MESSI GOAT
By jaimecarr1llo, 23-09-2021

After using Messi for 10 games i think i can make a good review from him. He is simply the best gold card i haved used, i have used CR7 and Messi. Based on the meta that is passing and dribble, Messi y simply best than CR7. His shooting is unbelievable, his passing is another class, his dribbling 100/10, sprint speed is ok/good, and his acceleration is another level. If you have the coins and the links buy him. AWESOME!!!

The Goat
By jsafifa, 07-10-2021

I have been trading to 1 mil coins so that I can buy Messi and a decent squad around him, after about 40 games in div 2- div 3 I have to say this is the most fucked card I have ever used. I have grinded futdrafts and have used all the top players Mbappe, Neymar, Ronaldo,.... but this card is a glitch. Messi's dribbling is so smooth you can just hold R1 move left right left right and break ankles, not only that but his acceleration is fucked if you do a fake turn to the left then go right and just run with him, the defender is gone. Now onto the good stuff, bare in mind I am on PC and I have been using him after the recent patch, let me tell you the honest truth, the patch didn't do jack shit, Messi finesse shots are still a cheat code, there is literally no way to stop them if you hit with enough power. I see no difference in his finesse shots outside the box between pre-patch and post-patch. I am glad they finally made Messi play in game as he does irl, dropping defenders and hitting insane shots. 10/10 card, if you have the coins I recommend buying, if you don't, I recommend selling your entire team to buy him.

  • Acceleration
  • Finesse shots
  • Dribbling
  • Agility
  • Pretty good strength in game
  • Shooting
  • Passing
  • Crossing
  • Height (but he takes my corners so idrc about height)

Press B to score
By sEb96, 24-10-2021

So I've been getting 'kind of' lucky with my pack pulls and one of those draws has been Messi (untradeable). I already run a Prem-La Liga-Hybrid so it was hard to fit him in at first, until I started to sort of give up on having every player on full chem (screw you OCD). So here I am running Messi on 8 chem and holy smokes he is absolutely cranked. I play on PC and almost every game feels incredibly sluggish, but not anymore now that he is on my team. I put him in as my 2nd striker, next to Sterling in a 3-5-2 with RTTK Fekir being the CAM (used to be the other striker). Every run Messi makes, every pass coming from his foot and every touch is just so relieving. That's the biggest change that I've noticed. I, personally, just feel so much more relaxed knowing that I am using a player that will actually respond to the input from my controller and player who always seems to find an open space anywhere on the field. The only instructions I gave him was to stay central and the runs that he makes are just incredible. Also, in tight 1v1 situations, if you have even the slightest opportunity to pass the ball off with a defender pressuring you non-stop, Messi won't crack. And don't even get me started on his shot. That thing just comes off so effortlessly. When he is even only somewhat clear on goal, just press the damn button and he'll probably score. This card is absolutely insane and I highly recommend it to anyone who can somehow afford him!

  • 4/4* combo
  • incredible runs
  • effortless shot
  • insane ball control
  • accurate passes
  • never feels sluggish on the ball
  • so much fun to just run around dribbling the ball
  • height, but barely noticeable
  • stamina, if not used upfront
  • overall physicality although he sometimes feels glued to the ball (make sure to use him correctly)

He is so good this year
By joelbasaurr, 10-10-2021

Packed this goat from 500 assists day 2. After playing over 100 games with him I can say that he is absolutely unreal. Played him at right striker in either a 4222 442 or 41212(2) alongside Haaland, Lewa, Chiesa, Ben Yedder, Luis Diaz and Malen. He plays quite well alongside a taller and stronger player because he is quite short so having a powerhouse alongside him is very good. Messi is very good. The pace feels amazing with hunter chem style even on 7 chem. His dribbling is so clean he sticks to the ball. Shooting is so consistent on both feet and finesse shots are absolutely insane. He also has good passing. The only down side to this card his the physical and the height depending on your play style.

Messi is GOATED
By Rauhio97, 02-10-2021

I was able to get Messi with some luck and fifa points. I packed some decent players (Rashford, De jong, Valverde etc) and sold them for the coins to get Messi. I had packed Hakimi to link with him and used that link for 8 games. After that I got otw hakimi and sold the normal to improve the squad. But now to the review. Messi in an animal in game. He turns so quick and turns defences into ashes. His shooting is amazing and he can shoot with both feet. His passing is outstanding and he rarely misplaces a pass. His dribbling is just phenomenal. He turns Varane into a potato. His acceleration is crazy. Sometimes he gets caught because of the sprint speed but its not a problem. For physicality, hes weak. If you have the money, just get him already.

The Magical GOAT
By kunai007, 10-01-2022

I would first like to apologize for this is going to be my first ever review on FUTbin and my English. This card is fantastic and I have nothing but great things to say about Mr. Lionel Messi. After playing the game since launch this year I've been saving up to try this card alongside him Aouar, Guendouzi, and Clauss. He's outstanding when he's on the ball, he's omniscient when he's off the ball. I was fearful at first of his work rates being Med/Low (similarly to Mahrez) that I was not going to be able to utilize him much. I found that it works for him because of his stamina being lowered, and he plays exactly how he is in real life. This young man simply loves to play football. He just simply plays with all his passion and it shows in game. I have tried players such as Di Natale, Ronaldo, Rashford, Mbappe, and Neymar just to name a few, and although the most similar player I can relate Messi to is Neymar, but there's just something exceptional about Messi. Perhaps this year the game has loaded LW's and not enough RW ? Or perhaps that his presence in the game makes my opponent shiver. Physicality is a little underwhelming however his aggression should be 90+. I think with his reaction being so high it allows him to be really sticky. He's a must try, be patient, and not to abuse him for his speed. He's the definition of CLASS and a modern ICON.

THE GOAT IS HERE
By ddraxl07, 30-10-2021

Got him as an untradeable and decided to make a team around him. Did. Not. Disappoint. At. All. Contributed in all of the games either by dribbling through the defense of the opposing team and giving a crucial pass, or scoring outside the box finesse shots like it was child's play. Then again, If you can't get past defenders, the defenders will cripple him physically, which happened to me a lot when I started to use him as I didn't want to pass the ball to anyone when using him. I definitely recommend using him as a cam or even a right ST, as I didn't feel like he was involved in the game much when played as a RM/RW. If you have the money to afford him, I would totally recommend at least giving him a try, found it almost impossible not to fall in love with the card.

Messi review
By klauwereys1, 02-11-2021

I packed him 2 weeks after the release of the game and I must say he's the best striker I've used this fifa. His dribbling is outstanding and you can score with him in every possible way, finesse shots, low driven, outside the box... This card is insane. With his price going down I would say he's worth the 600k. I mostly used him in div 4 and weekend league and he perfectly fits the meta and helps me get better ranks every week.

Messi the GOAT - even in February!
By zhilla, 23-02-2022

So I bought Messi in november for 410k as Mbappe didn't really feel anything special or really worth the price for me so decided to give Messi a go at ST.


And boy was/is Messi special. He's still a game changer for me. His dribbling is just something else, the ball is glued to his feet and he just turns like no one else.

With hunter his pace is still more than good enough, he feels way faster than someone like TOTY Lautaro Martinez for example, probably because of his amazing dribbling.


Also his shooting and passing is something else, he's a clinical finisher and also assists very well.


Also you would think that his 72 stamina would be a huge problem at this stage of the game but he easily lasts 90 min for me, probably because of his M/L work rates, it's like he's smart enough to preserve his energy, he usually has more stamina in the 80th min than my other strikers with 85+ stamina for some reason.


And the fact that impresses me the most is how consistent he is, most players are good for a few weeks, maybe month but Messi has been incredible for me since NOVEMBER, so I would have to say that this is probably the best card value/performance wise that I have used in FUT history and I have been playing since it since '13.


PS: Before anyone says, I've been in div 2-elite div since November, so these games have all been played at the highest level.


Also I've been playing 4222 formation IG with Messi and Chiesa at ST right now and Alexis / Insigne outwide. This is only my current formation, obviously I've changed a lot of teams since November but the only one that stayed since then is Messi, Kimpembe, Mendy and Donnarumma.

  • INCREDIBLE DRIBBLING - by far his most important stat
  • AMAZING SHOOTING
  • Even though he's got only 85 pace he feels way quicker
  • Great passing
  • Very easy to link
  • Stamina - 72 stamina is obv not the best but he can usually last for 90 min easily
  • Strength - probably his biggest weakness

Left Stick to the win.
By Choripan007, 26-07-2022

I have been using him since November when I got him untradeable from a PP. Played him in 3 positions: RW, CAM and CM. I liked him most at CAM or Right CAM in a 4231, but he has been relegated to CM b2b because I got too much untradeable players who play at RW, CAM or even ST, where I never tried him. Well, he performs 8.75/10 at RW, 9.5/10 at CAM and 9 at CM until May.

I swear this card is insane for most stages of the game. I love dribbling with him, just left stick is enough, because 4* feels like 3*, but only left sticking I've destroyed players at Elite in Rivals. His passing is also insane, compared to Xavi I can say they're the two best passers I've ever tried this FIFA, his L1+Triangle are really like in real life. Shooting is great! Messi has two type of shooting: Normal shooting from any range, that's a 8/10, and Finesse long shots, those feel amazing, almost all the goals I have with him it's because his Long Shots + Curve + Definition=90% chance of goal. His pace felt more than 85, even boosted with Catalyst I was surprised, but since may, his pace feels like 75. That's why CAM or CM are great positions for him.

His body type and height helps him on defense, but as I said, he isn't great at this, he may recover some balls and make a few interceptions, but, sadly, CM isn't his best position because of this.

His physicality was great on some times and bullshit at others, this does help him at dribbling like he used to do in real life, but against some cards like Mendy or any other strong LB, if you don't manage to dribble past him, he'll body you for sure.

10/10 Freeckicks.

9/10 Corners.

+Dribbling, if you know how to dribble without skills, this is your man.

+Passing, especially long air passes and crosses.

+Freekicks, give them curve if you can, green time finish and Messi should give you the goal.

+Shooting, especially finesse.

+Body type and height for a dribbler.

+Links of Ligue 1.

-Med/Low work rates.

-Crossed shots.

-3* WF feel like 2* WF sometimes.

-Defending, obviusly.

-Strength.
