Lucas - 83 - Normal

checks all the meta boxes

Packed him in my starter packs and plugged him in as a ST in 4321 and CCAM in 4231. Very quick on the ball, agile in tight spaces and making cuts with outstanding runs. He's been very good on the counter getting behind defenders and the 4* skills are especially important this year with manual defending. He's a good finisher for this stage in the game. I bought Jesus (always a favorite) but thought he was disappointing compared to prior years. Pricey at the moment but all good players (especially PL) are going to be inflated the first month. Overall really loved the card. If you can't afford KDB or Eriksen (or don't love Eriksen's pace) then I think Lucas is the best PL CAM imho.

Pace. Just hugely important this year especially with counterattacks and through balls being more OP.

Skills. A 4* or above is a huge advantage especially early because so many players are uncomfortable manual defending.

Shooting. For the beginning of the game his finishing is pretty good at a cheaper price than most OP PL attackers.

Agility. He's drawn a lot of fouls weaving around defenders coupled with sloppy defending with many players not adjusting from AI defending yet.

Links. PL and Brazil always nice.


His passing is just Ok for a CAM but just fine if you play him at ST. I used Deadeye and personally not a big deal.

Low strength but it has not been a huge problem so far, his agility lets you work around tight defenders and draw fouls.

Lucas Moura -- Is he worth it?

So, first I'd like to say that the star ratings are completely disregarded here as I do not find them an acceptable way to gauge a player's value. To those who simply looked at the lackluster star rating, felt dis-encouraged by it, and promptly left--I'm sorry. Also, this will not be short, as I have not nailed brevity well. If you feel like you should not invest a ton of time in reading a Futbin review, I completely unders...

Lucas Moura - the fastest hare

Hi mates, for this weekend league I used Lucas Moura shape-shifter 87 as a center forward in the 4-4-2 with Ben Yedder and I had a great time. In the first games many opponents did not know that he was left-handed in this version and therefore was deadly with his left foot. But later on, despite the difficulty of the matches, he alway...

Spurs Savior

Where to start guys... I am a huge Spurs fan. I remember watching the Spurs vs. Ajax game live, I was sold on the fact that we were going out. We all know the story, Lucas essentially inhales Messi in Kirby-like fashion, spits him out and goes on a rampage, banging in 3 goals with his left to save the game and send us into the CL final where we would end up playing abysmally to a fantastic Liverpool side. I knew this car...
