I WANTED T0 POINT OUT AT FIRST, I AM NOT A GRIEZMANN FAN.
I am writing this review after using Aguero, Auba, Son, Suarez, POTM Vardy and Lacazette.
I am just amazed at the hidden gems in this card, because oh boy !!! his card stats definitely DONT do justice to him in game.
I was lucky enough to pick up a Hunter chem Griezman, with acceleration 92 and sprint speed. So let me start with his:
I have used 90+ PACE strikers before him.
Vardy, who was magnificient for me. With 92 pace, Vardy felt just that; quick as f**k.
Auba with 94 PACE left defenses in the dirt.
Now Griezmann with 92 pace, is a whole different story !!! Why? i am guessing it has to do with his dribbling stats that the others 2 don't have. 90 agility, 90 ball control. 88 dribbling, just adds another dimension to his speed. He not only felt faster than the others, but he felt smooth fast. take whatever meaning you can out of that, but SMOOTH FAST ! I was so surprised with his pace, it didn't add up. I have not used a Griezmann without the hunter chem boost, but with it, you get a Griezman who is demolishing defenses. who felt faster than POTM vardy and gold Auba.
weave in weave out weave in weave out weave in weave out. Quick turns, pull backs, fake shots. Does NOT lose the ball. 4 STAR skill moves with his high rated agility, ball control & dribbling, gives you all the ammunition you need. Have had so many situations in front of goal, you know when there are just legs and bodies trying to hack the ball off you, Griezmann is suuuperb at turning with the ball, close control dribbling to set himself up for his best Stat-
OMG OMG OMG. Having bought both Griezmann and Messi together, I play Messi as RF next to him. and i am a Messi fanboy. No matter how much i have consciously tried to finish with Messi, Griezman's scoring record has dwarfed Messi's. (i know as a ST he will always be in a better position to finish) . MESSI: 34 Games- 41 goals + 22 Assists . GRIEZMANN: 34 Games- 51 goals + 16 assists. His finesse is almost like Messi's. I am certain i have scored crazier finesse goals with Griezmann than Messi. The hunter Chem gives him 95+ ratings in all shooting stats except for long shots. 99 Attacking Position, he will always be there in a scoring position. EVERYTIME. Effing FLAWLESS. no joke guys. Feels like a cheat code sometimes. the 3 STAR weak foot?? Seriously guys, not bullshitting- i have noticed the 3 star. He will almost always set himself up to shoot with the left. Not force fully, but organically. Not on purpose, but just naturally. and that is key. It's always in his stride. The other times i have shot with his right, have not noticed the weakness. Still scores 9 out of 10. Unless you attempt out of the box with the right, which to be honest, i have not had a chance to do in the 34 games i have played.
His passing is the reason why people love playing him as a CAM.
86 Vision and 85 short passing that's all you will ever need from him as a ST. One two's, one two's one two's. first touch pass first touch pass. blitz blitz blitz. GOALLLLLL !!!!
But as a CAM, 83 crossing, 82 long pass and 86 curve turns him into a lethal midfielder. Searing passes across the field to the wings, look closely enough, you will see the grass burn.
Two words- PACE ABUSE. 87 stamina for a ST, tape the right trigger down!
Who says white men can't jump???
I have always felt Griezmann to be broken when it came to his jumping. 89 jumping in FIFA 20 feels just that. The 84 heading is a nice stat to have, but tbh winning headers over defenders has been really tough for me this FIFA. So i don't try that at all. But he wins ball possessions on air balls like every time. The jumping is a goos stat to have, just lob the ball from the goal kick at full power to centre field. No marks for guessing who is picking it up at half line- Griezmann, but you already knew that.
At 180k right now, he is enough to get you through the next 5-6 months. Just buy him. YOU WILL NOT REGRET !!!
Great Close Control Dribbling
Jump Jump Jump
Superb Stamina for Pace Abuse
Maybe the 3 STAR weak foot
I wasn't going to write a review but i thought people need to know how good this card is, i have used a few good cards already this year but by far this is my favourite. He is the most unreal player on this game, when having him on your team it almost feels like your cheating. With his AMAZING agility he can beat defenders with one swift turn and leave them in the dust with his quick acceleration. His finishing is something iv seen before on players like Messi where every single finesse shot he takes somehow always finds it way into the top corner. His stamina will keep him running all game so you will never have to worry about him tiring out, his jumping will have him beating most players to a header and his ridiculous passing is just an added bonus. It is honestly so hard to find negatives about this card but the only thing i will say is his strength is really low however even though its low his ball control makes it hard for defenders to take it off him.
Finishing (Finesse Shots)
Pace (Although its low, Nothing a hunter card can't fix)
What is there to say about this man?
I initially bought him for 150k after I packed an untradable Messi, the best decision of my life!
Having Messi, I was trying to score goals with him, but Griezmann was always the one on the scoresheet. With a hunter, he has nice pace, brilliant shooting, and amazing passing and dribbling. I have heard some people use him as a CAM, but in a 4-2-3-1 I played him as a striker. He scored tons of goals in my first weekend league (16 in 14) and he was the standout player in my team, ahead of Messi. He is by far the best striker I have used on this game having previously used Aguero and Aubameyang, not to mention his 87 stamina, making him a weapon throughout the entire game.
Brilliant purchase and value for money.
Pace w/ hunter
Passing and Dribbling
3* weak foot
So i decided to change my untrade rodrigo (who is good for his value but something is missing... keep reading) to grizi. And what a decision it was! I know he's not that cheap but srsly VALUE FOR MONEY! This guy is absolutely amazing he's anywhere on the pitch! I use him ST in my 4-2-2-2 formation with my untrade 87 Hernandez ( i got him from an objective pack... yes i know i know i got so much luck but never pack anything good in FIFA 20 so far.) this guy is amazing he's deadly in the box and from outside with finesse shot is so strong so agile so accurate! If u have the coins don't hasitate buy him and he will do everything for you what he can!
