TL,DR: Do his SBC if you need a french CDM who has overall good stats.
I was long on the lookout for a french CDM which doesn't cost an arm a a leg and is still useable. Sure, you have IF Guendouzi, but he is weak on the passing side. So my eyes lit up when I saw this SBC and I knew I have to get him. For around 60k you can't do anything wrong imo, slap a Shadow on him and he is a strong CDM.
I've played him in the Weekend League and the qualification for it and I must say, I didn't regret my decision. He is fast, can pass the ball forward to my own players (looking at you Flashback Kante), and when you play him on Balanced attack he helps out upfront and can score a goal or two. In midfield he is a wall, my opponents had a hard time going against him.
Th only downside in many eyes are the 3* 3* - but I don't mind. You don't need to do Rainbow flicks or whatever in midfield and in my opinion the 80 Agility and 84 Dribbling is more than enough for a CDM. Also don't forget the links to Mendy, Fekir, Benzema, Kante, Varane, Ben Yedder etc. - so grab him while he is available.
I did the Capoe SBC because i thought, i would regret it, if i dont do it. And i am happy, that i did it. Capoue is a strong CDM and i can leave him the control of the Middlefield. His Sidetackles are very good and he can punch the player out of the ball.
I did the SBC when it comes out but even did play with him, because i had Fofana POTM. In my new Team with Modric WW in the Middlefield, these 2 Guys are perfect matching!
Only his Agility and Dribblestats makes him sometimes clunky and angry. But his Defensive Actions are very great!
Great CDM, Sidingtackles, Aggressivity
I´ve had read, that he is like Vieira. I can confirm it!
Agility - it is sometimes very hard to dribble with him...
