85 - Rare
4.5
Best rare gold Serie A CB
By itswill123, 09-01-2021

Him and Manolas is still the best defensive partnership for this league. I have tried Koulibaly and De ligt (all other rare gold CBs in this league are not worth using) and neither of them are better the Skriniar. Koulibaly seems to have little to no balance and falls over a lot when tackling someone or 1v1 with an opposition attacker. Koulibaly also doesn't win enough tackles to remove the problem from his lack of pace. De ligt in game feels worse than the stats of his card his doesn't dominate a defence and win tackles enough to make up for his lack of pace to recover when he misses a tackle. Skriniar is a solid defender who makes consistently effective tackles when close to a attacker. So his pace isn't that important when manolas is so quick and able to cover a rare mistake for Skriniar.

Strong

Wins a lot of tackles

physically dominates a game

When good when he a high coverage as he rarely let's someone past him

Has good enough dribbling to carry the ball forward when needed to

Does lack recovery pace so needs a quick CB partner

He can be dragged out of position leaving a gap in the defence at time


Other then that this is a card I really can't find many faults with

Absolutely Solid

I mean his defending stats really speaks for itself. For an 85 rated card with 92 Defensive Awareness, that's really impressive. Sadly, just cause his pace is 69 which is nice, people still see this card as a defender with 60 pace even though it's only 1 stat below 70. I paired him up with Manolas so the pace is pretty much covered. His tackles are outstanding as well. All I can...
