Butra My love
By ROcky1995, 04-11-2020

First I have to say this is one of my favorite card in fifa 20. In fifa 21, this card is still good enough to be considered fantastic. This man is moving like a ghost without a ball. He will definitely beat your opponent in lower div. In the high div, his strength does become a problem and you guys have to know how to use it by trying to avoid too much physical contact. As for shooting, with no doubt, butra is the best shooter in-game. I used all the player below 5 m and you have my words. This is one of the best shooters you can find below 5m. Also, he definitely a game-changer, score so many goals for me. In addition, I really enjoy his move without ball, you got to have a main striker to attracting fire and he will ghost through the defend line, he doesn't move that much, but once you see he move, prepare to pass him the ball and press the shooting bottom no matter how hard you push the bottom he will score, he will just takes care of everything.

Butragueño the god
By bradleyhunty, 08-01-2021

i have never done a review, but i just had to for the card. i am a div 1 gold 1 player and for TOTY i always go liquid and just opened my icon swaps base or mid pack and it was mid suker(who's not good except his shooting) I had a bit of fodder in my club so I decided to do a base or mid icon sbc. i did icon roulette and went to spain, I already have base icon puyol so wasn't expecting anything when I checked, but when I saw butra i was extatic.


i play him upfront in a 442 with my untradable neymar and on the wings base zola and potm felix. i have only played a few games but can already tell he's much better than him. his shooting with the finnese shot trait is insane and can score from anywhere with his 5* WF. his dribbling and pace is amazing with his agility and his size. working with neymar on get in behind his through balls and passing was really good with 90 vision. in 15 games he's scored 21 goals and 9 assists. the only problem I had with this card was his SM but I used neymar and felix for that and works well with them by the side of him. i have had no problems with his stamina and can last the whole 90 minutes but may get tired when it nears to the end of extra time.

Insane Player! What a Clinical Finisher!
By LanQ, 22-12-2020

First review and English is not the first language.


I try to find a striker around 1.5M in PC since I play a hybrid squad. I used to be a random D5 player, with Neymar Mbappe and Freeze Verrati in the front. Then I got this guy to play as my main striker in 4231. This dude is insane. This card brings me from D5 to D3 in just one week. Maybe I do improve myself, this is the first FIFA I play. However, this guy just score too much goals for me. 


I am not the player who are into skill moves for striker, so 3* is not a big problem for me. I will use Neymar and Mbappe to do the skill moves on the side. And LB to ask butra to run. All you need to do is to press the through ball, and wait for Butra to run into the position. This guy, will outpace Varane (The solid CB with very good pace). Sometimes he can even win the rival with this tiny body even against Rio or Vidic. When he get the ball close to the box, all you need to do is to press the shooting button, and he will finish in his own way. The power shot of this dude is so crazy. Low Medium is not the issue. This guy is too smart in attacking position. And you will notice his pace when he goes for the through ball, he runs like a rocket. The shot power and the shooting angle is insane, he will finish every chances he create. What a player, will absolutely bring you to another level in no matter DR or Weekend League. This card reminds me of the gold Ben Yedder this year, but the 100X stronger version. Smart run, 5*weak foot, clinical finish, and the outstanding pace. I don't know much about the meta, but if you need a finisher, mid butra worths every coins you spend..

Pace

Shooting (Shot- power, Finesse Shot)

Dribbling (Left stick and r1 is crazy, this dude is so agile)

Passing (Very decent for a striker, he wont make mistake)

5* weak foot

3* Skills (Not a big things for me, I don't use my striker to skill in 4231)

He is INSANE as a ST !!!
By Stalvat, 09-01-2021

Hey guys, so it's my first review and for a first review I was thinking to do it to a very good player and I think the word is good for this BEAST named Butragueno.


First of all, I've picked him yesterday and played some D1 games, he was very effective as his shootings abillites are fantastic it's simple every single shots are in or the keeper do a big save, his pace combined with his agility are crazy he moves so smooth, so agile it's crazy. But the most amazing thing is that the ball is sticked to him even with his 3* skills that I think isn't a big issue because I have Eto'o, Nedved, Lozano to do some skills to eliminate defenders. I've tried Ronaldo, Mbappé and a lot of very expensive strikers but nobody come close to his finishing abilities, his shot power is so broken I mean it's unbelievable all you have to do is press shooting buttons when you are on the opponent side the keeper can't do nothing about that. I'm currently on a 8-1 streak on Fut Champions and this little guy is litterally carrying me into it with maybe 5 hat tricks in 8 games very impressive. His passing abilities are also very good combined with his 5* weak foot you can easily do some long ball to your wingers or second striker without problem. I suggest you playin him on 4-4-2, i've tried to play 4-2-3-1 with him as the striker he's very good but I don't think it's the best solution, because the first con : His strength, well his strength isn't the best as you can imagine he can be easily pushed up by defenders but if you play him the right way by eliminate defenders with the left stick (it's awesome with him) you will have no problem and last con : heading, yeah it's not that good honestly even if he manage to win some headers sometimes it's not consistent.


Anyway, if you are looking for a very solid striker, just go for him he's currently at 1.3m on PS4 and I think it's a fair price for him he's just too good and he's gonna do the same for you I'm sure about that. Thanks for reading have a nice day/evening.

Butra <3
By Cyfog, 29-01-2021

First of all, this is my first review ever and my english isn't that great, so please be lenient with me.

Emilio Butragueno, or just Butra, is my absolute favourite player since Fifa 19. This year he is even better then the years before, he is absolutly magnificent.

In the box he is completly clinical. Outside the box, when you position well, he can score finesse shots from 30 yards. His dribbling is also phenomenal. Because of his size and his dribbling stats he could be one of the best dribblers in the game. More than 3* skills would be great, but it's not that necessary. You can turn him with the left stick so fast, what makes him so dangerous and unpredictable. His greatest strength is his positioning, I played him in 4-1-2-1-2 (2), where he was kinda good. Then I switched to 4-4-1-1, where he plays at CF. With this Position (no instructions), he went completly crazy. His balance stat compensate his "bad" strength stat, so he feels kinda sticky to the ball. One of his biggest advantages -his small size- makes him kinda bad at headers. But I bet, when you reading this review, you're not looking for a tall, good heading player like CR7. Im using Hawk on him, but I think its more like preference. Hawk is boosting his strength, nearly maximizes his shooting and pumps him up to 97 pace. My second choice would be basic. The most similar player is probably Messi, but this year messi feels so much worse than butra. If you looking for a small player and you have the coins, try him out! Havent played the prime version yet, but it looks not worth it.
