Let's talk about Draxler Player Moments! (if you like the review, give me some support and your opinion on my IG please: scandola_FUT)
A new Draxler card is available to celebrate his incredible volley against Bordeaux via an SBC costing around 250k. What for a card!!! I have absolutely no memories of this supposed incredible volley but I will remember this card for a long time. The statistic increase is mind-blowing: +11 pace, +9 shooting, +6 passing, +6 dribbling, +12 defending, +5 physicality and +235 in total IG!!!! According to this upgrade, I have without hesitation completed the SBC and that without even thinking about its price. Draxi the Terror joined my club barely 20 minutes after coming out and he had an immense contribution ( as CM in a 4-3-3) during my Play-offs Fut Champions campaign (8W-1L) with 3 goals and 7 assists.
Regarding his main strengths, his shooting ability coupled with his 5 stars W.F. is just lunar for a midfielder. It will just as much kick you a volley in the top corner from 35m as it will finish an action at the penalty spot and this regardless of the foot used. Then, with his 87 in acceleration, he is quite quick enough to defend, collect balls and attack which makes him very enjoyable to play. He also has exceptional passing abilities. Thus, he delivers countless assists on a silver platter (crosses, passes on the ground, in the air, etc.) for the forwards of his team. Finally, his body type coupled with his maneuverability, his height (187 cm) and his dribbling make him so pleasant to control. Personally, I really enjoyed playing with it during my Play-offs.
Regarding its weaknesses, to be honest, I didn't really notice any during the gameplay. If I still have to find one, I will say its defensive level is not equal to a Kanté or Fofana POTM. He sometimes miss his interventions and may not seem as solid as the players mentioned above. But, in any case, he should not be used as a pure CDM at the risk of restricting all his offensive talent.
In conclusion, I'm glad I did the SBC. The price is far from free and making this card is clearly a big investment. But which midfielder card will be better in Ligue 1 before 2-3 months? Personally, I cannot imagine a card so competitive in the midfield with a green connection to Messi, Neymar and Mbappé anytime soon. I am convinced that this card will still be playable and good after TOTY. So if you're planning on playing a Ligue 1 (or hybrid) and have enough untradable or credits, go for the SBC.
SO Darxler, what does he cost ? 280-300k Honestely, I don't like to pay that much for a player if he doesn't play for my beloved SRFC. But IRL i like the player so why not give him a go
He's very versatile and that why I stick him at ST, in place of DAVID/DELORT/TREZEGUET that i tried before. I couldn't imagine that he will be this good in this place. He got everything appart of 5 star skill move (for the sweaty players ball roll scoopturn and other exploit...).
Well 5star WF, really good touch on the ball, His got that finesse / flowlish style and the sphere stick closely to his feet. A good strike inside AND outside the box.
Pace (with engine) : good enough (if you have a brain tho and aren't running like a headless chicken) acceleration his key I would say.
Shooting : Great shooting, paired with the 5star WF it's a killer in front of goal. Even have a good finesse shot outside the box. finishing is cinical ASF.
Passing : Well, that why i'm playing him upfront. I need a striker with a good shooting, that can organize the attacks, turn easely, etc... Draxler Have a CAM profile more than a ST, so his passing his great, I have Mid Beckham in my team and i would say that draxler is nearly on par with him in term of passing.
Dribbling : VERY VERY good, ball control, Close touch dribbling, paired with his acceleration it's a pleasure. Doesn"t feel clunky at all (he's 6.2 ft).
Defending : Well at striker it's difficult to show this stats, but he can put a good standing tackle when needed.
Physical : Stamina isn't a con, a bit weak when caught by CB, so you have to anticipate a bit, Have a good Ball protection tho.
To conclude : for the PSG links and all mentions before, this card is a great card that will last more than two month or three i supposed.
300k is not cheap by any mean tho, do the sbc only if you have a shit load of coins or you have many PSG players or if he's your favorite player ever.
Dribbling overall, very responsive
Shooting and 5star WF
Short and long passing
Stamina could be a bit better if you like eavy pressing
