Clutchest Striker I have tried

I've tried every Mertens cards this year and they all are amazing but this one is top tier. He is so fast and agile. Don't pay attention to his 41 strength, he feels more like a 65-70 strength, he is pretty hard to catch and he can fight. His 77 stamina won't bother at ST but maybe at CAM. 700k is a bargain and he is easy to link with Serie A players like ...
