Player Review

91 - TOTS
Juan "El Patron" Cuadrado - Review
By Whatscooking, 27-05-2021

Another day has come to review a card which should be reviewed. I was always looking for a perfect link for my CR7 TOTY and finally I can say there is a perfect solution in the defending spots.

For me Cuadrado is playing RB in a 4-2-3-1 or 4-1-2-1-2. But sometimes I will switch him ingame to the RAM position or RW.

I'm a DIV1, Gold 1 player. So let's get in the review.

PACE 10/10

He delivers what you expect of him. Lightning fast, very good acceleration! No more words needed.


His shooting is not that bad at all. Of course he does not have many opportunities in game to hit the goal, but I noticed that he has a pretty good longshot combined with more than enough power to hit the back of the net. Nothing to complain about, unless you play him RM or RB. If you want to play him as ST or Mid-CAM you will have better opportunites to use for sure (e.g. Lozano TOTS).


Very accurate passing combined with pretty nice crosses. He is not on the level as e.g. Kimmich TOTY, but it's definetly high class for a RB. Furthermore I noticed his extremly good through balls.


5* skills, bodytype and his dribbling stats are making him an absolute beast when it comes to dribbling. I can't think of any player who dribbles like him in Fifa 21. It's a bit like Neymar and Mbappe combined. Very good, fast turns and close ball control.


Pretty good in my opinion. Since Cuadrado is not the strongest defensive player in FIFA, I was suprised how many times he managed to stop my opponents. He is very good to defend players like Neymar or else with much pace and dribbling due to his great agility and good defensive positioning.


The other category which surprised me the most. Because of his very good balance he ist pretty good in 1on1 situations. Pushed opponents of the ball many times. But when it comes to physical strong players like Lukaku,Lewandowski or Kane he did sometimes struggle to stop them.

VERDICT 9.5/10

Normally he would be a 9/10 for me, but with his price beeing pretty low in my opinion and the perfect link to CR7 he is a 9.5 for me. If he would be a bit stronger in the defensive parts he would hit the perfect 10/10.

But all in all I have to say, If you are looking for a very solid and good RB or RM don't hesitate. He is a bargain for the price he's currently going for (160k).







Sometimes a bit weak

MOTM Cuadrado

On Saturday night I decided to finally complete marquee matchups as I fancied my chances of packing one of those beautiful future stars, but instead out of my premium electrum pack came this man. At first I thought of selling him but decided against as I had 16 games of WL left and was in desperate need of a strong link to my Dybala that I didn’t have to sub off. So I kept him for the WL and I do not regret it one bit.

Juan Cuadrado

All the games I played were in division 2 rivals. The way I lined up the squad was Lukaku/Mertens ST, El Sha LAM, James CAM, Adama RAM, Thiago and Kessie up the middle, Gosens LB, Cuadrado RB, Mina and Tomori CBs with Nick in goal. I used gladiator as my chem style, as I knew I'd want him on the wing as well as RB.After opening rewards, an 87+ x10, and my first 2 icon swap packs, this Cuadrado was pretty e...

the Juan and only

I played Cuadrado for 15 games in a variety of positions, CDM and RB in 4-2-3-1, RM in 3-5-2, and CM in 4-4-2. My review will be on his performance at RB, but I will say now that he can play any position other than GK, CB, and ST with success. I am a div 3 player, I played him with an anchor chem style.I was up at 1 am and wasn't really thinking, so I decided to put my Kante in the double 85+ SBC and this ...
