this man is the perfect false 9 or CAM for the specific people, people will be thrown off by his low balance or pace but use him correctly and he'll amaze you, fast pace passing with him being at the centre is how you should build up, he shoudnt be a lone striker as he doesnt have the pace to go round defenders without doing a bridge or directional bridge (however his attacking positioning means hes always making perfect runs). his finnesse long shots never fail and it doesn't feel like he has a week foot. 100% put on engine on him, as his shooting doesn't need a boost at all, but upgrading pace and balance is great. before i got him i felt the need to do unnecessary skills, but my game has greatly improved by playing to his strengths and keeping things simple. i also havent noticed his lack of dribbling at all.
SHOOTING- honestly in the 13 rivals games i played with him he only missed 1 shot which i expected him to score but thats it
PASSING- he shouldnt be able to make the passing he does
HEADING- him at the front post for corners... WOW, also hes the perfect target man for crosses his positioning and finishing are insane.
WEEKFOOT- 4 star weekfoot is a lie
SKILL MOVES - not a con for me but some may be put off by that
Great card for people who loves him or loves football. Fantastic player in real life and really usable in FIFA as well, I was using his headliners card, but when I could done this SBC for around 50 K because of fodder, I didn hesitate. Obviously he is not "meta" but who cares? I love playin fifa with my favourite players, mostly associated with Real Madrid or France and it is really different experience. Much better than use meta players and not enjoy your team... I use him as striker like in real life, hes just great, Very very similar to his headliner card so if u can save some coins dont hesitate.
Finesse shot trait
Great all round shooting
Not max out pace, but honestly it doesn´t matter for Nueve :)
Not meta driblling
I Did this card to try out. I wanted to try him out then put him into an SBC. After playing a few games of division 3 rivals, I found that he is very fun to play with. He can dribble very well and is a lethal finisher. He does not miss in front of goal. https://www.futbin.com//21/squad/7460330 This is my team. I play him as a CAM in a 3-5-2 behind CR7 and Sancho
He can finish anything and can very easily cut through defense. Very rarely loses the ball and often wins a foul when he does. His passing and strength are also impeccable
Pace could be higher but it is not bad. Dribbling is great apart from agility and balance which isn't bad but could be higher.
There isnt much to say that's not visible on the card. Slap an Engine chem on it and you have a 10/false 9 with crazy passing, crazy shooting and decent amounts of agility/pace. Benzema doesn't feel slow, he doesn't feel stiff. If your gameplay isn't based on spamming skill moves and running counters, you will find that this card is very "nwar". The most important thing if you play him as striker or false 9 is that with Engine he has a quick enough first step to set up the shot. If you like headers, he can do that too. Overall, I'm 1800-ish rated with a dirt cheap squad but this man, he feels endgame and he carries.
Conclusion : not exactly meta but extremely playable and very enjoyable. This card is made for specific playstyles but its potential is limitless, you're not capped for anything with it. Odds are, people will scream "stop it stop it, it's black it's black" when you bang the hat trick on them.
- Shooting goes straight in the net, keepers don't move half the time
- Best false 9 candidate for his passing
- Not stiff, great close control, PLAY ENGINE
- Medium workrate isn't preventing him from making runs and finding good pockets of space
- Don't believe other reviews, the 4 star weak foot definitely shows and will cost some goals compared to 5 stars merchants like Neymar.
- You are likely to not finish most of your games due to opponent rage quitting
- Red link with Lacrim (fumier)
Sheesh, all that I can say is what a card. Over the past few Fifa's I have dearly enjoyed using Benzema special cards in mid/late game. This one is no different. I was able to complete him for such a low cost with a few 85 fodder cards. I play 433(4) and play him at CAM with an engine. His attacking positing is insane and his pace and strength allow him to blow past defenders. He averages around 2 goals per game for me and when he doesn't score he racks up assists and creates space. I do have to admit he is a lil chunky on the ball but it's bearable. Overall he is a great card that is 100% worth it.
Feels a lil clunky
