- Latest FUT 20 reviews by the community
I used him as Cam and found that catalyst was his best chemistry so he is faster. He is great if he runs further up the pitch to assist my 92 Benzema so they can both alternate as to who is in front. He also has great crossing, free kicks and penalties.
A bit slow without pace boosting chemistry type.
When I first saw the Rodrigo SBC, my first response was WOW a new Premier League Striker, that could be fun, glad to see Leeds United in the Premier League. Then when I came back to reality and realized that Leeds is still considered a Championship level squad for FIFA 20, I was a bit reluctant to complete the SBC, ESPECIALLY when it costs an 85 rated Squad to complete.
But hey, it's September, we've got to make our own fun in the game at this point, so I rolled up my sleeves with my zero fodder and had a bit of luck with a few 82-88 rated packs and was able to get him complete. It also gave me the opportunity to craft a completely new team which is my main fun left in the game. This finally gave me the opportunity to try out the TOTS Kalvin Phililps card and it is nice that such a high powered card is a strong link for the new Rodrigo. It definitely makes the link options a little bit more manageable.
Before we go further, let me tell you a little bit about my skill level since I think that is important to know where a review is coming from. I am a Division 1 player who is an Elite weekend league player when I can find the time or desire to play the games. (It's been hard to find that desire in FIFA 20) - Also, shameless plug, but I would love if anyone would check out my YouTube channel petedaddy as I work to grow that. A video review of Rodrigo will be there soon.
Back to the review...I decided to use an Engine chemistry style, because it makes his pace a perfect 99, and it helps to boost his dribbling stats. This appears to be the consensus chem style according to futbin.
I am playing Rodrigo in a 4-2-3-1, and tested him out as Striker, central CAM and RAM.
I truly enjoyed playing Rodrigo as a Striker. He had 2 goals in his debut match, and seemed to finish whatever I gave him. He was a strong presence in the box and his movement seemed nice once he had the ball in a scoring position inside the box.
The second game with Rodrigo, I tested him out as central CAM as I wanted to see what he would do as I asked more of him, and I will say I did not really enjoy Rodrigo as a central CAM. His passing was a little off even with the boosts from the Engine chem style and he felt a little stiff even though he has the lean body type. The game play wasn't the best so that could be the culprit, or it could just be where he is a little taller and it takes taller players a little longer to get going in FIFA 20 unfortunately. He did score a goal as CAM, but it was basically a tap in, but you still have to credit him for getting in the right position.
The third game with Rodrigo, I tested him out as RAM, and I feel this may be his best position if you are trying to work him into more of a high level team. I can't say that Rodrigo would replace any of the high level strikers that we see all of the time, but his pace and strength make him suited for running down the wing.
With that said, I wouldn't rate him over some of the other options such as Dembele or Saint-Maximin, but I would say RAM is Rodrigo's ideal position in a high level team, and Striker is his ideal position in a fun team.
Overall, I would give him 10/10 for fun. It was great to create a new team and try out some new players, however I would give him an 8.5/10 for actual pure ability in game.
- BURIES HIS CHANCES
- GETS INTO GOOD POSITIONS IN ATTACK
- MOVED WELL INSIDE BOX
- FELT A LITTLE STIFF IN POOR GAME PLAY
- PASSING FELT OFF
- NOT QUITE GOD TIER
- HEIGHT MAKES HIS ACCELERATION NOT FEEL LIKE 99
- 85 RATED SQUAD COST
Just wanna say first I did some sbc's so that's why I have like Mcginn and Shoji. This card dominates for me. I mainly only play rivals and will do the occasional squad battle to do objectives. He has really good pace especially for a center mid. He has 5 star skill 4 star weak foot. He has pretty good finishing and really good dribbling. For my free kicks I normally have Sane's 96 but if it is on the wrong side then Pogba will do a job for you. He has good long shots and his stats are really good all round.?
Pace: For me I have a shadow on him. Even though this was an accident this was a good choice. With a shadow he has 97 pace, 94 acceleration, and 99 sprint speed. He is rapid and he can get into the box really easy with that pace.
Shooting: He finishes most shots and has good attacking position. 93 shooting for overall shooting and this is pretty accurate in how his shooting is. He scores a lot of goals especially for a CM. He has just great all round shooting.
Passing: His passing stats are not fair. 97 vision, 95 short accuracy, and 99 long accuracy. He will find almost any pass and can fit in almost any ball.
Dribbling: He does only have 83 acceleration and 91 reactions but his 99 ball control, 97 dribbling, and 97 composure make up for that. He can dribble past almost any defender that I have came up against.
Defending: Even though Pogba is known as an attacking CM he has good defensive stats like 94 stand tackle and 97 heading accuracy. He wins about 50% of defensive duels.
Physicality: He even has good physicality. He will win about 50% percent of battles and has 94 stamina with 96 strength.
Overall: In the 13 games I've played with him he has been brilliant. 100% if you have the money you should buy.
The sbc might be a little bit out of some budgets and if you need defensive CM he might not be the best option, unless you use a shadow.
Soooooo... so many options, so many good cards!! My level 15 pick would be Costa, hands down... I know he has 78 Finishing.. but with a deadeye it is boosted to a decent finishing stat. His passes are sublime, the links are godly, the pace is boosted to outrageous levels and that 5*4* feels slick on the ball. Given the amount of times i've lost an irritatingly close game, costa is the help i needed. First game he's brought on, he scores 2 and assists 1 to messi and turns around a 2-0 loss. My recommendation? Take him. Ik Nagbe has better stats but after using him, i can say I have ZERO regrets after using Costa
SM AND WF
He's a midfielder! What are you doing!? NOOO!!
Hear me out. He doesnt work for me in midfield. He disappears... No other word for it.. Lad barely makes a pass the entire game.. He just......... exists on the pitch.
Slap on an engine and put him in front of goal and he takes to it like a duck to water. 22 goals and 17 assists in 20 games put this lad as the biggest rise in assists in my vlub. The 4*4* helps, and certainly, his BEAST shooting is amplified. My recommendation? Use him as an ST, preferably with TOTS Haaland as parter since they both are on fire together (i've written a review on him as well, go check it out). Haaland's lethal finishing is brilliantly complemented by Reus' cheeky passes and close finishes. You need to score a banger? Take Haalnd. You need to dribble past 4 opponents, skill them back to hell, and chip the keeper? Reus is your man
