So.... I used to play with Aouar and Llorente, and i've been struggling for quite some time, i tried to replace Llorente with Tchouaméni but the guy was just to stocky for me. I'm a big Olympique Lyonnais fan so i refused to replace Aouar, when i saw that this Paquetá, my eyes started shinning like two gold stars. Thankyfully i had the fodder and the coins to do him.
He completely changed everything, he was like the missing piece of this team, he's everywgere in the field.
A few points to start. I play in Div1- Elite division and usually get 11-14 wins in Fut Champions. I use Lucas at CM with Aouar.
The main highlights for me with this card were :
Pace - He has 84 pace or 94 with Shadow Chemstyle applied (Whether or not I believe pace on chemistry styles applies aside here). He is not Usain Bolt, but he is pretty fast, he can get around quickly and sometimes outrun defenders.
Shooting - Right, left, i don't notice the 3* Star Week Foot inside the box, the man just does his magic and scores everything he touches inside the box, i found the outside of the box shots a bit weak because not only i can score a lot of bangers, but he misses the finesse shot trait.
Dribbling - It's a bit of a mix of Neymar and Fekir together, agile and fast dribble, with that 5* Skill Moves u can do some nasty plays and left your opponents in the mud.
Physical - His average body type + his 86 physique is the perfect combo, he wins most 1 on 1 battles for me and he can bully so much people out of the ball. Obvious if he goes against a Capoue or Vieira he won't win it right.
Defending - He has 77 defending or 87 with Shadow (Whether or not I believe defense on chemistry styles applies aside here), he can win a lot of balls, he is not a kanté but he gets the job done pretty good.
He does literally better than i expected and for me it's one of the best i've used this Fifa.
Overall, in my opinion he is worth the money and coins because even if you don't like him he is good fodder, but i almost assure you he will gonna do some magic stuff in your team.
In my team he is used as a DM in a 4-2-3-1 on 7 chem but he was a card i felt i just had to do because my team was lacking midfield quality, but lets get on to the review.
I feel like he may have been over hyped but that doesn't mean he is bad he feels strong on the ball but sometimes has moments where I feel he gets bodied of the ball by a small attacker but overall hes quite solid. he dribbling is amazing and he gets past players with ease and is a very good play maker when on his left foot his weak foot isn't bad for only being 3* however sometimes on his weak foot he makes a terrible pass that messes up the attack so keep that in mind.
I haven't really taken many shots with him as he doesn't really seem to get into attacking postilions for me, but he is surprisingly good at defending and i have barely coincided many shots with him never mind goals he seems to block everything and feels very fast and responsive and if you have the cards to complete him i would recommend
However I don't know if he is an elite level card yet which is what I was expecting.
SHe plays at cm and he's really useful when attacking specially because of the good dribbling and 5* skills his passing is good as long as you use the right foot which is a bit sad cause i like everything about him but in driven passes he's weak foot really is a mess.
He is not bad at defence specially when i tried him with a shadow he won't be a kante tho i recommend him being the attacking cm but for an attacking cm his defense is useful.
Almost all his ingame stats are above 80
Really high dribbling feels light on the ball
Decent Passing i've been using De Bruyne before him tho so it was a bit of a downgrade on that part
3* Weakfoot is very noticable
it sounds weird but i prefer right foot over left foot for central players
If you're looking for defence he's not your guy he's way more useful upfront
I completed him yesterday and so far I can already tell that he's over hyped. I understand that not everyone's fodder situation is equal. So for some people the 230K price tag, at the time of this review, could seem pricey, Whereas for other it's nothing. Well for me the cost was quite substantial for the type of player I got in return.
The High/High works are not for everyone. For my style of play, I should have known that this work rate would not work. He's consistently out of position and is never really where I need him to be. Now saying that, work rates can work in favor or against you depending on formation and tactics. I'll just have to find a way to work around it.
For me he is an average player. To me he didn't really seem worth the price. I replaced Capoue with this card and I feel I need to go back to Capoue because the defense just isn't there. I had him on a shadow and even with that the defense is lacking. Also his body type and height are just not as dominating of a presence in the middle of the pitch as someone like Capoue. That being said.....Paqueta is in another league with his passing over Capoue.
If you wanna run him as more of an attacking mid I'm sure you might have better luck with him. Shadow in my opinion is kind of a waste on this card.
If you need him for the links, or you have the fodder to easily complete him then go for him. You really can't lose there.
If you are a non-skiller, save your fodder. It's January and there will be someone better later on. His weak foot is terrible.
Passing is great. He definitely makes some great passes leading to scoring opportunities. Crossing is blah though. Nothing special so you can't really play him on the wing.
Dribbling is decent. I didn't really feel anything different that several other players that I have on my team. For me he did not match up to Coutinho's dribbling level.
He has great base stats and could really play any position in the midfield, which is great. But there are about 25 other players that can do that.
Links. I got him mainly for the links. Perfectly links some key leagues and countries in my team.
High/High. It's not for everyone, in my case it just didn't work. I prefer High/Med or better yet Med/Med (but this is just personal preference)
Weak Foot. I mean not a make or break deal but when I'm banging in shots from outside the box with Capoue's weak foot and Paqueta can't hit air, that says something.
Price. Again not everyone's fodder situation is the same. There is always someone better on the horizon.
