So it goes without saying that he is one of, if not the, best CB in FIFA 20. I got him as my red pick and played over 350 games with him in CB and there isn't any flaw that I can point out.
I was lucky to pack Diego Carlos from my deluxe pack, but he did not fit in my team as i got Ramos and 92 Maldini from Icon Swaps. From the reviews I read, I feel that Diego Carlos is just too good a player for me to not use. So after a little experimenting with formations and tactics, I start of with 5-2-2-1 formation, starting Ramos, Maldini and Diego Carlos as CB and switch to 4-2-3-1 in game, moving Ramos as a CDM with stay back while attacking instruction.
I first had my doubt playing a CB in a CDM position, I was afraid he would feel too clunky and couldn't contribute in attacking. But I can assure anyone with the same doubts, that this is not the case at all. He is a true beast at CDM, he will dominate the middle of the pitch for you. He helps immensely with the defending in the middle of the pitch, he wins aerial battles and would overpower almost anyone. He will make your opponents struggle real hard breaking through from the middle. He is big, yet agile and can keep up with also almost anyone. I could literally have the David Luiz who played against City as my CB and with Ramos as a CDM, I would probably still be able to keep clean sheets. In terms of defending, he makes Maldini's and Diego Carlos's job a lot easier.
With the Engine chem style, his passes the ball really well. I would say he does an excellent job contributing while attacking as well. His shooting might be the only problem but I did score some goals with him and his 92 shot power definitely helps.
I think his biggest value is the presence he makes in the middle of the pitch, he completely dominates here. I cannot stop iterating how good he is in intercepting passes, breaking counter attacks, run back to help defend, and yet still does a more than a decent job contributing in attack. All in all i would say he is top class and would probably improve any team.
- Big and agile
- 3* weak foot sometimes makes him misplace passes but is not a deal breaker for me.
