Player Review

92 - CL TOTT

Game Changer
By ColbyKane, 17-12-2019

I'll start by saying that each year I start my FUT journey to getting Lewandowski, he's the perfect ST for my playstyle. I play a 4-4-1-1 or a 4-2-3-1 depending how the game flows but suffice to say I always use Lewa as a lone ST so this review will be coming from that perspective. I can't speak to how he performs in a system that utilizes two ST but he's not going to be the type of player to chase down spammy through balls. Even with the upgrades to pace, Lewa simply isn't the kind of player to use "get in behind" you'll need to set him to "target man" or "false 9" in the instructions tab. Personally, I use him as a target man with Hawk chemstyle. He's already got great physicals but the bump in physicality + pace is nuts (98 jumping, 93 strength, 86/86 accel. speed). We all know heading is a joke in this game but I've found that the short, sort of lob crosses from fairly close range, can have success.


I pair Lewa at ST with Eden Hazard at CAM and with Lewa holding up the ball and Hazard's runs beyond him it's simply lethal. Whether you use the close range lob cross or a simple cutback pass to Lewa, if you can get the ball to Lewa's feet, it's a goal simple as that. As of this writing, Lewa's got 62 goals and 20 assists in 57 games, all in Div 5 Rivals and WL. The one drawback to Lewa's game is the relatively low agility (81) so he's not the quickest to turn but he's got excellent ball control and dribbling to make up for that (as well as 4*/4*).

  • Clinical in front of goal with either foot - I genuinely feel like his WF could be 5* adding a layer of unpredictability you won't find in many other elite-tier ST
  • Combination of holdup play, physicality, pace (with chemstyle) and in particular SHOOTING is unmatched
  • 4*/4*
  • Incredible positioning play to get on the end of rebounds or find the sliver of space against the drop back teams
  • Links - I run a Bayern hybrid so it's easier for me but I'd suggest getting the POTM Gnabry or Scream Muller to fit Lewa in. You won't regret building around him
  • Pace/agility if you're that type of player. You can add an Engine chemstyle to get his dribbling to near-elite but you'll still be missing the elite pace. Don't try to fit a square peg in a round hole

What is even his card

Where do i even start. He has everything you need on a striker, pluss some extra. I packed him in a 2 player pack, and i have only played like 10 games with him, but he is incredible. He is fast, really good shooting, really good dribling, and insane physical. He scores every time im inside the box, and almost everytime outside. He is one of my favourite cards in this game by far.

What a Card!!

So I was lucky enough to pack this guy in an untradeable pack. First, let me tell you about some strikers I have used so far. I tried R7 and base R9. Both were good if you have fast wingers and good CAM. Otherwise, they could not create a lot of chances and make runs into the goal especially in DIV2 or WL. After I got Lewandowski, I used him in several positions. In 442 I used him as a left striker besides Ben yedder. He wa...

A Monster Striker

Lewandowski this year almost feels like a cheat code, he is just truly amazing to play with and super easy to score goals with him as well. He is banging in goals every match and I cant express how good he really is. I am not a very good fifa player and this early with people having low rated team maybe making him look too good but I just cant make out any flaws in this card. First of al...
