Hi guys, I did this review on my Yt channel (Luiselme) but i´ll also do the review here
So, This FB sbc concepts are so good, in my opnion this Benzema is a must- do card, I used him in 4 Fut champs matches, scored 3 goals and did 1 assist I used him as ST in all the matches, that 89 pace and 90 agility and 88 balance are a big W, despite being 185 cm tall he is sooo fast man, he can easily win races to fast defenders like Varane lol, he can turn without any problem, despite his shot being a bit nerfed he can easily score, his finishing is letal inside the box, his finesses are really cool, his passes are a fake stat, he can do beatiful long passes
So, my conclusions are that this Benzema is a really great ST also he is sooo easy to link :)
Unreal sbc, hes an actual joke. Dribbling feels amazing even in bad gameplay, shooting is cracked and weakfoot feels like 5*. I have a hunter on him and his pace is a joke and so fun on him. Plus hes so strong, can body van dijk at times.
This Benzema card is essentially not a Benzema card. This card is so unique and good at what it does. He is the definition of OP striker. I would relate this Benz card to a Puskas with 4* WF. I used Puskas Mid for a lot of the year last year and I have flashbacks to him from this card. He moves, reacts, dribbles, and has that special something of a top tier card. He is on another level to most pure striker cards in the game. I have used the likes of Fekir 85, Hernandez 87, Henry 90, Suker 87, Del Piero 90, POTM Benzema, etc. I like to use unique cards in game. If you are someone who wants a "meta" striker but one who is not 500k+ - flashback Benz is for you. Let's get into the review...
He can get in behind defenses, break away and is quick out of skills. This area of the card is the one which surprised me the most. The guy is fast and that is no b.s. He beat gold Varane, Kimpembe, Marquinhos RTTKS, etc. with pace easily. He has just enough strength to hold off the defender once they are hip to hip as well. He is excellent at breaking the line and bursting past the defense with his High/Low Work Rates and 93 attack positioning with a hunter. Speaking of, this Benzema card has 98 pace with a hunter chem style. Does he feel like he has 98 pace? Almost. He feels somewhere around 92-95 which is to say he is just as fast as the other pacey cards I've used around him. I was using gold Neymar next to him for a few games, and I realized that Benzema was faster on the breakaway which was interesting. I think the pace on this card is great. My score /10 is relative to guys like 2if Vini, Ousmane, Rafa, etc. He 100% feels faster than most strikers though.
His shooting is generally amazing and he finishes mostly everything in and around the box. HOWEVER, there's times where I'm like "did he just miss that?" and its a little disappointing but the thing is, his ability to not only create (which I'll get into) and his ability to finish his dinner in most opportunities- it doesn't really matter. He is a goal-getting machine simple as that. He has this accurate venom to his shooting which reminds me of his POTM. The huge difference between the two is how you can work space and create angles with this version to give yourself easier shooting opportunities. Love scoring goals with this card though.
I'm not gonna sit here and say honestly that his passing is good. But it really ain't that bad once you figure out how to use his passing. His passing is just average but he is not built like a playmaker anyways so you shouldn't treat him as such. He is your goal-scorer. Although he provided 7 assists in 18 games for me. Like I said, just keep it short with him or on the ground for longer through balls. He can pull off some great passes in the box with his 82 vision and short passing. Don't let anybody convince you he is not able to pick a pass out. He will find the open man.
THIS IS THE PART. His dribbling is genuinely fantastic. Even in slow gameplay he feels so snappy and quick on the ball, to turn, play a pass, shoot, get into position, etc. His 88 balance, 92 ball control, and 78 strength is so good together. He does not feel 6'2, he feels more like 5'10. I'd relate his dribbling again to a Puskas, a Fekir, a Stoichkov (but better). That combination of balance and strength is fire. Ball rolls and chops with him come off so smooth and effortless-especially in front of goal. I really enjoy skilling with this card.
Defending: HEAR ME OUT/10
He is a bully. He takes the ball off defenders and midfielders very well for a striker. He is great at retaining possession and it might be one of my favorite aspects of the card. My opponents underestimate his track back speed and tackling ability and it's like taking candy from a baby with him tbh. His heading is fantastic as well. He scored 3 or 4 headers off corners for me in the 18 matches.
His physical ability is very very good. I have a new way to do goal kicks now because of him. I bomb it up to him, hold R2, and he brings the ball down every single time. He's held off all of the O.P. centerbacks in the game doing this. It is like 9 times out of 10. Trust me. Also his physical in the attack and using skills to brush past opponents is very nice too. It's Mbappe, Salahesque.
Hi guys, this is my first review. Sorry if I have some problems writing on english, but I'm from Spain and this is my second language.
All weeks I change a part of my squad and when I saw this SBC I inmediately know that this would be a good card. I've used it on a full Fut Champs (20 matches) and he scored 32 goals and 3 assists. I still using it on Rivals and I have finally reached the elite this season. The agility is insane, and the 88 balance too, still measuring 188.
He can win races with CB's like Varane, Kounde, Kimpembe, Van Dijk 'cause he has a good strength too. About turn around, he can do it easiest too, and when you get on a good shooting position, 99% you're going to score, doesn't matter the foot. He has 4 stars of weak leg, but he seems like 5.
About links, he is French and from LaLiga, so is ez to get they.
I think that is a not 86 rating card, he can get easiest 89 or 90.
Good card design
Can play like ST or CAM
Passing is sometimes so bad --> 77 but stay like good passing for a ST
Overall (Short Read): A Great OP, budget, rockstar Striker. For being November this is a great start to the year. Several lineups will likely have this card. For the price it's an incredible card. And it has most of the best links in the game. La Liga and French, plus you can be crafty with the position modifiers to make him fit in a variety of lineups. Find a way to complete the SBC while there is still time! As a quick comparison he is eerily similar to the 99 Ronaldo (Man U) Premium SBC at the end of last year. Obviously not THAT good but he is a great Striker to get you through to Team of the Season for now.
I just completed Benzema last night and he is amazing! What can I say that has not already been said!?!?! If you run a La Liga squad he is a must do SBC. Even for other who have hybrids:the french links work great with several Meta and non-meta players. He Green links to Vini. I mean the list goes on. I had always liked Benzema is previous versions of foot but it's nice to have the extra pace in this version. A lot of people go right to the work rates. I'll relate him to 99 Ronaldo (Man U) in Fifa 21. Obviously he is not quite at that level. However, Benzema is an excellent option for November and far into many months.
Great Pace. I have him on Hunter for now only because I did not have a hawk chem style to put on him first. But with a hunter he is crazy fast and his finishing is great! I might try hawk later for the added extra boost to long shots and the physical boost. His body type doesn't feel to bad either for someone his size and he has great dribbling stats for this early on in the game. So for all you skillers I'd say he is worth a go even though he has 4* / 4WF. Me personally I do NOT use skills so 4/4 is just fine for me. I use him as ST in several different formations. Be it 4-3-3(4), 4-2-2-2 or even 4-1-2-1-2. I was tempted to use him as CAM but his finishing is just to good to not put up front right in the box where he should be. Passing is clearly a weak point and maybe could point people away from the card but as a ST he's fine with 77 passing. I had no issue with it at all. I mean if you want the extra passing boost pick a different chem style where passing is the focal point. The high/low works rates are fantastic. I never had an issue with M/M before but there is just something about H/L that works extremely well for strikers. I absolutely despise strikers with H/H. I just can't get that work rate to work with my formations. As such if H/L doesn't work for you just adjust he in game tactics and you can fine tune any player to work in your advantage.
Dribbling is great for his body type (I mean Gold Ronaldo has 88 Dribbling, Benzema 90) the body type does have an affect here. But for non-skillers you won't notice it.
Higher Defense than POTM card
Similar Physical to POTM card (MORE STAMINA!)
Work Rates adjusted to more the more OP High/Low
Passing maybe, but c'mon let's be serious here the guy is a striker. How much passing you really gonna need to do?
What a great card! I completed his SBC today because I packed an untradable Rodrygo RTTK early on and I could not skip this SBC. Truly amazing to play with. Feels very fast and responsive on the ball. Shooting is amazing, also with his WF. Would 100% reccomend doing this SBC. I used my fodder and had to buy a Karlsson SS for 50k, but it's 100% worth it.
I play him in a 4222 with him and Rodrygo in ST. 4 Games in Div 1 rivals got me 6 goals and 4 assists with this beast.
Did this SBC for fun, now he's my main striker. He will honestly shoot from anywhere as long as he's open and 99% of the time it's going in. He also got some really nice dribbling which gets him open. If you need a striker, or even a CM that will dominate the game. Benzema is your guy.
Finesse shot is incredible, great dribbling, awesome pace, underrated interceptor.
So, after regretting not doing POTM benzema i waited and did other SBCs. Then this card came out, and looking at his hefty pace upgrade and very meta dribbling stats i rushed immediately to do him. The value for money is incredible (if you do the Baku objective) and he is worth every coin and player you put into him. The 1st game I played with him i just tried a finesse shot from anywhere and it flew in like IF Messi, his shooting is crazy and I would highly recommend doing this card, especially with the good links he happens to have.
Passing (with a maestro)
Can feel slow on the ball sometimes
Sometimes has strange animations with his body type
Hey! not one to really do reviews often but this card is just so phenomenal I had to! as many, I had to cop the L on the POTM and used him to get FB Benzema but my god is it worth it. He is honestly so rapid and clinical! I play him as a LS up top with Ginola in a 4222 and this combination is insane. I know fodder has gone up w/ all the SBCs right now but if you can get this guy I promise he will be a game changer!
dribbling is far superior to his other cards so you really notice the ball glued to him with his pace as well and whilst he isn't as strong has his POTM he has more than enough strength to shrug off defenders whilst blitzing by them. Finishing is deadly and the work rates are actually one of his biggest, most impactful changes, he makes such great runs and drops back to pull out defenders it's genuinely mind boggling how good his AI is.
I hope you all get the chance to try him and have been as satisfied with this black friday promo as I have! Massive props to this card, can't say enough good things about this guy for real man!
Pace - definitely a HUGE upgrade over the POTM and genuinely feels rapid
Dribbling - obviously not top tier but still super clean and controlled, body type shaming is NOT VALID
Shot - decrease here not noticeable, so deadly in and around the box, cannot give him any space
W/R - honestly stupid good, makes great runs and his attacking AI is phenomenal
Physical - noticeably less than POTM but it's offset by the pace so it isn't a huge issue
Passing - has fumbled a few easy passes and often takes a little too long to get them off but manageable
