If you're a runner and like to use meta always and everywhere, don't read this review!


Magician! I don't know how EA did it, but they were able to make this card even a little bit like Xavi. I really enjoyed playing for him. He is very responsive in control: his movements, body turns are incredible. Most of all I was impressed by his choice of position, how great he feels when and where to be in the center of field, he is always open to pass, this is very important!


I highly recommend this card everyone who loves passing and technical football and of course to fans of Xavi because he really looks like himself


 All matches were played at Division Rivals (2200 skill points) and WL. and I can confidently say that this player feels great even in a bad connection. He keeps his mobility and agility

Ball Control: Perfect! He can easily break the pressure of opponent by turning his body. Ball is glued to his feet (10/10)

Passing + Vision: Extraordinary! Ball trajectory is crazy. He rarely makes a mistake in pass. I watched almost every match he had after 90 minutes successfully made 100% of his passes and many of them were escalating. (10/10)

Positioning: Never seen such a incredible choice of position before, perhaps Thomas Müller, but it's more about inside the box. (10/10)

Pace: Very Comfortable pace for his position (9/10)

Interseptions: Very good. If somehow you want to use him at the CDM position, you can be sure Xavi is't useless in defense. (7.5/10)

No Flashback Iniesta (for now) :(

The Maestro

This is the most fun card I've used this Fifa. I like trying non-meta midfielders - Pirlo, Gatusso, Xavi etc...Xavi is extremely fun to use and will elevate your passing game and make you enjoy the game that little bit more despite all the gameplay issues and frustrations with abundance of meta teams I came across in division 2, 3 and Weekend league. If your team has fast runners and other intelligent off the ball movers, X...
