This weekend league I really wanted to play Opara and bought him for 20k one day before the MLS player objectives came out. When I saw this card I got really hyped (Great stats for a card where you only need to play 15 games for and you don't even need to win the games haha). All games I played with him where in the weekend league. I played nearly a full MLS backline with him, Long, Opara, Walker and Hamid. (Hamid is btw a great keeper considering his stats and his rating)
In the Weekend League I found out that this guy is a beast. He is for sure the best LB I used this year and I used players like Mendy, Telles, Robertson.
Pace: Even if he has 92 pace already I still used a Shadow Chem Style on him. He was so quick that he was able to catch up to players like Adama, Mbappé or Neymar.
This was also very important for my offensive play because I often pass the ball to him so he can run in the midfield and create some space for my midfielders and strikers. In the build up play he was unstoppable.
Shooting: I think he never had the chance to show his shooting ability in my team haha
Passing: His passing is pretty good. I don't take risky passes or play many long balls with my wingbacks. He didn't make any bad passes to my midfielders.
Dribbling: His dribbling was outstanding. When he catches up to a player and takes the ball from him away he was very strong on the ball and easy to control the ball with
Defending: Very very good. He didn't do any dumb tackles. You can easily get the ball from your opponent. It doesn't matter if the opponent is directly in front of you or if you need to catch up to him at first and tackle him from behind.
Physicality: He is surprisingly very strong and he can shield off the ball pretty good. In one game he was also able to push Rulebreaker Lukaku off the ball. I think he is such a good defender because of his agression. He realy wants to get the ball from the defender and he fights for your team!!
I hope I could help you if you're unsure of doing him. I know he is pretty hard to link if you don't want to play MLS in the backline or if you don't have some Icons to link him. This guy is completely worth for just playing 15 games. This is my first player review and I wanted to post one on this card because no one reviewed him just yet :)
Sorry for my bad english haha
Have a great day guys and GL with him in your Weekend League
