Thiago - 93 - TOTS
4.0
finally thiago is usable!
By Jacquesadoodle, 24-04-2020

So today i decided to use Thiago in my WL just to test him out, and this is my conclusions after 30 games in an elite 3 finish.

he is pretty good value as he is only around 160k which for some of his stats is a steal.

He played cdm alongside birthday bakayoko, in a 4231 with a shadow chemstyle.

feeks really similar to PIM Pirlo but obviously a lot better value

pros are that: he intercepts alot (which is expected with 93 interceptions. His dribbling is unreal one of the best cards on the ball I've ever used and goes really well with 5* skills.

passing is also really good can pinpoint a pass from anywhere on the pitch to any distance like a prime xavi.

shooting is ok but nothing unexpected, can finish basic chances but can be a bit unreliable in front of goal.

pace is really good with shadow but is a bit unnecessary as he already has 88 acclereration. maybe use powerhouse or sentinel instead.

defending can seem a bit transparent at some points and messes up quite a few tackles, but can also make some good tackles and completely change the game controlling the midfield.

he feels very weak on the ball and can be pushed off quite easily by a player with high strength like Viera or other big midfielders.

Low aggresion also causes him not to get as stuck in to some tackles as he should.

Thiago Award Winner Review

I used this card in a 41212 narrow setup. I really loved his left stick dribbling around defenders and his ability to switch the play to the other side of the pitch. The weak foot upgrade to 4 star was really helpful with his ability to pass and shoot and it helped me feel more comfortable taking shots with his weak foot. Although he doesn't have the Finesse Shot Trait his finesses are very clean. He reminds me of a Coutinh...

Quality Card - Thiago is useable!

Thiago is genuinely a cracking plur after this recent upgrade. He is now 93 rated and has an extremely usable card, both in stats and links. Firstly, his links are great - there are plenty of bayern munich special cards you can strong link him with in different formations, Boateng FB, Goretzka Moments, Lewandowski headliner - even Alphonso Davies / Kimmich's Moments cards if you have them. He also offers nice soft links int...

What a player!

This is my first review so I apologise if I miss anything. I am a casual Div 3/4, Gold 1 player :)I needed a CDM to link to my Kimmich player moments and Ramos player moments and this Thiago card slotted in perfectly. I play him as a balanced CDM in the 4-2-2-2 with a shadow (next to Ramos). For the price of just 110k I picked up this card and put him straight into my team for Weekend league. In my first g...
