87 - Headliners Upgrade
4.5
Skill below Price
By Sefc, 06-02-2021

You could say this guy this guy is a veteran in my Sevilla team having played 3 full Weekend Leagues with this particular card. Before that I have used his TOTGS and normal gold card quite a lot too. This made me want to write this review. His gold card is good, and his TOTGS has a noticeable upgrade over it. But this Headliners card doesn't feel any better or worse than the TOTGS, but the price difference is massive.


Ofcourse I know that at the time of writing he could earn an +1 upgrade. But as I didn't feel any difference between 85 and 86, 87 wouldn't probably make a big difference either. The 'Meta' defender Varane is just as good, if not better than this 86 Headliners card. The main difference between the two is that Diego Carlos is noticeable more aggressive than Varane which suits my playstyle very well. Diego Carlos isn't short but Varane has those long legs which he greedily makes advantage off, something Carlos lacks.


Overall is this card very good for the high-defensive-line defender. Strong in the air and can track basically any attacker agility and pace wise if you hand him the shadow chemistry style. But the same goes for his TOTGS. Solely looking at the card: Great, I would recommend. Taking price and his former card in consideration: Take the TOTGS or Varane instead if you're looking for the same quality but at a less price than the 500K he is worth at the moment of writing.

A Must Have!

So i never actually used the Gold version of this card or the previous 84 but i liked the look of the Headliners one as it stood, plus with the potential to upgrade as well i thought i would test him out. My normal CB pairing was Varane and Prime Blanc which i loved so for me to sell Blanc i would absolutely have to love Diego Carlos....I sold Blanc after 5 games. I fell instantly in love with this card!! The main thing for...

Best CB I've used so far

He is fast and agile. If you spam L2 for defence like I do then this is your guy. With his strength and pace, he is like a tank on steroid.Partnering with Tomori and managed kept a few clean sheets on Division Rivals.

Better than Varane, Casemiro and Giménez

So, guys! I packed him untreadable a few weeks ago, in his promo. I kept him in the bench cause I had varane and rttf klostermann. Since I wanted to save some coins in order to buy Mbappe ad Neymar I decided to pair him with Koundé, since he was already upgraded and OMG. He reminded me of his TOTS last year, for me he is better than Varane, Casemiro, Gimenez, rttf Klostermann and If Gomez, because he has the dribbling, the...
