Player Review

Lionel Messi - 98 - TOTS
4.5
The GOAT
By pleaseEASports, 09-05-2021

So, somehow I managed to pull the goat in one of the new cracked LaLiga player picks, and I fucking went mental when I saw I got the GOAT, his stats are no joke, he is an absolute monster in-game, he's obviously very very expensive at 4 million coins, but even that is worth it in my opinion, he is just so good in game.

The first thing I immediately noticed was how massive the physical boost was, the 85 strength was really showing, I wasn't boosting his strength but even still it surprised me how strong he was, compared to his regular gold card.

His pace is incredible, the pace burst you get from the 97 acceleration is crazy, you can make varane and mendy your bitch with his pace, I used a catalyst chem style to boost sprint speed also so this probably helped.

His shooting is obviously top notch, easy finesse shots from outside the box, and if you're inside the box, you're not missing.

His passing I didn't really try much, I played him as a striker so there wasn't many opportunities where I could go for through balls or something.

Moving back to the physical, which I think really shines the most in this card, he just feels so much stronger than any other messi card I've used, the stamina boost is great (91 stamina).

Overall while the goat is expensive, it's the goat and he is always worth it, probably the best card i've used in FIFA.

Pace, especially acceleration

99 Shooting

Very good passing

99 Dribbling

Much better physicals

I don't really think there any big cons, probably only the aggression.

Magisterial!

Dear Messi fans,This one is mainly for you, the ones dedicated to doing everything in their power in order to change the way they survive the current meta and incorporate this magician in their squads. I've been a fan of this player since the very first day he stepped in for the first team in October of 2004 and Ill probably be telling stories about him to my grandkids one day. Having said that, I'l...
