INTRO: Hi guys, warm welcome to this review of El Maestro Andrés Iniesta. I'm a Barca fan since a very long time and this was a no brainer for me, I completed this SBC the minute it came out I ain't kidding. Andrés is probably my favourite midfielder of all time with Xavi Hernandez. I have been enjoying their football since the childhood and I will never forget that time of my life. I still watch their highlights sometimes on YouTube. These two guys were the two masterminds of the midfield of Futbol Club Barcelona. I have never witnessed such good midfielders of my life. If you haven't watched this players play my recommendation is to search up this guys on YouTube after you have read this review and you will enjoy life! :D
But what about the Andrés Iniesta Player Moments Card? DO HIM! NOW! What are you waiting for? AN 86??? THAT'S A BIG STEAL! This man is the goated midfielder. Is he endgame? Pfff, do I need to say it out loud? 100%, no, 110% YES! Man this is the prime Iniesta you have been looking for! Since FIFA is quite "dead" no one is playing it much this card brings back all the joy! 5* skill moves with dribbling out of this world! The passing maaaan, you will not find this skill in any other player on fifa just saying. SO let's begin the review!
-BTW! I used this card as my attacking CDM in a 4-2-2-2 formation, since it's my favourite one and I create unlimited chances with this set up. Instructions are go up in attack. I also used the Shadow chemstyle! High/Medium workrates is perfect for an attacking CDM!
Now let's get into the overalls:
PACE, 9,5/10: With the shadow chemstyle, insanly quick. He is rapid, but I have played with faster players than him. 9,5 is still incredible! I think the positioning is helping this card a lot for the pace because he is getting into the rights spots fast! Yeah, he has 99 positioning! Acceleration is crazy!
SHOT, 10/10: For an attacking CDM, it's easy to say this man is a definitive 10/10. His positioning is making him run towards the open spaces where he basically can not miss the net from! With 95 finishing, 92 shot power and 96 long shots, he can basically score from everywhere! Not to mention he has BOTH shooting traits, finesse shot trait and outside foot shot trait! Even if he has 4* weakfoot it feels just like a 5* weakfoot thanks to both of these traits! He also has 98 volleys as a reminder of the goal against Netherlands in the World Cup Final! 99 Composure as well is important to mention! It really helps to slot in the shots in the back of the net!
PASS, 10/10: Just like any Iniesta! Passing is TOP TIER! He made passes I didn't even think of thanks to the 99 vision! Short passing and also the long passing is consistent and you can just tell by the stats. To be honest here, I haven't made a wrong pass considering the tough and unbelievable passes he made! 10/10 all day long. He passes with both feet, same results! The execution from this passes, just OMG.
DRIBBLE, 10/10: Pffffff, no words, no w-o-r-d-s! The stats tells everything! Thank you stats! ;). Lean body type as well!!!
DEFENCE, Strong 8/10: Man is an attacking CDM for a reason! He can provide anything in the build up play at the offence, but he will provide in the defence as well! With the shadow chemstyle he will have some very decent defensive stats! 92 interceptions is good! 82 standing tackle and 86 sliding tackle is very decent, but being between 5 foot 7 and 5 foot 8 (171 cm) makes the tackle reach of course not the best. But when he can tackle the opponent, he will provide with some clean tackles!
PHYSICAL, 9,5/10: Man is between 5 foot 7 and 5 foot 8 (171 cm) but he has 90 strengh! Man is like a bullet, when he runs with the ball no one can body him up. Only maybe like a TOTY Van Dijk, but no one else really. Man can protect the ball with L2 without any problems! Also he has 91 stamina! What an upgrade from his other cards! It makes him last for the whole 90 minutes! 83 aggression makes also things interesting. Thanks to that aggression, it helps him body up some players because of the desire to get the ball!
OUTRO: You must complete this SBC NOW! What are you waiting for(?), this is the chance! An 86 for this card is jokes! The ea employee is back from his vacation! Even if this Andrés card doesn't link to the players in your XI it doesn't matter. He would be the amazing super-sub! This card defintly brought back some joy to still playing this game. This is a must do for sure!
So that's the end, hope you guys enjoyed reading this review and i wish you all a nice evening and a nice summer! Thanks! :)
When I first got him, i played him as a box to box and thought he was terrible, because he was. I switched him to a CAM and usually sub him on in around the 70th minute. He is so reliable. I had a game where he kicked 4 goals in 20 minutes of in-game time and a 119th minute winner. He helped me go from gold 2 to 1 game off elite 3.
Passing is elite. Tap triangle and it will find someone.
Dribbling is very good. 5* skills really helps him, but I would prefer to dribble with others (such as bamba)
Shooting. With his weak foot 4* but feeling like 5*, he bangs them in from anywhere.
Defending... DO NOT PLAY HIM CM. He doesn't get the ball and is wasted down there
Stamina. He gets tired if you play him CM or run him around a lot.
Links. Spanish is alright but the China link really messes him up. He's worth being a first minute sub in my opinion
