Hey guy it's me again! Since I blasted all my power into the Coman review (make sure to check that out) I'll try to make things short for this one.
Roussillon is actually a pretty solid option for the LB position, especially if you need that french link for a Bundesliga Hybrid! Other than that theres already Mendy, which is by far the best LB out there, but if you need the Bundesliga Links as mentioned above or simply are a fan of him or Wolfsburg theres no really no reason you should not play him! I use Davies most of the time and I have to say theyre on the same level at least. Of Course he doesn't even have the 4*WF but since hes left footed thats not a big deal. Skill moves are not so much needed as well, since you don't have to fake rabona your way out from the back (some might do that, but I guess most of us won't).
I suggest you give the Anchor Chemistry Style to maximize his pace and defending/physical stats - and he really feels solid ingame, doesn't get caught out of position and even if he would, I'm sure he could catch up with almost anyone. His passes get to where they should and his Dribbling is fine, not as good as Davies' but he still feels smooth ingame. I really liked him and will probably continue to switch between him and Davies. Since hes free don't forget to do him, you never know when you might need him and even if not hes still a 92 rated french LB you can throw into that David Luiz SBC :P

Pace, defending/physical stats, dribbling, passing
3*WF, (slightly) better options
Many people will say this card is pointless due to Mendy, but you should all give him a go. I am planning to play him at CB, but i played him at LB so he can be on full chem for the review. I would give him an ANCHOR chemistry style because he only has 94 acceleration, and everyone has 99 pace these days.
Pace - 99 pace cannot be faulted, and it shows ingame.
Shooting - Sure, his shooting isn't necessarily GOOD, but it is good for a LB.
Passing - Crossing is fantastic, doesn't misplace many short, long or cross-field passes.
Dribbling - Not clunky, doesn't lose control of the ball, can beat players too.
Defending - Always tough in the tackle and doesn't do sponge tackles often.
Physical - 89 physical is good for a LB, and it goes up to 93 with an anchor. He can jump, win headers, barge people off the ball, all that good stuff.
Stamina - 95 is enough to last 90 minutes. No real ingame difference between Mendy's 99 and roussillon's 95.
Nothing that really matters for a right-back. I guess the 3*/3* could put some people off, but the weak foot doesn't show, and I don't skill with my full backs.

Quick reveiw here: (12 games played) At the time of writing this, you can still get this card, and you should. He is very easy (I do not sweat) and i got him in about 3 hours. His pace is top tier, and he is the fastest player ingame that i have used all year. He is strong in the tackle, and is very often playing like a dynamic (5 at the back) left-back. His work rates are fantastic, and for the price (0) i would say that he is not just fodder, he is better than the mendy even on 7 (or 8) chem like I used him on. if you use him as fodder for David Luiz, Lenglet ect, then you are missing out on (in my opinion) the best left-back in years that i have used. He will catch up to any winger, even 98 mbappe.
Can be tempting to use as fodder
AATENTION! First i want to help some of you players that feel like the game is boring you at this stage of the game. Try to find inspiration from FIFA youtube challenges. I started my 3rd road to glory. i decided to sell my whole team. I was left with 13 mil Coins and decided to start new. I discarded Mendy and Mbabu together with my Untradeable Headliner Neymar (i got very fuckign lucky and i'm sorry) I decided to take inspiration from Fatal challenge on youtube where every goal i score i get a certain amount of coins that i can spend on a player or sbc.
Now to the review
I used Anchor on him and he was on 6 chem. I didn't like mendy as i didn't feel his aggression and speed (mostly acceleration) anywhere on the field so i decide to grind this card for my RTG.
Pace 10/10: A fucking Mazing. He runs so fucking quick and his acceleration is top tier. He catches up to everybody and he is wihtout a doubt faster than Mendy and Mbabu. He caught up to Super sub Daniel James and Super sub Kubo. As you know the super sub Kubo cheese doesn't work on Roussillon. Kubo can never get past Roussillon when doing a fake shot around the corner. He catches up to you and oushes you of the ball. As a Fullback i didn't expect his interceptions and defensive awarenes to be amazingly good too but because he is so small, fast and aggressive he does it just like Kante.
Finishing: Don't even worry bout it.....Don't even worry bout it. This that splah
Passing 9/10: His passing was very average but i didn't really like that he sometimes put a lot of curve into the long ground passes because sometimes i play a slow and strong winger just to help myself set the tempo of the game BUT when i have Daniel James or Vinicius Jr on the wing i love how he passes them the ball but i just sometimes want to be able to control when to put a lot of curve into it. He has contributed to 8 goals by making that kind of pass.
Dribbling 8/!0: I can't talk a lot about his dribbling. His ball control is very good but his composure is average and this is where Mendy and Mbabu are better. When his composure is set to play his size doens't help it either. He makes some stupid passes because of the composure and when the opponent team presses he can sometimes lose the ball. most of the times he makes a lob through ball to the winger.
Defending 10/10: Just INCREDIBLE. Never expected him to be my favourite Fullback. He is just amazing and he can definetely play a CDM role if you want him to be. Ylu can for example Put Summer Heat Lukaku as a LB and put Roussillon as a CDM. He is just amazing because of his very agile playstyle. he is a complete replication of Kante but just better. He tackles the ball like a god and he can overthrow a big guy like TOTSSF rashford off the ball.
Physicality 10/10: Some people might think "How can he be 10/10 when he is so small?" but the truth is that because of his size he is extra aggressive. Just like Leibold his size is an advantage. He is the most aggressive Fullback i have ever played with. He is also very strong and he is not afraid to do everything he can to win the 50/50 chances. Very Rarely he loses those chances but he is VERY quick to get back to position and catch up to the player.
CDM 9/10: only play him as CDM if you need a kante and have another CDM that is tall and strong. Also play him ther eif you want to experiment with your team
CB 7/10: Too small even though he is strong and aggressive. He is way too aggressive and will foul the player inside the box even without pressing the tackle button. Once again a showcase of his amazingly aggressive and agile playstyle.
RB 9/10: He can play right back but the passe will not be as good as on the LB. Also when he is pressured his passing bcomes even worse than when playing on the left side.
CM 6/10: DO NOT PLAY HIM THERE! He isn't even fun to play with as a CM. He can't shoot as you already know and he only has 3* 3* meaning he can't pass with his right foot and he can't make skill moves which i use a lot. His composure is also very low for a CM.
LW 8/10: Suprisingly good but again if he would be a 9/10 he needs to have better finishing and if he wants to become a 10/10 LW he needs to have better shooting and dribbling but not agility and balance because they are amazing already even though they don't show that on the card.
All in all as a LB he is 10/10 without a question but the answer to the question "IS HE BETTER THAN MENDY AND MBABU?" then YES HE IS. I can't feel the pace when is play with Mbabu and Mendy and i can't feel the aggression on Mendy and Mbabu.
Passing on the strong foot
God Like Aggression
Small Size (helps him become a beast imo
Sometimes wayyyy too aggressive inside the box
Hi this is my first review, so don't be too harsh.
I used Roussillon at the start of the year, so I was expecting greatness when I got him for free, but he hasn't been that great. I've used Mendy for the most of FIFA 20 and even his 80 rated card was great. Now let's jump into the review. I played him in a 4-1-2-1-2 (1) ingame and there are a couple of issues with him. For starters, med/high work rates aren't great for a full back especially considering Roussillon's good defensive stats, compared to maybe the 87 Mendy. His crossing is very good, but unfortunately crosses are terrible in this game so that's a useless pro about him. He sometimes feels slow, so I'd recommend boosting his agility and balance. I like that he gets a strong link with the 93 coman or the 88 lucas hernandez, so he can fit in most teams. Overall I was expecting more from him, considering that you only had to play some rivals games to get the 89 Mendy, whilst for Roussillon you had to get crosses with max 3* wf (some might find squad battles boring, but I'd recommend doing it there; for the crosses I used 93 Coman).
- Value for money
- med/high work rates (some people might like them)
- 3* skills/ 3* weak foot (89 Mendy has 5*/5*)
