Jordi Alba - 86 - Rare
4.5
Underrated Beast
By CemF, 02-12-2020

Jordi Alba suffered from the uprise of Ferland Mendy in LaLiga. Mendy is not only impressing with his stats and ingame presents but also with his perfekt link to Varane which is the best option for a LaLiga sqaud. Nonetheless Alba is still among the best Fullbacks in the game. He is performing better in game rather than showing in his stats. He is still fast (88 pace) and can keep up with the fastest Wingers in the game. His physicality and defenfensive skills are top notch. I wittnessed that players who are faster (Salah, Adama) and players who are Stronger (Bale, Adama) had a hard time passing Alba. Overall Alba is more than able to compete with Mendy and is way cheeper. The only downtake alba has are his headers which are not that important for a Fullback.

Cheap Beast

Knowing that i cant afford Mendy i went for a cheaper option. I dont regret doing that. Alba is a beast he helps my defense and forwards a lot. Makes a lot of good tackles he makes a lot of good runs to make crosses. He is very quick to get back on defense. Only problem im really having is the strenght and his height for headers. He gets bodied easily and sometimes doesnt reach for the headers and the ball goes trough. I wo...

Almost Equal to Mendy

I have used Mendy before and I can guarrantee you, Mendy is only better in his height and strength attributes and his 5 star WF of course. But aside from that, I don't see the need to put in a extra 80k for Mendy (as of this moment) when you can get Alba for 16k. He is so agile on the ball, put a anchor on him and its like he has Alphonso Davies pace, also when using tactics such as drop back, this guy will (with the right ...

Gets the job done

Well, I'll preface this with 'this is not the Mendy replacement'. I used Mendy before this guy and sadly he's miles ahead. that being said, they are very different cards, and in all honesty I genuinely enjoyed using Alba. I played with him mostly as a LB, but I ended up experimenting with him in the 352/532 meta as a LWB/LM, and this guy really shone. As a base LB with an anchor he does the job, decent pace, nice tackling a...
