Roberto Baggio - 91 - Icon
4.5
Great once you learn how to use him
By Camerasniper, 10-01-2021

I decided to go with baggio because I needed an icon CAM to link my hybrid squad together and I am a huge fan of how he played in real life. The first couple games I played with him I put hunter on him as a CAM and I wasn't too impressed. He got muscled off the ball easily and he seemed clunky whenever he received the ball. I decided to make a conscious decision to put a deadeye on him and not rely on pace and take on defenders but instead use his great passing stats to set up teammates and use his 96 positioning and 95 finishing to make him a lethal CAM. Once I stopped trying to consistently take on defenders and slow things down a bit he became an absolute show-stopper. His long and short range finesse shots are insane with deadeye, and his passing is elite. He still has the 5 star skills and 4 star weak foot so he can dribble defenders when the time is right, but he really excels as a playmaker behind a striker who can make good runs.


He has been crushing it in WL and div 2 for me over the last 10 or so games and I can't wait to continue using him, he really makes the game fun again. He is a joy to use and his crazy mane of hair flopping around after scoring a long range finesse shot is just a thing of beauty to watch. For about 500k I think he is a steal, you just have to make sure you use him correctly, don't try to abuse the 5 star skills every time, just be patient with him and use his passing and shooting stats to let the goals flow.

Roberto Baggio

So, my older brother was a huge fan of this guy, he had a book, in his room, all about this dude, last year i didnt get to use him, but i managed to scrap some coins together this year. Initially, he started out on a CM position, and i quickly realized that he could do the job in front without trouble. He is very fluent on the ball, and 4* WF is no joke. He does have some minor weakness' which is his ability i...

A bit underrated

After I had packed De Bruyne at the start of the game I was pretty contended about my CAM position... But 2 weeks ago I was lucky again and again packed an untrade CAM...Baggio.First I was a bit unsure about if I should even play him because I liked De Bruyne pretty much, but through his linkablity und his pretty nice stats I gave him a try.In thr first 50 games I was not very satisfiad a...

Average

I packed Baggio in a 89+ Mid Icon pack. I wasn't super thrilled about it but also not bummed about it. I had tried him in draft before and his passing stood out to me, brilliant dribbling as well.Luckily I wanted to change strikers so I played him besides Félix for a juicy 4 star WF 5 star skills combo.I go into WL and oh god how average he is. Varane and Gomez destroy him in pace...
