When I first bought this Tevez card I was pretty sceptical because of the fact he has quite a stocky presence in game, I needed a CAM for my team and thought I'd give him a go alongside TOTS Salvio, TOTS Griezmann and SS Ribery. I slapped an engine chem style on him to boost his 91 sprint speed and dribbling stats to compensate for his stocky build. Let's get into this...
Where he is very short and with the maxed out acceleration, once he broke the defensive line, there was no catching him, I'd recommend boosting his sprint speed because nowadays, 95+ is very much a neccessity.
This was the one I was most worried about with this card, I thought the agility and balance stats on this card were going to be a lie, but boy was I wrong, even in shit gameplay this guy could turn defenders inside out and his ball control is also super juiced which allows for Tevez to use left stick dribbling to get out of tight situations.
Not much to say about this other than FUCKING UNREAL. Power is on point and the fact that he both the finesse shot trait AND the outside of the foot shot means that when the ball falls to him on his left foot, he tries to use the outside of his right and my god he was consistent at hitting the net. 37 goals in 30 games of sweaty fut champs speaks for itself really.
Who gives a flying fuck? To be fair to the lad if you play him as a CAM on come back on defence he uses his strength very well to get between the player and the ball and is actually fairly capable of putting in some juicy challenges with his 99 aggression. He doesn't intercept anything because he has the shortest legs you've ever seen lol.
29 assists in 30 fut champs games is also very good, he's able to pick out passes all over the field so no complaints from me in this department.
Is the 99 strength a lie? To be honest, I think it is. When he comes up against the usual VVD's and the Varane's, most of the team you feel like you may as well be using fucking insigne, I'd say he'd hold off tall players with around 87 strength but anything above that he does get pretty bullied so try to avoid any shoulder to shoulder battles with the big boys. Stamina is also quite a let down at the stage of the game, 84 is alright if you're playing him out wide or up top but as a CAM you'd need to sub him off around the 75th minute as he may start to feel a little sluggish.
4* 4* - no complaints from me, obviously a 5* weakfoot is the real meta in this game but the outside of the foot shot means he has a special animation to avoid using his left when possible
H/L workrates - perfect perfect perfect. Holds his position very well especially with the cracking attacking positioning.
So, I'm a lucky person. I manage to get Silver 1 and this beast of a player, Carlos Tevez, pops out. This card has to be one of the Top 10 Overpowered Strikers I have used this FIFA and that means a lot since there is a lot of DDA, Script and other rigged stuff in the game to prevent you from winning easy games. Once you look at the statistics on this card, you would expect him to be above average due to lack of jumping for a striker, but with 80 Jumping after applying a Marksman, it feels like he has 90 jumping. I play 4-2-3-1 in game with Payet and Salvio as my wide CAM's, Laudrup at CAM and Tevez as the striker. If you have the coins from packing insane players or you got him in your reds, I would highly recommend him playing him in the starting 11.
Amazing Finesse Shot
Amazing Passing Stats for a ST
Dribbling like Messi
Strength and Aggression like TOTY Virgil Van Dijk
84 Stamina, if you abuse pace a lot
70 Jumping, if you don't apply a chemistry style that increases his jumping
I got him in my red picks and I was really excited to use him as he has a great card.I'm not a great fifa player but he helped me reacht gold 2 in a weekend full of struggles. He played as a right striker in 4-2-2-2 next to my tots messi (who'm I've also reviewed) and he really just played great in my opinion.
- pace: once he is sent through and is behind the defenders they won't catch him up.
- shooting: he will always find himself in a good position to take a shot and most of the times he'll hit the net. And btw, his finesses and outside foot shoots are op af.
- passing: he has very good passing and because of that he provided many assists.
- dribbling: he can turn really quickly and he keeps the ball very close to him so that'll make him glirch through the defence sometimes.
- physical: the card says he got 99 strength but it feels more like 85-90 which is also not bad. His agression is also 99 which I can feel sometimes as he will recover the ball quickly after he lost it.
- defending: who cares??
- physical: his stamina isn't really great (84)
- his height
