I bought this card because his stats caught my attention due to his 90 Pace and 92 Dribbling. I tried this card in 12 games as an ST (10 Fut champs games) and Mertens has scored 19 goals and has 6 Assists. So far he has been very good and reminds me of Messi due to his dribbling ability and inside of the box finesse shots and his passing. His shooting is near Messi level but just lacks a bit to be at that level. He has 90 Pace not really much to say other than yeah he is fast. He has good Passing ability and from how he plays at ST I think he would work wonders at CAM and honestly, this card is very versatile as I believe he'd probably be able to play ST, CAM, LW, and RW. With all of that being said I have explained his pro's but let's talk about his cons. Physicality isn't important in Fifa 20 as having 60 Strength + Aggression would be fine but his physicality is so low (40 Strength) that once he has someone trying to put their shoulder on him he gets intercepted almost 7/10 times. This is one of the stats that I think really sticks out. (This is what distances him from being Messi class or on that level).
Versatility can play many positions
This Mertens card has been so nice to play with. He is very agile and his shooting is awesome. His passing is also very good. I have played him next to Ronaldo and he made so many assists to him. It's such an upgrade from his standard gold card and I would definitely recommend you guys to buy him if you have considered doing it. You won't get disappointed...
Feels very fast while running with the ball
Very good passer, feels like a lot more than 84
Awesome shooting, scores everything
Feels like a cheaper Messi
Good price for such a nice card
Strength in duels
All i know in the beginning of a FIFA is that Dries Mertens is going to be in my starting 11. For me he is by far the best player i have used the past 3 or 4 fifa's straight. I always want the best card of him in my squad at all cost and after using his inform and his normal card in the beginning of FIFA 20 for around 300 to 400 games I was really happy that he got another even better card with a nice upgrade. I immediately took the loss on his inform card and bought his TOTGS for 467k and he is absolutly worth every single coin. His dribbling together with his pace are his biggest strength and with his 96 agility, 94 balance and 93 dribbling (without a chemistry style) he easily dribbles past every defender even with the slowest gameplay. But with a +3 upgrade on his shooting and now having 91 finishing and 92 positioning combined with his finesse shot trait made this guy a god tier finisher aswell.
I play almost every WL and usually get gold 1. I'am in division 3.
-Finishes everything inside and outside the box
-Can be used as striker and as CAM
-Can strike with both his feet (4* weak foot)
-Faster than light
-Still usable with lag
-strength (but his dribbling and pace definitly hide this)
-Stamina (he isn't going to play 120 minutes in WL for you)
