Lionel Messi - 94 - Normal
5.0
Why Messi could be the pinnacle of FIFA 20
By mhoff28, 24-09-2019

Messi feels like the most complete Attacker in the game. Unbelievable Ball control, pace, passing, and shooting. He slots in perfectly to the META of this current FIFA. In previous versions his size and physical stats inhibited him, but not this time around. Its very hard to lose the ball with him and when playing a possession style of play he dominates. Seems like a no brainer to say if you have the chance, buy this card!

Pace - This is the lowest its ever been in FUT for Messi. But that doesn't stop him from feeling extremely fast. His acceleration is still above 90 and it shows when you're in game.


Shooting - All around fantastic. Exactly what you would expect from a card like this. Take as many chances as you can because he seems to slot in some crazy shots you would never expect. Finesse shots feels great and so do his power shots.


Passing - This could be one of the best passing Messi's when it comes to his base card and it shows. He is great for playing a one two through the middle and sets up some great assists when on the counter.


Dribbling - This is where his card shines, its almost impossible to lose the ball with him. Although you should never say never, he is extremely hard to dispossess if you can get a good grasp at this editions dribbling. Ball control matched with his acceleration he can hold the ball in tight and burn a defender when he gets the space he needs. All around one of the most fun dribblers in recent FIFA.

Physical - His stats here are low and there are times that his low strength inhibits him. But in this FIFA i dont think its as much as a priority, it is something to keep in mind tho.


I would have loved to seem him at 5* WF but its not too noticeable.


As of now his stamina is around 75, its not terrible and doesnt affect him too much but you can definitely tell he gets tired on the pitch.

Best Dribbler of the game
By Sauvageot, 23-09-2019

I got Messi in my second 20K fifa points at the start of ea acces. I went crazy and couldn't believe it! Just like last year. I changed my squad form PL/BL(https://www.futbin.com/20/squad/8301641) to PL/LAliga(https://www.futbin.com/20/squad/8301739).

Messi is just the best dribbler in the game. Messi does not feel that fast and i need to get used to the fifa 20 finishing with Messi. his finesse shots are great like Arjen Robben stile, Cutting in form the right and finess far post. but like you expect he can win headers agaings weak defenders/midfielders. Not scored a free kick yet.


Not worth 1.1 Mil against quad battles. online he certainly is of gr8 value.


Please comment what chem style i need to put on him. I got no clue.


I also made a review on him last year: https://www.futbin.com/19/review/6219/Lionel%20Messi/player

  • Quick and very sensetive dribbler.
  • Best finesse shots in the game.
  • Can win headers sometmes.?
  • Wins loads of 50/50's around the box due to reactions.
  • Faster than many CB's.
  • Gr8 passer of the ball.
  • Not fast enough for fifa 20 fullbacks.
  • His pricetag of 1.1 Mil just for Squad battles is to much.
  • His heigt can sometimes be a let down but crosses in fifa 20 are shit so no need for headers.
